first:

Testing the Microphone with Windows
(the microphone must work here before it will work with any voice-comm program)

Windows XP
Control-Panel / Sounds and Audio / Voice Tab / Test Hardware Button

Windows Vista/Windows 7
Programs / Accessories / Sound Recorder / create a recording then save it
Windows Media Player (WMP) / playback recording


then check for this:

Hi! I have found this problem occurs when you do not have a Mic plugged into any microphone port before starting Ventrilo. Specifically, this is for computers with plug detection.

If there is no mic plugged in, there is no default device selected by Windows 7.

Solution: Plug your microphone in before starting Ventrilo client.

I realize this issue is over 2 years old, but it shows up high on searches for this error. Hope this helps people!

Strange as I'm getting this error now on Windows 10. I tried plugging in mic before turning on Ventrilo but it didn't work.

@ intime

does your pc have a second mic input jack?

have you tried testing the mic in windows yet?

Windows 8 / 10
Windows Control-Panel / Hardware and Sound / Sound - Manage audio devices / Recording tab
Select the current Midrophone device / Set as Default / Properties / check the levels in 'Levels' tab / check the effects in the 'Enhancements' tab
Goto 'Listen' tab / select the proper 'Playback' device / click the 'Listen to this device' box and click 'Apply'
Speak into the mic and listen for playback / check the Levels and Enhancements again to adjust the sound
When setup is complete, un-check the 'Listen to this device' box and click Apply
-------------

can you post the following plz:

DXDIAG

Start > Run
Dxdiag

Click the 'Save All' button
File is saved to the desktop as "DxDiag.txt"
Copy/paste the information (up to, and including, the [PS/2 Devices] section) to the forum. The information might
