Skype calls mute all my other audio help please

[ Edited ]

Hi 

 

I was wondering if you knew how to fix the problem, When ever I make/receive Skype calls it mute all my other audio on my computer.

( for example: Videos, Music, Games )

 

 

I did Go to Control Panel > Sound > Communications.  Mute all other sounds is not marked

 

unchecked where it says Allow application to take exclusive control of this device

 

and none of them work some help please?

Right down corner of your screen you should see A volume sign.

Right click it.

Click on sounds.

A window should open.

Look the top and Click on communication.

Last step Click don't take any actions.

DONE!

I have the same problem, but more serious! Whenever I start a call, ALL sounds INCLUDING Skype disappears. That means that Skype mute not only all other sounds, but itself too.. Whenever I receive a call, I can hear the calling sound, but as soon as I answer the sound disappears completely. I used Skype yesterday and had no problems with it, but now I don't know what to do..

In Skype go to Tools -> Options -> Audio settings. What device do you see selected there for your Speakers? Is there more than one option available in the selection box? Can you hear any sound when you press the test button next to this box?
