    Hello everyone, hope this doesnt sound to much like a noob question but here goes. I have just had to reformat my pc because of some little darlings dumping some nasty little devils into it :mad: But have it all up and running now with no troubles except for this. The microphone jack in the front of my machine no longer seems to excist :eek: It worked before the reformat but not now. When i go to sound and recording properties it only shows the mic jack at the rear of my machine. Anyone got any ideas where i went wrong.

    Oh its a Dell pc running vista home premium.

    What is your sound card name? If it is Realtek on recent pc, try to change Front Panel Inputs > HD Audio to AC'97 on the bios settings.
