    Question Sound incredible loud :S

    Hello.. couldent find any threads about this so here I go...

    I recently installed windows vista on the car-pc.. now the sound is epicaly high :S I can barely handle 5% on the sound level and everytime the pc comes out from hibernate the sounds goes to 100% sometimes ... and sometimes 100% and then the 5% that it was on when I hibernated. This aint nice when it auto-continue from the last track when I entered hibernation...

    - any ideas?

    I think (on my XP installation) that I had master volumne to 100% and then controlled winamp though the wave sound control... not sure though but then it worked perfectly... back then (old roadrunner) I did some mastersound setting as well... I recall having a sound problem that was solved with some setting being adjustet in some ini file. Is RR set to control the master controle setting somewhere? Think I could work around the problem if it controlled the wave setting...

    Hope someone can help me cant really use the PC as it is now...

    Thx

    The INI is voltable.ini -- configures the stepping of the master/main volume control.
    You can try setting a resume delay to see if it helps with the volume jumping on resume, but this is most likely NOT related to RR as it doesn't do any volume changes in resume/hibernation. This could however be related to the DRIVER of the sound card (and/or any sound/control application from the manufacturer that is running). Another possibility is that it is related to the PLAYER you're using -- which you can test real quick by trying another player.

    i had the same issue with windows 7 on my old setup:
    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/soft...ic-resume.html
    I did not solve it, because i had a new system ordered at the time. My new system is also running win7 and does not have the same issue. which leads me to think this may be hardware related issue.
