Disable noise cancallation for Windows 7?

by Syrinx77 / September 29, 2012 8:28 AM PDT

Trying to make a recording, but the playback sounds muffled, garbly & sort of "underwater". Even when increasing the internal mic record volume.
Last time I had this problem, I was using Win XP & disabled it.
No idea how to solve it with Win 7.
Can anyone walk me through this?

Disable noise cancellation in Windows 7
by Manpreet_C Dell staff / September 30, 2012 12:34 AM PDT


Here is a link on how to disable noise cancellation using Audio enhancements. These settings may vary depending upon the sound card installed on your computer.
You can also adjust the settings in Recording Properties. To do so, go to Start>> type 'mmsys.cpl' without quotes in the search box >>Click on 'Recording' tab>> select the Microphone>> click 'Properties' >> click 'Levels'>> adjust the slider bar on 'Microphone Boost'; reduce it to the minimum and move the slider bar for microphone volume to the maximum.
You may also find 'Microphone Boost' in 'Custom' Tab; ensure that the box is not ticked. Refer to the image: Image.

Hope this helps.
Please reply if you have any further questions.

Thanks and Regards,

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?
