Mic lags Gmod

Hi

Whenever im playing Gmod nowadays and i press x to talk to my fellow players, it spikes my entire game for a second and then continues to do so until my gmod session is over. The laptop im running is a Dell Vostro 3700 but i can assure you that it has NOTHING to do with my laptop because it has been able to run Gmod without problems for over 3 years now. If someone can explain why this started then i would appreciate it, and if you have a fix, i’d appreciate it evens more. It started yesterday just as i joined gmod after a restart and have restarted my pc, my router, steam, gmod, to no avail what-so-ever.

“over 3 years”

you do realize that the same hardware won’t run the same game that has had numerous updates in the exact same way?

either way

post actual specs using speccy and update all drivers

Disable all microphone enhancements in your microphone properties. This is a common problem that is actually because of your microphone properties settings.
