    Have tried that. The mic volume is set to MAX there. But when I click on Control Panel>Speech and then on Adjust. The volume is set very low on the actual device. And its stuck there. I cant manually adjust it.

    I think it tries to adjust it to optimal automatically... Problem is, it think the Optimal setting is much lower than it should be. Thanks

Delete the registry files for the devices and then uninstall the driver from device manager and then uninstall the software.

That worked for me.

I had same problem with Yahoo Messenger until I found an option to disable it (Auto mic volume). Go to Preferences -> Calling & Audio and check the "Do not modify my mixer settigs (Advanced)".

    I didn't uninstall the registry files, but uninstalling the software from control panel gave a huge boost to the microphone sound, and I can now hear myself in the headphones as I talk, which I couldn't do before.
    The software sucks!

  1. Click on Start.
  2. Go to All Programs.
  3. Highlight Accessories.
  4. Highlight Entertainment.
  5. Click on Volume Control.
  6. Adjust the slider.
That should fix it

Why are callers getting a busy and then "service is restricted" message when they call me?

Its not the phone you have a dead short in one of your phone jacks. Call you phone provider and have them run the short down. If you have VOIP or service from a cable modem plug the base straight into the Tel1 plug in the back of the modem.
