NEED HELP! Cant get Headset working

Recommended Posts

Hey guys i have a problem it seems

 

i bought the Creative Fatality Headset today so i could talk to mates on Left 4 Dead and when i tryed to plug it in today guess what

 

didnt work!

 

Im using the onboard sound from my motherboard

 

The motherboard im using is a Intel DP965LT or in short the 965 chipset

 

The Motherboards audio drivers are powered by the Intel Audio Studio Controller

 

Im current using a 2.1 speaker system and works perfectly from the onboard output or "front" jack connection as they call it

when i put my new headset into the front(output) jack and put the mic jack (from headset) into the corresponding input into the motherboard it doesnt do anything

it understands that something just got plugged in but when i test the audio device ie my headset for sound, only the tinnest bit of sound comes out nearly inaudible....

 

It also reconises which inputs have been plugged in

 

If searched the web for similar issues but its really hard to determine the actual cause because it could be anything really

 

I tried to install the updated audio drivers for my motherboard but my Service Pack 3 screws me over and actually deletes my orginal audio drivers when it couldnt install

 

If anybody could help me solve this problem i will be extremely happy

 

thanks alot

Do you have the right sound playback devices selected in Control Panel?

How high is your acceleration set in dxdiag? Try turning it to low.
