Yes, try a USB mic if you have one available.
I do some audio work as a hobby. Not sure if I can help, but I can try.

I have a new motherboard and all on a computer that was near a big
lightning strike last April. I tried recording some stuff just a bit ago
using a Logitech stereo (I think) mike that plugs into the sound card.
I've used Sound Recorder, LP Recorder, and Audacity, all to the same
result - the resulting WAV file plays back and the speaking is too fast
and has some distortion - I assume some of the digital information has
The mobo is an ECS GF6100-M754 with an AMD Athlon 64 3200+
Not using onboard sound - I think because I wanted a MIDI port. Not sure
now - I think the card is a Diamond Xtreme XS51
I do have Sophos antivirus on the desktop - saw that sometimes an AV can
cause this - have the same AV on a thinkpad - no problem there.
Someone here said there is some kind of (clock) fix for Athlon 64 bit
CPUs and XP - but I could not find it.
So I will appreciate help on this - I might take the sound card off and
try the on-board sound.
I also have a Xitel INport - very cool - converts from 1/4 inch RCA to
USB through an opto-isolated AD converter - very clean. I could hook a
keyboard mixer output to that and see if it works - that bypasses the
sound card completely.
Might try a USB microphone, as well.
