December 31, 2006



I just noticied this myself. Mic setup was working fine with Y!Messenger before the Vista installation. Afterwards, the mic level is so low that I can't be heard in voice conversations without yelling into the microphone. What gives Microsoft?


Same problem, driving me nuts, installed new vista realtek ac97 audio drivers...but same problem!! grrrr! Hopefulyl someone will come up witht he fix soon I cant use my mic in game for bf2 :-(

Why wont the line in work??


same problem here. Can't hear the mic through the speakers. and no way for unmuting the mic. Any solution !?


Hey I found it! After about half an hour of desperate button pushing and knob tweaking, I managed to hear my microphone through my speakers. Here's how to do it: Right-click on the sound icon in the system tray and select Playback Devices (or alternatively, go to Control Panel and select Sounds). Once in the Sounds window, double-click the Speakers options, then go to the Levels tab, and there you'll find the available options. Why oh why did they make it so complicated?


Thanks, I've been looking for this for ages. I don't think it's over complicated, just takes some lateral thinking. The option is in speaker levels because you want to either turn on or off the mic sound coming from the speakers, not nessecarily the mic itself :D
