After hours of research, I finally found a solution to the problem (I have an onboard realtek soundcard on Windows Vista 64bit). Go to Control Panel -> Sound -> Playback (NOT RECORDING) and select 'Properties' for your SPEAKERS. Then, select 'Levels' and unmute your microphone. This worked perfectly for me. Found the solution here:

Let me know if this solved anyone else's problem.

Its good that Windows vista multimedia and microphones issues are resolved....


KCVI: when I follow these steps described in the pictures, I do not see any microphone level controls like those in the picture. The only controls I see are "Realtek HD audio output" and "PC beep".

I heard that Vista disables it by default somehow, and theres a way (which i do not know with Realtek) to solve this. Anybody?


I have a hp pavillion dv9618ca using vista 32. I have the same problem, mic not playing through the speaker. I tried the regedit to no avail. I did not see any phrase to enable the mic on playback or any similar phase construing the same meaning.

So far, I spent 40 hours tring to enable the mic to appear on the playback speaker level to no avail.

I need your kind assistance.
