Default Push To Talk Won't Activate

Hello,

Recently I have lost the ability to send my voice outbound on ventrilo. I am using Windows Vista and the latest drivers for my sound card. The weird thing is pressing push to talk no longer activates the speaker by my name. Previously, pressing the PTT would turn this green, but no more. Letting the sound of my voice trigger vent doesn't work either. When tested in "Monitor" it seems to be picking up my voice fine. I've tried uninstalling ventrilo twice, but to no avail. I don't know what else to do. I've adjusted everything in setup, but the problem remains.

Thanks for any help.

make sure 'mute mic' is not checked on main window

set both vent and online games to 'run as administrator' (rt-clik their icons)

I finally got it to work by installing an old creative Soundblaster Live soundcard. Of course Creative doesn't make drivers for Vista for these cards, so I then had to remove the card. After that, the problem was magically fixed and I could use the Realtek onboard sound again and my push to talk worked again with the mic and speakers plugged into the jacks on the back of the computer. Who knows?
