Default Guild Cant hear me

First i apologize if this is a second post on the same subject for some reason the first one isn't showing for me.
Anyway long story short when i run a test on vent and play it back i hear what i said but if i try to talk to my guild-mates they hear nothing or just a little bit of static that is generally very soft

i apologize too as i've been afk for awhile.

first, how does it sound in the windows audio test?

Windows XP
Control-Panel / Sounds and Audio / Voice Tab / Test Hardware Button
Start / Programs / Accessories / Entertainment > Sound Recorder

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

Windows 8
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

in vent setup, set the outbound amplifier to 0.
set the input device to the name of the mic you're using

you can also try setting the hardware mixer to the same name as the input device the use the 'line volume' slider to adjust the output.

and in the windows c-panel/sounds/recording tab/select the mic/properties/levels tab/try increasing the 'mic boost' option

if the mic requires a driver also make sure that it is up to date:

Check the Audio driver to make sure it is up to date. Or try re-installing the current driver.
(note: some USB Headsets do not require a driver)
(Don’t assume the driver is up to date as a newer one may have been released since the computer was built)

- If you have a brand-name PC, like Dell or HP, then check the manufacturers website for driver updates.
- If you built the PC and use the on-board sound device then check the motherboard manufacturers website for drivers for your model motherboard.
- If you use a plug-in soundcard, ex: SoundBlaster, then check that manufacturers website for drivers.

Also check for BIOS and chipset updates

When checking for BIOS, chipset and certain onboard hardware drivers, you should only check the pc (or specific motherboard) manufacturers website for your make/model. The manufacturer is responsible for maintaining the proper version of driver for their specific hardware.

For example: Realtek is an OEM manufacturer of audio chips and there are many different revisions of each. The latest driver found on the Realtek site may not be compatible with the version of chip in your pc, and could cause problems like 'stereo mix' to not be available. Realtek comments to this effect on their download page.
