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.)

First of all, duplicate-posting is bad, don't do it

On to the problem - have you tried installing the latest drivers for your audio device? You may also want to check the default recording device in Sounds & Audio properties from the Control Panel.

Hello,

Whenever I open my microphone, people are saying that they can hear everything I hear.
So if I listen to music, they also hear the music.
If I play pc shooters, they hear the shots and everything. and it is very loud!
I tried basically everything...Googled for hours...disabled everything I could..nothing helped

hopefully someone here can help me.

Thanks!

(Pre-note: updated, problem fixed)

Well, I'm not going to lie, I registered to help troubleshoot this

I just picked up a new headset (it's irrelevant, but for bragging rights, Sennheiser PC350 ), and Windows and microphones have ALWAYS given me problems. I've got it now to where Windows picks up the mic and it works, but people can hear what I'm listening to. I.e., if I play some music, whoever I'm talking to in skype can hear the music; MSN messages, themselves talking, etc etc.

I'm using an nForce 680i SLI, with Realtek HD (5.00.10) drivers. These are my current windows settings (I haven't installed Photoshop yet, so MS Paint it is =():

audio1.jpg - http://i38.tinypic.com/2hegbvn.jpg
audio2.jpg - http://i35.tinypic.com/257fukg.jpg

The way I fixed the mic before was I set it up how I knew it was supposed to work, rebooted, and Windows picked up my mic. I'm thinking I have to set it correctly again (so this sound echo/reverb goes away) and do a reboot.

Does anyone have any idea?

**edit**

I found out what the problem was. (MSPaint again yay!)

Hi guys

I have this problem, for quite some time now and i can't for the life of me...fix it.

When ever i'm talking to people on any kinda of voice chat application, like Skype for example they can hear what i hear clearly, and sometimes even better than me. It's not only annoying for them...but annoying for me as well when i have to listen to them complaining about it.

I read that some onboard soundcards have those problems, and they can't be fixed. Don't tell me this is true. I've tried almost everything my intelligence possibly allows me to, please assist a tired old man in his seemingly futile atempt to save his soundcard from replacement.

Thank you

A:Realtek (people hear what i hear)

Hello Izgol. Welcome to TSG,

You could try muting Stereo Mix in your sound settings.

For XP:

Click on Start > Control Panel > Sounds & Audio Devices.

Choose the Audio tab then click on Volume under Sound Recording.

Click on Options, put a check next to Stereo Mix and click OK.

Under Stereo Mix click on Mute.

Hopefully this sorts out your issue.

Hi there, I have a problem that has driven me over the edge time and time again in ages past. I have a microphone headset, and when I try to speak, it doesn't pick up my voice at all. However, when I listen to music or a video, my friends can hear that in full through my headset. I have never been able to find any solution for this online. The issue just seems to come and go whenever it feels like it. Please help!

What is the make and model# of the headset?
Does the Headset use a USB Connection or does it use mini Pink and Green TRS plugs?
Did you try going to the manufacturers Support/Download drivers site and download the latest Driver?
Do you have an Audio Control Panel in your Taskbar by the clock and the speaker icon? Have you gone to the Audio Control Panel and Configured the Mic and adjusted the Volume?

Hello,

First let me preface this by thanking anybody that either reads my post or attempts to respond to it.

I am a gamer, and I play WoW. I use vent to talk to friends while i'm playing the game. I haven't really had any trouble with microphone or sound settings before until I got my new gateway pc from best buy with windows vista on it.

Ever since then I couldn't use my microphone on it. I have tried to improvise by checking the vista support forums for tips/tricks on fixing the general microphone settings but nothing has really helped me so far. The sound on my computer is fine. I can listen to music and hear others talking while i'm connected to ventrilo. Each time I connect to ventrilo I get this error :

Unable to activate DirectSound for selected device.
DirectSoundCaptureCreate failed, hr = 88780078

When I go to Control Panel > Sound > Recording

it shows that my microphone is unplugged. I don't understand how its unplugged when its plugged into the regular pink jack that its always been plugged into.

on the vista forums i tried to follow a suggestion of plugging my mic jack into the blue line in jack instead of the pink one I normally plug it into. I followed step by step to make sure that the microphone wasn't muted and it still isn't working.

Is there anyone that can help me fix this problem? I would really appreciate it. I hope that I was specific enough also.

A:Microphone not working, able to hear all sound but not be heard.

Are you using onboard audio or a stand-alone audio card? (sound blaster x-fi for instance)

I have done some playing around with this myself.. I personally have no issues with talking to people on vent but on TS I am unable to boost my outbound enough as to get people to actually be able to hear me.

If you are using a stand-alone card you will want to make sure your microphone is plugged into the pink microphone jack for the audio card, not the motherboard.
(if your audio card is an X-Fi xtreme gamer like mine the micrphone jack is also the SPDIF I/O jack and is white, not pink)

Also check if your onboard audio device has been DISABLED in device manager.

Then right click on your audio icon, open recording devices.
'disable' all devices listed there except for your microphone.
'enable' your microphone (if it wasnt already) and make sure it is 'set as default device'
select your microphone and open 'properties'
IF you have this tab, open 'custom' and enable the boost
go to 'levels' and put the slider on max, also enable boost IF it is listed here
go to 'advanced' and DISABLE 'allow applications to take exclusive control'
APLLY and exit and try it now =)

You might want to try to disable 'use direct sound' in your vent settings and/or play around with those settings a bit.
I have personally found that if I use direct sound in vent after a few minutes my audio 'DIES'. for some reason all inbound/outbound seizes to work.. so unfortunatelly I have to use vent with direct sound d... Read more

Hey !

I would like start off by saying that I know that there are a lot threads about this problem already, but I googled for hours without any success. I tried everything I came across but nothing worked. I have tried the following:
1. Turning "Stereo Mix" off
2. Turning off the built-in microphone "play-back" in the Realtek HD-audio configuration
3. Tried configuring Skype's embedded audio settings
But nothing has worked so far. I only use 2 devices (one for the mic, and one for sound) and it is only those that are active, the rest are disabled.
I have enabled both "Reduction of Noise" and "Acoustic echo off" in the sound card's control panel.
What more is there to try?

I have the onboard sound card on the "MS-7360" mobo.

Thanks in advance!

However, they can only hear loud sounds.
So for example, if I'm listening to 50% volume on the VLC player, they can hear anything.
If I get it to 100%, they can hear it, but not as clearly as I.
Is this the microphones fault? Because this randomly started happening.

What you are experiencing could be feedback. Try lowering the volume on your speakers and see if that helps, and if you have a slider in your mixer settings under playback called Mic, turn it off (not the one under recording).

Well, you can do 2 things actually, both quite simple:
Most easiest, is to open Sound Recorder, record what you speak, then listen it back.
The second one, go to Volume Control, Recording Devices, here select your mic, and at the "Listen" tab you'll find a box with a text near it "Listen to this device", check it, apply then close, you should hear yourself back after this in the speakers and/or the connected output device(s).

I recently just bought a dx11 turtle beach ear force headset to replace my old one. I got it in the mail today and I can hear sound perfectly and when I talk into my mic I can hear myself. However windows 7 isn't picking up me talking, no one in skype, vent, games can gear me at all. It uses USB to power itself and then audio/microphone jacks, I thought that maybe since I was using the jacks from my motherboard it wasn't working. I went and bought a RocketFish 5.1/7.1 sound card and plugged my mic in and it still doesn't work.

here is a picture of Rcoketfish entertainment console settings and my sound/recording settings for Windows 7

A:I can hear sound but mic isn't working

I would also like to note that the mic is working on my xbox 360 and on my netbook, it only doesn't work on my main computer. I also just freshly installed windows 7 64bit again and it still is not working.

When you defrag your computer you can hear the hard drive running as it changes files back and forth. At times I can hear the same sound (or similar) but have no clue what it can possibly be doing. My 1st instinct is to unplug my internet connection should someone be hacking in my PC and using my resources. But after doing so I can still hear it working hard, on and on, and on at times. So I do a Ctrl+Alt+Del to see what is using most of my memory. Often its Firefox and Skype but even after closing both and doing nothing (hand away from keyboard and mouse) I can still hear it at work. I do not have any automatic updates for any of my software so it can't be that. I was wonderig if there is some way, software perhaps, to find out exactly what it is that is making my computer do such a thing?

A:What is my computer (hard drive) doing now?- I can hear it working

Hi there,

Some info. here on how to distinguish the type of hard drive noise you are hearing. Here's an Article on how to troubleshoot noisy hard drive.

Hope that this is helpful.

 The internal microphone on my Elitebook x360 doesn't work, it won't record.  I?ve had it a couple of months but only got the chance to start using it in the last two weeks.  It seems that there have been others with similar issues, so instead of start with the basics, here's what I?ve tried so far. In the 'Sound > Recording' tab (right click speaker in task bar) the internal microphone (Conextant ISST) is enabled and default (always was).  The green bars do not light up if talking into the microphone, but one or two bars will appear when I tap on the display. Internal microphone properties > Levels: microphone array 100%, microphone boost +36dB (max). I have tried other levels also.  The microphone does not mute by itself, as I read that others have experienced. Internal microphone properties > Advanced: have tried using lower default formats, exclusive mode: on and off, signal enhancements: on and off. In device manager, audio inputs and outputs: I have updated and then uninstalled and reinstalled the Internal microphone (Conextant ISST Audio) driver. In device manager, sound, video and game controllers: I have uninstalled, downloaded and installed new drivers for Conextant ISST Audio and Intel(R) Display Audio. The mic mute button on the keyboard (F8) is not on. In command prompt, as administrator, I have killed the svchost task in the name of the computer and then run Malwarebytes - did not fix anyth...
