first try disabling all other recording devices, especially the built-in mic if you're using a laptop:

Disabling non-essential Audio Devices - Vista/Windows-7

Windows Control-Panel > Sound > Playback & Recording tabs > rt-click in the window and select "Show Disabled Devices" and "Show Disconnected Devices" > rt-click on all unused devices and select "disable"

check the properties for the mic device, look for any setting that might enable the mic to be always on:

start > control panel > sounds > recording tab > select device > properties

if you still have a problem then post the following plz:


Start > Run

Click the 'Save All' button
File is saved to the desktop as "DxDiag.txt"
Copy/paste the information (up to, and including, the [PS/2 Devices] section) to the forum. The information will have to be separated into multiple posts due to the maximum character limitation.
