Question about ASUS M2N-E SLi Motherboard
My Computer's Microphone (Headset) is not working with Windows Vista. But It is working with Windows Xp.
So Please give me the solution. Give me settings so I can start it
My microphone has always worked on vista for, I use it everyday on skype, but today it will not work, I can hear the caller but they cannot hear me. I thought my headset was broken and i bought a new one. but its still doing the same thing with the new headset. It says the microphone settings are enabled and working, but when i do the mic test, it says that it cannot hear me.
what can i do?? help!

I had that problem and I think I can help.
-Type in Sound in the vista search or do the control panel Hardware and Sound thing to get to the sound stuff. Hit the Recording tab. If you have the same problem as I had, you will see Stereo Mix and Microphone there, but Stereo Mix is the default and Microphone says "Not working." What you need to do is click on microphone to select it, and go to the bottom of that same tab and hit set default. Sorry I'm not too technical, but for me this solved the problem.

Just got off with Dell support. Make sure both headset plugs (microphone & headset icons) are plugged into the 2 headset jacks. Do not plug the microphone plug into the microphone port when using a headset. Use both headset ports. This was the problem for me.

Microsoft Vista SP2 could be the problem - Soundmax driver no longer working for the mic. Windows update installed High Definition Audio Device for a driver - mic still not working. My dual boot (Vista, XP pro) to XP still works fine. Driver problem with Soundmax and Microsoft.

Finally after few months
of problem i managed to get my mic running in vista. First get the new drivers
from net it will say version something compatibility issues when u try to
update it. Then uninstall the driver from the pc from device manager,
select sound video game controller… and then your sound card or onboard
which ever company. Select and right click uninstall and then the check box
delete the driver for this device. Restart you pc and when it starts to update
the driver in the task bar cancel it. And go to the device manager same sound
video… this time it will say high definition audio, select it and update
driver, browse my computer, select LET ME PICK FROM A LIST OF DEVICES, next
have disk and give the location of the new drivers that u have downloaded if it
does not take them then try the i386 folder in it. Will prompt u drivers not ….blaa
blaa yes and pronto did work for me hope it does for u. And yes I have asus
board with soundmax drivers got them from
Best of all use driver genius pro, it will tell u what latest driver u should have. If it can get the drivers for u fine otherwise get the from net and follow the rest. Mail me for any other explanation [email protected]

I have tried all of the solutions above-
* Reinstalled Vista
* Checked jacks are properly connected
* I do not have ANY other software installed on Vista
* Disabled and enabled Sigmatel
* Checked other versions of mics
* Checked sound settings in control panel
YET my mic is not working. The speakers and headphones are working fine.
I am using Dell Inspiron 6400. The mic is external with a headset.

I rolled back my sound driver, after that it worked perfect.

What kind of microphone are you using. If you're using a Carbon Mike (that's like the kind included in a lot of Software Packages), they're already high gain (some case too high). Look a the setting for microphone, you can increase gain by 10db, that will get you there with one (over gain).
If it's not a Carbon Mike, that's so common, you required a pre-amp for the microphone, I'm using a Equalizer that has a gain of up to 12db, and it work fine. It's FET, so it also isolates, so I'm using another on for Line Out. Work's great, and I can balance it.

You can try the link provided below. As you might all ready know, Asus does not provide drivers for windows 7 and your MB, P5VD2-MX SE.
