    Microphone issue not solved with latest driver update


    My microphone is giving really fuzzy audio with multiple microphones tried. It's a Realtek audio card, but updating to the latest driver (August 2017) didn't fix it. I've also tried disabling all sound effects, uninstalling the drivers and installing the latest, numerous reboots, but nothing I've found so far has fixed the problem. I really need my microphone to work, and any help is appreciated.

    Have you tried both the front panel mic jack and the rear motherboard I/O panel mic jack? If not try the rear jack.

    Yeah, it's in the rear I/O panel. That's the only place I have for audio.

    Is this using a specific application or any application? Just trying to get a baseline on the problem.

    I use a lot of audio as I have a recording studio.

    No, it's not specific.

    Is it a low volume level distortion or is it a high volume level distortion? There is a volume level setting for the mic.
    What type/brand of mic?

    Also, in case its something else causing the problem, download and run the free Resplendence Latency Mon program and see what that reports.

    Distortion happens at all volume levels. The program recommended updating my BIOS.

    Did the Latency Mon program say you can run audio without problems or did it flag it as having problems? The BIOS most likely is not this specific problem.

    No, it said it has problems. It recommended disabling CPU throttling, and updating the BIOS. CPU throttling was never enabled, though.

    Look at the other panels in Latency Mon as that may lead you to the one(s) that are causing the problems.
