Hi guys,

Recently purchase logitech G330 headset.

Connect it with the USB soundcard to the pc. Test it with XP sound recorder. Record and playback seems fine. But then i try to do the "Test Hardware" under the sound&audio control panel. There is this annoying noise generated and it is looping non-stop + the noise volume keep increasing as long as the mic is active.

I switch to the normal 3.5mm jack, same problem. I test it in Steam game/windows test hardware - both give me the same annoying volume increasing. I switch back to my old headset to test, now the old headset is acting like the new headset.

Previously the old headset is wrking fine in both the in-game/test hardware environment. Both the old and new headset record and playback seems to work perfectly fine in the windows recorder though.

Please advise

Tricky. Could be a possible software/driver issue. You can test completely removing the Sound Card drivers and Software and then completely re-installing from scratch. Make sure to get the latest driver and software.
