    Hello,

    Ive been searching for months for a solution to my problem but unfortunately ive been unable to solve this.

    So i thought id try here.

    I bought 2 sets of gaming headphones, one for myself and one for my girlfriend.

    I did this because i work away and its much cheaper to talk over the internet than it is by phone.

    She is using my pc which is running Windows Vista Ultimate and the recording is working fine over there.

    Im using a slightly older pc which was running xp but is now on the BETA 7100 Build Windows 7.

    I have the headphones on all the time the sound is great, but it just will not pick up anything in the recording devices, not even if I "Show disabled devices"

    Its no where to be seen, its a line in and not a usb.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Ben.

    Its knocking on about 4 years old now i think,

    Ive upgraded the RAM & Graphics card though.

    Its still today not a bad system but i think the drivers may be out of date, but ive no clue how to get a hold of them.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Sure, no problem. If you use the app I suggested or this one: SiSoftware Sandra 2009 SP3 15.124 (freeware) download from Guru3D.com

    Both will give you the information you require as well as a little more..

    If you look at the screenshot, you'll see I'm using Everest and have highlighted what you need to click in order to get to the info you need..

    Hmm.. maybe we should now look at your recording devices and make sure everything is ok in that department...
    What are you using Goochington?

    Could you look in Device manage and see if any entry has a yellow flag next to it on the PC that is not working correctly?

    Could you go to Start > Run, and type msinfo32.

    Expand the Components section and click on your video card. This will give us more details.

    Is your network card running OK/

    I would ckick on the entry and choose remove or uninstall.

    Windows might pick up a driver for it on reboot.
