    you've probably got something plugged into the wrong spot. try using known good headphones instead of speakers, and take a detailed look of your sound settings in wondows (and anything else you use to manage your soundcard).

    well i checked and it was pluuged into the microphone jack, all the settings were fine, they havent changed scince i first got the headset.

    i went and bought a new headset anyways and it was just the mic from the last one that was messed up, odd because it was a logitech mic
