  1. Hey guys, just encountered another problem. Last day, I bought a Logitech Microphone (quite an old model, not sure whether it supports Win7). I plugged it in and it seemed to hardly register anything, only when I put my mouth very close to the mic. I have already googled the problem and tried the following solutions (without success, of course): - Turning on the mic volume to max, mic boost to max (+30 dB). This seemed to help a little, still have to hold my mic rather close though. - Updating drivers through Gigabyte website (I have a Gigabyte Z77x-UD3H) and VIA website. - Disabling all other microphone devices. - Changing various settings through the '' Properties " from my mic. - Connecting my mic with my keyboard (it has a headphone and mic input). Result was same though. - Connecting my mic with both front and back input. - Returned the mic to the store and got a new one, no difference at all. A lot of people seemed to have the same problem as I have and I have had no succesful solutions as of now (of course). My webcam mic works fine. These are my PC specs if needed: CPU: Intel i5-3570k Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77x-UD3H Graphic card: MSI GTX 660 Ti Memory: Corsair vengeance 8gb - 1600 mhz OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  2. That's really cool, I think I read about it too now you mentioned it. I'm on vacation right now , I'll be calling them in about a week or so. I'll be sure to keep you updated :D
  3. Ah wow, I feel quite stupid for not looking on their site. I'll check it out, thanks :)
  4. Hey guys, I made a horrible mistake. I put my side panel on an unfortunate place, it fell and got scratched. I'm quite sad about this since it's only a month old. I thought about replacing it, but I can't find a site to buy a replacement window. I also thought about fixing the scratch, but it required a polishing machine.. which I don't have. Does anyone here know a site or maybe an easier solution to fixing it?
  5. Well, I did a fulll wipe on my SSD and reinstalled windows, so I guess I pretty much ruled out the driver issue and I'm planning to call Asus today.
  6. I'm gonna check if I can borrow a graphic card from a friend. And I thought about buying the EVGA as well. Though the Asus was more quiet and looked bad ass. EDIT: Just tried to boot windows with a HD6850.. booted perfectly. Guess it's definitely my card.
  7. Other than the core components, I have 3 fans and a dvd drive. And yes already tried switching the video cable from the gpu to the motherboard before and it does work (it's how I managed to install all drivers etc). Also, when I plugged it in the PCI-E 3.0 lane, windows did boot but with lowest resolution and couldn't set it higher, Nvidia didn't detect any card either. Unfortunately, I don't have any other cards to test :/ And to remind you how this all started: I was playing GRID, PC suddenly crashed and windows didn't boot anymore. Should I try booting without the dvd drive and fans or does this seem pretty much useless?
  8. Installed driver from Nvidia website.. still same issue :/ I guess it really is a hardware problem then?
  9. I have the ASUS GTX670 DC2 .. installed the driver from the CD, I'm going to try to download the driver from the ASUS website and see what happens.
  10. Okay guys, I reinstalled windows all over again.. the problem still remained. I did find the exact problem though. First windows booted just fine without any drivers. Though after I installed my graphic card driver, the problem came back again. I changed settings in the BIOS to put the motherboard gpu into first priority and boom.. windows booted again. I'm assuming this is really a hardware problem and that I'll have to send my graphic card back right? Or is there any way to fix this?
