In my old computer, when I was playing something, i could keep the voluem the way I want, but on my computer speaker I can make it lower, and the volume in the computer would stay the same. But in all the new computers there is no option to do this. If I change the volume on my speaker, then it automaticlaly changes the volume on my computer. I dont want that. I want the volume to stay the same on my computer, but different on my speaker. I have kept my old computer just becuase this option is there. None of the new computers ever have this. I search online and no one writes about it. And it seems like there is no article on it...........so can someone please help?..........is there an option for this? I have had this thing as a mystery for years............and when I posted on Toms hardward a few weeks back I got two different answers then.
