You can get updates here but they only support Window Vista and older, if you have Windows 7, it is not supported by Asus.
You have Realtek audio(ALC662) so you can try Realtek's site which, so they say, does support Windows 7;

Something elese you might want to try, click on "start" then on "control panel". Find and right click on "device manager", open and click on continue. Click on the box(on right) next to "sound audio and game controllers". If you see a warning, click on the, ?, !, or triangle and follow proceedure. Right click on your device(s) one at a time. you should see "disable". If you see "enable" clcik on that again and exit. Right click on each device, one at a time, then click on "properties". You should see "this device is working properly". Click on "properties" tab, then on update driver. Click on "automatically search for update...", when finished, exit. Click on icon in your taskbar, lower right of screen, them click on "open sound mixer", and adjust your volume. If you have more than one device, you may have to try alternating enabling one device and disabling another, etc. The other option, if all else fails, would be to upgarde to a graphics card.

Are you using the microphone input jack in the back of the computer or on the front panel? Since this is an Asus board I am guessing someone built it and it wasn't bought from a manufacturer. That being said it could be the builder did not hook up the front panel connectors to the correct pins on the motherboard board, or did not hook them up at all. Try hooking up to the back and go to the control panel sound properties and check the settings there for microphone.

ConnectLand cl-me 606 goose neckdesktop microphone to desktop


Look for a 3.5 mm microphone port on the computer. Usually the port on the back of the desktop will have a pink surround. (There will be other ports there; the usual minimum are the green port for speakers and blue one for line-in.) Put the 3.5 mm jack on the end of the cord on the microphone into the port. If you have an add-in sound card, use the microphone port on the sound card.

Some machines will also have a front panel microphone port. This will have a small mike icon next to the port.

Next you need to ensure that the audio device is set to Microphone. For Windows systems (Vista/7/8), enter the Control Panel and go to the Hardware and Sound panel. Click on Manage Audio Devices under Sound. Then click on the Recording tab. Check if the microphone listed as plugged in. Make this the default recording device. (XP has a slightly different name for the panel.) For XP through Windows 7, click on the start button and then find the Control Panel listed on the right. For Windows 8, from the desktop, press the Ctrl and X keys at the same time. Then find the Control Panel in the list. (Alternatively, activate the Charms menu, Ctrl+C or hover on the upper right of the screen. Move down and click on the gear (Settings). Then select the Control Panel.)

If the computer doesn't indicate that the microphone is plugged in, make sure that the 3.5 mm plug is in the correct port. Next try the microphone on another computer. The audio card port could be damaged or the microphone cable could be faulty. If the microphone works on another computer, you can try a USB audio adapter (StarTech ICUSBAUDIO or similar) or a new sound card. (Note: some older sound cards do not work properly on newer versions of Windows. If you have a sound card installed and the motherboard has an on-board audio device, remove the sound card. Enable the on-board audio in the computer's BIOS. Install the appropriate audio drivers. Try that audio device. Accessing the BIOS will depend on computer. Often you can press Esc, F1, F2, F10 or Delete repeatedly after you turn on the computer. If Windows starts to boot, turn off the system and try again.) If another computer doesn't recognize the microphone, I'd recommend a new microphone. Fixing the cable isn't worth the effort.

I hope this helps.

Driver of sound


The Dell Support web site only offers audio drivers for Windows XP or earlier versions of Windows.
If you are using Windows Vista or 7 then you will probably have to rely on the default audio driver that these versions of Windows will load automatically when installed as Dell do not offer an official device driver for these versions.
The alternative approach if the built in sound device is not recognised and you cannot find a suitable device driver would be to buy either an internal sound card or a USB sound card - the latter just plugs into the USB port, provides the normal audio sockets and can be used to connect your speakers, headphones, microphone etc.

VGN-AW11M IN BUILT MICROPHONE IS NOT WORKING I GUESS IS BECAUSE I JUST INSTALL WINDOW 7


Hi, you mostly likely lose your driver for your microphone. Unfortunately, Sony doesn't seem to support windows 7 for your computer, only Vista, or at least the drivers for 7 is not on their site. What you could do is Google search you sound card, microphone, and mother board type and see if your can find a third party copies of working drivers for your computer. My Mind is telling me there are more things may not be working on your computer as before. Are they?

Or you may reply to this with the type of sound card and mother board and microphone hardware your computer has and I will try to find it for you.

Or better yet contact Sony, -- I am sure your paid lot of $$$$ for the computer.

I CANNOT GET THE MICROPHONE WORKING


This could be due to several reasons - 
> Faulty microphone (something could be wrong with the device, or the input jack) - Try using your microphone on a friend's PC. If it is working fine, then proceed to the next line.

> Incorrectly installed sound card - Have you installed the sound card and its drivers correctly? Update your sound card's drivers, and then give it a try with the microphone.
> Go to Control Panel->Sounds and Audio Devices. Go to Audio tab, and in the Sound Recording  section, check whether your sound card is selected. Click on Volume button here, and ensure that Microphone is "Selected". Do the same with the Voice tab too.

If your microphone has stopped working check to see if it is plugged in. If the drivers are installed correctly, and confirm that the diaphragm in the microphone has not blown.
