    Hi guys

    Recently built a gaming pc, I've had it for for about a month and so far so good other than I can't use a mic.

    Speakers work etc

    I've tested two known working mics and both exactly the same

    If I test it I can see the bar moving to show a input but when I play the recording back my voice is just static, and it's t not static all the time just as I speak

    I've played with settings
    Updated drivers (keep seeing mentions of realtek but that's not on my driver list?)
    Set as default

    Ive had a suggestion to update bios but would rather not tbh, hopefully its something else

    Any suggestions
