This started happening a while ago. I realized the volume I hear is very low. I opened up the volume control panel and I see the speakers are outputting a lower volume than "System" (it is only lowering System not other applications):

enter image description here

Not only that, some applications that have sounds won't show on the panel and the speakers are not outputting those audio. Every time I have to re-enable the audio driver (Intel(R) Display Audio) to make it work.

What is causing this behavior? How can I fix this? This is driving me crazy.

start by going into control pannel sounds and looking at (double click) your speakers, in both levels and check enhancements. Then superuser.com/questions/504004/… & superuser.com/questions/499048/… & superuser.com/questions/599647/… & Finnaly superuser.com/questions/284527/… which shows where that data is stored in registry, clearable. –  Psycogeek Jul 31 '14 at 0:21

@Psycogeek - Thanks for all the info. Although they are very helpful, they didn't solve my problem. At the end I updated my audio driver and everything is working fine now. –  Derek 朕會功夫 Aug 1 '14 at 2:06
