First off, here is my computer MOBO specs. Model - BIOSTAR TForce TF570SLI Audio Chipset - Realtek ALC888 Audio Channels - 8 Channels http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16813138059 there is the newegg page it is on. Anyway, i downloaded the latest drivers from Realtek's site. Updated my BIOS and plugged the mic into the rear pink slot. Which worked on all past computers. But not this one. I go into ventrilo to test out my mic and all i get is blank sounds, backround white noise type stuff. So it produces a noise which tells me that the mic is functional. Before I even got it to work, although my yell came out as a whisper. So i changed that and now cant remember how to get back that far lol. Anyone have any ideas? Feel free to ask me any questions, ill be on for another hour.
