So I lost my headset for about five minutes so I decided to use an old headset that I used to use. It is a Rosewill RHTS-8206. So I decided to just plug it in and use it. So I ran into an issue: IT IS VERY LOUD. Even if I set the volume to 0 (not muted, but bringing the slider in Windows 7 to 0), I can still hear through it. Anything over 2 is unbearable.
So I did the logical thing and installed (restarted the computer as it requested) the proper drivers from their website. However, I ran into the same problem. Everything was too loud. In addition, whenever I tried to open up the RECORDING tab it will freeze and I cannot do anything (I have to end task or end task tree). Also, I hear weird sounds coming out of my headset and whenever I try to use my microphone in Skype (by changing to it in the options) no sound comes out.
So I uninstalled the software and when I tried to restart my computer as it asked, it hung at the shut down screen so I turned it off manually. It's still quite loud and I do not know what to do.
I'm new here. Be nice please
