Hey everyone,

I'm having a very odd problem with recording. Before I explain I'll give some details...

Computer Model: Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5200
Recording Program: Audacity
Recording Device: Tried using both internal and an external microphone
Running Windows 7
-Also, I figured it might be worth mentioning that this computer is about 2 months old and that this has been occuring since the first time I tried recording.

Is this problem exclusive to Audacity? No, I have determined this by recording video with my toshiba using the default webcam/webcam program. The same thing occured.

The Problem:
When recording in audacity, the audio levels are normal for approximately 10 seconds until the levels instantaniously drop off to about less than half of what they were before. I took a screenshot of what is going. If anyone is interested in seeing it, I can try to post it up here, but unfortunately I am having difficulties because I am not seeing an attachment feature. Haha, I tried uploading it to wordpress.com and attaching the link that way but that didn't work.

Oh, and I have tried reinstalling the audio drivers. Unfortunately, this did nothing.

Thanks a lot,


(Moderator edit: added topic description. jgw)
