It is a USB microphone. When talking, people say they can only hear me through their left ear. If I talk loudly, it will give off major feedback. I can confirm this because I clicked the "listen to this device" box. I'm using a Blue Yeti Microphone and when I plug it into another computer, it works just fine. At first, it sounded like the drivers were messing it up. After reinstalling drivers and looking for new ones, I did not get any results. I've tried replugging in connectors for the audio on my motherboard after dusting them off. Other microphones however, will work normally when I plug them in through the USB. The microphone's gain isn't all that high nor is the volume in my recording devices. I tried starting windows on another one of my hard drives and tested it on that one as well. Same issue. I have no idea what the problem is. I have replaced the USB cable to the computer and microphone. Still static-y. I don't know what else to do. This is stressful.
