Mic doesn't work unless i unplug, plug back in


New Member

My microphone does not work after I reboot/start my computer unless I unplug it for about 5 seconds and plug it back in so RealTek can redetect it. Then it works fine until I shut it off or reboot the computer and then I must do it again.

I have looked on Google and I can't find anything, just other people having the same exact problem without fixes.

I have a BIOSTAR TA790GXB A2+ AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX Full-Atx mobo from newegg right here: Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TA790GXB A2+ AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

I have the latest BIOS version as well. I used the BIOS update utility that came on the motherboard CD. I also have the latest RealTek drivers and have tried reinstalling several times. And like I said before, this was happening before I reformatted too, but strangely about 2 weeks before I formatted it just stopped happening and worked fine...... so strange.

Help please!

Make sure that your front audio ports are plugged into the motherboard, and are not loose.
