Windows 7: No audio recording device

11 Jan 2011   #1

No audio recording device

I am running the following motherboard: Asus AT3GC-I which has the VIA VT 1705 6 -Channel High-Definition Audio CODEC device.

Windows does not find the microphone. When I connect a logitech webcam, the camera and mic show in device manager but the MIC is not shown under "Recording Devices"

I have tried almost every driver imaginable. Any Idea what are my other options?

Take a look at the "recording" tab of your sound control panel.

I'm guessing you don't see "microphone" there.

Right click anywhere in the white space within that tab.

Put a checkmark beside "show disconnected devices" and "show disabled devices".

Does microphone now show up?
