Default Very strange vent issue

I have been recently having a big vent issue past 2-3 days. I can log in, talk, hear others talk just fine. But after a time..I stop hearing anything they say. They turn green, can see them talking, they can hear me talk, but I can't hear them.

Here is the thing though, If I disconnect, or they disconnect from the server, all the stuff I couldn't hear them saying finally starts coming through. It doesn't play over itself, its like back to back, everything I couldn't hear gets played like it was queued up or something. And I can only hear it if one of us disconnects.

Any idea?

Default

first i would suggest disabling all un-used audio 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"
-------------

the in vent setup/voice-binds-speech tabs, set the output device to enable 'use directsound' then set the dropdown box to the name of the audio device you're using
-----------

if your audio device requires a driver then make sure it is up to date:

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, ex: SoundBlaster, then check that manufacturers website for drivers.

Also check for BIOS and chipset updates

When checking for BIOS, chipset and certain onboard hardware drivers, you should only check the pc (or specific motherboard) manufacturers website for your make/model. The manufacturer is responsible for maintaining the proper version of driver for their specific hardware.

For example: Realtek is an OEM manufacturer of audio chips and there are many different revisions of each. The latest driver found on the Realtek site may not be compatible with the version of chip in your pc, and could cause problems like 'stereo mix' to not be available. Realtek comments to this effect on their download page.
-------

if you still have the problem then can you post the following plz:

Start > Run
Dxdiag

Click the 'Save All' button
File is saved to the desktop as "DxDiag.txt"
Copy/paste the information (up to, and including, the [PS/2 Devices] section) to the forum. The information might have to be separated into multiple posts due to the maximum character limitation.
