    Hello

    First my specs:
    Windows 7 Ultimate English
    Headset: Sennheiser Worldwide - PC 350
    MSI P35-NEO-F, Intel P35 (Realtek onboard soundcard)

    I let Windows 7 install two drivers (High Defintion Audio Device and Realtek High Defintion Audio), I then installed this driver/software MSI Europe ? Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more (Realtek High Definition Audio Driver at the bottom)

    The sound is working, but my microphone wont work. It worked on XP with the same driver, but there is no sound coming when I speak. The volume indicator is also not moving.

    Here is what the sound settings look like in Windows 7 and Realtek HD Audio Manager:

    It doesnt matter if I use stereo mix or anything else. It doesnt change

    Any ideas?

    Thanks :)

    When you use the mike in the rear plug, do the bars move to the right of the microphone with the green checkmove, or is that what you are referring to?

    Check and make sure you do not have it muted, and it looks like the input volume is all the way up.

    I saw Realtek had some legacy audio drivers for Win 7. Are those the ones you refer to in your post?

    I mean in "Sound -> Recording" the bar is not going up or down when I speak (It should be green)

    Im not sure if those are the drivers. Can you give me a link?

    I checked the settings there, but nothing worked.

    I tried putting "microphone boost" up but that only resulted in alot of background noise.

    And yes I checked to see if the mic is on and it is.
