I tried on Asus website but nobody answered... Maybe u could advise???

Asus P8P67 pro B3

I have a weird issue. My front mic does not work. When I plug my mic in, I can see a popup windows saying that I connected my mic, but when I try to record sth, it does not work, cant hear my voice...
Case is R3 Fractal with a HD audio front panel

A few things I checked:

1. Mic is 100% ok
2. Front speaker jack is working
3. Back mic jack is working

Any ideas?

Maybe an Idea....
Double-click on both the Realtek HD Audio Manger, and the "volume" speaker icon in the taskbar, and make sure the mic is not muted. Windows often does this during install/repair/upgrade.
If that doesn't work, sorry I could not help.

I have the same issue with the same board. I went on Ventrillo the other day and had the same problem. I didn't mess around with it yet but I will this week. If I find something, I'll let you know.

on mine though when i plug in my headset and select headphones it doesnt work but if i select front audio line in then i can hear sound. maybe we shouldnt select "mic" when we plug in the mic but is there any other option to select?

just a thought...

I had this same issue, the back mic was working fine but the front was not working for the Fractal R3.

Whenever I plugged in the mic, I would get a Realtek HD audio manager popup. I noticed that the playback volume was at 0% when I plugged it in the front vs 100% when I would plug it in the back. Looks like the settings are specific to each port. Adjusting it fixed the issue for me.

Hope this helps.
