Windows 7: Headset Mic & Sounds Playing At The Same Time

Headset Mic & Sounds Playing At The Same Time

As the Title says.

My Speakers and Internal Speakers along with the Microphones are screwing up.

This problem only started today, I haven't got a clue why and I haven't changed any settings whatsoever, Everything was working fine until one moment they weren't.

I've gone into Sound to try and fix the issue, I set my Sounds as Default for the headset, and I still have them playing through both, and I did the same for the Microphone, only on that one.

In Playback Devices, Speakers / Headphones is one and Communication Headphones is another, even if I disable the first, I can't get the second as Default for both, it won't let me have Default Device for only the Communication Headphones.

Under Recordcing it's much the same issue except the first one is Internal Mic, it's allowed me to put the Microphone / Line In as Default, except it won't pick up sounds from the Mic, only the Internal Mic even if it's not enabled.

So any help would be useful, searched your other threads 4 or 5 on here and none have been helpful in fixing my issue as they're different to mine, so please don't revert me to another thread.

First thing, do you have the correct Dell sound driver. Non-Dell sound drivers tend to not work or not work correctly. This is the correct Dell IDT sound driver:
Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]
The "Speakers" should be the default playback device. In the Recording section along with the mic you should have the System Mixer (could be called Stereo Mix) and that should be the default recording device.

I'm not sure about the IDT, but many systems have a sound device control panel, located in the Control Pane/Hardware and Sound and they can be configured for both headset and speakers at the same time or configured that the headset mutes the speakers.
