  1. i bought this motherboard a couple of weeks ago , set it up and my pc and mic worked fine...then a couple of days ago, completely out of the blue my mic just stops working. I know its my motherboard or pc (possibly drivers??) because my mic works on other pc's, could someone please provide a possible solution if there is any. I am considering buying a seperate soundcard to the one on the board but i dont know if this would fix the problem..if it would could someone tell me if i have to disable the original sound card on the motherboard and how to do this. i am soooo desperate as i use it (my mic) alot in online gaming. thanks

    Are you plugging your mic directly into your mobo (back panel) or are you using a socket on the front of your pc?

    Ok. What would be really helpful now is if you were to explain what you have already tried and checked. For example, have you gone through windows live messenger audio setup?

    i have tried leaving the mic unplugged overnight, have tried plugging it into the front port and i have gone into the windows vista voice recognition setup but it still will not pick up any sound (the mic) in any program that uses it

    You dont have it set to monitor. This is the default setting so you do not get feedback. If the bar was going up and down then it is registering your voice.

    You should have something like a mixer board GUI you can open. Mine is done by Creative Soundblaster. In there you can set volumes and stuff for midi, CD , line-in and stuff. I belive you need to mute out "line-in" channel and unmute your "Record-in" channel.
