Description of problem:
Audio does not play until I have run the sound card config utility.
By that I mean that everytime I restart my computer I must rerun the

still playing, I open the sound card config utility, the sound
immediatly starts. I have never had any errors while setting up my

it while running Windows.

utility, the sound kicks in.
I believe that you need to raise the volume. If you go to the Main
Menu -> Sound & Video -> Volume Control, you will be able to raise the
I'm going to mark this report as a duplicate of another bug regarding
the default sound setting being zero.
