Windows 7: WINDOWS 7 64 bit and built in mic not working

WINDOWS 7 64 bit and built in mic not working

I have a toshiba satellite x205 with a built in mic. I had vista for 2 years with no problems with my mic. Upon reformatting my labtop and installing windows 7 as a clean install, my mic does not work. It's not muted. It's enabled. The volume status on the right side under recording devices does not move. My mic jack device is enabled, but says that it's "currently unavailable." I've done google searches trying to find a solution. It sounds like a bunch of guys have had this problem too, with a few minor exceptions. I need a solution. This is driving me crazy!

(SOLVED) Apparently all it was was updating my drivers. :P Still learning about this whole drivers deal
