Unable to hear anything through headset on my desktop
Titles says it. I can't hear anyone talking in vent in my headset (turtle beach x1) when using it with my desktop. I know it's not the headset because it works with skype and live messenger. It's also weird because the exact same settings and same headset work perfectly with my laptop. I am able to talk just fine and everyone can hear me, but I have to have my headset hanging around my neck and my speakers up to hear anyone else, it's extremely annoying. I can hear all of vent's program sounds but no voices from people talking. My pc doesn't detect my headset either. Never has. But I plug the audio jack into my speakers and have a extension to plug the input into my soundcard.

do you hear event sounds, like connecting to a server or switching channels?
on vent main window at bottom, is 'mute sound' box checked?
in vent setup/voice-binds-speech tabs, set the output to enable 'use directsound' then set the name to turtle-beach
set the inbound amplifier to 0
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, like SoundBlaster, then check that manufacturers website for drivers.
Also check for BIOS and chipset updates
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)
If yes then:
Goto Vent setup/voice-binds-speech tabs / SFX button / Directional / Add “Front Left & Right 5.1 (or 7.1)”
