    Hi I After buying my new motherboard Ive managed to get my sound working however I am unsure wheather I have the right driver as my microphone does not work, you just hear static noises or it plays my sound.

    Computer spec:
    Operating System-Microsoft Windows XP Professional (SP3)
    Motherboard - Asus crosshair formula 3
    Video Adapter-NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 (896 MB)
    Processor- 3.21Ghz 3.00GB RAM

    Under multimedia the following:
    Device Identifier Device Description
    midi-out.0 0001 0066 Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth
    mixer.0 FFFF FFFF SoundMAX HD Audio
    mixer.1 FFFF FFFF HD Audio digital out 2
    wave-in.0 FFFF FFFF SoundMAX HD Audio
    wave-out.0 FFFF FFFF SoundMAX HD Audio
    wave-out.1 FFFF FFFF HD Audio digital out 2

    Great info but what sort of mic is it?

    The Microphone should be plugged should go into the "Pink Socket".

    In the bottom right hand corner "right click" on the little speaker and Open Volume Control.

    Ensure that "Rear Pink In" Mute is "unchecked". Play with this volume control and test input, can you hear it now? You may also want to hit the Advanced button and select Microphone Boost.

    Hope this helps.
