Default Vent lag spike. Everything is quiet/hear no one. All voices pop up in 2mins

This old thread is exactly what's happening to me
Except I am using Windows 8.1, using the latest 64 bit vent on default settings.

Note that my friends are able to hear me and I can hear my mic press down button when it's pressed, but I more than often can't hear them.

Don't have any sound drivers as my headset doesn't require them (Audio Technica ATH-AD700).

Other computer's are able to use this internet connection fine on Ventrilo. Teamspeak and other sound programs also work on this computer, just not Vent.

Using an ASUS Gryphon Z97 Motherboard, my computer build can be found here -

Thanks in advanced for any help guys!

ok, let's check some settings first:

in vent setup/voice-binds-speech tabs, is the output device set to the onboard audio name?
is there an option to select either the rear or front jack?

from what i can tell, the headset is an analog version which plugs into the onboard audio (Realtek) which does require a driver. check the asus website for your model mobo for any BIOS, chipset, and drivers

Is your system sound configured for 5.1 or 7.1?
(XP - windows control-panel / sounds / click the ‘Advanced’ button in the ‘Speaker Settings’ section / speaker setup input box setting)
(Vista/Win7 – windows control-panel / sounds / Playback / select speaker device / ‘Configure’ button / Audio Channels)
(Window8 - windows control-panel / hardware and sound / sound (manage audio devices) / select speaker device / ‘Configure’ button / Audio Channel configuration)

If yes then:
Goto Vent setup/voice-binds-speech tabs / SFX button / Directional / Add “Front Left & Right 5.1 (or 7.1)”

Disabling non-essential Audio Devices - Vista/Windows-7

Windows Control-Panel > Sound > Playback & Recording tabs > rt-click in the window and select "Show Disabled Devices" and "Show Disconnected Devices" > rt-click on all unused devices and select "disable"

if the realtek audio manager is installed you can also check settings there too.
