Need help with Voice Chat.

yesterday, i got a new CPU n mobo n ram. The new mobo has onboard sound.

I used headsets. I can listen to music very well... i tested the mic with the Windows sound recorder. It is working fine...

But only when i try voice chat on yahoo messenger, windows live or Gtalk, it doesnt work... its not like it does not work at all, but i get strange sounds... the mic n volume controls on the chat window show activity, but no legible sound at all... the opposite person cant hear anything either.

I have tried reinstalling the sound drivers, no luck.

sounds like your IM apps aren't configured correctly. If you can hear sound from other apps (Media Player, etc...),. then your sound drivers aren't the problem.

I would try reinstalling the IM programs to see if that fixes the problem, or check the settings to make sure they are pointing to the correct sound device.

I had that kind of problem with XP working and Vista not. I believe it's a driver issue that needs to be addressed. btw, I don't use vista anymore.
