About a week ago, I reformatted my computer. Everything that had to do with my sound was working excellently at that point.

I am currently using Realtek ALC850 Ac'97 on a ASUS A8V Deluxe mobo. After reformatting, I reinstalled the drivers. I discovered something new:the audio controller in sounds and audio devices was different. it now reads "HD Audio Render" and "HD Audio Capture". I opened the sound configuration utility that comes with the CD and got an error message:"EQ Initial fail!!!"


Now under the general tab, It says I have no audio controller and no audio codec. However the sound works fine. The MICROPHONE does not work at all. It worked perfectly before and now it doesn't work.

Help please.

Edit:It's plugged in correctly, i've tested the headset on another computer. I am convinced the problem is in the driver. I also noticed a new driver I didn't have before(to my knowledge) under the device manager for sound and audio controllers--Microsoft UAA Function driver for high definition audio-adi 1986

ALC850 Ac'97 is for XP 64-bit version. That could be the problem
I would try the second one

Leave that one alone. You need it for High-Definition

Thank you for the fast reply, but after installing that driver it still does not work. Same problems.

Try the 3rd one
You did remove the first one, correct?

no, but i also have no idea how. i found a realtek ac'97 in my add/remove program list and tried to uninstall it but I get a catastrophic failure and the uninstall does not finish.

3rd download is just the program that comes with realtek audio, it's not a driver or codec.
