All system sounds playing through mic?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have just recently built my rig using the MSI P67A-GD55 (B3) motherboard with the built in Realtek HD Audio. Everything on my system has been running as smooth as glass with the exception of this problem. Every time I use my mic in Skype or other chat programs, everyone on the other end can hear a direct feed of the music/audio/game through my microphone. This of course causes many problems when trying to communicate with people and the sound of the game drowns out my own voice.

I have updated to the latest drivers using the "Live Update 5" by MSI. I have fooled around with the options in the sound manager on the "Realtek HD Audio Manager", but to no avail.

Any insight on this issue would be greatly appreciated!

First of all, select your Microphone as the default recording device on Windows Sound Manager. Second, look at Skype's settings, you have probably enabled an option that uses your sound mix (which means all your output) as your recording instrument.
