hya wonder if there are any audio geeks out there. for some unknown reason my audio is really crap. i am using realtek AC97. can anyone help me get it working ok as i am always being told there is a hummmmmmmmmm over the top of me which is louder than my audio or i am too low in volume. i have adjusted my volumes as much as i can but to no avail.
Hi pete h. I don't know about chat, but buzz is often caused by bad earthing of the microphone cable, see if you can try a different microphone. The reason I queried the age of the computer and whether the sound is onboard is that earlier implementations of onboard sound were notoriously poor quality and often picked up noises from other motherboard components. I suspect the microphone connector. Try recording a short clip of sound from your microphone -- Start - All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder.
