Windows 7: Windows 7 Audio Reduces itself

Windows 7 Audio Reduces itself

While on the internet or using windows media player. If I ave my mic plugged in and I talk or someone else talks it automatically reduces the volume for a short period of time before going back to normal. I went and messed with all the audio options including putting communications to do nothing and it stays.

Running the lastest realtek audio drivers and this occurs at factory settings level.
Not sure what info would be needed to help me so please ask away anything. I know I stopped this problem at one point in time, but that was awhile ago and I have forgotten how I did it.

It depends what program you're using to talk to other people. If you're using TeamSpeak for example, it has its own sound correction settings and will duck the sound of your music even if you have it set not to do so on windows. What program is it you're using?

4 weeks late but I just joined literally today. Right click your speaker icon in the tray area then click sounds, go over to the communications tab and select "Do Nothing" then apply. I hope this fixes your problem!
