    I'm having a problem chatting in game, I've asked a few people for help but they all ended up as clueless as I am. I even tried the legendary google but still no answers D:

    Here's what happened: I was in game using my mic as I usually would when my steam chat disconnects (while still ingame), when it reconnects I couldn't talk in game whatsoever. Now when I launch css steam continues to disconnect me every now and then, maybe 1-3 times in a row. I also have a slightly different problem with another game, amnesia. It just closes completely after around 5-15 minutes. (I think steam games hate me)

    Here's what I tried: I restarted my computer, when that didn't work I reinstalled steam, when that didn't work I noticed the time and date on my pc was completely out of wack. I had to synchronize it with an internet time server. Someone told me that could have effected it so after that I restarted my pc, re downloaded steam and all of my games buuuuuut it hasn't made a difference. I've already tried the obvious solutions such as making sure my voice communication keys are correct, making sure I had the right recording input device in, and I even tested the microphone via steam settings and ingame settings, they seem to work but when I press the button down to talk the mic icon appears although no one can hear me or see my name flash up. (tested it with my brother, I also tested this on a different server)

    It's not that big of a deal but it's pretty frustrating lol, does anyone know what I'm doing wrong or how to fix it? or has this happened to anyone of you? I need a little help :frown:

    Try re-installing the game.

    Re-install the game? How can you do that?
    I think you'll have to pay again if you uninstall...

    Delete the game folder and reinstall it through Steam. You can save the saved games folder so you don't lose progress.

    Woah, facepalm.

    Anyway are you sure its your computer? It could easily be your microphone. How old is it?

    Hm. Thanks. :thumbsup: Didn't know that.

    My microphone works fine with everything else, and it works when I test the microphone with the ingame and steam settings, just doesn't go through when I actually try in game. (bought it a few months ago)
    @ Seraphine, I've tried that as well after I made sure all the obvious faults were fixed like the time synchronizing but the problem with the mic is still the same, I don't disconnect anymore though which is something good...THERE'S HOPE. nah i'm screwed.

    Do a virus scan. No joke. I don't know if this is related or not

    But when the steam forums got hacked I was playing oblivion and then went to go make lunch. My virus scan auto-launched

    And finished scanning while I was preparing my food. When I came back left4dead and another of my games came up as a Trojan.

    Might be a virus blocking your permissions in CS.

    Again I'm not sure if this is at all related but I just wanted to put this out here, in case it helps.
