No ingame sound when using skype or teamspeak. HELP!

I am running an HT Omega Striker 7.1 sound card, and the in game sound, and built in voice chat of BF works fine. When I try to play any game with Teamspeak or skype running, I lose all in game sound. I have already checked my mixer icon, and I have the communications tab set to do nothing when windows detects communications activity. I am at a loss, and dont know what else to do. HELP!

Couple of suggestions I found:

"I had this issue and I solved it. TeamSpeak 3->Settings->Plugins (Ctrl+Shift+P) and uncheck the "Volume Control" plugin. I haven't had a problem since I did this. "

Launch Teamspeak first

Hey everyone, if I play GTA IV and set-up my microphone via Games for Windows Live it doesn't detect any sound if I'm talking. Other applications like Skype, Teamspeak and Windows do catch the sound, but Games for Windows Live doesn't. Any help?
