Realtek ac97 microphone problems

  MANDYJIM 20:17 23 Sep 2005

I have just completed assembling a pc and I have come across a problem I cannot solve. The motherboard is an EPoX intel i848p with onboard realtek ALC-655 selectable 2 or 6-ch audio CODEC (AC97v2.3 compliant). I have two speakers and one sub woofer connected to green socket, a tv card connected to blue socket and a microphone connected to pink socket. The speakers and tv card work fine but I cannot get the microphone to work. I have tried sound effects on task bar, then into sound manager, then into connector sensing after starting the test it shows an exclamation mark alongside the speakers connected to green and microphone connected to pink. When I press correction on speakers and highlight speaker it doesnt change the icon and the microphone correction button is greyed out. Any ideas please.........Jim
