Major Issue: Ventrilo freezes PC (~30seconds at a time, mouse not frozen)
Hello, I recently purchased a new laptop (Windows Vista) and it hangs be working wonderfully. The only problem I have run into so far is with Ventrilo.

When I open Ventrilo all is well until I either connect, go into settings, or try to exit. Each of the three cause everything on my laptop to stop working (besides the mouse though I can't click) for about twenty to thirty seconds.

If I connect I can here everyone just fine but if I try to goto setup to customize it so I can actually use it it does the lockup again. I tried the hold down Ctrl to disable mixers and it still froze for the 20-30 seconds and then the popup saying mixers are disabled showed.

Edit: It only freezes on close if you close while connected, but still freezes on setup on both connected and not connected.
I have looked around quite a bit and have tried changing sound options, updating drivers, uninstalling codecs that might have interfered but nothing has helped.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I really need to fix this problem, I can't use Ventrilo at the moment and I need to for my clan.

set the vent icon to 'run as administrator'

check HP's website for audio driver updates

try temp disabling the onboard web cam

in vent setup, set both input/output device to altec lansing and try with 'use direct sound'

I tried all of that and still no luck. :(

have you tried uninstalling, delete the %appdata%\ventrilo folder then re-installing (make a note of your servers ipaddresses/port#s first)

Titanius 03-03-2008 09:46 PM

Tried it, no difference. :( This really sucks.

Prog-Rocker 03-04-2008 02:19 PM

try un-installing the soundcard driver, reboot, re-install the soundcard driver

Seemed to help because the setup opened right away and it connected with no freeze, but now its back to its old ways and I changed nothing and did not open any other programs. It was working for about 1 minutes and then went back to how it was and the only thing I touched was Ventrilo (didn't change any settings).
