My computer keeps turning its volume down on its own. I went to the system tray to see why I had no sound, and noticed that the bar was at the bottom. I moved it back to the top, and it slid back down on its own. Did the same thing in the larger window that you get when you double-click the icon in the system tray. :(
Oh, and if it's important, I'm running Windows XP.

Bring your mouse cursor down to the bottom right of the monitor screen. Click on the blue circle with the white arrow in it to reveal your system tray icons. Right-click on the Volume icon. Looks like a speaker. Click on Adjust Volume Properties.
If there is no sound coming from your computer try these "simple" but common solutions first.
1. Make sure the power cord is plugged into an outlet and the speakers are turned on. *Make sure your speakers are correctly connected to the computer. *Make sure that the speaker cable is plugged into the speakers and the correct jack on the computer.
2. Make sure your computer has a sound card and that it is enabled and working properly: To open Device Manger...
*Start *Control Panel *System and Maintenance *Device Manager *Expand the Sound, video and game controllers category. If a sound card is listed, you have one installed. *Check the status of the driver and update if necessary.
3. Make sure that the speaker volume is not muted or turned down too low. To open Volume Control... *Click the Start button , *Click Control Panel *Click Hardware and Sound *Under Audio Devices and Sound, click Adjust system volume. *Under Main Volume, move the slider up or down to raise or lower the volume.
If you still have no sound after checking the solutions above, you more than likely have a bad sound card.
I foudn this in anther forum:
I have an ASUS motherboard P5E3 Premium. The audio that came with it was the Sound Max audio. I also noticed abnormal sounds coming from the speakers. They included sounds during hard drive activity and also with mouse movement. They were not loud but noticable. I searched all over the web but didn't find the answer. I stumbled across the fix myself. I also have vista-64. In the sound control panel > speaker properties > levels... there is a pc beep slide bar. I noticed that if it is disabled then the abnormal sound went away completely. Problem solved. Hope this helps.
Ok try turning the sound control up either on your speakers if it has volume control or go to options on the game menu and then go to sound option and turn it up, also if you are talking about that on your speaker volume control is up but sound is low try also bottom right of the screen if using windows find the little picture of a speaker, place mouse arrow over it right click and increase volume on system. Hope this helps you.
If you are using windows then double click on speaker icon in system tray near TIME display.. it will open a window, now see if there is a check box marked as MUTE or volume level set to low (in Master Volume & Wave ).. Un-check if mute is selected or level up the volume slider... if there is no icon then use control panel to go for sound settings.. if it say No Device then use your computer driver CD and install sound driver and restart your PC... please inform if it does work.
