I have two problems, the first one being my main concern.
In my recording volume controls, the volume adjustments are grayed out.
The playback controls are fine, but I can't adjust the input ones.
In the Realtek HD Audio Manager, the input controls don't even have bars at all.
Conclusion: something is stopping me from adjusting input controls.
I have updated the drivers, at least I think I have... I downloaded and installed the HD Audio Codec Driver from realtek.com
Note: this was my second time installing the audio drivers... I had originally installed them from Gigabyte.
I can hear sound fine from my speakers and headset, and my microphone works... I just can't adjust the volume (I mainly want to adjust stereo mix).
I've searched around and some other people have had this problem... the best answer anyone had was "maybe your drivers don't support it."
I use Ventrilo a lot. (Ventrilo - Surround Sound Voice Communication Software
Ventrilo uses Text-to-speech for various functions, but my text-to-speech is no longer working.
I tried both of the solutions on ventrilo's website, listed here:
Ventrilo - FAQ
No dice. Everything else works fine, I simply cannot hear text-to-speech.
Any help on either of these issues would be greatly appreciated.
