I just installed a new mobo with my windows 7, and the sound mic volume is so low. with everything turned up i need to scream to even kind of hear myself on playback. I read this was an issue with windows 7 so what is the fix?
Mobo is ASrock 970 Extreme 3 and Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
Hmmm, you could try hooking up the front panel via the AC97 connector instead of the HD Audio (or vice versa) then plug in the mic to the front panel connector. (I think you might need to get AC'97 drivers before it will detect the mic though )
