I'm using Windows 7 and a Razer headset.
I was using Skype, talking to a friend with just the pink jack plugged in so that I can hear his voice through speakers and he can hear me perfectly fine.
I exited Skype, used Google and YouTube for a while, then turned Skype back on to talk to my friend when the following happened:
I was playing Team Fortress 2 at this point when my friend said "Hi" - I heard him clearly through the speakers (along with Team Fortress 2) and I reply back. However he messaged me to say that he couldn't hear me and that he could only hear my game.
I hit the "Listen to this device" option under sound to see what he was talking about and clearly enough, my mic is only playing sound off my computer, like music, videos, games, anything. Anything that's entering the mic (like my voice or even blowing on it) has no effect at all.
Previously I noticed there was a sound enhancer option or something under the sound menu in Control Panel, which allowed you to add more db or some thing or subtract more db. That entire option is gone now.
Any ideas how to fix this?
