"Unable to find a compatible SRS Audio Device."

I have an Asus k60ij laptop and all of a sudden this message appears when I boot up my CPU. I have recently wiped out my CPU.
I have gone onto the Asus site and cant seem to find it. My CPU says that the mic is working properly but it doesn't pick up sound...my speakers and other sound seems to work though. The volume and everything is up on the mic, but can't get it to work...
Please HELP...
Thanks

I believe different brands might use different names. If you have the SRS Premium Sound Control Panel, that should do it. Everyone complains on how weird it makes the sound, and how it sounds better without. A Guy

Double-click the speaker icon in the system tray, and see if the mute box for the microphone is selected. Also see if there is an onboard sound control panel, you are looking for mic muting or perhaps a setting in the sound card. Type Sound in the start menu search box, and explore the various recording and sound options. I don't have a laptop myself, and have never used the mic. A Guy

Still...

As i had the same problem for nearly one long year and just found the solution, i decided to write here for friends like me.


Question: Unable to find a compatible SRS Audio Device.

Solution is simple; Windows - Start - All Programs - Startup - (here will you see it. A single line. SRS etc. Simply delete it. Really that simple and i did fight on long year with this!)
