I have a razer cacharias headset and the speakers work perfect. The microphone worked fine yesterday but now it doesn't at all. I tried another microphone and it didnt work either. It shows it as working under recording devices but the green bar doesn't move like its not picking up anything. Now here's the kicker.....the SAME problem from yesterday to today on my wifes computer...and she has windows XP.

Was there some kind of update that made everyones settings go fubar?

-SoudMax integraded HD audio on an Asus M2N-SLI deluxe mobo
-updated drivers
-Mic is not muted
-The cords are plugged in correctly.

I just don't know what to do, it's driving me crazy :(  I appreciate the help ahead of time.

apparently the sound on this board is causing a lot of people problems. There was a thread here on tom's about a year ago about popping etc and the solution was a bios update. So look for the bios update on asus' site that has that in the description. If that doesnt fix it ... can always get a pci sound card and skate around the issue entirely.
