Windows 7: Microphone not showing in device manager

Microphone not showing in device manager

I recently tried to plugin a connectland cl me 001 microphone with no result after trying to use the sound recorder to test it.
After trawling thru google I could find nothing that looks like my problem

the manufactures website is in French and of little use to me.
I have plugged it in to a different machine where it worked fined.
This makes me think the mike is not the problem it is also not the sound driver which I updated.
any useful comments will be appreciated thanks in advance

Without more PC specifications, including what sound module, we can't really offer much advice.

However, one thing I see is the "High Defintion Audio Device". That suggests the drivers for the sound hardware are not installed and only the generic, basic function, Windows installed sound driver.

Thanks for your input could you please me tell where to find the pc and sound module specs needed.
Regarding the "High Defintion Audio Device" this also appears in the list of playback devices which when disabled has no effect on sound produced by the speakers


again I appreciate your advice

The free SPECCY program will help as it will list your hardware. However, it may not list everything. If it does not list what sound hardware you have, it will list the Gigabyte motherboard model and you should be able to get the additional information from Gigabyte.

Sadly, Speccy didn't help. The motherboard is not found doing a google search and the sound is only listed as High Definition Audio Device. Windows has installed a driver but not all functions are available.

Unless you can find and install the proper sound driver, there isn't much else I can help you with. Sorry.

Thanks Then the user needs to install the Realtek ALC885 drivers as a first step.
The R2.75 High Definition Audio Codecs on the Realtek site are the applicable drivers.
