What software are you using?

Have you tried turning up the RF gain?

What type of antenna are you using? Indoor or out?

Please give us a little more info so we can help.

did you adjust the bandwith? can you see anything outside the broadcast band? did you change mode to FM from WFM?

Can you see a spectral display of the individual FM broadcast band stations?

If you can take a snapshot of the computer screen it might help.

Try another SDR stick. The cold dry air of winter creates a static electricity issue. One touch of that antenna with a charged up finger can blow the receiver's pre-amp and after which only very strong signals will be heard.
