I have going to say to find the latest version of your Sound Card driver, but this doesn't seem a viable option unless you contact your computer manufacturer, according to the support site for your Sound Card.

Are you recording both sound and video or just sound?

Okay, and I wanted to see the date of your drivers.

Are you just using Windows Sound Recorder? What hardware are you using to record the sound input?
I used the "Sound Recorder" that came with the computer ands also I tried a Roxio program. Both had the same results.

What did you use to record the sound input? Did you use a external microphone?

I'm using the "Sound Recorder" that came with the computer or the Roxio program I downloaded. Both do the same thing. I used the microphone input and a Galaxy Tab. I also tried my Zoom music recorder as a source....all go to the mic input.

You could try running this program:

SpritSailor: BlueRobot asked what was the input source of your recording. You repeated information already provided.

So what are you trying to record, how are your trying to record it. Is it line in, microphone or something else.

PCs are not stereo equipment and they don't do a good job with anything other than a microphone.

If you want someone to help, please answer questions they need to know to help trouble shoot the issue on your machine.

Sometimes I don't ask the right question or ask for more information. If your sound is garbled, it could be any number of things - hardware, driver, user error. no one here can divine an answer based on how you defined the issue.

Think about it. If you work on cars, and someone came to you and said "My car won't start"... well there's about a hundred questions that could be avoided if the person had said "My car won't start and the lights don't work either".

The point I'm trying to make is that if you provide as much information as possible, someone can moist likely resolve the issue fairly quickly. Or you and someone can ask lots of questions to get to a dead battery answer (as in the case of the car).

What would that do?
It will analyse Windows ability and the your drivers ability to play real-time audio, however, if could just be due to a poor quality recording in the first place.

I found the program within this thread:

If I record live or off of youtube or any source the end result is the same.

I did run that program and it said my system should be able to record anything.

You might have better luck with Audacity (better mixing controls) for line-in recording and use Real Downloader for stuff off the net (it allows you to download videos and rip sound from them)
