Windows 7: Microphone Question

When i try with headphones, i DO get both channels, the left is louder , but the right a good 50%.

Also in the following article, under sound,speakers,properties/playback,levels there is a mic balance settings switch, which does NOT show in my sound section with or without mic plugged in. Do you know how to enable this switch? Could this be the culprit.

Sound card clearly working ok, and wired connections produce sound to both speakers on all audio bar mic, so does this not point to internal settings?

My brain hurts now! So close to completion.

If it works OK with headset it should work OK with speakers. Plug the headset into the rear GREEN speaker jack and see what you get.

I have RealTek and there is no options for the Microphone balance, either in the RealTek HD Audio Manager or in the Soiund/Recording section.

I really appreciate you trying to help, very kind of you.

Will try that with the green socket.

I've just ordered this to achieve the same connection as before.

Update, I plugged phones into the rear green socket and only got the left channel.

Set up other sockets , the phone one etc where I had 2 channels as a speaker socket and always got 1 speaker only.

Updated to latest realtek drivers and no change.

In the end tried a cheap usb mic and worked straight away!

So don't know what's wrong , but I think I'm gonna go the usb route now, as I have a Nio 2 usb mixer I can plug my mica into, wish me luck!

On other thing to try. I assume you have been plugging the mic into the front panel mic jack. Try the PINK mic jack on the rear of the PC and see what happens.
