I'm pretty sure it's not the games fault but I don't know where else to post this, so.
I got my new HP Pavilion g6 laptop, it's got Windows 7 in it. I'm new to Windows 7 and its systems, but I have been playing LOTRO for 2 years now and I know it's nothing inside the game or the game options. All the system sounds, Skype and other programs work well with my earphones but not LOTRO. been trying to adjust the weird sound settings for a while now and the last thing I want is to play LOTRO loud and upset my family.
The sound manager shows me "speakers and headphones" and used to show "communications headphones". As those are pretty usal little aircoustic earphones, I never imagined inserting them in the hole and listening to the wonderful sound of the game would cause so much trouble. I don't have a headset anyway and everything else that goes on in my new laptop seems to react to the "speakers and headphones" sliders when I listen to music or whatever. When playing without the earphones, everything is fine and the game goes as usual. There's also a slider for LOTRO under "mixer" but that doesn't change anything, exept for listening out loud.
Help? Thanks in advance!
