So I have an issue with my laptop currently. Whenever I am trying to talk to people with skype, it will lower my mic output volume proportionally as my speaker output gets louder. Say if sound isn't playing at all, I am extremely clear, while if sound is playing it is almost as if my voice is being cut out/garbled/distorted. It's to the point to where if my speaker is so loud, they say it sounds like my mic is muted and nothing is getting transmitted. Than when the loud sound stops it's back to extremely clear. Resulting in a lot people saying constantly your cutting out.
This happens with both a cheap turtle beach headset and using the built-in webcam mic. I have absolutely no idea what is happening and my friends say it's getting extremely frustrating to actually talk to while I'm playing a game, because they don't actually hear my speakers just the issue I'm describing.
I should also mention I'm running an Alienware M14x (blah, blah, Christmas present, and in college) specs below
