I sometimes play Prince of persia in my spare time. And recently the volume nob on my speaker has worn out making the volume control a mess. If I touch it to adjust the volume it won't follow. Now my problem is: When I play GAME(prince of persia) It takes over(hijacks) the volume setting, I have set the volume low using the volume control(located on right side of taskbar).

I want to prevent the game from overriding my current volume level.

UPDATE

It seems my observation is wrong. The game didn't override the volume setting. The game sound appears louder than usual as compared to that while playing songs or watching movies(I use iTunes and VLC media player for that). It might be because of the AutoVolumeLevelling or AVL feature of the iTunes and VLC.
The game might not be using AVL and streaming audio on high(at the currently selected max volume setting in windows (audio)volume control).

You should be able to adjust the in-game volume settings. The real solution is to replace the speaker if the volume control isn't an acceptable solution. –  Ramhound Jan 16 at 16:57
    
"Used to play"? –  Robusto Jan 16 at 17:10
    
@Ramhound Yes. I'm going to replace my speakers, sooner or later, but for now I just thought there might be some thing I can do to control the system volume. –  vvy Jan 16 at 17:24
    
@vvy - Yes. You are already doing your the only solution by using the volume control within windows. –  Ramhound Jan 16 at 17:26
    
@Robusto grammar mistake ? I've edited. –  vvy Jan 16 at 17:43
