I have 2 audio jacks at the front of my computer, 1 for headphones and another for a mic when i plug the headphones one in i can hear a small 'fuzzing' noise and no understandable audio will come through if i swap them around then no noise will come through my mic. So i decided to try the back 3 audio jacks a red,green and blue one they all work fine with my headphones but only one even has the option for microphone when i plug it in (the red one) and my mic is then very quiet and needs at least 10 on the mic boost (with 100 volume) for my friends to hear me, but that mic boost causes a static-like noise to come through my headphones and makes it very difficult for my friends to understand me. I'm stuck someone please help me :'(

Hi Ben04


Can you post what make and model is your PC?

Also what operating system you are running?

What program are you using to chat with?

is there a volume control on the headphones? Do the headphones have one connector or two?


And any other information about it that may help.


The audio jacks in the back red - mic. blue -line . green - headphone/speakers

The audio jack in front may be needed to be adjusted on the sound driver.
