Front mic panel not working, "not plugged in"
Ok im at wits end! Im pretty sure i got this to work before. But i forgot how to do it. My front mic panel doesnt work ive spent hours trying to find the solution but failed
The front panel used to work before so im sure it shouldnt be a hardware issue. About six months ago i was tweeking the settings and somehow managed to make the back panel the default, but that disabled the front port, i didnt care at the time coz i didnt need it. I want my speakers hooked up to the back panel while my headset and mic to be hooked up to the front panels. My problem is that it keeps telling me that the mic is not plugged in even though it is, and yes the mic and earphones are plugged in the right place. Any tips on what i need to do? Ive already reinstalled the motherboard OS if that helps.
This is a pic of my recording settings.
Also the front earphone slot was working yesterday while the mic wasnt, but i tweeked with it too much and now both the earphone slot and the mic slot have stopped working.

What you mean for motherboard OS?
Try going in your BIOS settings (during boot press a key like F2 or Del, it should tell you what key to press to enter Setup in the white text) and look for audio settings in its panels.
If that does not work I'd try uninstalling the audio drivers and reinstalling them again.
Go here, download the most recent file in the "AUDIO" category, then go to Device Manager (write "device manager" in the Start menu searchbox) and then look in the category "sound, video and game controllers" to find your audio device, double click on it and in the new panel select the Driver tab, then select "uninstall", and then tick the box about deleting the driver. Close all these panels.
Then go in Programs and features (again Start searchbox if you cannot find it), and look for your audio utilities, and uninstall them.
Then reboot (power down and power up) and install the drivers (and probably utilities) that are in the package you downloaded a few lines above.
