Recording is choppy and cutting out

My recording is choppy and cutting out. I’ve tried to adjust the buffer length to no avail. I have a brand new 2023 computer with windows 11 and have downloaded Audacity for Windows 11. Please help! Thank you.

Try rebooting, then don’t start anything else other than Audacity. Especially a browser. I believe Audacity’s default buffer setting is 100.

What are you recording?
