Stargirl, Please post a little more information. What program are you using to capture and what are your computer specs? What external audio card? Does that card work in both 16 and 24 bit or it is it fixed? What program are you using to play back the recording?

 

If you go into dxdiag( Windows>Start>Run>dxdiag>OK) what does it say about your sound device? Sometimes capturing video will result in bad playback of the audio. I know you are doing audio only so I do not know if this will help but you might try turning down the hardware acceleration while you are in dxdiag. Try again.

Hoping that someone will post a better answer, my guess FWIW...

 

After making sure that all drivers are latest versions, I'd try to narrow it down starting with Windows built-in recorder program using the line in for your PC's built-in sound chip. Then if that works try you external sound card device and so on, until the problem shows up. If you get problems right off, then you might want to Google searching for your audio problems based on your PC's basic hardware... There have been many cases over the years where the mainboard & drivers were the cause.
