Microphone problem on SteelSeries Serbia v2! HELP!!

I really need help with a problem I have with my headphones! I have a SteelSeries Siberia V2 USB headset. An example of my problem: I record something through Camtasia and want my voice to be recorded when the background noise is included. When I have headphones connected via USB to the computer, I hear only my voice, also includes background noise. But there is always a strong, loud noise coming from something that sounds to be the computer's fan. When I disconnect the USB device and uses standard audio port on the sound card, I can record the background noise with very high quality. However, I can not record my voice simultaneously. If anyone knows what this problem might be, I would be eternally grateful if that person could tell what it was. I have my suspicions that it is a driver I need to download. Thank you for taking the time to read and help.

  • check the system - device manager for sound and audio adapter, checks for any markings on the device red x, yellow ? , or ! checks for any sound blaster if not detected (removed it and install back)
  • uninstall and re-install the sound and audio device driver, or
  • install the sound drivers
  • use a headset or external speaker if it works the internal speaker needs replacement

SOURCE: DELL 630m audio problem

It may be that your PC is now reading the mike as a crystal mike and the signal is too strong. Try to attenute the signal by pluging the mike into a mixer box to reduce the signal strength.

SOURCE: Trying To Hear Audio Through Headphones While Recording.

There are a lot of people having the same problem with Vista. Check this link for some ideas. I think there is a new on Microsoft update that addresses this issue under audio drivers that gives you more controls in the playback devices tab. Here is the first link: Here is another: and finally the one that was easiest to understand: My son has the same problem with his Compaq laptop and I am truly glad I stuck with XP. Please let me know how you make out.

My steelseries siberia v2 headset doesn't work for my sisters dell laptop but it works for my toshiba, how do i get it to work for dell?

I don't know what kind of connection you're using, but my guess is that the headphone has a 3.5mm 4 pin connection (has 4 sections of metal on it, and uses the same style connection used in an ipod).

So the reason it will work on your computer is because your receiver has the ability to read 4 pin connections. Hers is likely only for sound (the 3 pin connection). She likely has an additional receiver for a mic, separate from the headphones (thankfully we're seeing fewer and fewer of these).

You may be able to find an adapter at Radio Shack.

The right headphone doesnt work.. the headphones are almost new S:

1. check to make sure everything is plugged in correctly.

2. run a check to make sure that whatever it is you were playing was not simply being routed only to the left ear.

3. check to make sure the cable has not been pulled to much and the wires have been detached from the right ear piece. (this could be tricky as it may require some deconstruction, please be careful)

4. check to make sure the membrane on the right ear has not been broken.

Is the steelseries 7h usb headset compatable with the ps3

Hello Sixlittledev,

Although the 7H USB headset is not natively supported by PS3, you may be able to get it to work if you have a headphone jack in your TV.

You will need to connect the headset in the following manner:
Headset microphone cable -> USB card -> PS3
Headset audio cable -> 3.5mm extension cable -> TV headphone jack

Although we do not guarantee compatibility and this method is a bit cumbersome, you can get it to work this way.

How to upgrade to USB 2.0

hi this could be that the usb ports on your system are only usb v1 and not usb v2, if you require your items to run on usb v2 you will need to get a usb v2 pci card the things will work still just at a reduced rate of speed there will be no drivers for your usb ports to upgrade them as it is hardware related and not software related, usb v2 cards are generally cheep to buy and easy to install and set up....hope this helped

Broken Usb!! Please Help!!

If its a tomtom one V2 then the only way to charge is via USB . Looks like you need a repair. There are many places to get it repaired other than TomTom but we need to know where in the WORLD you are ? Theres no point in telling you theres a repair shop in Downtown Sidney if you actually live in France .
