Problem with headset/sound card

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

New guy here, but you will not see me post too much. I couldn't think about a more appropiate title, since I don't know what is the exact problem. Besides, there is a strange sequence of events. I had gotten myself an ASUS P7P55D-E, with it's integrated sound card VIA VT1828S, and the Gamecom 377 headset. Using the voice chat function of Steam, I could hear my voice as if it were an echo. There was a delay of about half a second between what I speak and my echo. My friend could hear his echo, too.

After I updated the VIA drivers (version .8700), my friend (which uses the same headset but dedicated sound card) stopped hearing his echo, but I still could hear mine.

Now it gets more strange. I was just fiddling with some settings which did not affect the echo. Moments later, in which no setting was touched, except the function "Set up a microphone", my friend started listening directly to my headphone output. I could hear him differently, too. I tried disabling my microphone through the Recording tab in Windows 7, but nothing changed. He could still hear my headphone output.

What I'm going to do now is reinstall the drivers. I know it will not solve the echo problem, but at least it will stop my friend from listening to my headphone.

Can anyone try to define my problem and give a solution?

Maybe you have your 'line out' set as your recording device under recording options?

I must ask, what is this "line out"? How do I reach it? Please excuse my ignorance. I took a screenshot of this, if it helps.

Sorry, I'm still learning these forum commands.
