I have an HP Pavillion dv4-2165dx that has the following specs:
- 2.13 Intel Core i3-330M Processor
- 4GB RAM Intel HD Graphics
- Intel 80GB SSD (Newly installed)
Ever since I got the laptop, even before I upgraded my hard drive when I play games my volume controls go out of whack.
They will jump up and down randomly and uncontrollably until I quit the game, and usually I have to force quit the game because the volume changing will make the game lose focus and just make it hard to do anything. It makes ALL games unplayable.
What is weird is this only happens for games. It doesn't happen when I am on my desktop which does the desktop effects by default, and I thought since it's using the graphics card for rendering it would do that, but maybe desktop effects doesn't use the same graphics libraries that games use? I don't know.
If anyone has any insight to how to solve this problem, it would be greatly appreciated! Everything else works great with the laptop, but this is a show stopper for me.
