How To Stop 8.1 From Changing Volume Setting

Dec 16, 2013

I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 from Win 8 (shoulda done more homework, but too late now!). Now when my speakers are plugged into my headphone jack, my volume control gets set back to 42ish. When I try to set it higher, I get a nanny warning about high volume causing hearing damage, and have to select "allow", which lets me change the setting, but sets it right back when I go to sleep mode or shut down. Most annoying as I use my laptop with speakers all the time as an entertainment center. Samsung, Windows 8.1 64bit, just updated audio driver, too.

It's NOT in the CONTROL PANEL | WIDOWS UPDATE | Settings panel.

Audio :: Microphone Volume Very Low?

Jun 23, 2013

I've read that you have to go to the microphone, double click on it, go to the levels tab, and move the lever all the way up, as long as the boost lever. I don't have the boost. Only the microphone is present as you can see in the screenshot. That doesn't work.

I just downloaded Windows 8 last Thursday so all of my updates are installed. I updated to the latest drivers for my sound card thing, which I guess is intergrated. Now, before you tell me it's my mic, before Windows 8 I was using xubuntu until I could afford Windows 8. My microphone was fine. It picked up great. I could hide it behind my monitor (which is atleast 3 or 4 feet away) and it would still pick up fine. Now in order for it to pickup my voice like it did behind the monitor I have to have it literally 1 cm away.

Audio :: Getting Random Volume Fluctuations

Jun 28, 2013

I've been having random volume fluctuations with things like youtube and iheart radio, as well as the occasional games. I've been searching the forums for a solution but the closest i can find is on the W7 forums, (Volume level continuously changes - Windows 7 Forums), which is the same problem I'm having with windows 8 pro. The last post on that thread is from September of 2012, so really I'm just curious if any new info or solutions have been made available. Like the op in that thread I as well disabled my communications and turned of the enhancements. I also uninstalled my audio drivers, restarted, and when it rebuilt the drivers they were newer than the ones i had. (Realtek 6.2.9200.16497, current driver) Yet still the problem persists. Team Speak 3 is the only web voice chat service i use, but that's only on when running a game.

Audio :: Volume Bar At Top Left Corner

Jun 14, 2014

So instead of explaining what I'm looking at right now I'll post a picture here:

So as you can see that bar there is putting my volume automatically up to 100% every single time I touch it. Also, recently this has made the computer unable to drag the top or side or have any Windows 8 features available this includes both Windows buttons on my keyboard. I have tried cleaning my keyboard as that seemed to work last time on fixing this problem for maybe a month, however it worked for only an hour this time. It also seems note worthy that I cannot capitalize these letters at all: z x c v m , . and then I can't capitalize certain letters with certain shift bars so I can capitalize s with my left shift but not my right this happens with many other letters too but the ones I listed above cannot be capitalized at all.

Audio :: Reducing Volume Amplification?

Feb 15, 2014

My audio output is my graphics card via HDMI (ATI HD5770) which is connected with my TV.

I need some software/filters or something else to reduce volume amplification in movies?

Example, when actors in movies just talking then volume is ok, but if there a war scene then volume jumping up.

I've already tried Loudness Equalization, something like this Normalize Windows Volume With These Simple Tricks without success.

Maintenance :: Scanning And Repairing Volume On Startup

Nov 7, 2013

i recently got a new laptop "asus vivobook" that came preloaded with windows 8.

The laptop comes with a hybrid 24 GB ssd (8GB of those are for the system files,windows 8 is installed on,the remaining are in a 2nd partition for recovery) i deleted the recovery partition and made a recovery on an 8 GB usb drive,because im dual booting a different linux os alongside windows.

I used rEFInd boot manager to boot the 2 operating systems,everything boot and works fine.

However,since the dual booting started i noticed that the windows 8 loading time has became a bit slower,when i choose to sart windows 8 the asus logo appears and under it this message

"Scanning and repairing volume (?Volume{...large hex identifier..}): 100% Complete"

it stays for 2,3 seconds and then windows 8 start,i ran a chkdsk for the c drive,but that didnt solve the problem.

Audio :: Change (reduce) Maximum Volume?

Sep 3, 2013

So, the system volume in the system tray goes from 1-100. 1 is comfortable. 3 is loud. 6 is ear-splitting.

Is there anyway I can redefine the values for the system volume and set the maximum to like... 10?

Any time I hit the volume buttons on my keyboard to lower the volume, it goes from 1 to 0 and I can't hear anything, so I hit the volume up button and it goes from 0 to 3 and it's way too loud.

Right now, I have the volume set to about 3 most of the time, with individual apps' volume controls set really low (like a game set to volume "0.5" out of 100).

This is just ridiculous. There must be a way to redefine the value for the system volume. Some settings file I can edit or something, if not a nice GUI method.

Audio :: HP Beats - Volume Is Set At A Certain Level In Windows 8

Oct 5, 2013

My new laptop seems hardwired to think that if I set the volume to 20, so long as I have headphones in, I want my volume at 20 for all sounds, ever. This makes music which varies from quiet and loud feel extremely alien and even ruins the feel of some videos and games. But it's most notable when watching a youtube video and I change the volume. Turning it up makes the video louder for a split second before returning to what it was, turning it down? Well, that works for a few seconds and returns to being too loud.

My new laptop uses HP Beats Audio. While I'm currently blaming Windows 8 for this problem, it'd be silly not to mention it. Unfortunately, a google search didn't get me any answer for beats either except how to uninstall it.

This doesn't happen on my old Laptop, which runs Windows 7 and appears to lack a special audio device. Looking online for a fix has only returned me nonsense about Windows 8 reducing volume for communications devices (a feature which I have off). In my search, I found this bit of information from

"Incidentally, Windows 8 new Metro-style volume controls lack many of the more sophisticated controls that are available via the desktop. There's no way to control the volume of individual Metro-style apps, for example, and that's true of both the new Metro volume controls and the legacy desktop interfaces. Instead, the system automatically controls app volume, muting or lowering the volume of background apps when needed."

So... I suppose in short what I need to know is, how do I turn this "feature" off?
