Hey guys.

I've been using Skype for about a month and it's worked great. But a week or so ago, my sound settings got messed up. Now when I call people, they hear my voice very softly but they can hear the sounds on my computer (for example music I'm playing). My computer sounds can be heard even when my mic is unplugged.

This might have something to do with installing Audacity and changing the recording settings.

My sound card says High Definition Audio, which I assume means built in. Motherboard: M4A785TO-V EVO

I know it's not a microphone problem because the sound levels in the Setup a Mic wizard look right

What I've tried so far:
  • System Restore
  • Uninstalling and reinstalling sound drivers.
  • Turning mic volume higher on Skype (maximum)

Some old threads I read give some solutions for Windows XP. Exactly what is being described here:

Thanks for any help,
The Panda

Somehow this fixed itself when I plugged in another mic, then put the old one back :huh: .

What's strange is that my computer sounds are no longer heard. I didn't touch any settings.

With Regards,
The Panda

Sounds like possible failing soundcard/chip...or corrupt drivers. I'd run the Sound Troubleshooter.
