Hello, I have a system running Windows 7 Pro 32-bit which does not show any icons whatsoever when right-clicking on the speaker in the system tray and then clicking on the RECORDING DEVICES option. There doesn't appear to be any devices disconnected and none that are disabled. There simply isn't any type of device listed at all. This particular user is about to buy and connect a USB microphone to this system. Will he run into problems with no devices listed in this area? Is there something no correctly configured in the BIOS? He is using an ASUS MB, but I do not have the model number in front of me at the moment. The sound, however, is onboard (no separate sound card installed). I should also note to you that he has full sound capability, full CD/DVD playback sound, full Windows theme sounds, etc. Your help is most appreciated. Thank you.
