I've had this problem for a few weeks now, but really it's becoming a burden. Anyone I've asked about this hasn't been able to give me a straight answer. I had been having problems with my sound randomly cutting out on me; restarting would bring it back, but still, it was really annoying. I was told that I should uninstall my audio drivers and then have the system restore them, in case they had corrupted. Well, since I did that, I've noticed that neither my microphone or head phone ports have been working (thankfully I use a USB mic). I've tried three different sets of headphones, but nothing has helped.
What do I do? How can I fix this, since it makes recording rather difficult if I can't have any kind of audio feeding through without it leaking through my speakers and to my microphone.
