Audio stops working when using microphone!

Hello guys !
I have a problem for 2 years , my audio stops working when i plugin and use the microphone , it's really annoying me , when i play games , when i talk on skype , etc.. it just randomly stops after an amount of time! My motherboard is Intel DP55WB and i use Realtek audio drivers. I tried many stuff to fix it but it's no use, nothing works.
Please , I really need your help.

What happens if you use the Rear mic connection instead of the front panel mic connection? If you haven't tried this, do it as there may be some type of connection problem either in the motherboard audio connector or the cabling or connector on the front panel of the case. Also, disconnect the front panel audio cable (unplug it from the motherboard) and then use the rear Mic jack and see if it makes a difference.

I have an Intel DP35DP motherboard and had a problem with the front panel audio on the PC I built and it turned out to be a problem with the front panel headphone/mic I/O board in my case.

I use only the rear mic connection because i don't have the front panel mic connection on my carcass.

EDIT : I'll try to see if there are some problems in the cabling.

I have the same exact problem when i plug my new Razer Kraken Pro(world of tanks addition)AUX and MIC jack in my front panel it works fine if i watch videos browse youtube
But once I play dota 2 after 10 min the sound complete cuts out and pulled off my headphone from front panel jack my speakers does not produce a sound but only the speaker bar it shows sound is produce everytime is clicked.
Then all my videos or music becomes jerky and does not play sound and only way to fix it is to restart it my PC

I thought it was realtek audio driver issue so uninstalled it and try to run the game again the cut out still happens. bought a new graphics R9 280 to replace HD5770 the old one, because I thought it could be the cause of jerky motion in the video player, but it the cut out still happens . disabled the AMD HD audio in device managers still same isssue. disabled all other device in sound still happens.

I'm out of ideas of what to do besides having to

Operating system
Windows 7 64bit

My PC specs are
i5 750 2.6Ghz
DP55WB motherboard
R9 280 sapphire graphics
12GB DDR3 Ram
CoolerMaster RC-K350-KWN1 K350 USB3.0 Gaming case

case has USB 3.0 for one of the front panel and i bought and adaptor off ebay to convert USB3 plug to USB 2.0 and plug into Mobo extra note if that really does influence it.. but i high doubt

Gigabyte Kforce keyboard
Razer Deathadder
Razer Kraken (Headphones) AUX jack and Mic Jack (NOT USB)
Speaker Logitech X-530

Tempted for a reformat of windows 7.. but dont know if that would solve the issue
