I just got done installing Windows XP on my computer and have been attempting to get all my things updated and back up and running, but the one thing I cannot seem to get to work anymore is my mic being detected by Windows. Steps I have already taken:
1. Fully updated to Service Pack 3 and all available updates through Windows Update
2. Updated drivers for my motherboard and graphics cards
3. Updated drivers for Realtek HD Audio
4. Tested the headset on another computer (worked just fine, also can hear my own feedback)
Now this problem has only started happening since I installed XP. I actually had a copy of Windows 7 previously but due to me misplacing the disc (and the product key...) I had to revert to a free'd up copy of XP after a hard drive failure. I've been using
voice chat programs for online games for some time now using this same hardware setup. The only thing that changed was going from 7 to XP.
I've gone into the mixer and so far have made it where it won't detect the front panel (which is disconnected anyway), made sure my mic volume was at max, made sure all options for recording were unmuted, and made sure the WIndows mic options were at max output.
So far though, I still have no sound detection from my mic.
Motherboard is a EVGA P55V with Intel chipset
Graphics are 2 SLI'd Envidia GTS 450 (because I've seen some troubleshoot issues that have been graphic card related)
Headset being used is a Turtle Beach EarForce X12
Any additional help would be appreciated.
