So some of you may know I have this annoying issue with audio that when sound (game ambience, youtube video sound etc) is low, my whole audio mutes.
I have looked this up; and at first I found it was to do with a communications thing in windows that mutes sound for communications devices such as Teamspeak and Skype. Having disabled this function, the issue still occurs.
I have now discovered this: http://support.turtlebeac ... com/entry/830517562/
I currently operate the Turtle Beach Shadow so this is applicable; however unlike the diagram in this post; my headset ONLY HAS A USB connection; not the jack input.
The post says specifically NOT to use the device shown as "Speakers (Turtle Beach Shadow)" and to use the other device with a picture of headphones beside it; subtitled "realtek high definition audio". I do not have this speaker picture picture beside any device.
This is my situation:
In the post; the headphone-icon device is subtitled as a realtek device and as you can see I have tried setting my realtek as my default device; but no audio occurs.
I know it says something about motherboards but I ain't got a clue what I'm doing. I use an Alienware X51 PC.
