Audio/Mic Jack issues

Postby DistanceDecay » Sun Oct 19, 2014 6:37 pm

Okay, ever since I built this machine a year ago, I've had issues with the audio and mic jacks. I managed to come to some sort of delicate balance where both jacks on the front worked fine.

Then I moved and that balance was broken and I've been having issues ever since. The audio jack in the front seems to be broken. Only some very faint sound comes through. The mic jack in the front is more or less ok other than having to unplug and replug it in periodically.

The audio jack on the back of the computer is fine. The mic jack on the back seems to just not pick up much of any sound without putting the mic and mic boost levels at 100 and 30 db respectively.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Use a USB mic?

Wireless headset and mic? Total immersion and total freedom as well, haven't looked back since I got mine. Just runs off a USB transmitter/receiver and another to charge the headset battery.

Are you sure the jack is broken and not the headset?

check the motherboard grounding. the backplate might have a short or the i.o ports are not touching in the correct areas. had that issue in the beginning. worst case scenario its a bad mobo. best case the grounding is messed up in those areas.
