General Discussion / Anybody having trouble with sound levels after Windows 10 upgrade?
« Last post by Dave on August 27, 2015, 01:36:31 PM »
Hi, kids...

Since I upgraded "my" computer to Windows 10 I have had an unusual problem.  I'd be watching something on the TWIT network (Leo Laporte's site) and if I paused it, when I "unpaused" it to continue the sound would increase in volume noticeably.  This was quite annoying and I was considering blaming Leo personally for a while until I stumbled on a similar problem mentioned on the web that had nothing to do with the source of the audio.

I have often "uninstalled" the driver for a sound device, (then rebooted so Windows will reinstall it - hopefully correctly) to fix an audible problem of some sort over the years, but this didn't occur to me this time.  When I stumbled, the website was

I didn't bother with the earlier solutions listed, but the uninstall/reinstall the sound device's driver solution (detailed right under "If the issue is still unresolved" did ring that old bell.  I did that and the problem that's been bugging me is gone now!

For your consideration...

Hello All,

I just purchased a three pack of Acronis True Image.  In my order, I asked Linda Barlow to make the order two copies for PCs and one copy for MAC.
When she sent me the serial numbers, she added a note that any one of them could be used for the MAC.  Just go to the Acronis site, download the desired True Image platform and then activate it by using any one of the 3 codes.

I have created my first Acronis True Image 2016 backup for the Mac which images both my Mac OSX partitions and my Windows 10 partitions.

I have also created a Acronis Recovery USB which also has Apple's recovery tools included.
Windows XP and Vista users can upgrade to WIN10 free after upgrading to WIN7.

Sounds pretty good to me...
