Need some help, is my soundcard broken? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Thread Starter 
Ok, i installed the latest drivers..i think. Since skype is offline i'll test it later. Anyone have any ideas what cam cause this?

There is only three options

1. Hardware - Youve tried your mic and headset on a different computer, so youve pretty much ruled out your headset as the culprit, could still be the integrated audio though.

2.Software - There could be something conflicting with your sound device, or the programs your trying to use with it. Have you tried just using the generic "sound recorder" in windows to see if it picks anything up?

3.Settings - Whether it be in game, in the windows control panel, or just a muted mic, im pretty sure you have this covered, but it wouldnt hurt to double check.

Apparently skype is supposed to be back on track.

Well , i guess i'll call the company that made my computer tomorrow and ask them if i can send it in. Im guessing the motherboard took some kind of damage or is defect in some way. If anyone has any more suggestions please post them!

Microphone
VIA High Definition Audio
Default Unit

CD sound
VIA HD Audio
Ready

Line(i wasnt sure how to translate this)
VIA HD Audio
Not Connected

Stereo Mix
VIA HD Audio
Ready

when you go to control panel > hardware & sound > sound > recording > make sure the microphone is selected and tap on it with your finger or talk you should see the little green bars going up with the input.

If not I would recommend uninstalling/re-installing your onboard sound drivers.

Are you connecting your mic to the front panel header, or the rear of the motherboard? If you havent tried both yet, give that a shot.

Another thing you could try is uninstalling the audio drivers, and either letting windows auto-install them, or revert to the drivers from the motherboard drivers disc that came with your motherboard.

How do i make windows autoinstall them? i installed them manually(although i found out i actually was using the latest drivers).

One thing i find strange is that i can hear the mic if i touch it while im wearing the headphones - that noise that mic's produce...this means it has got to do with drivers or something, although im 100% sure i've got the latest ones.

The latest drivers might be bugged, which is why I suggested using the ones on the disk.

Your headset isnt usb is it?
