Asus Z170 Pro Gaming Motherboard Drivers Download Install Update
I tried with different headsets, to both front and rear panels, result is the same. I also tried these headsets with my mac and windows laptops to make sure headsets aren't the problem and they work perfectly. I also tried latest drivers from; realtek website latest and some old , asus dvd that came in the box, asus website.
As far as i understand from some googling, people had similar issues with other ASUS motherboards as well. So I would like to know if anyone have had the same issue with this motherboard?
Did you have the lates BIOS? Did you download audio driver at the Asus website? Realtek drivers make pretty much no difference as well. I have Windows 10 and I am considering rolling back to 7 or 8 point something but not sure if that will fix the problem. My computer setup is new and I have only used win 10 with it so far. What I'm interested is in people's experience with z Pro Gaming on-board sound card's recording performance is it a problem in my motherboard is it a maybe software problem or its recording capabilities are just bad.
I have the same problem with latest bios aswell. My voice is really low and the static high. Here is the sound that im getting http: Are you using the front panel audio ports from your case or the ones at the back from the motherboard to plug in your headphones?
Both have the same problem, i tried unpluging the front panel and it didnt help. Apparently this is a fairly common problem with many ASUS boards.
Also apparent is that there is no "one fix to rule them all". Any USB headset will do. The good ones like mine will have surround sound and equalizers just like regular headsets so you aren't missing anything other than the static and popping and other problems, of course.
I suggest doing that rather than pulling your hair out searching for a fix that may or may not exist. I had this problem or these symptoms, at least. Sadly, Asus support was useless and it took me a while to figure out. Test your front panel headphone jack and check if you're getting good quality of sound. If the sound you're getting is distorted then you've got the exact same problem I had. I think it was, ground cable If I remember correctly of the HD audio connection got damaged or torn off somewhere.
Another test, get line in cable to connect your phone audio output to your mic input and connect the phone to mic port. Play some music with stereo sound and record with windows sound recorder. If the sound is good, but you're missing 1 channel it points to exact same problem. If you suspect you have the same problem open up your pc and double check if all the small cables for the HD audio connector are connected. Pull them a little without applying any force, if it's lose it will come out if not you'll feel the resistance 1 by 1 and 1 of them will probably come out if it's not already out.
If you found the broken cable, either file a warranty claim for your case or the front panel if it doesn't come with the case or look up "HD audio connector colors" and solder it where it belongs. That's nice and all, but your problem has nothing to do with our problem. It's not a bad cable, since it happens on both the back and front audio ports and the clicking is when the audio channels are opened and closed. The mic noise is happening with all mics. Oh that, my bad. I read the the first post, but the "rear" part somehow slipped through my eyes.
Anyways, when looking for a solution to my problem I've also seen people dealing with yours. You miss out on the software, but a lot of people reported that to cure the "clicking". I've also seen people RMA the motherboard in 2 cases where the solution above didn't help and that actually fixed the problem for them. Ye, I am not in the mood for stereo sound when I paid a premium price to get the motherboard with the best onboard sound 'in the world'.
I know how you feel I used to love Asus devices, but now that I've got non-autonomous pieces none of which were on the cheap range by the way I'm seeing flaws come out 1 after another.
Anyways at least see if drivers windows downloads eliminate the issue. Bought a usb sound card for 1 dollar on ebay in which i just plug the mic.
But after this im done with asus.
