Well, here I am again! This time I'm querying about my microphone. I have a Microsoft Lifechat LX-3000. When I talk to other people they can hear all the background noise and every detail of it, which means if I were at the other side of the room talking quietly, they could still pretty much hear me. This is very frustrating as I become too scared to make a single noise. I have Windows Vista and I have tried to lower the sensitivity with no success (additionally I don't really know how) so hopefully someone can point me in the right direction and help me to lower the microphone sensitivity? Thanks.

Although I don't use Vista specifically, check under your volume control. Odds are the os have checked 20+db boost which makes your mic more sensitive so the sounds(by amplifying quieter sounds).

My Sister's Boyfriend had a check around for any volume controls but we found nothing to do with any microphone sensitivity :/
