Hi Guys, Thanks in advance for your help. I've some time googling for people with similar problems but came up with nothing.
I have an Asus p6t SE motherboard and a box with front panel mic and headphone jacks. I can't get the mic to work on the front panel using HD audio. The headphones work fine, and windows recognizes when I've plugged in a jack into the front audio, but not the front mic.
The bios allows me to choose the front output as Legacy AC'97 or HD audio. When I choose Legacy AC'97 the mic jack works, but the headphones sound like crap (Mono instead of stereo maybe?). When I choose HD audio, the headphones sound way better but the mic doesn't work.
I've made sure that the front audio module is plugged into the motherboard as an "HD audio" device.
What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your help, I'm starting to go !
Thanks jaquith. I updated using the most recent high definition audio codec from the website. Unfortunately it didn't solve my problem. I can't get the system to recognize when I plug in the front mic.
