Sytem basics: XP home, ASUS A7V333 motherboard, Athlon 2100, N'Vidia 4600 graphics and Audigy Soundblaster live sound card, Audigy Inspire 5300 speakers.
I've tried all the threads regarding microphones/headphones, but still no joy. I've tried front and back (card, plus board) sockets. All enabled in XP/Audigy management tools. No sound mutes on, volumes turned up, etc. Microphone works - but only through sound card, not motherboard or front PC sockets. Front USB sockets work fine. No sound when plugged direct into DVD Rom, cannot test CD Rom direct cos of case design blocking socket.
Oh, headphones work - when PC powered up it tells me its strarting through them when plugged into sound card, but thereafter I cannot hear anything. All other sound through speakers is fine.
I've not opened up the PC, its only a couple of months old and I'm concerned about warrenty issues.
