I have a Intel DG965WH motherboard and recently installed updated bios and audio drivers. Which of my currently installed drivers corresponds to the one on the motherboard? My choices in Device Manager are: Audio Codecs, IDT High Definition Audio CODEC and Legacy Audio Drivers. To further confuse me, the choices listed in the Control Panel Sounds and Audio Devices Properties under Audio are: IDT Audio1, C-Media Wave Device, AK5370 and Audio Control. I would like to disable the ones I don't need to see if the DG965WH audio is working.

Try upgrading the motherboard BIOS to the most current version. You can download the bios from the ASUS website. If you have not done so, also download the most current audio drivers from the same place. (I assume you have already done this but if not, you should).
Update the BIOS first. Then, install the most recent audio drivers.
Your motherboard manufacturer is Intel and their website for that mainboard is located here. Drivers and bios updates ( last bios update is 27 July 08 ). I highly recommend you get and install the bios update, but to be truthful only the driver updates should be needed to satisfy your problem. I suggest that either the audio driver you are now using is defective or that possibly you don't know how to use the audio controls to set your mic volume. On most windows installation if the audio drivers are set up as a default installation, there will be located an audio configuration control in the system tray ( lower right of windows screen next to the time/clock. This audio control will have various icons depending on the software involved but could be as simple as a speaker cone or as complex as the name of the software controlling the audio. Open the icon if one exists and set the Mic modulation to around 80% of maximum and unless the driver is totally wrong for your chipset, it should work like a champ....
If the southbridge chipset is intact and operational, either physically open the case and see if you can visually see the chip set #,
or my favorite, download and run everesthome, click on + by motherboard click on chipset click on southbridge in right column, google the chip set drivers or the audio control set drivers or click on the "ask me " under my id .and give me the #'s I'll link you to the updated drivers.
