Skype sounds come through my headset but all other audio is coming through my laptop speakers??

Novel Tourist

I have just purchased a HP Pavillion - Windows 7 (had a Dell Prior) and have not had any problems with skype until now. All my skype sounds are coming through my headset but all my other audio is coming through my laptop speakers.For example: All other times before now, I could watch a movie while talking on skype and hearing the video both through my headset, unfortnuately now if I try and do so, my skype call comes through my headset and my movie comes through my main pc speakers.This occurs with all other audio, gaming and movie sounds while connected to skype.When I am not connected to skype all audios  come through my headset.  Please help..I want to have both skype calls  and all other audios through my headset again. Any suggestions will help.Thank you.

Hey I've been having the same problem. I have the Pavillion DV6 and also Windows 7. For me it happened shortly after having installed a shed load of Windows updates and also having just installed the Microsoft Accesories software that I use to connect my wireless Xbox 360 controller to my laptop. Did you do either of the above before your skype started playing up?

For anyone who didn't click the link, just go on Options, and then Headphone Options and then for the Volume/Speakers choose Headphones + Speakers both

set your Windows default playback device to be the headset while playing games -- your issue is not a Skype issue
