Question about PC Chips PCChips A13G+ v3.0 Motherboard - NVIDIA GeForce 6100, Socket AM2, MicroATX, Audio, Video, PCI Expres
I recently purchased the above motherboard (realtek HD alc880 sound) and the microphone sensitivity is extremely low, even when the volume is completely up, its not a microphone issue, it works with other systems. this motherboard has been one headache after another... are there any tricks to get the mic to function correctly (its also quite staticky) I've tried running the miccal.exe program to no avail...
You may not have a choice. The jack could be loose or have a bad solder joint. If the microphone is "staticky" on this system but not on another, then increasing the volume will only increase the static.
You can try a condenser microphone. Condensers require their own power (battery) and output a MUCH higher signal. High enough for the Line-In jack.
If you are using the microphone for voice chat or internet phone or gaming or similar, I STRONGLY suggest a USB headset, such as you can get from Logitech. You wouldn't believe the quality difference.
