Uhm, what kind of card is this?  Who is Whelk?  You need to supply more information before we can help you.  Some programs will adjust your main volume when you change the program's volume (realPlayer comes to mind).

dogztar, nvm, think i will rephrase my question.

well, my volume control slides down by itself uncontrolled, to its maximum volume. when i move it to
the max, it starts to slide down again by its own.
i could not find anything wrong with the sound cards, and
i have even tried replacing the device driver again though
the device driver is working well says the device manager.
but still it did not work. i am currently using device driver from ESS Technology for Plug and Playback.

any more questions are welcome.

Does it start sliding immediately?  Maybe your keyboard's down arrow key is stuck...?  See what that does for you...very strange problem if its not the keyboard.  Also, make sure your keyboard is tightly connected; check it while the computer is off!

What kind of keyboard is it?

dogstarz, nope, absolutely nothing to do with my keyboard.
it is a normal, standardised keyboard.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

So you say if you click the "little yellow speaker" in the tray, turn the volume up all the way, then let go of it, it immediately starts moving down again?  That is really bizarre...You don't by chance have a Microsoft Sidewinder GameVoice installed do you?  I ran across some posts online about that device causing similar problems...

Please list any add-on software or hardware you have installed, which isn't part of Windows 95.

Still working on this,

Is this a Microsoft Internet keyboard PRO with the media and IE control buttons built in?  Maybe the volume adjustment buttons are stuck down???

User claims standard keyboard, and I guess it will remain a mystery.

I will PAQ however just in case this ever happens again, I sure haven't heard of this one.
