I really hope that this is just a stupidly easy problem that I can't fix, but I can't get my microphone to work. When I go to the Control Panel to test the hardware (as has been suggested to me), I get the following error messages:
"An error occurred during DirectPlay Voice setup. The error code is 0x80004005."
"Windows cannot execute DpvSetup.exe, use Add/Remove Programs control panel to install."
Try the registry edits there and also reinstall the latest DirectX.
Done. Still not working. Additionally, I can't get the registry edits to stick. I change the values, and I close the registry, and I open the registry to make sure the values are still there, and they're not.
We just got Hughes Net at the house and they cap your daily use. The installer said there was a program on usenet that you could download that would download your selected files during "free time", which is 2am-7am.
