I recently lost my hard drive because of either a virus or malware and installed a new h/d with a clean installation of XP Pro. Since the new install, I’m having a problem with my sounds. The speakers, computer sounds CD & DVD sound works, but when I plug an external source into the mic jack the sound will only work sporadically and only then when I open control panel > sounds and audio devices > properties > voice tab > test hardware, and only then after I click through the welcome to the Sound Hardware Test Wizard > let the Testing Sound Hardware screen load at which point I can see input on the Recording meter but there’s still no sound; but if I click on “next” again I’ll often get the “Playback” meter to register and sound will come out. I’ve checked the sliders on the Master Volume and they’re all set at their highest level and nothings set to mute. Does the mic input need a special driver? If so, any suggestions? If not, does anyone have any ideas as to my problem? Thanks!
