2 main things to be blamed is probably Realtek and Windows 7. I even email Realktek about problems, support is shit. Didn't even get a reply. Proves how crap Realtek is.
When is Windows gonna make a update so it works or something, so many people are having problems with soundcards, it's not funny anymore! Why make a new version of Windows if it's not stable and things don't work!
Realtek + Windows 7 works fine here but I wouldn't consider it for any kind of serious music production.
There is a big point with ASIO4All. ASIO4All is a custom "low latency" driver, something unavailable no matter which version of Realtek driver you install.
The ASIO drivers available in Cubase are high latency emulations. ASIO4All is actually a true low latency driver.
Make sure your inputs are set up correctly, right click on the microsoft speaker icon in the system tray, select Recording devices. What's your default recording Device?
