Im looking for someone who is used to dealing with Socket 7's for some advise.
I have a socket 7 motheboard therefore I know the SB is built into the motherboard, the trouble is, the disk they provide you with which in my case is verion 3 has loads and loads of different drivers split in
D:\Sound\Soundpro\old\*.*
D:\Sound\Soundpro\new\*.*
 which all seem to work but my Microphone will not record but the sound works.
Is there any way of knowing which driver on the socket 7 CD suits your motherboard, I have Windows 95.
However the microphone does work because it comes out with sound through my speakers.

Any ideas of how you can tell please let me know

socket 7 refers to the microprocesso, and has nothing to do with the sound or any other peripheral devices, if you could give some ID of the mainboard, or the sound chip that is on it, possible to narrow down the issue.

> How can i tell what Socket 7 it is

Turn your monitor on, and let it warm up.
Then, turn your system-unit on,
and be ready to press SHIFT+PAUSE on your keyboard.
Look for a line like:
 01/01/98 -- 430VX -- EQ1234SB12
near the bottom of the screen.
Press that key-combination,
to "freeze" the screen, and record that ID string.

Press the "any" key to continue.

Socket7 is one of a seried of ZIF (zero insertion force) designed to hold the microprocessor, if you pop the case and look at the socket the microprocessor is plugged into, it will be either blue (usually socket3) or white, on one edge of the socket you will see,,,,,,,,,,, SOCKET 3, 5, 7.

Is there something you want to do to your computer that wants or needs a "socket7" socket.

The drivers are under SOUND\PCI SOUNDPRO\WIN95-98\DRV. After installing the driver, go back to the SOUND\PCI SOUNDPRO\WIN95-98\APP and install . You will now have the audiorack and others to play and record.
Then check in Control panel\multimedia --under audio , that a recording device is selected.

Did you check--- start\ settings\control panel\   double click on Multimedia-- and under Audio there is a box for Recording device. Click on the arrowhead next to it and select a device. Try a recording. If it does not work, go over the steps and select another device(if available).
Do not forget to double click on the speaker icon in system tray, and see that nothing is muted.

This problem may be simpler than it looks.  I noticed you said that the sound comes right out through your speakers; that usually indicates that the microphone is plugged into the "Line In" jack, and not the microphone jack.  Double-check your connection, and you may have an answer.
