No audio recording device

I am running the following motherboard: Asus AT3GC-I which has the VIA VT 1705 6 -Channel High-Definition Audio CODEC device.

Windows does not find the microphone. When I connect a logitech webcam, the camera and mic show in device manager but the MIC is not shown under "Recording Devices"

I have tried almost every driver imaginable. Any Idea what are my other options?

This is what it says about the audio on my board:

Enjoy high-end sound system on your PC! The onboard HD audio (High Definition Audio, previously codenamed Azalia) CODEC enables high-quality 192KHz/24-bit audio output, jack-sensing feature, retasking functions and multi-streaming technology that simultaneously sends different audio streams to different destinations. You can now talk to your partners on the headphone while playing a multi-channel network games. All of these are done on one computer.

  1. Go here to get the drivers you need:

    Select the entries for your system and you should be good to go. You may also need to got into Control Panel/Sound to make sure your recording device is selected as default.

    Good luck!

    Which part? The drivers or the Control Panel/Sound part? In the Recording tab of Sound, what (if anything) is listed?
  4. I go to "Manage Audio Devices" in control panel and select the recording tab. Nothing is listed. I have enabled "Show Hidden and Show Disconnected Devices". Nothing is listed.
  5. Do you have a mic plugged into the MIC IN port? Some drivers/tools won't enable a device unless they detect their presence.

    The webcam mic is a USB device, right? Did you load the Logitech drivers?
  6. Nothing plugged in. webcam is a USB device and I have tried with Logitech drivers as well as default USB drivers.
  7. So the webcam gets an image, but its built-in mic doesn't pick up any sound. Right?
  8. BTW, the sound card mic input and the webcam mic are 2 different things and rely upon 2 different drivers.
  9. yea thats the thing. In device manager it lists the webcam mic but not the soundcard mic. In the "manage audio devices" tab it shows neither. I know I am running the right drivers.
  10. Does Skype (assume you have it) pick up any audio?
  11. Sorry was away for a while. I am going to try Skype tonight.
  12. Best answer
    Good luck! Just trying to determine if either your mic (regular) or webcam mic are picking up anything.
