Well atleast your mic works! Alot of people have problems with the mic, and get no help (maybe because there is nothing anyone can do?), including me, and I've had the problem since I first tried plugging in the mic, about a month ago. I even bought a new mic to rule that out.

You said you have it working in front and rear jacks...but I thought there was only 1 input for it? Hmm..maybe I'll have to look again, and maybe mine will atleast work in the other one.

finally i got my mic to work properly.......i disabled the onboard in bios and bought an audigy sound blaster 4...hooked it up and from the get go it worked perfectly.....i may be stupid but i would say the onboard module sucks for the dfi, and notice noone on the board offers any help for the mic problem, that might tell you something,

sorry to bump this up the list but i have found how to possibly fix this issue having had the same problem with a non working mic

 

Under Master Control Panel for sound (dbl click the windows sound icon)

if not already shown hit Options>Advanced Settings

 

this should give you a extra button called Advanced under the master volume control

click that button!

 

there should be two check boxes

1. Rear Speakers connected to Line in

2. Center speaker and subwoofer connected to Microphone

 

Uncheck the 2nd option

this will return control of the mic plug so that it can be used as a mic plug :nod:

 

Hope this helps

 

this was tested on the DFI Lanparty UT nF4 SLI-DR eXpert board. Happy talking

 

 

also to stop talking to yourself thro the mic under the main page in the Master control panel the initial screen shows all play back options (eg sound played thro the speakers) should be a listing of the mic if you mute this it will stop play back of the mic input. If the option is not there you can add it via the Options>properties and selecting the mic to be displayed.
