Try it in the back to rule out a problem with the front panel jack.

I can hear sound through both front and rear, the mic level doesn't move on either front or rear.

When I unmute the mic under speakers


Can hear myself on both front and back. When muted, no acknowledgment from the mic at all.

Mute it again under Playback unless you want to hear yourself and any other sound in the room.

I did. I also ran the troubleshoot for audio recording and it says it could not detect a problem

have you ruled out the mic itself as a problem? Try a different mic or a different computer?
