Volume Control Problem with SB64

Hi!  I'm currently using a Sound Blaster 64 and the volume
control seems to be somewhat buggy.  In particular, whenever I restart Windows or reboot the system, the volume setting for Wave is always reset to default (midline).  I checked Creative Labs' site but couldn't seem to find anything specific to the SB64, as far as patches and drivers are concerned.  Any ideas?  It's not a crippling problem, but it is annoying.  Thanks for any help!

go to control panal and add/remove program and the on tab windows setup remove de multimedia group. After reboot reinstall it the same way.

You couls also check in the sb setup.

Sorry, it didn't work.  The WAVE setting still gets reset to
midline when I restart or reboot.  Now I no longer get the
Volume Control icon in the system tray, though, after I reinstalled it.

I had that problem before, but I went to www.microsoft.com and downloaded the "directx" program, and that made it. I don´t konw why or how, but since I installed the Directx, the problem went.

Maybe that help you

Hmmm, when I installed Win95, I also installed DirectX 5 shortly afterwards.  I'll try again.
