Windows 7: Volume mixer issue / sound control

Windows 7
Volume mixer issue / sound control

Hello guys,

I searched the forum for common problems but unfortunately I could not find any useful information for this issue.

I hope you can assist me as the Windows 7 volume mixer is freaking me out and I cant seem to find a way out with this...

I run Windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron 6400 and I use the volume buttons on front a lot to increase/decrease/mute the sounds... however this feature is not working with Windows 7 or maybe I have not fixed the correct settings.

Also I have a Logitech MX610 mouse with volume buttons on it that don`t work as well.

Here is a screenshot of the volume mixer.. I`m not sure if that`s helpful..

Any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance guys

viachy, welcome to the forums.

For the volume buttons on the laptop, is there or did you install a driver for it? It may or may not be needed, but from the sounds of it, it is.

For the mouse, what version of Setpoint do you have installed? The latest is 4.80 (for Vista, but works well in 7),

Sound works, but not 'reacting' in Volume Mixer?
So I have a strange issue where software will perform fine without any issues; the sound works fine and there's no issues whatsoever with that. However when I look at my Volume Mixer, it shows the program as normal but no activity in sound. So when sound is actually playing, the green meter doesn't...
