Hello, my friend recently got a new computer and ever since he got it he has been getting an annoying problem with recording audio. His old computer was about 4 years old and had Realtek AC,97. But now his new computer will not work on anything other than Realtek High Definition Drivers. He really hates it because he cannot record audio anymore or use his microphone. Let me explain what is happening for him, He downloaded fraps and got into Half-Life 1 to see if everything was working, sadly it was not. Everything was very loud and distorted, something like this: . But a little less loud...He was able to fix it but now all he gets is an annoying muffled audio track every time he records. He messed around with settings for about 2 weeks, He has also tried it with both Fraps and xFire with same results. It's not the programs its his drivers or audio settings. He has tried to uninstall the HD drivers and install AC,97, but his computer refuses to accept that. He is very tired of it and desperate for help. Here are his audio settings:
His computer specs are (If they really matter):
Os: windows Xp Home edition Cpu: Amd Athlon 7850 Dual core processor 2.80 GHZ, 3.25 GB of RAM (He actually has 6, hopefully nothing is corrupt) Motherboard: Jetway Video card: Ati Radeon 4850
