    for some reason my microphone starts to pick up in-game sounds today. (its a mic headset)
    its the icemat siberia full size headset (which is the headphone and mic are seperated)
    and when i tried it today in vent ppl say they can hear my gun fires. (not using speakers)
    its relaly weird so i went to contrl panel/sound control/ audio/ and tried to mute my microphone. the option is not there so i go to the properties of volume control. to the check boxes. the microphone options is not there...

    In that picture you included, the middle window that says Properties at the top, tick the circle next to Recording and make sure Microphone is checked at the bottom then click ok then check its level.

    In your picture you have "Playback" ticked instead of "Recording"

    When you selected "Recording", were all of the options that popped up in the "Show the following volume controls" below, ticked?

    apparently i returned my siberia headset and used an old radio shack desktop microphone which lots of ppl complain a bout the horrible quality fixed the "echo" of speakers.

    but i am soon gettin a new microphone and would still have to face this problem (I hope not)

    I didnt change any settin in the control except switching the microphone...
    could it be just my driver of sound not allowing it as an option??
