  1. Hey guys, I need help on this situation. My headset is a Razer barracuda hp-1, Which has a mic on it. Well Recently I had to reinstall windows, But I had my mic working fine before but I forgot what I did...And btw, I'm using a Realtek Hd

    This is the problem, When I try to record with my mic, It records the sounds from Youtube, Or Ventrillo, But it doesn't record my voice. Like If i play music on my computer it picks that up, but not my voice. Please help me on this much much appreciated!!

    Wait a minute. Please clarify.

    I'm guessing you mean to say "your sound card" records the sounds from Youtube, Or Ventrillo. And your mic doesn't record your voice (or any other sound via the mic, yes?)

    As having difficulty thinking it records other sounds via the mic but doesn't pickup your voice

    One thing to check in general... Go to control panel, sound and i forget exactly where (probably under an Advanced Property) but find the check box that allows an application exclusive use of the mic.UNCHECK it. Sounds like might be related to your problem

    Go to control panel -> sounds and audio devices.
    1.Click the advanced button right below the volume slide.
    2. Once thats up, select Options (top left), click properties.
    3. On the drop down menu select Realtek HD Audio Input (or whatever it calls your input device).
    4. Check all of the options in the lower box and hit ok. Make sure everything but Recording and Mic Volume are muted, then exit.

    If this doesn't work, let me know.
