Windows 7: I can hear 'Sound' but can open sound menu to adjust it

Windows 7
I can hear 'Sound' but can open sound menu to adjust it


I am having a weird problem.

I can actually hear sounds and talk with other people. It all works fine.

But I can open any sound menu's or options.

None of these icons/ menus are working.

Please see attachment, I am not very good at english and pictures say a thousand words.

EDIT : More info,
I have Asus Crosshair III mobo and it has SupremeFX X-Fi Sound card. I have soundmax drivers and creative audio panel which works fine.

Thanks for your time.

First of all, those are the Windows' sound settings. You should try to adjust them via your Creative/Soundmax settings.

Second, here's the latest driver:

Just go through the menus til you get to your audio drivers.
