I've got a Turtle Beach PX11, generic headset/mic device. I'm pretty sure it's not the device that is faulty, but something with the drivers and settings on my laptop.Problem:
Mic does not pick up my audio on one laptop only. Works properly on other devices.What May Have Caused the Problem:
I once restored the laptop from Hibernate (Win 7 OS), and plugged in this headset in mid-bootup. Since that time, the device properly broadcasts sound to the headphones, and recognizes sound entering the mic under both push-to-talk and constant broadcast use. However, no sound I make is broadcast. For example, in TF2, the icon shows up when I hit the push-to-talk button, but no sound carries over.
In troubleshooting the problem, I went here
and did the steps, compensating for Win 7. I come to this
screen, and use Sound Recorder to record my voice for a moment, using both microphone definitions as a Set Default. Neither sound recording plays back my voice.
The "Configure" button simply asks for a Stereo option and then tests those speakers (with really no other options either). "Properties" has nothing useful either, unless I don't want programs to exercise taking full control of the device. And again, Wife was able to use the microphone on a different device just fine.
Q: Where do I go from here?
