Done as said skidzy but still dont work. I have tried another headset and mic and they dont work either so it cant be a faulty mic. I did notice after running the test hardware wizard that the entries in the registry reset themselves to zero.

Once you changed the values via the registry did you reboot...if so,i have no idea why the registry is resetting to zero.
I will carry on trying to find a solution Daz.

Good luck

Thanks and I did reboot.

I did also reload sound card drivers.

This seems a common problem with no solution found at the moment.... there seems to be a lot said about the accelorater or slider being set to zero,found this...but i think it refers to the last link really.

[email protected]© Just a thought,have you checked device manager for any yellow exclaimation marks ?..i know you said you have reloaded the drivers but have they been updated.

Also could you state the maker/model of the sound card please.

Silly question now...have you tried system restore ?

  [DELETED] 20:07 14 May 2006

To when? And in the past whenever I have tried system restore its never worked for some reason.

Can you tell when it worked last time ok,maybe worth a try.
I have come across a fair bit of info regarding the latest directx that is needed for audio.The latest version is direct x 9 April i believe. click here

I would hazzard a guess you already have this though.
