Mic picking up Desktop audio in Lenovo Legion 5 15IMH05

2021-10-18, 15:05 PM

I am having this issue in my lenovo legion 5 where the mic picks up the desktop audio resulting in people hearing my desktop audio through my mic in chatting apps like Discord. The issue also happens in OBS Studio when I try to record something with my mic while playing music in my headphones, the mic picks up the music in the final recording. I tried the following to fix the issue:

1. Updating the audio driver (Realtek).

2. Uninstalling and reinstalling the driver from Realtek's official website.

3. Uninstalling and reinstalling the driver from Lenovo's official website.

4. Uninstalling and then Updating it from Windows Update.

5. Installig the driver from Realtek and rolling back to an older version.

6. Disabling all input and output devices other than the one i am using.

7. Windows trouble shooting.

 

But Unfortunately nothing worked. Please help me fix this issue.

Hello @heheboi ,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

I would suggest trying to disable stereo mix from the sound menu.

This should stop the machine from playing audio through the microphone.

Hope this helps.
Regards,

Hey, do you find out how to fix this issue?

I have this same issue on my laptop. My Laptop is Legion 5-15ARH05H

After updating to Windows 11, this issue is getting worse.

 

I tried :

- Unchecked "Listen to this device" in audio properties.

- Update Realtek Driver

- Update BIOS

- Delete Realtek driver and installing the new one from Lenovo "Drivers & Software"

- Turn off Dolby Atmos for Gaming, and Disable every enchantment from Realtek Audio Console.

- Disable Stereo Mix in Sound Control Panel.

- Using USB SoundCard and plug my headset and earphone to the Soundcard.

- Reset Windows 11...

 

Nothing worked..

sorry for my bad english..
