I'm having some issues with my computer and microphones. Specifically, I can't use microphones on my computer. They work on others, but whenever they are on mine I just get a bit of static and nothing more. I've messed around with the settings alot and still nothing, Microphone Boost is on, Front Panel is off, nothing is muted, and the volume is up to full. I use Windows XP, SoundMax Integrated Digital HD Audio and my Processors are the Intel® Core™2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz. I've used Driver Detective to see if my drivers have anything to do with it and it says they are up to date also. Help please?

HI cutts,

first,if you get a static on your speakers or microphone,it's a
sign of poor grounding or effect of EMF on non-shielded wires/cables.

try to un-install the sound driver then re-install again.some are
fixed with this kind of procedure,otherwise you have to check the molex
connectors inside your tower case.

HI cutts,

you must have the CD that comes with your motherboard
before you un-install the sound driver.

go to start > run > at the search box type devmgmt.msc.

you will be prompted to the device manager,navigate down to
sound,viideo & game controllers.click & you will see the
SoundMax Integrated Digital HD Audio.right click then un-install.

when done,go to Add/Remove programs,try & check if you see
the Soundmax then remove it.you need to have a clean driver
install.

after that,reboot your machine,when prompted with automatic
hardware installation wizard,close it & re-install the sound driver
manually.
