  1. Hello everybody!!

    I just bought the new motherboard it's Gigabyte GA-MA78SG-S2H and the sound card is onboard Realtek ALC889A. When I plug the speaker (2ch) nothing's wrong with it. But when i try to set up the microphone, I plug the jack on and yes there's a pop up balloon appear "You just plugged a device into audio something bla bla bla". Then there's a pop up from realtek sound manager about connected device, then I tick "Mic In" (I plug it on the pink-microphone) :

    see attachment (screen1.JPG)

    I think it's done and I started to test the microphone. But I can't hear anything from it. Does anyone have some clue for this problem?
    Please help me, I almost giving up ^___^

    Thanks before,

    Check your Device Manager for red or yellow flags. Fix anything there.
    If nothing, then download and reinstall the audio drivers, either from Gigabyte, or from RealTek.
