Ok i got my sound working but if i try and use my mic in ventrilo or teamspeak or even sound recorder i have trouble

ventrilo- Failed to open sound input device. Another program might have it open already


teamspeak- shows i dont have a mic

sound recorder- Your audio hardware cannot record into files like the current file. To record. create a new document
