What type of microphones? USB? Analog (3.5mm stereo plugs)? If its Analog and the PC is a desktop, try the rear mic jack (Pink).

I have a recording studio and the crackling sounds like a bad mic cord or jack.

Also, please post specs for the PC with the problem. Helps us to try and help you.

That says the correct sound driver is not installed. Whether that makes a difference or not, the first step is to install the correct sound driver. You system specs do not include enough data to determine what sound hardware you have. The motherboard vendor/model would help. (I have the same i7 3770 CPU in my system).
