Almost no sound, this time (eCS 1.2, SoundMax, desktop). The hardware should be fine. With W7 the sound is fine. A <Alt-F1>restore didn't help. Cold and warm reboots don't help. The master volume (and all (?) other ones) seems to be 100%, but it sounds like far less than 10%. It's almost mute. AFAICT it happened quite suddenly, without an obvious reason. There was no intentional change of any multimedia component. What's probably wrong?

What do the lines  starting with PARMSTRING= under the various headings in x:\mmos2\mmpm2.ini say?

ie,
PARMSTRING=BALANCE=50,VOL=80,INPUT=LINE,OUTPUT=SPEAKER
PARMSTRING=BALANCE=50,VOL=80,INPUT=LINE,GAIN=70,OUTPUT=SPEAKER

etc
ensure the VOL= is set to something rational, especially if you have GAIN.

PS, boot in maintence mode or from another source to make changes to mmpm2.ini

At the moment the system is mute, so no system sounds at all (monitor volume 100%, the "expected" bad result was being able to hear something). I'll even consider a reinstall, albeit that's hard without a working CD drive.

The setting below is the only string which matched the search string "VOL=".

[ICHAMPMIX01]
 VERSIONNUMBER=3.1.8
 PRODUCTINFO=SoundMax Integrated Digital Wave Audio
 MCDDRIVER=AMPMXMCD
 VSDDRIVER=AUDIOIF
 PDDNAME=ADISND1$
 MCDTABLE=MDM
 RESOURCENAME=ICHAmpMixer01
 DEVICEFLAG=2
 DEVICETYPE=9
 SHARETYPE=3
 RESOURCEUNITS=2
 RESOURCECLASSES=2,1,1
 VALIDCOMBINATIONS=1,2,2,1
 CONNECTORS=5,4,,0,9,,0,8,,0,10,,0,7,,0
 PARMSTRING=BALANCE=50,VOL=100,INPUT=MIC,GAIN=50,OUTPUT=SPEAKER

"Solved": last time W7 still produced normal sounds, but now it doesn't anymore. Probably a hardware problem.
