Turn everything up as high as it will go on the software side, ie windows sndvol32 and winamp/whatever then hide the main hardware control (amp/speakers whatever) or somehow cut it off from outside access, tape it up or something like that
dubstar, first things first... how versed in computer sh!t is yer cousin???
If not much, I have a solution. But you will suffer also.
O.K. Open "Control Panel" then click open "Sounds and Audio Devices". The open window will of course have the "Volume" tab opened for you to see. At the bottom of the window is "Speaker Settings", click the "Advanced" button and set the "Speaker setup" for "No Speakers".
heh, i meant tape/fix something over the volume control making it un-reachable.
If you hide the volume control from the systray most people dont know where to find it.
BUT even with that limited you can still turn the amp/speakers up.
well the problem is, different programs change different volumes... for instance, Kazaa's volume changes the master volume, and another program (cant think of it) changes the WAV(mp3,rm,ect) volume.. i just want to set a max on the master volume...
also, i do not have external volume control. only on the software side..
