sounds like a driver issue... I'd look for a newer driver. You can also try putting the "SETVOL" command in the startup of RR to re-set it to a low level every time it starts, but chances are it won't execute until some of the music resumed is already played. Another "solution" would be to get a freeware tool on the internet to launch before RR during boot just to set the volume level. A new driver is probably the best fix (if it works) -- or you may want to look if you don't have any other application setting/messing with the volume.
