Windows 7: Full volume no matter where my slider is (USB)

Full volume no matter where my slider is (USB)

I have a usb headset, it's running on the generic windows 7 USB audio drivers and it plays audio and records from the mic just fine. The only problem is, no matter where my volume slider is in the system tray they play at full volume.

What this means is I have to adjust the volume inside each application in order to not go deaf. Windows sounds are still terribly loud, and programs where I CAN'T adjust volume are a nightmare.

They are A4Tech HD-800 headphones and they're supposed to run on the C-Media CM112 drivers, but they aren't 7 compatible.

Any help is appreciated!

Please right click the speaker icon in the system tray near the clock and choose playback devices. Make sure the headset is selected as the default device. Post a screenshot if ya want.

Windows Updates Kill Volume Slider
Ever since February 2011, whenever I install windows updates, my volume slider in the tray stops working. Not only the slider but also the right click context menu. I did some research into last month's (April 2011) round of updates and narrowed it down to being associated with Office 2007. ...

Show sound slider when adjusting volume?
I used to have a volume bar in XP, but those drivers no longer work. I have no visual indicator of system volume. That's significant when viewing online media because the system may be maxed out, while the media player may not. I'd absolutely love the Win7 sound slider to show up when I turn...
