hey there, recently, i've been getting this issue on vent when i log into it and no one can hear me talk, no matter how much i bork around with the input/output settings, the error i get is:

"inputFind VolFaderFailed (-1) For non-Mux based mixer"

If i turn the Mixer off in the setup control panel the error no longer comes up but no one can hear me still.

I've been told it may be a sound card issue, my Sound card Driver is a RealTek high definition Audio, I'm having trouble find out specifically which driver i'm supposed to download.

I have Vista Home premium 32bit OS.

I've been to the Realtek website but its rather confusing and i'm really not sure what i'm supposed to be downloading, or whether its ok to uninstall the Driver, as i'm not to sure how to go about re-installing it, the 'search for driver updates never seems to find 'any' drivers when i search for new ones, never has.

So i've come here as its imo the best idea, your all dam good when it comes to this kinda stuff :thumbsup:

Could i please have some help as to how to look into fixing the Vent issue, and whether it is a sound card driver issue e.t.c.

thanks muchly!!

If the sound is "onboard" post the make & model of the motherboard.

If it is a "branded" computer [Dell,HP,Compq,etc.] post the make/model of the computer.
