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.

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.
