I use a chat thing called Ventrilo. I can only hear people and cant talk they say im muted. When i go to test hardware on the Sound and Audio platform and i speak it doesnt register at all. In fact the computer hardware, when i plug it in, doesnt even acknowledge it. It's like its not plugged in.
I have just bought a cyber cy2501hs headset plugged it in and all i get is a low noise, comp does not detect it, I go into sounds and audio manager and the whole thing is grey can't click nothing to change it or make it work, there is no cd for driver helpppp!!!!
I have XP pro service pack 3.

You may have accidentally pressed the Mute button. Undo as below
Mute a Call:
You can talk to someone nearby without letting the caller hear you during a call. During a call: Press <C> t o mute the microphone and "MUTED" will display on the LCD.
Your caller cannot hear you. Press <C> again to unmute the microphone.
There are two obvious reasons (and a number of not-so obvious ones) for this.
1. Have you got your sound on (and adjusted properly) ? You might have your sound turned down or off on your PC or just within Skype. To test if your sound is working, try making a test call using the Skype test call facility.
2. Your friend's microphone may not be working, they may not have one or its sensitivity in Skype may be turned down or it may be 'muted'. Ask to check that her microphone is not muted. Ask her to make a test call on Skype and adjust her microphone sensitivity so that she can hear herself sensibly.
On my version of Skype the test call has appeared in 'contacts' but now it is accessible from the menu at the top left of the window from the call > audio settings menu/page. You can change your volume, microphone and speaker sensitivity settings on that page. You may have a different version of Skype of course.
Try going to Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices
Click on Voice Tab and make sure the proper device is selected. Click on Volume and make sure levels are appropriate. Lastly, click on Test Hardware and wait until you can speak into the mic to see the voice levels. If you can see the voice levels, then your mic probably works and it is just an issue of configing the COD settings.
