Good evening.

I play a fair amount of games online with my friends and use skype to chat to them. Now up until a few months ago this was all fine and dandy however now (for some unknown reason) when I play a game/listen to music and am in a skype call only the skype call plays through my headset while everything else goes through my computer. Annoying for 2 reasons: 1. I want to hear everything. 2. Everyone else can hear everything through my mic.

Now I've googled this issue (seems fairly common) however most 'fixes' are something I've already tried or simply don't work. People seem to be resorting to fucking voodoo for the issue.

Anyone got any ideas? (I'm fairly computer literate btw)

It would be really helpful if you elaborated a little bit on what you already tried. Have you checked your default audio device and made sure your headphones aren't set as a default communication device?

Sorry I'll elaborate a little:

I've tried fiddling around with default playback and recording devices, making my headset deafult then the other way around and so on had no effect. I have also tried working it through skype settings itself with a mixture of skype audio settings and PC audio settings. To be honest it feels like I'm playing a game of trial and error where nothing seems to work :lulz;

Sounds weird. Look if you have any soundcard-related software installed, sometimes they override windows settings. Also systematically go through all the menus of the windows sound options and (un)tick stuff. If that doesn't help it might be a driver-related issue. Maybe rollback to a previous version?
