    Been having this problem with my realtek and my microphone, first of all, just wanted to say I put this in both the hardware and software forums because I'm not too sure which one it belongs to =/

    Anyway I'm using Windows XP black, which is just like professional. Running it on an Acer Aspire 5920g

    I bought a 5 dollar microphone with a stand the other day, I plugged it into my laptop, which worked for awhile. Then it stopped, then it worked again then it didn't.

    I use realtek HD audio manager for my laptop, and I updated the driver, which worked for it, then stopped the next time I tried to use it.

    Problem is, when I plug in my mic, the realtek HD audio manager pops up, which means it detects that something is plugged in, but does not recognize it as a microphone, this would be my due to my microphone being spoiled but on several occasions, it does detect my microphone as a microphone so I'm totally stumped as to what the problem is.

    And if someone knows how to use a program or manually turn off the microphone that is built into the screen of my laptop, that info would be appreciated =)
