I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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!)

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.

My Plantronics RIG headset has been working fine since I bought it. However, yesterday when I left my laptop (HP - Pavilion) and returned to use it I couldn't hear any sound coming from the headset. I plugged in my other headset to see if my RIG was broken, but I couldn't hear any audio from this one as well. Since my headset is a RIG, I plugged in my iphone and I could hear my music playing. I feel like my headsets are working but there is an issue else where.

I have already checked the 'sound' options if the wrong device was set as default. I have the proper options set up in the 'Sound' options and everything is plugged in fine. I have tried the other USB ports, but no luck. The speakers on my laptop work fine. While I in 'Device Manager' I could hear the 'Beeping' sound play through my headset. Restarted my laptop, shut it down, updated my HP - Pavilion drivers. The microphone works fine as well.

Also just to point out in my 'Sound' options that the 'AMD High Definition Audio Device' is NOT PLUGGED IN.

Thank you very much in advance for any help, P4nnywise.
Also, sorry if this thread is in the wrong section.

I have my xbox 360 connected to my HD monitor, and the audio comes through my computer's line in port. I have it output to my sound system, but I'd like to have the option to have it come out of my USB headset if I wanted. Sometimes my girlfriend's watching TV and I want to play xbox and my only options are don't play, or play with no sound, which is really hard to do.

Is there a way to use Vista's What U Hear to throughput that sound to the headset? I've tried setting the input to Line-in and the output to the headset, but it still comes through the speaker port, and I can't figure out why. The computer's sounds come through the headset, but the xbox comes through the line out. If I unplug the headset, the sound for both the computer and the xbox come through the line out port at the same time.

A:I can't hear sound from my laptop unless i use a headset...

 I have the same problem on my Toshiba Satellite L755 laptop.  Headphones and external speakers work fine, but the internal speakers work for roughly 30 seconds & quit.  To diagnose the problem I booted from a Ubuntu DVD and tried it; got the same results.  That means it's a hardware problem.  So at first I bought cheap external speakers which circumvented the problem, but my wife didn't like the extra wires (women!), so I got a $35 Bluetooth speaker which sounds better and doesn't require any wires to the laptop. 
 
Good luck.

Logitech Premium USB Headset 300

I recently today stopped hearing sound coming out of the headphones and I looked under sound and audio devices and nothing is muted. I set in Teamspeak to have the sound come of out the headset. I think the volume is up high enough.
 

A:Can't hear sound out of Headphones on Headset

Personally you could trouble shoot this issue, but sound problems seem to take forever.
Personally I would save myself that pain and just un-install the drivers and software for the headset shut down reboot and then install it from scratch again. Should take all of 5 to 10 min and then if it still does not work, at least you know you are in for a ride trying to find out what is messed up, weather it be physical or software.
Good luck!! :grinthumb

My microphone is a "Cyber Acoustics" headset and it uses the light pink / light green jack inputs which I think is called "1/8" or "3.5mm" not sure? Here's a low resolution photo:



I tried using the "Sound Hardware Test Wizard".



But the quality on that isn't so great. So then I tried using Skype but that doesn't allow me to hear at the same time it only has playback and I want to hear myself as I speak.

So is there any simple free programs I can use to do this?

A:[SOLVED] How Do I Hear Myself Speak On My Headset

As far as I know, the headphones on a headset are intended for hearing other people speak to you, not for you to hear your own voice. There's no software I know of that can change that.

Test the Windows Sound Recorder on your PC:

1. Click Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment and choose Sound recorder
2. Click record button and speak to see whether the green line moves to indicate the application picks the sound.
3. Click on Stop button and Play to check the sound. Make sure the device is selected
4. Click Edit Then Audio Properties and make sure Logitech Device is listed as preferred device for Sound Recording

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).

This issue has been happening for some months now, though it dissapeared for about a week before randomly coming back.
Whenever my friends on teamspeak speak at all, they can hear themselves through my outbound, like an echo. This issue also occurs on other programs, like ventrilo or Skype. I've tried using different headsets, plugging the audio and mic into different jacks, and fiddling with their settings, but nothing seems to work. Any ideas about a solution?

A:Friends hear an echo when talking on teamspeak, I'm using a headset.

I get this problem when I plug in speakers. There can be several reasons:
1) You've a slow internet connection which gives you high latency.
2) You are not using push to talk.
3) You plugged in speakers (which you haven't)

So I would recommend you use push-to-talk feature in teamspeak. Go to options>capture and set a push-to-talk key.

Hope this solves the problem

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 googled and read a dozen things which don't work - I can find no trace of the various settings other people seem to be talking about. Most of the solutions seem to apply to a line in mike but I am using a logiteck usb mike. I am running win7 64 bit.

A:Hear voice thru my speakers to test usb microphone

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).

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!

A:People can hear what I hear, but not my voice.

We'd love to help. So help us too.
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?
Try this, go to Control Panel/Sound Highlight Microphone, click the Configure button. Go thru the steps to Setup your Microphone.

I am running windows 7 and it has Realtek HD Audio Manager. I have speakers plugged into 3.5mm jack in rear of computer and my Razer headset plugged into my 3.5mm front panel. When I am in any sort of voice chat such as skype, google chat or an in game (computer game) chat, everyone in the call can hear everything I can hear, as clear as they can hear me. It?s not my mic picking up sounds.. I can unplug my speakers and mute/unplug the mic cord and they can still hear all my sounds. I can unplug my headset and speakers completely so I have no mic or spearkers or audio equipment hooked up at all and they can STILL hear my everything. youtube, games, ect. I have read other forums that say to "disable "stereo mix" or "what u hear"" but that option is not on my computer. Any help would be AMAZING. Thanks

A:Everyone in any voice chat can hear everything I hear. PLEASE HELP

moehamster Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Open the Windows playback properties and select Speakers. Next click on Properties and click on the Levels tab, and if present and unchecked, mute the mic.

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
Izgol

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.
