Hello everyone. I'm having a huge amount of trouble with my microphone currently, and it's occurring with multiple microphones so I'm guessing it's hardware/software related.

My motherboard is an Asrock Fatal1ty 787, I tell you this as I just built this new computer. It's running Win 7 64 bit home premium.

Essentially my microphone (high quality studio recording mic) is incredibly sensitive. I cannot alter or lower the volume of the microphone at all past a certain point. Even setting the volume to 0 does nothing. It picks up everything and it makes it impossible for me to record music. I've never encountered this problem in the past with this particular microphone on different systems, and I even bought a brand new microphone thinking it was just old age of my old mic. Same problem.

I will provide any information required to help fix this problem, but please I have no where else to turn right now and I find myself unable to do what I love which is record music. Thanks!

Are you using the front panel mic input or the motherboard input? If you're using front panel, just switch to the motherboard input and it should solve the problem.

If you're already using the motherboard input, check you have the latest drivers. Otherwise I'm really not too sure.

It's a USB microphone. Sorry I thought I'd specified in the original post.
