I did try installing the Office 2007 Beta. When I rolled back to an earlier system restore point, the Beta is gone. It happens all the time, everytime I try to push the volume up, it slides back down. I have also noticed on my laptop, I have three buttons on the front to control volume, ie, lower, mute, and higher. When I push the higher, it acts the same way as the mute button, ie, mutes, unmutes.

I have poked around in the control panel, all the settings seem normal. There are no alerts in the hardware devices, I installed sndvol32 from a backup and rebooted, it didn't help. I can open the mixer and change everything but the master volume, When I push that up, it slides right back down.

You can use the volume controls to adjust the overall volume and the volume of specific sound devices in your computer. Depending on the sound hardware installed in your computer, you may have additional volume controls available on the Start menu and on the taskbar.

I have a laptop. Uninstall and reinstall the sound card doesn't seem to be an easy option.

I figured it out. I needed to go into safemode and delete the drivers first, then reinstall. Installing them over the others didn't work. thanks for your help.
