        Thanks for the info and advice.  When I find out what a BIOS is I will 
try a plug-in card and hope that solves the problem.

  Getting the same from new cans rules out the headset.  It's possible the 
contacts on the inside of the mic. socket have become damaged and not 
connecting, if so then replacing the socket is extremely difficult and not 
advised.  A better solution would be to disable the onboard sound and replace 
it with a plug-in sound card as Frank suggests.

   

  Before that though, try re-installing the soundcard drivers, sometimes it can 
reset an errant software flag in the system.  This is especially true when 
these types of problems follow software updates.

   

  While doing this, check if there is a newer version of the drivers on the 
motherboard manufacturers site rather than use the ones on the CD that came 
with the mobo.

  It is beginning to sound like your sound card mic input is duff, or the the 
card, or onboard sound system itself.

   

  Not unusual for mic's to go AWOL, I had to replace a good headset because of 
a duff mic, pity as the phones were really comfortable.

   

  2 duff mics point to this.

   

  If you are using onboard sound, then get a soundcard and bung it in (disable 
the onboard first in your BIOS.

    I have for some time used the following headphones, Canyon CN-HS1. On 
Wednesday evening last I found the mic would not work so I unplugged them and 
replugged them in which then brought up an MSI tic box. It asked the following 
questions;

    Line in.        Line out.

    Mic out.       Rear speaker out.

    Headphone.  Centre subwoofer speaker out.

    Side speaker out.

    I ticked Headphone only which then brought up an insert in the main box 
called Analog Back Panel showing three plugin points marked Blue Green Pink.  
The Pink point was flashing, this is the Mic connector, at this point I assumed 
the Headphones where u/s.

    Today I bought new Headphones of the same make, tried them with the same 
results, no Mic.  I have had no problems listening to music or voice on both 
sets of Headphones.

    If there is anyone who could give me some advice on how to sort this 
problem I would be most grateful

    Regards   

                   Thomas
