Well, those of you that I regularly chat with on vent know i have horrible luck with headsets. Well today, COMPLETELY RANDOMLY, my newer headset died on me. I'm incredibly pissed, obviously. It detects the headset fine, but I have no sound coming out of it. It doesnt appear to be picking up my voice either. I hate to game without a headset, so I'm outta commission for a while. Unless someone has some suggestions on how to fix this thing, which I'll gladly take any advice short of applying a hammer to it, the thing seems fried and I guess I'm going for another new one...I feel like punching a kitten >_>

Sorry to hear about your headset, as finding a good one that works properly is really hard, I wish you good luck with that. But as to your kitten problem, you're thinking too small, my friend. Watch this.*goes to the pound, grabs a bunch of kittens, straps each one to an airstike missle...presses launch* FLYING, FLAMING KITTENS OF DOOM!!!

Well, I have a habit of running over the headset wires with my chair and they often get tangled in it, but thats never caused serious damage(except for that one time it was wrapped around the arm of the chair, my mom knocked on the door which spooked me. I tried to get up and ended up yanking the wire clear out of the jack -_-). This one was fairly knew. The company is Altec Lansing. Since I cant see any external damage, and I have a decent idea how to open it, I'm gonna try opening it up and seeing if anything got disconnected on the inside.

..And for death's sake(puts a kitten in a rocket launcher and fires it into the stratosphere)

Well, double post cause I got decent news. Couldnt get a new headset on sunday, so its off for another week. Good news is that, I plugged my rock band guitar into the computer, then plugged the headset into the guitar. And it worked. The sound quality is horrible, but at least I have sound. I'll try to get on vent tomorrow to see how it goes.
