Hello, i have microfone problems on GA-EX58-UD5 It all started on Win Vista 64 with Logitech Digital precision. I always thougth they sucked cause mic never worked like it should. Problems were mostly...


Looking at the Logitech website at the link below this is a classic example of a Windows 7 Driver not being available.

http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2193/section/troubleshoot/crid/438/lt_product_id/2986/tabs/1,3,2,5/cl/us,en/kw/

You could try downloading the latest Audio Driver for your GA-EX58-UD5 Mainboard from the link below by selecting your operating system, but I think as long as you're running Windows 7 these problems will just continue until they get their act together and start poducing the required drivers.

My laptops (toshiba with windows 7) built in microphone won't work. I'm trying to call a friend through Windows Messenger and I can hear her but she can't hear me. Any ideas on what to do?


Hello, maybe the volume control for mic (in Windows) is turned down or set to 'mute' I only know where to find it in XP, which is Start > Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control
and you want to view the 'advanced' controls.
Hope you can relate this to your Windows 7 system.

They are normally fairly robust but the lead can get damaged

Try loading the software yourself
Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?"

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to check the support software - Microsoft DirectX . This comes pre-loaded on most Windows computers but has to be updated - I am currently on version 11
To start the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click 'Start', click 'Run', type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK
Run through the tabs checking the 'notes' windows for information
The version will be shown on the 'Systems' tab

Procedure to re-install Logitech software
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options during the installation - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

Not working ? - troubleshoot your drivers and software - get your cam working before moving on

Set your webcam mic as default ( if it has a built in mic)

Plug in the webcam
