Is that turned up all the way? Also, is the volume turned up all the way in the application you're using? | Report abuse Reply to zdbc13 killadeathx December 3, 2012 9:48:34 PM Well i have no mic volume on the mic itself, and the volume is max on my realtek hd audio manager. Would i have to reinstall window 7 for it work? | Report abuse Reply to killadeathx zdbc13 Motherboard Expert December 4, 2012 3:18:22 PM Before you do that go to Device Manager and delete your microphone device, then re-start and see if it re-installs properly. If that doesn't work, I'd re-install windows. | Report abuse Reply to zdbc13 killadeathx December 10, 2012 3:02:03 AM Well i did all that and reinstalled windows, still doesnt work and forgot to mention that my motherboard is called Asrock Z77 Extreme6 LGA1155 | Report abuse Reply to killadeathx zdbc13 Motherboard Expert December 10, 2012 12:33:20 PM Have you tried another mic? Yours may have died coincidentally about the same time you changed motherboards. Is there a special driver for that mic from the manufacturer's site? | Report abuse Reply to zdbc13 killadeathx December 13, 2012 9:07:50 PM there's no special driver for my mic and i tried using a usb wecam's mic, but it was barely louder than my headset's mic | Report abuse Reply to killadeathx killadeathx December 15, 2012 10:21:19 PM Would i just be able to buy a usb soundcard?
