Here is the issue: For nearly 3 months I had NO problems with my mic working, but suddenll, about 3 hours ago, out of the blue it just stopped working. All my friends hear in Ventrilo is buzzing now. I tried my mic on my other PC with Windows XP and it works great, like it did 4 hours ago. Currently my PC recognizes I have a mic plugged in and here are my settings:

It is set as my default recording device.

It is at 100% Sound Level and it is un-muted. (The mute button currently shows a speaker with 2 blue waves coming from it.

I tried plugging it into both the front and back Mic-In lines (the pink ones). Nada.

My Line-In is disabled. I tried doing that to fix it, still didnt work. It was originally enabled when is stopped.

And I tried to record myself AND go into the recording options where it asks you to speak the sentence. And it picks up NOTHING.

Finally, under the Sounds>Recording Menu, The 10 Green bars next to Microphone, is doing something weird. When I first plug in the mic, all 10 bars shoot up Green. After about 5 secs they slowing start disappearing and now it sits at 2 green bars. I have tried this numerous times, and from what I can remember, its always been full. Oh, and for some reason I have 2 Microphone options above the Line-In option.

Please help me. It is statistically improbabable BOTH of my Mic-In ports failed, and the Mic works PERFECT on my other PC. So I seriously doubt is a hardware issue. Something just shut it down

Try using Windows' "System Restore" to roll Windows back to a previous state when your computer was functioning correctly:
