Computer Mic Issue

Does anyone have any idea why my computer is doing this to me? For some reason my mic records not only what I say but also what I HEAR!

For example; I'll be in CS and if I try to talk while there is a lot of gunfire or when someone else is talking my mic will transmit all of that + my voice.

Anyone got a solution to this odd problem? My friends are kind of annoyed...

    I experienced this issue myself and solved it for a couple other people. The problem lies with your audio mixer. There is a setting somewhere that dictates which audio streams go into your outbound audio, and you should be able to change it. What program are you using to speak to your friends, and do you have any programs that control the sound on your computer?

    I'm mainly using Vent. But sometimes we like to use the in-game CS voice, too. Those are really the only things I use voice with. And I don't have any other programs messing with my sound. It's just whatever those give me.

    In Vent under setup, try messing with Output Device, Input Device, and Hardware Input Mixer in your settings. I use a third party sound program called the Realtek HD Audio Manager. It has a 'Record' section under Mixer, in which you can adjust the Mic Volume, Line Volume, and Stereo Mix. I muted all but Mic Volume and the problem stopped. Not sure how to do this with default windows sound management.
