This is my system (the microphone works on all distributions of Windows 7, I tested it on several other pcs and laptops/ 32 Bit and 64 Bit:
Acer Aspire 1 150L (upraded by myself to Win 7 Professional 32 Bit
1,6 GHZ intel atom (they call it dual core but that is somewhat wrong)
1 GB Ram DDR3 (+ 4 GB Ram Flash memory Card Ready Boost, works perfectly
Realtek High Definition Audio (onboard)
Intel Onboard graphic device
500 GB Hard Drive
built in microphone
built in camera
That is the problem:
I bought a Logitech USB Microphone.
A friend of mine went to Britain and we use to chat with each other once a month. As we are more than 3 people when we are in contact a USB Microphone proved to be better than a Headset or a normal Micro.
We used to use a headset with the jack entries of the laptop and it worked, but the sound quality was really bad. So we bought the usb micro wich did not work.
Now I have this microphone and 5 people can talk and the quality is perfectly (he says that he can hear us as if we are there). However the microphone works on every goddamn system except my netbook. As the netbook is really easy to transport that would have been our choice, but for some reason windows 7 does not recognize the device.
If i plug it into the USB device Windows 7 says the following:
Device not found.
There is no driver
download possible as Logitech claims that they are not allowed to provide a driver because Microsoft has the cophyright for USB drivers
. (However there is a driver, but you cannot download it).
REaltek told me the same!
Microsoft wrote: "There is no such driver update in the moment, but the device works. Try to reinstall USB drivers."
I am desperately searching for these drivers and cannot find any. If I plug in Headsets in the jack devices it works, for some Reason the USB ports fail me. All other devices work in all of the usb ports, except microphones!
I tried everything. I disabled the built in microphone, I downloaded all new drivers for the chipset, soundcard, I even updated my bios. I restarted my system with a plugged in device, or unplugged device. The device is not in the mute modus (as I use the microphone on other systems to, where no driver installation was needed. I know the device and I am pretty darn good with computers)
Is there anybody out there who knows what I might have forgotten? Is there any possibility I might want to try out? A software that detects devices that can be recommended? (I tried driver genius pro and endet up with updated drivers, which did not work either.)
