I want to stop volume mixer from combining volume levels

Question: I want to stop volume mixer from combining volume levels

I year ago i was trying to save power. I was having issues with my cpu overheating. I went somewhere in my pc, i forgot where and in an effort to lower power consumption, i combined sounds in the volume mixer. The cpu issue has been solved. Now i want to
open 3 web pages that all use sound and i want to be able to have 3 different volume levels for each. I've forgotten where I went to to combine the volume levels. That what i want to know: where to go, in windows,k where i can un-combine the volume levels.
thanks much.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm running Windows XP Professional with Realtek HD Audio. In my Master Volume mixer when I go to "Options" and then "Properties" Realtek HD Audio Output is selected as the Mixer device and "Playback" is ticked. "Recording" is shaded. When I bring the volume adjusters up there's all the sliders and under each slider is a box marked "Mute". If I change the Mixer device to Realtek HD Audio input "Recording" is ticked and "Playback" is shaded. When I bring up the volume adjusters for recording there's the sliders, each with a box marked "Mute" underneath, except all of the sliders, except "Recording" are shaded out. "CD Volume" "Mic Volume" "Line Volume" and "Stereo Mix" are all shaded.

In Realtek's Mixer those devices don't even HAVE sliders.

Any ideas why I can't adjust my levels?

Answer:Not Able to Adjust Volume Levels in Mixer.

I'm not following you entirely, but have you tried (R) clicking on the "mute box" selection when it appears? Does the speaker icon in the task bar have a red "X" on it? Have you gone to "system" in the control panel...than selected 'hardware' to get a look at 'device manager' and what see what it's saying? On your sound mixer click on everything that has a red "x" on it. I'm not meaning to oversimplify, but I think you will discover an easy way out of this problem once you know how to handle the Window mixer console.

Hi there everyone,

After trying to solve this problem which sounds like a easy adjustment, this tech is pulling his hair out over Vista again.

Anyhow, here's the problem. Anytime I try to adjust the volume level in Vista sound mixer the volume level bar for a program, headphones etc it will just automatically side back down to the bottom of the device/program volume bar. I also noticed when I try to adjust one device or program volume level all device/program volume bars go up together, rather then just the one I'm trying to adjust.

I have been goggling for answers to this problem for hours now, so I need some advise.

Thanks

BTW I attached a screen shot of what my volume mixer always shows so you can see what I am talking about.

Hello everyone! I run Windows 8.1, and have been having a strange issue lately. A reformat and fresh install did nothing to help this.

Seemingly at random, in my volume mixer, specific programs will drop to 10% level. If I turn the volume all the way back up, it'll only go back down a bit later. I've tried this with / without my realtek drivers. Also, I've set the option under "Communications" in playback devices to "Do nothing", and this still hasn't helped. Any VoIP programs I use I've turned off ducking, and yet the problem still persists.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you!

Answer:Volume mixer becomes unresponsive when I change volume

The G35 headsets I found, doing a search, are 7.1 surround sound headphones, USB connected and with a volume control in the headset cable. Is this what you have? If it is you should apparently be controlling the volume from the headset's volume control and not the PC???

Is your sound generally working but just not for this program? Anyway, go to your start page and just type "volume" (without the quotes). You do not need to type into a search box or anything else... just be on that page and a menu will pop up. Then, click on the options boxed in red and your "mixer" will pop up:

Question: n100 volume levels

The sound levels out the internal speakers are the lowest I've ever seen on any laptop.  Does anyone know a way to fix this?  I've got the volume cranked all the time, yet still struggle to hear most things.  I understand that it's a laptop, but c'mon.  It should be at least twice what it is. To answer the questions of anyone reading this post, yes.  I've checked the volume levels.  Main volume and wave volume are both maxed out.  It affects all sources.  It almost seems like it's been intentionally reduced at the driver level.  I've had both versions of the n100, so it wasn't a quirk of my particular machine, as far as I can tell.  I know this isn't exactly a top of the line machine, but it's my work lappy and I'm stuck with it for a while, so if this can be fixed I'd sure like to.

Before the update, I could hit the speaker shortcut button on my laptop and it would automatically turn on my volume to a preset level or mute the volume. Now, when I hit that button it does neither and it no longer pops up on my screen to show me that it is on or off like it did before. In order to control the volume now, I have to manually hit the plus or minus buttons. Anyone know a fix for this? Thanks!

Question: DivX volume levels

I am using FairUse Wizard to rip my own DVDs to DivX avi files to store on my laptop for trips. It works great, is easy to use, blah blah blah. The problem is the volume levels are so low. Is there an application out there (free hopefully) that will let me read in the Avi DivX file and raise the volume level? Even with headphones I have to turn the volume way way up to hear it.
 

Answer:DivX volume levels

I know that with capturing .wav files the line-in volume makes a huge difference. What is the DVD/CD and System volume set at in your audio properties in the taskbar? Raise that to max and see if it helps. That is my only guess having not used that program before.

edit: I know that deals mostly with output volume, but hey, its worth a try.

Whenever I download mp3 files and play them back, I find a great deal of variation in volume level. Some play back much softer or lower than I would like and occasionally one will play back too loud. I'm trying to find a good program to use that will allow me to adjust mp3 volume levels before starting the burn process so that after I burn CD's and then play them back I won't have to keep adjusting the volume. In other words I wan't to be able to burn 20 or so tracks so that they will all play back at essentially the same level of volume. ( I guess that these programs would also make it possible to eliminate a certain amount of hiss, especially in cases where the volume level needs boosting.)

I've been told that there are programs that will let me make such adjustments. I would appreciate recommendations as to which of these work the best and have the clearest instructions. Basically, how do these programs work? A simple 3- or 4-step explanantion, if possible, would help me a lot.

Thank you,

Motophoto used a Sony burner for all conversions and cannot understand why DV on desktop is ok but on the VHS & VHS-C?s the volume is unacceptable. They played the DVD's on their equipment and the volume was at an acceptable level. They feel they have met their obligations in that the DVD's play on the laptop & player. I have asked them to provide me with the model number of the Sony burner.
It is critical that the DVD's work on the desktop in that it is has more memory, larger screen and keyboard. My goal in these conversions is to edit and produce my own DVD's. I have successfully completed this on the initial DV to DVD conversion.

You can set volume levels for all audio sources separately. Make sure you have set the soundcard master volume to ~80%, then max out the separate sound sources. Use the Creative Sound Mixer for this.

Answer:Name Not Available in Volume Mixer

It's the Patched/rpcss.dll virus.
 
You can mute that channel to turn off the ads, but it won't get rid of the infection.
 
What's going to have to happen is you'll have to run an antivirus scan- AVG free will catch this virus- but it will remove the rpcss.dll which is a critical system file. After removal you won't be able to boot to Windows. You'll need to go to Startup Repair, select the command prompt option, and copy the rpcss.dll file from the X: drive or Recovery Windows partition into your C:\Windows\System32 folder.

If you want assistance I would download and run Farbar x64 (available on this site in the Downloads area) and post the log either here or start a thread in Malware Removal Logs forum. You can probably message a moderator to move this thread there after posting the log.
 
Good Luck!

Hi all,

after so long I've been using Windows 8, I noticed this feature(?) in this OS. See attachment.

My question is: Why is every application's volume is half of the device volume? I tried moving the bars of the app's volume to match the device volume, but it will go back to the "half"-state again. Any idea?

Is there any way to solve this?

Answer:Volume mixer

You can move the slider for System sounds, Friends and Chrome up to the level of Speakers.

Question: Mixer volume

I seem to be having problems with the mixer volume fluctuating up and down when i am using msn messenger. The problem started to occur after i had installed msn plus. I do not recall accepting any .pif files or anything that resembled a virus but assume now that i have a virus affecting the mixer. I have run norton virus scan and i also now use avast virus scan too and although it picked up some trojans i still seem to have this mixer problem. Any help in solving this problem is much appreciated.

Hello. I recently have noticed that a sound started playing when i first log on that never has before and its one that i do not recognize as any common or default windows sound. I noticed also that my volume doesn't go nearly as loud even with it all the way up, and I have a thing in my volume mixer call "Name not available." I don't hear any ads or notice any major performance drops. Malware bytes and Kaspersky antivirus didn't find anything either. attached are the FRST logs.Thank you for your help.

Question: Volume Mixer

Hey, I muted a program using the Volume Mixer(the speaker icon next to the time), but now I cant unmute it because it doesnt appear with my other applications even when its open.

I have tried restarting, I am just wondering if there is another way to unmute things like in control panel or if there is a way to make it appear with the other applications in the Volume Mixer.

Thanks.

Answer:Volume Mixer

It happened once for me with Firefox. I couldn't see it in the mixer. But the next time I started it (not sure if I had rebooted), I had several other programs closed. I just saw it there, normally, and I could unmute it.

I'm not sure if this happened with 5.55, but with 5.56, when I hit the volume up or down on my keyboard to turn the sound down for everything, it turns down winamp's volume bar too. Sometimes I can move winamp's volume bar up and down and it won't even be working. What causes this? It's pretty annoying for the music to turn down twice as fast or winamp's volume bar to not even work at all.EDIT: Moved to a more appropriate forum

I've had a problem with Youtube volume levels in Firefox, for many versions, now. I have just updated to 57.0.3 (64 bit). The sound level on Youtube videos is lower than with other browsers ( Chrome. for example). I've gone in to the volume mixer and raised the slider there, to equalize them.. But, a little later, the problem returns.
Is there some fix that I've missed while googling?

Is there is some way to make windows to not remember the per app volume settings.
I like it that I can adjust the volume for every app but I don't like it that windows remembers the settings I set(next time I start the same program,the old settings will be applied)

For example I mute some program and then close it after a while and the next time I start it,I start to wonder why there is no sound until I check the status in the sound mixer.

Answer:Make windows to not remember the volume levels

That is a function of the individual programs.

Thank you in advance,

I am trying to transfer my band's backing tracks from a Sony MiniDisc Player to my new IdeaPad y550 (Windows 7) using 1/8" stereo jacks from the MiniDisc Player to the stereo mic in on the laptop. My record levels are fine (optimum) but playback of the file results in considerably lower volume. The VU meters during playback are at the levels I recorded but actual audio volume is much lower.

Same problem regardless of the software I am using (Sound Recorder, CakeWalk, WavePro, etc.) so I am hoping it is some global setting I can't find...

-- Brad

Answer:Low Playback Volume After Recording at Optimum Levels

It may just be the recording level and you need to increase the playback level in whatever program you are using to playback. I do a lot of audio work (I have a recording studio using Cakewalk Sonar 8.5) and what you are seeing happens at times.

Make sure your record levels are "optimal" for your system. If you use Audacity, I think it has an option to "normalize" the levels after you record and before you save it. Normalizing will set the volume levels and should eliminate the low playback problems.

I have a video clip that was originally on DVD that I converted to wmv for use in a PowerPoint presentation. Is there any easy way to raise the volume of the video file? I have several other clips to play that are all at a normal volume level, but this one is barely audible. I'd like to get them within the same range.

The speakers I'll be using in the meeting will already be at nearly their max volume. The clip is also from one of our employee's TV appearances, and we have permission from the TV station...so there's no illegal activity going on here.
 

Answer:Changing volume levels on a video clip

For a WMV it's gonna be a bitch: you're going to have to demux it into audio/video streams, do a boost on the audio (tricky since you didn't specify what the audio track is, it can/could be Windows Media audio, mp3, etc etc), then remux it back with the video track. There's no easy way to just boost the audio as it presently exists in the file, i.e. you can't work on the audio while it's still part of the AV stream.

If the normal volume on the machine doing the playback can't get it loud enough, one solution is - using MPC-HC of course - to boost the volume to whatever level is appropriate:

That should help, and it can definitely make low volume audio tracks pretty loud. I know older versions of WMP had an "enhancement" that could alter the playback levels with some volume boost, but WMP12 in Windows 7 is lacking that feature. Might still exist in WMP11 on Vista and WMP10 and prior versions on XP maybe.

I'd say grab MPC-HC from http://xvidvideo.ru (latest version, just the .exe) and use that to get it done unless you're really going full bore on doing the edit of the actual audio stream after demuxing it.

The Device is my Headset a Logitech G930. when try to turn the volume louder on this slider:

Doesn't get louder like the headphone used to get.
Well i hope anyone can help here, thank you very much.

Answer:Volume Mixer Problem

That's for analog speaker output, you have USB headphones now, different ballgame. In Control Panel > Sound, you should be able to find those headphones and adjust from there. Alternatively, there should be a driver and program for them too, sou you could set them from there.

After noticing a tutorial published by Brink for reverting back to the old windows 7 master volume and volume mixer I wondered if it would be possible to change something so that when I clicked the volume system icon, I got the volume mixer right away and not the master volume bar.

I know it is possible to make a shortcut using "%windir%\System32\SndVol.exe -t " as a target and I also noticed running SndVol.exe from system32 seems to open the mixer as well. It looks like windows puts a -f flag onto SndVol.exe when you click the system tray icon.

As posted by Brink





HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\MTCUVC

EnableMtcUvc DWORD

0 = old
1 = new (default)





This allows windows 10 to somehow use the old master volume and mixer but I can't seem to locate where windows applies the modified -f flag when clicking the system volume icon. I did notice however, when you then click on the "mixer" link the sndvol.exe relaunches with this as its parameters "​SndVol.exe -r 77463382 0 {0.0.0.00000000}.{5fc3904c-eda2-46fb-b353-10e266407892}"

Hello,

For some reason when I turn the system volume to 0, other programs do not also go down to zero.

In the volume mixer, when master volume is at full, other programs are at full too, and when I move the master volume slider down, the other sliders go down too...

However when master volume is at 0, I can still hear sounds from other programs (itunes, dvds, browsers) as if they are stuck at 1 volume and not 0

Setting the other sliders to 0 mutes them, and hence when I up the master volume, they stay at 0 and do not go up

Anyone having/solved this?

I have some technical difficulty in fixing the Realtek Driver. I recently bought the ASUS P8P67 motherboard (BIOS version 1204) and installed the provided Audio driver that came with the box which is version 6.0.1.6196.
Other specs displayed in Realtek info page is

DirectX version 11.0
Audio Controler : HD Audio
Audio Codec: ALC892

I am running Window 7 Ultimate on x64 bits with the Sandy Bridge i7-2600 core. Noise Suppression and Acoustic Echo cancellation are disabled.

My problem with this driver is that from time to time, the volume on the Realtek mixer drops down immediately as shown on the screenshot.

Also, to certain programs that I am using, like Battlefield 2, the volume keeps resetting to very low even though I set it to volume level 28 before I closed the program. When I stop the recording or I closed the Midomi website (from screenshot), the tab drags back itself to 28 for iTune and the music played back at normal volume - how can I fix it?

How can I disable Realtek from keeping resetting my volume to low for the programs that I am using? Is this a bug? I tried reinstalling it did not fixed the issue. I tried putting the system volume to 28, and tried recording but the bug still exists.

Any help is welcomed. I tried looking around the forum, but it seems to all point to the BIOS. My BIOS has been cleared which indicated clearing it again will not fix the problem.

Answer:Volume Mixer keeps resetting.

Does the volume changing ONLY happen with certain programs and/or web sites? Does it happen when you use media players such as the Windows Media Player?

I've run across some programs that will set the volume to what the program wants and when you exit, instead of returning the volume to where it was originally they will either leave it at the program's volume setting or just reset it to zero.

I've seen the same problems with video resolution.

There are several things you can try.-At first, make sure your speakers are turned on and are properly plugged in the motherboard.-Also, go to device manager (Start > Run > devmgmt.msc) and check for yellow exclamation signs and red X`s.-Go to Start --> Run, and type in services.msc.A window will pop up with a list of services. Scroll down to Windows Audio. Right-clickand click on Properties.Make sure that "Startup type" is set to automatic. Also, make sure, under "Servicestatus," start is selected.Post the results here.Google is your friendwww.google.com-----------------------Keyboard not present,press F1 to continue...

Volume Mixer Resets to 0; will not allow any adjustment. This problem started a few days ago after a Windows update. Then the System Restore was run to prior the Win update. Only helped for a few minutes.

Dell Precision M6300 [64 bit]; Win 7 SP1 Pro Ultimate

Have tried the following:
Set Control Panel > Hdw & Sound > Sound > Communications > Do Nothing
Ran System Restore
After System Restore failed, I installed Windows Codec 4.1.0 4.1.0 [didn?t help].

This problem started a few days ago after a Windows update. Then the System Restore was run to prior the Win update. Volume Mixer Resets to 0; will not allow any adjustment.

Often, if not in focus cannot bring some applications back into focus directly [1st need to minimize other applications or close it with Win Task Manager].

Happens when only running Chrome; also with other programs.
Runs OK for a few minutes after restarting Windows

Device Manager reports all Ok; all drivers up to date including High Definition Audio Device.

Answer:Volume Mixer Resets to 0

This is a relatively old laptop, but fortunately Dell does have Vista 64 bit drivers which are also applicable to Windows 7.

First thing, if you only have "High Definition Audio Device" that indicates that it is only the generic, basic function Windows installed driver and not the actual driver for the hardware. Dell lists Sigmatel (now called IDT) as the actual sound driver. Suggest you install the SigmaTel as a first step.

I am running windows 8.1, IE 11.  When I open IE 11, the volume mixer in the lower right corner of taskbar shows the IE 11 sound muted.  So I have to open the volume mixer and unmute each item before hearing anything on IE 11.  Anyone have any suggestions on how to keep the volume mixer from muting the IE 11 browser when it is opened.  Help appreciated.

Answer:Volume mixer in taskbar

While in your Explorer 11, Click on the sound then mixer. It should show you sounds of all the open apps. May have to scroll over to get to the one you need. make sure it is not set to MUTE. If it is uncheck it.. See if that helps James

As I see it right after I used windows media player for the first time, Chrome worked once then Chrome disappeared from the volume mixer so no sound. Then I used ie9 one time it worked and the next time it was also gone from volume mixer.

I think if I could get them back in volume mixer my no sound problem would go away. So can you help me get them back into volume mixer. Sound works for everything else on my computer.

Windows Vista
 

Answer:Browsers not in Volume Mixer

Play something in Chrome or IE 9 and open the volume while it is playing. Check if it is set to mute or too low a volume.
If nothing is playing, there will be no audio outs showing. In other words, only this will appear

Hey, it's me again

Magically, I had no problems with vista until yesterday. I ran an game (.exe), and the sound was surprisingly low. I have In-game sound set to 60%, but it wasnt near as low as it was. I was running Mumble in background (TS/Ventrilo style program) and i could hear people just fine as it should be. Weird indeed, but i wasnt really bothered... Today I ran another game (.exe), and it was too low too. So I checked settings in-game, everything was okay. Then I went to volume mixer and saw it changed the exe. to 6%. Why should it do that, I dont know...

Any clues of what might cause this?

EDIT: Ive had the "Allow applications to take exlusive control of this device" turned on, that was the reason. But hey, there is the solution if anybody else has this problem.

EDIT2: There still is some issues :S

Alright for some reason I can tune my pc's audio just fine by adjusting the global operating system output sound. However, when I go into volume mixer I don't see any green bars for sounds from any program (including on the global sound column) and any attempt to adjust sound for a specific program is completely null and void. All drivers are up to date - just got this computer. Motherboard is Asus Z170 Deluxe, using the onboard sound with Logitech Z623 speakers.

Answer:Strange Volume Mixer Appearance

I'm familiar with this issue. I've seen it myself, but it didn't bother me enough to get me to try and fix it. Do you have an OEM version of Windows (from HP, Dell, Toshiba, etc.)? I think the bloatware might cause it (I have since reinstalled Vista with a clean version, and don't remember seeing it since).

Another something to try is to end the explorer.exe process from task manager and start it over (File -> New Task (Run...) -> type explorer and press enter).

I wasn't sure to post this in the audio forum or the game forum, but since this has only been an issue with some older games I decided to post it here.

I'm having an issue with some games, most recently Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne, where the Volume mixer just dosn't see the game and subsequently I can't raise or lower the games volume. I tried running it as administrator and in compatibility mode for xp sp2 and Windows 200 but the Volume Mixer still doesn't see the game. The only reason this is an issue is because the ingame volume controls are setup to be either off or at the lowest setting, ear shatteringly loud. I also don't like to move the master volume at all because that changes the volumes of everything else that I have running and I'm very picky about different appilcation's volumes.

Any ideas?

Hey guys! I'm having some small problems with Windows Sound Mixer!
It happens when I'm playing Left 4 Dead. Every time that I win a level, the Sound Mixer lowers the volume of the game. If I'm listening to music in WMP or WMC, it pauses the music and lowers its volume too.
One weird thing, is that the volume the application were keeps marked on the Mixer, but faded, and a other volume marker, not faded, goes down! Then, I've to lower the game, raise the volume levels again, then go back.
In WMP, happens almost the same, but there is none faded volume marker, it just lowers the volume, but the marker stays in the same position!
I know, its kinda creepy, when I play again, I'll post a screenshot here for you guys to see.

I got all my Realtek drivers updated to lastest version, and I'm using Windows 7 x86 build 7100.

Any help will be appretiated!

I have an ongoing annoyance, which I've had through all Windows versions from XP or maybe Vista onwards, in that although I can individually set the volume level of each program that makes any sounds, all those volume settings are wiped out and reverted to the much unwanted default level every time the Realtek High Definition Audio driver is updated. So, I'm naturally wanting to backup the settings and then restore them each time they've got reverted to default.

So, could any nice person here tell me where those volume mixer settings are stored? -- Many thanks.

Answer:Location of volume mixer settings...?

Edit: I just found the utility in the link below. I think I may use it myself:
New utility to control the sound volume on Windows Vista/7/8/2008

End of Edit

================================

Perhaps someone knows. In the meantime an angle of attack could be take a snapshot of the Registry. Change the volume settings. Take another snapshot and see what changed.

So as of late probably a month or two? I've had an issue where programs would limit their volume until I close other programs such as a game client and this keeps happening.
 
I turned off the reduction of other sounds when windows detects communications but it still seems to apply even when I join programs such as Discord or Skype where it either makes them the main volume and everything else quiet or makes everyone's voices very quiet until I close programs
 
If anyone can provide any insight on how to fix this I'd be very grateful.

not sure what is going on. After I updated drivers my volume mixer stopped recognising any audio devices I have tested with. Tried the onboard RealTek HD audio driver and the driver reports all is well. Though it bahaves oddly. after much trial and error and uninstall and reinstall and update and downgrade I went with my audigy 2 ZS Gamer. that recognises controlls from the driver. (IE I turn up my microphone sound I get static pumped through the speakers.) but it does not recognise windows sounds. Going to test with a game.

Nope games are a no go.
 

Answer:Vista x64 Volume Mixer busted?

Creative FTL... I have an Audigy 2 as well.

Uninstall your Creative drivers

Go to the device manager -> view -> show hidden devices -> Non plug&play Devices -> uninstall all the Creative 'hidden' devices that were not removed when you uninstalled the drivers.

Reboot as necessary...

Install the latest creative drivers from creative.com

I'm guessing there's a rogue 'device' in your device manager.

This problem started about an hour ago:
 
I've been hearing ads/misc audio at random times. When I check my running processes I see nothing fishy or out of the ordinary. When I go into Volume Mixer to see what is playing this sound, it shows as "Name Not Available".
 
It also seems that my computer has been having a hard time even with one chrome tab open (fan is going nuts) which usually doesnt happen.
 
I experienced a random restart once while all of this has been happening which I'm assuming is related to the issue.

Hello!

On my PC I've got a game called Banished that I muted once from the Volume Mixer, because I wanted to listen non in-game music instead.
So now, when I want to re-enable it - I can't. Why? Because Banished does not show up in the Volume Mixer, meaning I cannot unmute it.

I have tried the fixes described in this post - Applications missing from Volume Mixer to no avail.

This is what it looks like:

So, how would I go about solving this problem? Thanks in advance for your help!

Answer:Volume Mixer not showing muted app

Try this first:
Run the Windows audio troubleshooting wizard:
On the taskbar, press and hold the volume icon.
Note: you can also right-click the volume icon
Select Troubleshoot sound problems, and then follow the instructions.

Also, work through the steps in this Tutorial.
https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/...shooting-tips/

You may need to uninstall the game. There may be a compatibility issue.
Google the game for Windows 10. I have not checked into this.
