View Full Version : MSI P6N Diamond Mic Level Problem

12-27-07, 11:41 AM
Hello all. I reviewed this motherboard about a month or two ago and I just had to consults the gurus here about a problem. This motherboard has on-board X-Fi BTW. I wanna use my mic for TF2 and CoD4, but even though I have the volume levels all the way up for "Line In", "Microphone", and "What U Hear", my mic is still silent. I checked my headset and it works on my laptop so my headset is fine. I also checked both Windows Volume Control and Creative's software but everything is maxed out.

Is this common with X-Fi's in XP or is it just me? Anybody got any suggestions?

This might not be any help but go to control panel, sound , recording and right click on microphone and set to default device. Thats what I had to do. Never really used a mic before.

microphone boost needs to be enabled in the windows sound panel.

microphone boost needs to be enabled in the windows sound panel.

Where is that located? I've looked everywhere and I can't find that option but I know I've seen it before. One thing I noticed is that every recording option has "Advanced" grayed out. I have the latest X-Fi drivers from MSI's website but it's grayed out for some reason, almost like it's not installed at all. I'll try to reinstall the drivers.
