I'd be really grateful for any help.
when i am listening to music or watching a film the volume coming out of my speakers randomly increases and decreases, I'm not really sure if it's a problem with my speakers or my sound card. I've checked the volume in the bottom right corner and it remains pulled up to the top.
After doing some googling i found something that stopped sound levels changing when different sound sources were opened - for example when i am listening to a song on itunes and watch a film on windows media player but that does not seem to have helped.
I am totally out of ideas but if there was any way to check if my sound card was functioning properly that could be good. I have checked and all of my audio drivers are up to date. The volume knob on my (5.1 creative) speakers is very sensitive. Perhaps it is something so simple as needing new cables?
Anyway i would be very grateful if anyone could help. I'm using windows 7. the computer is around 5 years old. The speakers are around ten years old.
