Mic doesn't work in TF2

  1. when i run TF2, and i try to talk in game, it does not work

    when i go to options and test my mic, it can not read any sound apparently

    aside from that, my mic doesn't work in vent either, so no one can hear me

    when i minimize or close the game, then my mic starts working in ventrilo

    also, i have tested other games such as warcraft 3, wow, cs and my mic worked fine in game and on vent

    so i was wondering what is wrong with this, cause it seems its only me having this problem

    See if updating the sound card driver helps.

    Are you running Vista by chance?

    There can also be an issue with Sound/Mic properties where you need to Not Allow Exclusive Use of the mic. If allowed, one app can lock out other apps
