    my headphone is connected to front side and I also have speaker connected to rear side of my pc.

    dont know what other information i need to put in and thnx in advance

  • Can you test the same mic on different system and check if sound is fine?

  • ok so i did test on the other computer and it works fine. the system was win 7 with realtek.

    so.... on the sound option it shows the bar for the how loud my mic is and on  my win 8.1 pc it shows 0~1 maybe 2 bars.  on the other one win 7shows half way to max.

    oh and the reason i got my volume up a bit (getting it to 1~2bar) was using realket option and maxed microphone boost. other wise I cant even hear (record) myself on the apps and stuff
