Hello. Well me and my buddy use Ventrilo for gaming. A couple of days ago we set up everything right (he was having microphone problems) and we could talk to each other. 2 days later it doesn't work. He didn't change a thing in SoundMax or WinXP sound settings OR Ventrilo settings. He plugged the microphone jack the same way too. Skype and Sound Recorder doesn't work either. It's just some random noise coming from him. I told him to try and re-plug the mic jack a couple of times and try turning it clock-wise, no help. What might be the cause here? All the settings stayed the same We'll try anything.
