My mic doesnt work

Hello all,

As the title says, my mic doesnt work! Yesterday is worked perfectly then i reset my computer and it stopped working.
WHen i press my push to talk key in Teamspeak people hear there self and even hear the music i am playing through my headset, but they cant hear me. I did almost everything i can found on the internet.

- Used the correct "holes".
- CHeck if its muted somewhere
- DOwnloaded newest drivers
- Check the entire sound page and tried everything!

additional information:

- I got like 6/7 lines in noted at my recording devices and they are all not plugged in.
- When i go to speaker > properties > levels there isnt a microphone there.
- use windows 7 btw.
- it also doesnt work @ windows sound recorder.

If you could help me i would be very gratefull!
ANd if you need anything else, just ask!!

Exactly what did you do to "reset" the computer?

Also please fill in the "My System Specs". It helps us to try and help users.

Try a System Restore back to an available restore date that is BEFORE the problem.

System Restore can be accessed from Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools. System Restore will not delete any user data, e-mails, etc.

Some stuff you can try if you have not already done so.

Test microphone on different computer.

Reinstall TeamSpeak 3 application.

Check out this video, see if anything in there helps.

- Microphone isnt the problem
- I dont think Teamspeak is the problem, cause like i said: Windows recorder also doesnt work and people can hear my music in teamspeak.

Any1 else has some ideas?
