This is a serious issue, as I can not communicate with anybody using my desktop computer. I am not a tech-y person, I do not know my way around these things. My issue is: the Windows 10 software will only pick up very small parts of the audio going through a microphone, and I must be extremely loud to even get that minuscule amount through. I've tried the following things:
- Getting a new computer: this started on my old computer, so I purchased a new PC (it is a Dell) and the problem persisted into the new computer. It's not a hardware issue.
- New microphones: I've tried multiple microphones, including headsets that directly plug into the front jack. None of them will work, they all do the same thing where little audio is being picked up. Not an issue with the microphones...
- Changing levels: It is not muted, nor is the boost to low. i've tried all these things and it just makes me quiet, with more static. The mic level is all the way up.
