I am having trouble using vent with my new SWTOR Razer headset. I had no problems over the weekend, but starting yesterday I got this error:
Failed to open sound input device. rc=-10, CreateCaptureBuffer failed. HR=E_FAIL. An undetermined error occurred.
Through a series of steps - including restarting vent, restarting SWTOR, unplugging the headset and more - I am able to get the headset and mic to work for about 10 minutes. Then, all of my audio disappears and I get the error. I have tried different USB ports although not the ones my keyboard and mouse are plugged into, and those have never failed.

What version of windows are you running?
what version of vent? 3 or 4

the 'CreateCaptureBuffer failed' indicates a problem with the microphone.

in vent setup, set the input device to the razer mic name

try disabling all other redording devices:
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"

check with razers support site for any firmware updates for the headset

also check the pc's support site for any BIOS, chipset, audio driver updates
