So, I'm using Discord to voice chat while playing video games with my friends. For some reason, which I can't discover, all of my computer noises - youtube, discord, my games, etc, are being sent through my mic. I'm utilizing a four-wire headset with a splitter to traditional red-green connections on my tower.


I have already gone in to my mic settings and verified that my mic isn't marked with "listen to this device", though since that setting is supposed to do the opposite (let me listen to my own mic), and tests have concluded that it works the way it's supposed to, I'm not surprised that this was already off. I've gone in to the advanced settings for my mic and my headset and verified that both have their exclusive modes active but, again, since I know what those are supposed to do, I remain unsuprised that turning them off and on makes no difference. The headset works normally on a laptop, though the laptop has a four-wire connector rather than the traditional split set up.


Any help would be appreciated, because it's starting to piss me right off.
