I had that issue.

This is why I moved to using a microphone with the USB interface. It sidesteps all the problems you see in integrated audion modems and more.

While you proved the mic is fine on other machines, this machine has some less than happy audio card. I wonder if you were hoping to avoid fixing the machine? All I can offer is how I fix this. I use the newer USB microphone since it avoids having to fix the hardware.

taking the mic off the table and moving it away from the speakers.
i guess it was the vibration of the table or something lol

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
