G35 Headset causing PC issues

Q: G35 Headset causing PC issues

Everytime I plug in my G35 headset(usb), any platform of audio/media stops working and will freeze. Any online videos will not play and when I access audio files media player just freezes. I have re installed the drivers before and it didn't seem to help. This only started happening recently and I've been using the headset for 1-2 years now.

Plus no sound comes from the headset but after I plug it out my speakers don't have sound either and I have to restart pc to fix it.

Preferred Solution: G35 Headset causing PC issues

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

This is a problem that has been driving me up the wall lately with my headset. A few months back I bought a headset called Plantatronics Gamecom 780. I put up with the issues for awhile since I was in school and had no real problem with restarting the computer to get rid of the issues. But it always comes back and I can't seem to get rid of it.

LatencyMon seems to show that the driver that is causing this is PLTGC.sys which is the driver that comes with my headset, uninstalling the driver has no effect on it. I have no other visible ports to plug the headset into on the computer (2.0 USB Port in the front is busted), so I only have the ones that come with the motherboard in the back.

Picture of LatencyMon: http://puu.sh/aL01r/8ce3878457.png

I hope someone can help me with this.

A:Headset Drivers are causing latency issues, PLTGC.sys

I have a recording studio.

What type of latency problem are you having? If it is a latency problem. In recording, PC sound cards have poor latency and are considered poor for recording.

Have you run the DPC Latency Checker? The Resplendence Latency Monitor tends to go overboard some times.

Hey all,

It's my first post here, so I'll try to be as helpful in my explanations as possible.

Basically I'm running Windows 10 64-bit (free download version) and am trying to use my HTC ONE (m7) with Trinus VR. For the least latency I'm trying to use it through USB tethering. The problem is that my computer keeps dropping and reconnecting to the phone. Plus, even though the phone's USB tethering is on, I'm not getting a 'tethering' connection (only able to explore the file structure).

Now, as far I can tell, according to a google search, most of the problem comes down to the Microsoft USB drivers(? need confirmation on this). I've changed my power options and disabled the "USB selective suspend setting", I've also uninstalled and reinstalled the HTC Sync and HTC SyncManager software AND uninstalled all of the USB devices in the Device Manager.

It will still, on occasion, go through a cycling disconnect and reconnect pattern.

Do you ladies and gentleman have any more ideas that I can try?

Many thanks for reading this far, I appreciate ANY help or advice that you can give. THANKS!

I loaded up some Team Fortress 2 on my new build and noticed the sound cuts out after a few seconds of consecutive audio. This happens on all programs now but I've also noticed that when the raw audio (not me turning up and down the volume) is fine when it's loud and when it gets a small bit quiet it cuts out completely. Is this an issue I can resolve in setting or is there something wrong with my headset? By the way, the sound is fine without the headset on the speakers.

Ok well I am not exactly sure where to post this but since it works well on XP and not Vista I will post it here.

So I went out and bought a headset. Now I have had a couple, but this one is USB so I figured it'll work well. Now then, I use it on XP and I can hear it just fine, everyone else can hear it too. I try it on Vista and it's extremely quiet. I am using Ventrilo to talk to people incase that is needed to be known. So basically I ask, how do I make it more sensative to sound?

I have recently got a new computer ( Packard bell ixtreme M5801). It has no sound card. On my previous computer I tried the headset with no problems however on this one, when the microphone jack is plugged in, the sound is muffled, quiet and distorted. I have tried playing around with the settings on the "Sound" panel and installing the latest drivers from packard bells website. The headset i am trying to use is a Turtle Beach x11.

Today, I plugged my iPod into the microphone port via a 3.5mm cable and when playing it back it was fine.

Hello everyone. I was was given a headset by a good friend of mine since mine had recently broke. He assured me that the headset was fine since he had used it the previous night and both audio and recording worked fine. When I had arrived home and tested it I found that only audio was working but my computer wasn't tracking the detecting sound going into the mic we currently have two different operating systems I'm currently on Windows 7 Ultimate whilst he's currently on Windows Vista Home premium. The mic he had given me is a none USB mic, the link to the mic can be found at: Philips - Webcam Share - SPC1035NC/00 - Webcams with headsets - Webcams and headsets - PC products and phones .

Hi I recently bought a headset for my PC and I'm trying to set up chat functions on a website called discord, as far as I'm aware the app works fine and I should be part of the chat, after unmuting myself. Audio works fine on the headset and has done for
a while but when I plugged in the mic it didn't seem to work, after some fiddling in manage devices I can hear myself being played back, an echo of me talking and typing etc, but I still can't be heard by other people on the chat?

For the past two days, I've been struggling to record commentary for a YouTube video I am making. My Headset works everywhere else just fine, but if I plug it in into my laptop it creates static and so does every other mic. I called HP, and they said there was nothing wrong with the jack since I could hear everything just fine. Sometimes the static is in the files themselves but other times it's just through my headsets. I have no clue what to do. I've looked at every single tutorial thing and tinkered with every little thing. The problem was solved yesterday then I tried to record today and RIP.
I checked, and it says all my drivers are updated.
The headset came with a cable that splits the audio, and I'm thinking of splitting it then splitting it back into the laptop. I really have no clue what else to do.

Thank you in advance.

I am pretty sure there are as many recording issues as there are people with microphones, and I've been searching all day for a solutions to my issues to no avail. Either the people with the microphone issues have something different going on or the thread simply ends with no solution.

So I decided to ask my own questions to you guys. Here goes.

Bought a new headset about three months ago due to a similar problem, and assuming it was an issue with a cheap headset I bought a slightly better built one.

For no reason, my microphone will not work. With the pink plug in all I get is static, with the USB attachment only silence. If I fiddle with the mic boost, the green sound bar (that indicates sound being picked up) will move to match the level of boost (boost = half way, the green bar sits at halfway).

The headphones work find with both the plug and the USB attachment, and the microphone will work in my laptop, just not my PC.

I have Win Vista 64, Realtek HD, and Logitech G330 headset. If you need any more info just ask, I'd love ANY help!

Evening lads,

I've recently purchased a 'Plantronics Skype-ready Audio 45 USB Stereo PC Headset' - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0002ZDS4S/202-1788481-0147842?v=glance&n=560798

The headphones work when plugged into the headphone socket on the back of my tower, or when plugged into the headphone socket in my Creative volume control (which comes with some of their more recent audio systems), though the headset came bundled with a USB device which you can plug both headset and mic into, though when I do this sound continues playing on my speakers as opposed to the headphones, despite the fact that I've enabled my computer to automatically detect headphones and switch to them as an audio output. Might this just be down to a dodgy USB socket or device? There was no bundled software with the headset so I imagine that it's not to do with drivers etc.

However, I can cope with this - as I said all I have to do is plug it into the volume control, so no problem (though it would be nice to know why it's not working around the back with the USB if anyone has any clues).

The mic, however, works neither when attached to the USB device, nor when plugged in to the volume control. It does work when plugged in to the microphone socket in the back of the tower, so it's not a problem with the mic per se. I've fiddled around changing various input options, none of which allow it to work with anything except the rear socket. It's a... Read more

Here's the problem I've been having recently;

I use my Headset to talk on Ventrilo. I'm using an HP Desktop PC with Front & Rear Audio connectors. I myself am not getting feedback but, whenever I record with my mic it picks up not only my voice, but any sound my computer makes. By that I mean like, here's the best example of the problem I'm having. If I record my voice while someone else is talking on vent, they can hear themselves REALLY loud. I know it's not an issue with speaker volume (because im not using speakers) and ive tested recording sound with my PC volume all the way down, but when i record, then turn the volume back up and listen, I can still hear the sounds off of my computer. Like its recording the computer sound too.

I've had the same problem with 2 wireless gaming headsets. The corsair void pro wireless and now the Logitech G533 Wireless. Basically the mic sounds terrible and I know the problem... I just can't fix it. When I am using the headset using it's wireless USB adapter, it defaults the Default Format to 8000 HZ (telephone quality).

The problem is when I try to change this to higher quality format as seen in the next shot:

It throws this prompt and when i select YES it closes the windows and doesn't save the changes. I have closed all applications using audio and still get the problem... Anyone have any ideas? It's been very frustrating!

Today the headset i've been waiting for arrived. My Steelseries 5h v2 (W/O usb driver).
My old Headset died so i ordered this one..
My problem is that the microphone is EXTREMELY quiet. On my laptop it works just fine with no problem at all. But on my PC its quiet and i cant even get into the Microphone boost menu.
My mate on skype can't hear me talking either, i have to shout in it.
So i wondered if my drivers were the cause of this problem. So i updated them and nothing changed.
I think my soundcard is called VIA P4M890 im not that into Computers so i dont know if this is right. The driver i downloaded had some software called High Definition Audio Deck to manage my soundsettings but these doesnt seem to do anything (When i try to boost my microphone).

My earlier headset was a USB and this new one is with JACK plugs does that make a difference.

I Apologies for my bad English, and i hope someone can help me with my problem.

I have a headset and two computers. Old PC, Acer. Current PC, Cyberpower. Headset, Humlin.
A few days or so ago I plugged my headset into my current PC and it recorded fine and clear. However, the sound suddenly came out the speakers at full volume and it said the headphones jack had been unplugged. It hadn't and it was still in. I twisted it a little and it said plugged back in. I started recording again but had issues with both mic and headphones with the computer telling me they'd been unplugged and plugged back in, but the jacks never moved. Each time the speakers went to full volume. It was fine for a bit and then when I unplugged the jack the speakers went to full volume again.
I plugged the headset into my old computer the other day and it all seemed fine. Did it again a day or two later and it wouldn't record but I had sound. It also took my volume up to full when unplugging the headphones jack, but it's been the one and only time it has done that. Then the next day I could record but had no sound.
I was using the front ports so switched to the back ports and both mic and headphones seemed fine. I recorded what I wanted to today (after double checking mic and headphones, both seemed fine) and then went to listen to the audio on my laptop and there's a really loud constant buzz.
I've plugged my headset back into my current PC and there's no buzz when playing back the recording, but it did say unplugged jack (headphones) and turned... Read more

Hi, i was wondering if anyone could help.

I recently installed Windows 7 (build 7100), and now am unable to get the mic to work on my headset (Creative Fatal1ty).

I've changed it to the default, but it's just not picking up any sound. Tried it with skype, ventrilo and the speech recognition software and nothing. I've also checked everything is connected correctly and have pretty much run out of ideas.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I just purchased a Fatal1ty Gaming Headset (jacks, not USB) from newegg.com and for some reason i cant get the mic to work. I've browsed these forums for a few hours now looking for an answer but I cant seem to find anything that works for me. I've feel like I've tried everything. The computer only recognizes the mic build into my computer, which is just picking up white noise from my fan (hence the mic)

My computer is a Macbook Pro 17" (Bootcamped Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit)

Attached is an image of the recording devices pane.

The Stereo Mix should be set as the default recording device (then whatever is plugged in you should hear). When you plug in the headset, does it show the microphone as connected? (or whatever yours states for an active device).

You can click on a device and get another panel which has a volume control for the device.

I bought a Plantronics Backbeat 903 stereo headset with a store brand 100m bluetooth dongle a couple of days ago so I can listen to my computer wirelessly and not disturb my neighbors. The sound is crystal clear, it's light weight and barely noticeable I'm wearing it. So I'm fairly happy so far. There are a couple of drawbacks like the signal fails at times. For instance if I change rooms. The manual for the headset does mention this but I am wondering if another dongle could improve the signal at all.

I don't have a microwave oven (I don't like them), nor a cordless phone. I turned off my mobile as it is connected to my pc with BT. I disconnected my wifi modem. I'm not even sure if Bluetooth has the same interference issues that occurs with wifi. None of that seemed to improve or impair performance anyway.

Does anyone have any ideas as I am just short of being completely, impressively satisfied with it.

The other issues are reconnecting as sometimes I need to turn off and disconnect the dongle to get it working again. But I attribute that to not knowing how to use it properly. I press buttons randomly hoping one will reconnect and I'm pleasantly suprised when it works. It has trouble with speech recognition too but that's another story.

Also (sorry for the length) when I go to Device and Printers it doesn't show up. I'm curious why not.

Hello BIGGD,
Have you configured the mic in the control panel ?.
Go to control panel and open Sound, there you will see a panel that looks like this, highlight the mic you are using and configure.

Also if you are using the mic in a game, you may need to configure the mic in the game sound options, make sure you dont need to press a key to transmit.
Hope some of this helps, Good luck and post your results.

So I bought a creative fatality HS 800 microphone.

1) I hear sound from my fatality headset just fine but my microphone is not picked up when it's attached to my headset.
2) I can use the internal microphone or the microphone from my old headset just fine.
3) I can use the detachable microphone just fine (meaning if i detach it from the headset I can use it .. and from sound quality I'm quite certain it's not using my internal laptop mic.
4) The microphone does not work when it's connected to my headset however on this computer. There is no sound pickup at all (the bars do not go up on the recording devices tab)
5) The fatality headset mic does work on my friend's computer of which he has a standalone sound card even if it's connected .

I am on a laptop with a realtek integrated sound card (most likely integrated.. not sure... someone wanna give me quick confirmation test?) and the microphone will not work when it's connected to the headset and yes I am sure the "mic on" switch is on from the headset. I am on windows 7 premium 64-bit. Any ideas?

I bought a skype Everyman USB Headset and it was sent by Instore, both of them are shockingly horrendous for support, in fact i asked for a full refund and return delivery of product the product a week ago and I'm still awaiting feedback.

Basically when i plug it into my usb port, it plays for upto 30 seconds and begins to click, no other volume can be heard apart from this clicking noise, after a minute the headset disconnects altogether.

I have spent since start of January trying to mend this issue and have finally narrowed it down to a composite audio driver within vista called - Port_#0002.Hub_#0005

If i disable that driver, then the headset does not work at all which in one sense is great because it means i found the controlling audio driver for the headset.

I have Googled and Googled and cannot find an answer how to fix this.

Here is the community support request at Skype that i started, after being pushed off by Instore, i only provide this link for further information.

Tried using headset with XP laptop which worked fine with no issues at all
Smashing it against the wall repeatedly before using my head (kidding) lol

Hi - I've read various posts about problems with Headsets but not yet found a solution!  I have purchased a new headset together with splitter to use the single 3.5mm jack port for both audio and recording.  I can get the audio to work and the headset shows in my "Playback" however my laptop will ONLY use the built in mic and will not detect the headset in "Recording".  Obviously this is not good for VOIP calls and I need to get the mic on my headset working by tomorrow morning!  I've done all the basics - resinstalled sound card, checked all devices are showing and disabled devices not in use.  I've also checked the microphone privacy settings and in Realtek Audio I can't see a headset in the microphone options there!  Can anyone help at all?  Thanks so much

Hello, Dell Community. I've recently bought a headset with a mic. I also have a headset splitter because theres only one audio jack and there was two cables one for mic and one for audio. Now when I plug it in a pop up comes up asking me the following. Is the device you just plugged into the jack Headphones, Headset, Skullcandy headset, etc. I select headset now the purpose that I bought this headset was recording with the mic in the headset so now I go to record and my dell laptop doesn't pick up the mic and it doesn't play audio. So I go to recording devices and I right click and press show disabled devices and disconnected devices and my headset doesnt show up on the list! So I go through and uninstall and install the drives which also doesn't work I've tried only using the mic plugin. and It doesn't detect it I need help! If anyone can help me out I would appreciate it I'm using a Dell Insprion 3521 Laptop Running Windows 10 64 bit.

Hi all,

I am running an Asus M5A97EVO board on Windows 7 64bit. I run a Logitech G35 headset. So, I left out of province for work last year and was away for 8 months, once I returned I had a Hard drive failure and had to re-install windows on a new harddrive.

I cant recall exactly but I think the following issues came up after the install, they were definantly not there before I went away for work.

I play a PC racing game that uses audio
I use Teamspeak
I listen to Windows Media
I watch YouTube

I used to be able to do all 4 of these at once if I choose to. Now, If I have teamspeak open its hard to get my racing game going, sometimes I have to shutdown teamspeak, then get the game going then try teamspeak again. I cant listen to windows media and youtube videos wont load when I have my game and teamspeak running. If I close them, everything else works normally.

Its like I can only use 1 - 2 audio items at once, its really weird and I am at a loss as to what might be causing this.

Hopefully I have included enough information, anything else let me know and ill get it for you.

I have recently installed a solid state hard drive into my laptop and since doing so I have experienced numerous system crashes. When this happens an error screen appears, but there is not enough time to read the content before it restarts and boot options kick in (ie safe mode etc). The crash seemed to occur when I was browsing the net and has become more frequent and now has crashed minutes after start up. It seemed to be prompted by any simple action like closing dialogue boxes, whereas initially it occurred only infrequently. I am confident that the root cause has to do with the Kingston SSD as my old hard drive works ok (so far). Please help

Here's the event logs etc from windows.

Kernel 41 1 - Pastebin.com

Detailed - Pastebin.com

one more - Pastebin.com





When I first installed the HDD and Windows, I ran the Windows experience thing and it rated the HDD at 7.8 out of 7.9 which made me think I had no reason to mess around with settings etc.

Once I noticed these issues I did some research and saw that I should have updated the SSD's firmware which I attempted to do and think I did successfully but it had no effect.

Hope you can help me.

Recently I discovered a program file in my system32 folder called wikii.exe.

I tried to do a search for that file, but no luck.

Anyway, I changed the exe to txt to look at it, and I know that it is definitely not a file that should be there, however, when I try to delete it, it reappears in seconds again. Now I checked to make sure there was not a duplicate in the dllcache folder, so I don't know if there is another dependant file in the folders somewhere.

Also, I looked through the registry and tried to look for references to wikii.exe and came up with one and here is the screenshot of the location and reference

And here is the link to the wikii.txt if anyone can look at it and determine what it does?

I started a thread in Windows 7 because my computer was locking up. I would come to the computer and the screen would be black, the hard drive spinning fast and I am unable to wake the computer. I am forced to hold in the power button until it shuts off and restarts. I went through a myriad of steps with a great helper on here and took the computer to the computer repair to get looked at. They went through and updated driver, bios and repaired the registry. Came home and same problem. I have an old Belkin USB Hub connected, it was powered but had nothing hooked to it. They said to take that hub off the system completely and try it. I am doing that now. Can the USB hub go bad? I don't know if I spilled something on it or if it is just old and not working properly. My overall questions is this, can a hub go bad and cause issues such as this, that lock up the system? The only other option may be a new video card but I don't think I am having any video-related issues because the computer works well and looks great on the screen when in use.
