About a month ago the mic port went on my motherboard integrated sound card so last week I finally replaced it and I’m having some strange issues with it.
First tech specs.
Card: ASUS Xonar DG 5.1 channel PCI
OS: Win 7
Issues: I first noticed the problem is Diablo 3. Atmosphere sounds are normal but voices fade in and out and the book narrations can’t be heard at all. I checked all the in game sound controls and they were all normal. I tried turning voices up and all other sounds down but there was no effect other than lowering the atmosphere sounds.
I was watching a youtube video (Tabletop) and the music was normal volume but the voices were so low they couldn’t be understood.
Also the mic still doesn’t work which makes me think that the onboard sound wasn’t really the original issue.
I’ve looked for updated drivers, verified that it’s not just my headset that’s the issue (multiple mics, none work) verified that the new card is the one enabled and that the onboard card is disabled in the bios.
I’m at the end of my troubleshooting knowledge and google is no help.
Any suggestions? I’ll try almost anything short of shooting the PC.
