Hello yall, I'm having a very annoying issue with this now. I noticed that the Ctrl+Alt+B key does something to the volume, it seems to toggle it between two states, one of which is louder and one of which is way softer (that's about as specific as I can get) which is quite annoying because I'm using this series of keys for a different purpose. I tried searching the internet but found absolutely nothing on this - any help?

Control-Alt-B does nothing concerning volume on my PC. I just tried it. It could be a HP specific deal. The only article I could find on this issue is below. Says it is indicative of a "poorly designed keyboard" possibly. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-3162388/windows-key-shift-ctrl.html
Thank you. Seems to be a separate issue altogether, I was able to replicate that and it's a very different phenomenon to what I have here...

Also I just realised it only happens when on speakers, not on earphones, if it's useful information
