Okay, I have an Asus mother board with a Onboard Soundcard "SoundMax". Sound worked fine and Mic worked fine. Than out of no where. Mic no longer works. Sound still works, just the mic is dead. Checked out Soundconfig, chacked for updates to Drivers nothing. Tested Mic on diffrent computer. Worked just fine. Went and got a SoundBaster LIVE 5.1 PCI card, installed and everything. Sound works. Yet the mic still does not work. Checked settings, every thing is fine. Went and got a new mic. Brand new mic, still nothing. So my only guess is something with the Motherboard. When I run Soundrecorder, the mic will record Sounds that the computer is makeing, such as IMs from AOL, or anything else...so weird. I have no Idea what to do from this point.
