M1330 microphone works in diagnostics but not in Windows 7
Basically, my M1330 microphone stoped working recently after I installed Windows 7. I have made several changes to my computer recently so I am unsure of what caused it. When I reinstall or update the driver (the Sigma one I am using says its current) BOTH my sound and microphone stop working and I have to do a system restore to get my sound back. On top of that...when i do the F12 boot diagnostics MY MIC WORKS! I am lost.
I recently got a new motherboard because my video card stoped working. That same week I upgraded to windows 7.
I have tried MANY things suggested by people on this site...but any time I change or reinstall my audio driver I lose my sound. I have googled...and surfed for answers but have come up with nothing that works. Is there some windows setting that I have to change because I have a new motherboard?
Additional hints * When I go to Recording devices and click on the device and go to the Listen tab, I click on "Listen to this Device" and try to click "OK" but the menu won't close. Or if I try to click Configure...nothing pops up.
Is there something I should run to point my windows software to my new motherboard...I think all my issues are related to software trying to point to a board with another serial number (or IP address...I don't know.) I have some random other issue where there is a red X over my wireless signal indicator in the lower right of my screen even though I have an active connection to my internet.
