    Recording device audio volume resetting.


    Yesterday I got a new microphone and I set up the audio interface and it was still to loud so I right clicked on the speaker (bottom right) and changed the recording device audio to a certain volume however after a few hours it resets to 100% volume how can I fix this issue?

    Could be a program is resetting it. Check for programs such as Skype, Chrome, etc.

    BTW, you have Realtek PC sound card.

    No, I would not uninstall it. Just mentioned that Skype could potentially be something that may cause the issue.

    Well... I went into the device properties and disable allows programs to take control of this device. So let's see how this works.

    "Refresh" the sound driver. Go to the Device Manager, Sounds section, RIGHT click on the entry for Realtek and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This fixes a lot of problems and MAY fix yours.

    I don't see the Realtek audio device.

    Maybe that is the problem. Based on your System Specs MSI motherboard, MSI lists Realtek as the sound hardware. If you only have "High Definition Audio Device" driver then the first step is to install the Realtek sound drivers.
