Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet
Reformatting has no relevance here.
They hear you, but you can't hear them. Which means, your OS is able to communicate with the sound hardware. Also means, the driver is not likely to be the cause. Check sound properties & see how many audio devices are listed. If more than 1 sound card is listed, see which input device (i.e., sound in) is the default. Set the output device to the same.
Check the sound output jack. Plug in a headphone or a different set of speakers. Then, play an mp3 or wav file. If you get sound, then the problem is with the msnger config.
If you do not get any sound, then you might have a bad jack. There is also a small chance that the driver is incorrect and works only with the input, but not the output. This is not very likely as Win7 is better at handling drivers than prior versions. Make sure the driver you're using is for W7. XP or Vista driver will not work properly.
