Having Problems with microphone while using RealTek Sound Driver

  1. I'm using a RealTek Driver and I'm having problems with my microphone. I'm using the microphone to talk with my friends through the Teamspeak RC2 Program. The problems are that when somebody talks, it'll echo back to the speaker, but I also can hear speaker's voice too.

    I've tried several stuff, but it didn't work, so I decided to ask for some help.If anyone have the solution, please let me know.

    Any further information you need, let me know.

    My Audio Driver Version: 5.10.0.5436

    Regards,
    pitche.

    It may be the mic - some have a switch on them to adjust the impedence and therefore the response.
    Best bet is to try a really cheap one that is designed for use with a PC.

    I've borrowed five different microphones from my friends and they all have the same problem.

    Have you tried the mic settings in Recording control?
    Open the sound properties boix and in options > properties select recording control - select microphone and then uncheck the microphone boost option.

    Yes, both with checking the microphone mute and unmute.

    If you mute the mic, it should stop altogether.
    If this fails to sort it, try finding a new driver for the sound card as this may have been compromised by a Windows update.

    Never mind, I had found the solution to the problem myself. However, I cannot explain it into words because I don't know what I did :p

    Thanks AlbertLionheart.
