Lost Microphone

by vgraybeard / August 19, 2011 1:28 PM PDT

I have 32 bit XP and lost the microphone controls. VIA '97 Controller(WDM) and/ or MPU-401 Compatable MIDI Device seem to be the problem though "trouble shooting" says every thing is working properly. I can't get to the advanced controls. Thanks in advance.

Use it fast before any one tries other repairs.

That is why it was the first thing I tried. Also tried reloading drivers.

Then given only these details you can post the full machine description in the right forum and hope folk offer more ideas or replace the failed devices.
