    I don't have a proper fix for this, but, assuming that it's not a hardware problem, then you might have someluck trying alternatives, like mumble, for example.

    http://mumble.sourceforge.net/Main_Page

    It's a native qt4 application, so you don't need wine to run it.

    The problem is that ventrilo is the "norm" for gamers using voice chat while gaming and it has an extremely large market hold and a high amount of companies selling servers for it, so its not as easy to just switch to something native like mumble or teamspeak, i've had mixed results with ventrilo, for a while the way i sounded seemed to change daily

    I see.

    I really know very little about voip stuff, I don't know if there's a way to use both in conjunction or if mumble can work with any kind of voip server or requires a murmur server forcingly.
