Microphone on Headset Only Feedbacks

#1
This happened yesterday. My Mic was working fine in the morning and in the afternoon it no longer records. When it activates there is only feedback of what I hear from the system. I did not do anything to the setting of upgrading or installing anything new.

At first I thought it was just settings on my ventrillo, but after some testing I found out the problem is system wide. If I use the sound recorder from accessories it only records the sounds from the system like the youtube video I'm playing instead of what I'm saying into the mic.


I have tried everything I could think of. I have checked the connection (fine), check if the device is working (green check marks) , downgraded the driver (re-upgraded now), even did a system restore. Nothing seems to work.

Right now in the recording tab under sound in the control panel the microphone has a green check mark but the bars on the side only lights up when there is a system sound playing. It lights up the same way the headphone does. I assume it should only light up when the mic picks up sound.

Can anyone help me?

I have tried everything
Including another mic? The first thing I would have done is make sure the mic connection is good. If so, then try another mic to make sure it is not the mic, cable, or connector - which are all mass produced, low tech, and not very robust.
