I recently encountered a problem with my audio when using my headset.
The other night I was playing WOW and using ventrilo to talk to some people that I play with. Both the sound from WOW and ventrilo were going to my headset.
All of a sudden, while i was playing WOW the sound from my headset disappeared and started coming out from my desktop speakers. I couldn't hear anything in my headset. I didn't change any setting or do anything out of the ordinary.
Naturally I just restarted my computer hoping it would fix the problem but it didn't. When I restarted, I could hear the WOW game sounds perfectly through my headset but I couldn't hear anyone on Ventrilo. I had to listen to them through my desktop speakers.
Next thing I did was shut my computer down and unplug all my headset connections to the computer. I replugged everything and started my computer again.
This time around, I could hear everything normally on my headset but my ventrilo/skype sounds were very low and hard to hear someone talking to me.
It's weird because every other thing I listen to on my headset like WOW, music, youtube, etc, the sound is loud and clear but every time I get on ventrilo or skype the audio is so low.
I checked all my audio settings and all my ventrilo/skype settings and made sure everything is connected properly but it didnt fix the problem. I deleted and reinstalled ventrilo/skype but that didnt work either.
Could someone help me with this problem? I mean I can hear them through my headset but the audio is very low and it isn't what it used to be. Everything else I listen to through my headset is loud and clear.
