    Hello, from Ventrilo site, f.a.q. section :

    Some games cause Ventrilo to delay sound and other functions. It has been discovered that some games, like BF1942, will consume all of the CPU time of your computer. This in turn starves other applications like Ventrilo preventing them from carrying out their associated tasks. This is especially bad for voice comm programs that run in the background and independently of any game.
    In the Setup-Misc page there is an option called "Process priority class". Setting it to high could very well solve these sorts of problems. However, please be sure to read the help documentation for this option so that you fully understand the ramifications of setting it to anything other then "Normal".


    Hope, it helps...

    Can you give us a littlebit more information about SFX settings with your hardware and direct sounds cause I am not familiar with windows 7. If is it possible can you post screenshots? :$

    Ive been havin the same problem for months now, ever since i installed windows 7 64-bit. But it only seams to happen when i try and play another game while having Vent running in the background. Ive tried setting the priority to high, unchecked the box in my audio options of letting programs to take priority etc etc, ive pretty much tried everything in this thread and nothing works. Does anyone know of any solid fixes, since there hasnt been many other [pst on this forum, maybe someone finally found what the main problem is/was. plz let me know

    I know this thread is a bit old but I found a solution that I thought might be worth sharing.

    I didn't use to have this weird lag issue (where I see the green icon light up and don't hear anything) before but it started happening after I reformatted my PC and installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 x64.

    I tried all other solution and none of them worked but this one did:

    I went into Setup > Checked "Use Direct Sound" under both Output device and Input device. I also selected my headset in the drop down list. I'm using a Microsoft USB Headset.

    Here's a pic of the setup window:
    vent-fix.
