    Windows Muting All Voice Chat Programs


    Greetings everyone!
    Windows noob here. I recently built a very nice computer to use for streaming on twitch. I have everything working great except one issue. All my in game voice chats and even 3rd party programs (discord) will eventually mute or disconnect? I'm not sure which. It works for a few minutes sometimes longer sometimes shorter then its just gone. My in game sounds and music never stop however it's just the chat. The only way to get it back is to manually leave whatever channel I am in (on discord or in games like overwatch) then reconnect to the channel. Then it will work for another few minutes. It makes playing games very difficult. I have tried reformatting and reinstalling fresh windows with no luck. Please help! I am using a usb connected headset (astro A40 with mix amp) but also had the (Astro A50's) and same issue.
    thanks a ton

    If haven't then install latest version of your computer audio driver. You can found the latest version of the audio driver from your computer manufacturer website and from audio card manufacturer website.
