    It seems that my headset microphone is catching both my voice and my audio output, so people hear both me and whatever I hear from my PC (clearly).

    I'm using the ASRock P55M Pro motherboard, that comes with the 7.1 CH HD Audio (VIA® VT1708S Audio Codec) audio. Using Windows 7.

    My stereo mix is turned off, so that's not the problem. Using VIA HD Audio Deck drivers, these are my settings:

    (I'm listening to music atm and not talking and you can see the microphone sound level going up and down)

    I also tried with 3 different headsets and the problem is the same with all 3. Also tried reinstalling the audio drivers. I'm sure it's not catching the feedback from earpieces, as I even tried muting those with the volume wheel on cable and it still captured the sound.

    Tried googling and trying a bunch of things, but nothing helped. Any idea how I could go about fixing this?

    Thanks

    there are two microphone controls one for record as shown in your setting and one in playback check that the one in playback mute is active.

    Hi,

    the only active control in playback tab is "Speakers" and if you look at the levels of it, the microphone is muted.

    only other setting i can think of is advance settings can't tell you where it is in the audio options. "when the head phones are connected the internal speakers should mute automatically."

    That didn't help either. Anyone got any other idea?
