Every now and then i use my micophone when i play games. Sometimes i get sound and sometimes i don't from my mic. I know i did do soemthing to make it work but i don't know what i did to make it not work. I thought it might be the mic because it's ancient so i jsut bought a new one and there's no sound. I did all the control panel>sounds and audio stuff and still nothing. Can anyone please help.

Did you make sure it's not muted? While playing games, it sometimes mutes it so that the sound won't come out of your speakers, but people you talk to can hear you.

I know it's not muted because i've gone voer the options time and time again. Even if it did mute in-game wouldn't i still be able to record when i'm not? I mean when i go tot he recorder that comes with windows there's no sound waves or anything, just a straight line.

It gives the microphone a boost, which is good if you cannot hear anything. Here's how to enable it. Open the Volume Controls by double clicking on the speaker icon at the bottom-right of your screen. You should see "Microphone" somewhere in there, right? There should be an advanced button underneath the "microphone" volume settings. Click on it. You will now see a check box for the 20 dec boost. Check it, and hit ok. Exit the Volume Controls and give it a shot.

EDIT: The driver "crapped out"? Why? Did you do something, or did it just kind of happen? Try updating them from the manufacturer's website.
