Noisy sound card from Microphone input
Posted on 2006-11-15
Hi Hardware experts,
I have a problem with noise from the sound card Microphone input.
I have had the sound card for a couple of years but this is the first time I have tried to record anything. When I mute the Microphone on the Windows Volume Control, the noise goes away. When I unmute the Microphone the noise is there, regardless of whether a Microphone is plugged in or not. When I record, I can hear recorded audio but it is at a very low level compared to the noise.
I have also tried using the Line input. I do not get any noise from this input. However when I record and then play it back the sound is only on the left speaker.
I have upgraded drivers and this has not helped.
Any suggestions on how I can fix this problem. Or is it time for a new sound card?
Your advice is greatly appreciated.
