Please check the side panel where you have to speaker output, does it have a microphone output as well or its a single audio port out you have on it?

you need to connect the mic to the mic port otherwise it will pick the internal computer mic till the mic port is not connected that is why you are getting backgound sound in your recording.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
