Ok, so I have a Gateway desktop computer, and when I got it it had Windows XP on it, Everything was fine then, my audio all worked perfectly. But when I did a clean install of Windows 7 suddenly all my sound was gone. I looked in Start>Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Manage Audio Devices, and it said that there was "No audio devices installed". So I unplugged my headphones and plugged in my usb speakers that came with the computer. Suddenly windows 7 installed some magical software and now I could hear. But, there was still no device for a recording device. As of now I don't have a microphone but I want to use a pair of headphones for one, but I can't because Windows 7 will not pick up the fact that there is hardware plugged into the Mic Jack without a device installed. So I was wondering if anyone knew where I could download and install a device so that it will work. Sorry this is so long.
