Windows 7: Really big and annoying problem with mixer!

Really big and annoying problem with mixer!

So i have been always having a headset with a sound controller on it, but i also always had a media keyboard, which let me control the audio mixer in windows with 3 buttons, 1 is mute, second is lower the sound with 3 steps, third is to make it louder with 3 steps.

So yesterday my headset with sound control broke. So i took my new headset (which doesn't have controller) and pluged it in, the problem was that i could hear sound when it was on ZERO, and then hear a LOT of sound when i pressed the button so it would be louder, and MAX when i pressed it again.

So the main problem is, The audio mixer in my windows 7 makes so that the sound is very near to max when it is about 10% (out of 100). I have been searching on this problem but didnt find anything. I have onboard sound on an M2N-SLI and this has nothing to do in faulty cable/headset/driver.

In XP there was an option called WAVE ( i think ) which i could lower and then everything was fine, and there was another which itself was the "main" sound that i could control.

PS.: When i had the controllable headset, i pushed the sound to max in the PC, but i never lowered it IN the pc, i used the controller on the headset.

Anyone know a fix for this?

Check yours to see if you have this.
tried that, unfortuantely when i lower the sound to 20 or below, it all gets reseted and goes back to original. ANyway thanks for the advice

With it off.... it may make it louder (depends on the input material) but you should have more control.

At least it works that way here.

Have you tried reinstalling the sound driver? and/or checking the vendor for a possible updated driver.
