  1. All USB devices stop working only after Windows boots


    Hello, and thanks in advance for checking this out.As the title states, all my USB devices stop working once Windows boots. My keyboard and mouse function before that, and I'm able to enter the Setup Menu, but as soon as it loads to the Windows login screen it all shuts off.In the past, I've had issues with all my USB devices shutting off momentarily, but now they refuse to come on at all. I have tried unplugging and replugging, different USB ports, as well as different hardware... all to no avail. This is frustrating, obviously, as my first PC that I otherwise love is just taking up space u

    Sennheiser GSP 350. Microphone stops working when I open any game

    Wow, ok. I think I've fixed it by accident while fiddling around.

    It appears to be the Realtek audio being the issue here. I don't use my onboard sound card as my headset is a USB headset only and my speakers are plugged into an ASUS sound card.

    Step by step fix:
    • I went into recording devices
    • I enabled STEREO MIX (Realtek High Definition Audio)
    • Then I set that Stereo Mix as the DEFAULT DEVICE (At this point it took over both input and output devices without my permission )
    • Then set my Sennheiser headset as default recording and playback devices in their respective windows even though they both still said they were the default devices when they weren't
    Headset microphone is currently functioning while in game now. I'll update the thread if it goes again. Should I completely disable Realtek audio??? Or will windows just force it to work again?

    1a. list disk
    2. select disk 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)

    xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\ (d being your vista cd and e being your usb stick)

    And that's it, boot off your usb disk
