Microphone isn't working - Xonar Essence ST

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone

I recently reïnstalled windows 7(64 bit), so i had to reïnstall all the drivers,... etc, but now my microphone won't work.

It's a regular 3.5mm clip on mic, that i plug in to the front port input.

But now the windows sound mixer says that the microphone is "currently unavailable".

It also won't work if i plug it into the line in on the audio card itself.

Is there a way to make the microphone "available" again, or something else that i should do?

 

Thanks in advance.

Bump.

Happened to me quiet a few times when I was using Win7, make sure you have the last version of the drivers installed just in case.

My workaround was to, with the microphone plugged in, try to restart the device in the 'device manager' console to get the 'microphone' device available and working normally.
