Cant talk at all

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 am having the same problem. This is like my third one too. I've had it maybe a few weeks, used it maybe 4 or 5 times, it seems comfortable, a good microphone, great recording...But won't pick up my voice. Nor will it let me hear sound from it. And I have the volume up. And it is not muted.

Why when I phone some one I can hear them but they cant heat me

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.

I call my friend and i cannot hear her while she is talking.

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.

When i use of voice chat i cant hear my friends voice but she can hear me.

Check that microphone is not muted or low. Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Manage Audio Device> Sound > Microphone >Properties > Level.

Why i my chat mates cant hear my voices when im talking.

Numer of reasons. Your Mic may be muted. Unmute it in the Audio icon in the right bottom corner. The settings of your IM are incorrect. Set the Mic.

Mute is turned on cannot hear phone ring. How to turn mute off Mute is turned on . Have no dial tone can't call any one and can't answer the Phone How do you turn mute off?

I can't talk or hear outta my phone. I can dial people but i cant hear them and they cant hear. My phone model Cordless 5.8GHz Edge Dual Handset Phone System with Caller ID:

Can hear everything except my girlfriend ):

Is it through an IM program? If so I had a simular problem and I open the sound settings and made sure non of them were muted and it worked fine after that.


in the windows volume control un mute the microphone and also, you can get a program like ventrilo

its a voice chat software, use the setup to test your microphone.

Cant talk

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. goodl luck
