Mic problem

Hiya!

I have a normal desktop mic, nothing special. Not sure what happened but now it seems as long as I dont have it muted in my volume control it picks up everything and put it on the speakers, like it is always on even though I am not holding any push to talk. This happens even when I have no voice programs running.

No idea why this is, it has to be something selected because broken mic would not do that right?

Thanks for any help.

Mine is "muted" in the volume control. I've always had it set like that as far as I can remember (3 years or so) and voice chat still works fine. The "mute" just prevents it from playing back in your own speakers, but it still works otherwise.

Hmm, maybe that is the case. I just started using it again after a long time so might have fiddled with too many settings. Thanks, I'll try that.

Thanks Vega that seemed to have fixed it (actually it was never broken I was just doing it wrong! )
