Default Xbox One controller disable my microphone on ventrillo


When I connect my Xbox One controller to my PC, it disables my microphone after I open Ventrilo. I used my controller a while back and it never did that. I wonder if its due to one of windows driver updates or something.

Scenario 1:

Vent is closed.
Connect my controller, Controller works fine and windows pick up my mic.
Open Ventrilo and connect to server.
This message appear: ''Failed to open sound input device. rc=-10, CreateCaptureBuffer failed. HR=E_FAIL. An undetermined error occurred''
Windows dont pick up mic anymore.

Scenario 2:
Vent is open. Every thing works fine.
Connect my controller, Controller not working.
Close Ventrille and reconnect controller.
Controller works and when i open vent again, same thing in scenario 1 happens.

Is there a way to fix this?

If this helps, i use a Razor Megalodon headset and genuine Xbox One controller. Both USB powered. Using Windows 7.

Its kinda frustrating that i cant use vent while playing with my controller.

this issue is likely due to a driver issue. suggest you try installing the win7 driver from microsoft.

i also had to install the win7/8 drivers on all my pcs. i followed the instructions here:

goto the following section for win7:
this shows for wireless but it worked with my usb xbox1

Download and install Xbox Wireless Controller drivers

in the driver listing, clik the link (non DFU) for the correct version, AMD64 for 64bit win7, X86 for 32bit win7

i would also suggest checking with your pc/mobo manufacturers website for updates to BIOS, chipset, usb drivers
