Hi, my computer recently started displaying the message that I should consider replacing my battery. This is most probably true as I have, to my shame, overcharged my laptop quite a lot.

However, since this message appeared, my computer has been continuously automatically lowering the maximum limit for volume in iTunes (but only iTunes, not the overall system volume). Whilst I can change this in the mixer manually, it's becoming quite annoying. Any idea how to resolve this, or if it is even linked to the battery replacement message?

Yes, it happens with or without the charger, and even after I've manually changed the volume back it will revert to quiet again when I perform actions like plug in my iPod to charge.

I've also noticed it happens when I open other applications that require audio not produced by the computer itself (for instance, the 'Plugin Container for Firefox" that controls the volume for Youtube videos).

Hey, it seems this was actually a problem of my computer thinking it was connecting to my phone for a call and automatically quieting itself, so problem solved, it seems!

Thanks anyway, Smit :)
