  1. Hi,I browsed trough hundreds of threads and I still haven't fixed my problem.
    Which is mainly this - my mic is too low on volume (I use headphones).
    If I install Realtek AC97 Audio Driver 4.06 the mic works fine,but then sound comes from the speakers AND the headphones as well.If I install the HD driver - then the same old low volume.
    Don't tell me to go to control panel - sound and audio etc - Volume options enable mic etc etc - Did that thousands of times.
    I also re-installed all AC'97 codecs and ALL of auido drivers.
    I just can't seem to increase the volume.No mic boost thing works,no calibration in MicCal works.Nothing works.
    Here is my dx diag
    can someone please tell what is wrong.

    did you try going to the control panel>>>sound and audio>>>Volume options enable mic etc etc?

    What OS are you using? If Win 7, Try right-clicking the speaker in the bottom-right notification area and open volume mixer to adjust your output levels.
