Hi all, im new here and i got a small problem.

My soundcard is being really weird lately...as:

I cant record anything via microphone - Nothing gets picked up but the sound from my computer which seems to be static and an unstable signal. Im getting really frustrated because i want to record something and i cant. Also i cant talk to my friends in world of warcraft due to this.

i already verified that its not my microphone, its my soundcard for sure. its only 1 year old and i cant figure out why this is doing this... I can hear sound just fine, recording it wont work though! :thumbsup:


If anyone can help me please do so!

If its easier to instant message me, my AIM name is Captainstarbucs. Im almost on all time time... if im not leave a message and ill get back asap.

Did it work before and now it's not, or is this the first you have tried it?

Is everything showing up as OK in the device manager?

What version of Windows are you using?

Are you trying the microphone jack on the front of your computer? If so, try using the jack on the back and see if you get better results.

How did you confirm that it is not the microphone?

I had an Soundblaster Audigy 4 that did the same thing a while back...don't remember exactly what I did to fix it but installing new drivers might not be a bad idea.
