Microphone stopped working on a Sound Blaster Live!

    Well I've no idea if anyone still reads this group but I'm going to
    take a swing at asking my question here. I've never had sound card
    problems and thus I've no idea what I am doing. I use a headset and
    microphone for gaming as well as voice/singing recording for a karaoke
    type website. One day my mic is working dandy - next day nothing will
    come out of it. I am unable to get it to work in Ventrilo (which I
    use for games) or on the other site SingShot. Figured the mic died so
    I plugged in another headset and got the same results. Creative Labs
    no longer updates for my sound card so I went and got the original
    disk and restored everything back to it's defaults. Nothing.

    When I look at my Sound Control Panel I've Line-In and Microphone as
    muted under Playback and Microphone selected under Recording. No
    matter what I set these settings at, If I close the control panel and
    do something else, the settings revert back to what they were to begin
    with. At this point, I don't know what the settings SHOULD be. All
    tests run show ok/normal it's just that my damn mic is not picking up
    any sound!

    I used it one night, turned the computer off, went to sleep and 8
    hours later woke up - turned on the comp and the mic no longer
    worked. If anyone is out there. I sure would love some input.
    Thanks much

    Actually - It's a Sound Blaster Live 5.1. Am running some Auto Update
    at the moment.
