    Well, I'm not going to lie, I registered to help troubleshoot this :p

    I just picked up a new headset (it's irrelevant, but for bragging rights, Sennheiser PC350 :p), and Windows and microphones have ALWAYS given me problems. I've got it now to where Windows picks up the mic and it works, but people can hear what I'm listening to. I.e., if I play some music, whoever I'm talking to in skype can hear the music; MSN messages, themselves talking, etc etc.

    I'm using an nForce 680i SLI, with Realtek HD (5.00.10) drivers. These are my current windows settings (I haven't installed Photoshop yet, so MS Paint it is =():

    The way I fixed the mic before was I set it up how I knew it was supposed to work, rebooted, and Windows picked up my mic. I'm thinking I have to set it correctly again (so this sound echo/reverb goes away) and do a reboot.

    Does anyone have any idea?


    I found out what the problem was. (MSPaint again yay!)

    P.S. I do like the layout and the "we'll help if you if we can" attitude around here....I might stick around and throw in my 2 cents when I can ;)
