Specs: Windows Vista

I have a Gateway M-7315u,64 bit vista. using the slider,i turn the volume up to 100%,and you can see the volume go back down to 0% by itself.Even go to volume adjustment in control panel,adjust the volume up and down it goes. Anyone have this issue,i tried everything,and 4 e-mails to Gateway,no response. This laptop is only 3 months old. Thank You for your time,,Mark I even uninstalled the driver and let it reinstall itself again,Conexant High Def. Smart Audio 221

... source from "net"

... First start the application with which you are having audio issues.

... In Vista, audio can be adjusted on a per application basis. So take a look at the volume mixer by clicking the volume icon at the bottom left of your screen in the notification area (by the time) and clicking the “mixer” link.

... Here you should see the volume settings for running applications. Ensure the volume is set appropriately for the application in question.

... If you have more than one playback device, the volume might be going to the wrong one. You should see activity in the Sound Playback tab

... select the desired playback device and press “Set Default” to change it. This default actually applies to any running applications

...when you set the default playback device it will apply to the list of running applications you see in the mixer and not to any others

... ps .... still using xp

I was just wondering if you ever got this issue taken care of. I'm having the exact same problem with my M-7315u.
