Hi, My microphones aren't working with the Realtek sound card, I've tried different mics including a brand new one and the build in one on the laptop. I've also searched Google for the common problems and can't seem to find any answers. The drivers are up to date, the microphone is enabled and set as default in the sounds panel and volume turned up to full. My mics have worked in the past (about a year or so ago now). They also work with old drivers dating back to 2005 that are installed when I click roll back drivers in the sound options, but the sound quality makes my ears bleed, so that isn't an option. tl;dr Mic isn't working with Realtek sound card, tried everything.
