Mike seems to have gone dead for some reason?

Running XP, AVG, Zone Alarm, (all updated)
I have been using my mike for skykpe and recording without problems up until yesterday. I have been installing Mozilla thunderbird and configuring Gmail as IMAP and SMTP (I can't see why this should affect the mike- but this is the only changes I have made to the system with a few port changes for the email client).I have been through all the trouble shooting and have checked the Sound settings and all seems to be set correctly. I have tried the troubleshooter and tried to record on the sound recorder - no Joy. I have tried a different mike - no joy. Would be grateful for any suggestions, or does it indicate my sound card is on the blink

Right click Sound Icon in System tray Near Clock, Properties Go to Options Recording tick the correct box

Thanks for the effort but I did say in the original message I have checked all the boxes/settings

Yes but thought you may have missed that one, Have you tried Uninstalling the sound in Device Manager Then Restart Comp

It may have a yellow Icon saying Drivers not installed etc

Thanks I will give it a go, and report back

Done that, but no joy I am afraid. The device manager and properties report that it is working, so I went through the trouble shooter doing more or less what I did before without any luck. Unless you have any other ideas, it looks terminal to me.

Have you tried Restore to a older date it may work

One other thing to try, as I had Problems with sound once. It was a Bad Jack plug try wiggling the jack while testing it
