Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I just got a Gigaware headset model 43-122 today to use with Skype. I set up my computer's audio properties according to the limited instructions that came with the headset. I got the headphones and microphone to work, and the mute button works also. The problem, however, is that the inline volume buttons on the headset have no effect whatsoever. In addition, a green light next to the buttons flashes rapidly and continually when the headset is in use. I triple and quadruple checked my setup and found nothing wrong. Since the headset bypasses my computer's sound card, I cannot control the volume with the computer's volume control either. The only way I've found to do it is to go into the device's audio properties in the control panel to change the volume settings. This is obviously way too cumbersome for practical use with live online voice chat.
I am using the headset on a Toshiba Satellite A-105 laptop with Windows XP Home OS and 2 GB RAM. The soundcard is a Realtek HD.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
GOTO CONTROL PANEL-- check the audio devices, see if its set to the default device under playback and recording device, default is realtek,,,

Make sure they are plugged into a power source if they are powered. If they are unpowered then your laptop may not have a powered speaker output and may not have enough power to drive the speakers.

it sounds like the headphones shorted out the usb on your system, you might try some speakers that are not usb and see what you come up with,,,also check and make sur your sound isnt muted on the master control for the volume

Check which microphone device u have set up. Try changing it around. Also try just speaking closer to the microphone and into the mic. Some mics just are not good.
