I will assume that you tried the Asus web site? They seem to have quite a full driver base already - also, most Mic drivers are part of the audio card drivers.

How long ago did you 'loose' the Mic? And have you tried a system restore to prior to that date (even if you deleted it)? Deleted drivers will be restored (unless you physically removed it permanently) with a system restore.

Also, have you checked that the Mic you are using is actually working? And have you made sure that the Mic has not been muted on the sound controller?

the mic actually isnt working, i deleted it some months ago so a system restore is out of the question but you say perhaps reinstalling my sound drivers will fix this?

Ummm... not so fast - not having this beastie before me, the question arises - is this a built-in mic or just a jack?

As for an answer, it depends. If its a built-in, then it should show up in the device manager, and you could ask for a new driver there (via 'search the web'). If it's only a jack, then it's probably part of the sound card drivers. If your audio is working, again I would check the volume control and make sure it is not muted.

If is is a plug-in type mic, what type of jack is it using?

If it's built in, that's the best thing to do.

Also, you might want to check the Sounds and Audio Devices link in your Control Panel to see if the mic is showing up there. This also where you can check on all your drivers and codecs needed for audio work.
