Hello everyone.
i own an msi gt70 2pc laptop, running win 10. I've never had this problem before but for some time now whenever i try to use skype or raidcall or anything like that my voice is not being picked up properly. I've used different setups: both using my internal microphone and external headsets even professional microphones but my voice is really really low, almost non existent. I have tried downloading, installing, reinstalling audio drivers even sound blaster cinema and realtek audio manager but nothing worked no matter what the configuration is.I have gone into the "set up a microphone" options built into windows but the software won't even pick up my voice enough to be able to set one up.
no matter what software i use my voice is either no being picked up at all or when it is, it's so low that it just blends in with the background noise.

does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this?

My initial thoughts are first, check the current default playback device. Go to Recording tab and highlight the current device - click  Properties - look for Listen - Levels - Effects and Advanced tabs. In Listen tab, see playback through device. Levels - Microphone Array/Boost, etc...
