i have a powerbook 17" 1.5ghz running os x 10.4.8. just recently at startup my volume is on max, even though i shut it down with the volume completely off. after resetting pmu the startup chime is muted, but the volume display is still on max loudness. this just started happening this past week.

i've run the fsck -fy and everything is okay. i can't remember installing any new apps or changing anything before this happened.

any ideas on how to resolve this issue and have the volume at startup be where i set it at shutdown? thanks so much!

StartupSound.prefPane
StartupSound.prefPane is the software which controls the volume of the startup sound of your Macintosh computer. StartupSound.prefPane mute the startup sound without changing the output volume setting. And StartupSound.prefPane limits the startup volume so that it may not become loud even if you make the output volume louder. To set up the startup volume, you select the "Startup Sound" pane added to the "System Preferences."
