I have been struggling with trying to find a fix for this for a long time now. I have searched various forums and tried the couple suggestions that seemed to be offered for similar issues but nothing has worked. I have no other serious issues with Windows 7 but this is REALLY annoying and making me want to re-install XP.
Regardless of what I'm doing my volume level continuously changes. It's too loud..then too quiet. Sometimes it's fine for long periods then other times it changes every 5-10 seconds. It does this all on it's own with me doing NOTHING! I have tried putting the setting in the sound communications tab to "do nothing" and have also disabled all sound effects in the speaker properties to eliminate that loudness equalization option but nothing has worked. This also happens in a wide variety of programs so I doubt this is an application problem. It happens in several games, it happens watching Youtube videos and happens randomly with any number of websites with sound. It goes so quiet I can't hear so I turn it up..then 10 seconds later the volume goes back to where it was and blasts my eardrums out. I can't keep the volume at a steady level and it's DRIVING ME INSANE! Hlep!
BTW, I'm using Windows 7 64 bit with onboard Realtek HD sound. I should also have all updated drivers
as far as I know. Anyone have any info on this?
