after a fresh install of windows a few months ago whenever i go into a game now to play, BF2, COD2, etc... my microphone stops working.
i have to minimize the game, go into my sound properties and unmute my mic! i have no idea why it is doing this but it sure is annoying when im on teamspeak before starting a game and people are talking to me and i have to wait for the game to finish loading, then minimize it and do the unmute.
does anyone know what causes this and how to fix it??
Are you using a USB mic, or a mic that connect to your Audio-In port?
If it's USB, it may need some drivers.
the mic plugs into the sound card
i had the same problem with bf2, i dont know why but it just started working again.
cmon, nobody has an answer to this?

Mine does that sometimes, but it seems to be on/off. Some days it works just fine. I have a regular headset mic that you plug into a mic jack on the sound card. Usually, it seems to work best after a fresh reboot.
im still searching for an answer to this problem? i have looked around the net and cant find a thing! i cant believe im the only one that has this problem?
