    Can you post the exact make of your motherboard? This utility will tell which it is (and also your audio set up)

    Threads have also been merged. Please do not double post to save confusion.

    Hi

    I had this on my last computer, I just couldn't get any microphone to work when plugged into the Microphone audio port.

    I finally went out and bought a usb microphone problem solved.

    If you have any use for a web cam I would suggest the Microsoft Life Cam VX5000.
    $30 from Amazon. That's what I'm using now.

    Amazon.com: Microsoft LifeCam VX-5000 (Red): Electronics: Reviews, Prices & more

    I use mine with Skype and for recording with good results, the sound quality is good even when I'm sitting a couple of feet away from it. In fact yesterday when I was talking on Skype with a friend he could hear my cat meowing in the back ground.

    Mike

    Is this a "Gateway" computer? If so (of if not) please post as much information regarding the actual computer as possible, regarding the manufacturer's name, model name, model number, etc. The intel MoBo DP965LV, looks like it was a proprietary intel board used in some gateway computers but it may also be that other manufacturers used it also. There may be other members with the same computer that may have specific information regarding your issue.
    How does device manager look? is there anything there that is indicating problem issues with yellow or red indicators, or anything listing "Other Devices", are all other sound featurers working properly?

    I assume you have tried the driver here Gateway Support Drivers & Downloads
    Some people with similar problems have reported success using this driver http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&Inst=Yes&ProductID=2578&DwnldID=13706&strOSs=All&OSFullName=All%20Operating%20Systems&lang=eng
    It seems to be recommended for the 965LT board so it may work on your 965LV, generally if the installer doesn't detect any supported hardware then the process will just halt. Make sure you have "Jack Monitoring" enabled.
    Since both of these are Vista drivers you may have to run them using compatability mode go get anywhere.
