    Cancelling out background noise


    Hi, I occasionally play on my laprop in my front room with my family however when I'm on skype to my friends they can hear my TV and Family louder than I can! Is there any software that can lower the levels of background noise or any tips on how to make it so it's quieter for them?

    You need a noise canceling microphone.

    I doubt you have Realtek sound card but it's drivers have, Noise Suppression, Acoustic Echo Canceling and Beam Forming (directional recording) settings, Check your drivers, there might be something similar. Also see if there is Microphone Boost settings somewhere and lover it down.
