Updated with a full re-write and many more details + screenshots.
I am so sorry for messing you into this Intel, it was a 3rd party program called Nahimic (which is shipped with my MSI laptop) that caused this mayhem! Simply exiting the program fixes the glitch. I have informed their team and I am hoping for a quick and painless fix!
Cheers to everybody!
