speakers muted automatically with some reason


i have this weird problem that i'm not sure is specific to me, but more of a windows 7 or Lenovo laptop, so any help would be appreciable.

the problem is as follows:

Whenever i use skype, msn or any other thing that make noise, the speakers are muted automatically and i need to press the mute/unmute button to re-enable the sound.

Does anyone know what can i do to disable windows 7 from doing it?

Right click on the Microsoft speaker icon in the system tray, select "Playback Devices".

Look fo a tab that's labeled "Communications". Select it and then select... "Do Nothing".

Does that help?
