Just in case, be sure to reboot after those driver installs.
Also, be sure your chipset driver package is installed first. It can have an effect like this, rare but happens.
Alright. I'm not great at explaining things so I hope this is clear enough. Sorry
I just bought a new headset (arctis 3, steelseries) and it was acting a bit weird. So I reinstalled the drivers through device manager and since then the sound is fine, but the volume changes of each individual application.
Right now, if I open (for example) a game with music, in this case RS 3, and play a youtube video, the game sound level gets extremely low. After pausing the video, the sound levels seem to balans out again.
Things that I have checked:
- Same audio drivers as before the reinstalation. going back to the previous drivers doesn't fix this.
- checked communication tab in sound control. This is set to 0% sound reduction.
- checked sound blaster for any changed option.
- checked realtek HD audio configuration for any option.
Still happening and it's anoying...
P.S. if anyone has the arctis 3 headset, can you explain to me how the steelseries sound engine 3 works with this headset? doesn't seem to recognize the headset.
Yes, it does that!
Can annoy folk that didn't know where this is.
This didn't really answer anything. you just gave me a link to the windows 7 style audio manager. This did not happen about 1 hour ago before I reinstalled the drivers. This has to be a setting in windows 10 or something. im just looking for a replacement of my audio manager, I want to know why this is happening and how I can fix it.
The owner was not aware of the per app setting. They were, maybe like you trying to replace the W10 audio mixer and didn't realize that the Windows mixer was still in play. I'm not there to check this for you.
Not a setting but a control. Are you seeing this control? Remember to pull it up when the app is running or you won't see the app's own volume setting.
Maybe I was unclear in my explenation;
When multiple apps with sound are active, apps seem to have "priority" over other apps. No volume levels change in the volume settings; everything stays the same level, just some apps get louder than others without me doing anything. I know how the basic sound manager works, don't worry.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
