Strange sound over mic

Hey everyone,

For the last couple of months the sound through my microphone when I speak has comes out distorted to the point that I sound like I am some old chain smoker. My voice sounds completely off. I have changed headsets and tried different sound settings but to no effect. In the past my microphone has worked just fine so I am not entirely sure what is going on. I am currently using on-board sound, nothing fancy and a 2.1 speaker setup with a sub.

Does anyone have any idea what the cause of this problem might be?

Would a new soundcard fix my problems?

Could someone recommend a cheap but effective card that allows comparable performance to my on-board sound?

  1. Probably an issue with your motherboard. The most obvious question is: have you updated your drivers? Especially those for your mobo's built-in audio?
