mic not working

I am using windows 7 for past 3 thinks, i am happy that it has no issues until two days before. Suddenly my mic stopped working both in front and rear. I dont know what happened and i even changed the mic, but still no use. I tried downloading the latest driver from intel(mobo: DG31 PR) but no use. I dont know what to do. Please help me guys. I tried all settings in the control panel and high definition sound manager that comes with realtek driver.

Can you see your green bar levels moving for your Mic input? Also provide a snipit of your record properties/mic properties.

I had the same problem, I've managed to fix it by removing the sound device from device manager, the machine then rebooted. Once restarted Windows automatically installed it's own sound drivers. After that it worked fine.
