WAV volume slider drops down for unknown reason??

built it in 2006, for some reason the WAV volume slider setting drops way
down periodically for some unknown reason.
I running XP Pro SP3, fully patched. The mobo is an ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe
The sound system is Realtek AC97 Audio, which is on the mobo. I often play
video tutorials, and I'll notice that the sound level is way down. Bringing
up the Realtek Volume Control dialog box, I see that all the other 5 sliders
are near the top (max volume) except the WAV slider, which is way down.
Sliding it back up restores things to normal.
But I can't figure out what changes that setting. Various media players do
have a volume slider in them, but I've not seen that mess with the master
volume setting in the WAV volume control.window.
This is obviously not a problem of any consequence. But I always like to
understand what's happening, when strange things happen.
It's been doing this for a long time,
