I just bought a Sennheiser e835 mic, and it's not giving expected gain on my desktop, while it's working fine on my laptop.
The audio-in ports (1 back and 1 front panel) on the desktop are working fine, since my simple Zebronics chatting headset mic is very much giving the expected levels on the desktop. The performance of the Zebronics is identical on the laptop as well. The e835 is giving identical level of the Zebronics on the laptop, but on the desktop the level from the e835 is hardly 50%.
Is this because the desktop motherboard is not particularly supporting the Sennheiser mic? That seems to be the only explanation, but I can't find enough info on this. If anyone could help, I'd be grateful. The desktop MB is Intel Original GCNL945 (core2duo). Currently using onboard sound. Should I install a separate sound card - would that help? Any suggestions?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
