Default ATH-ADG1 + Xonar DGX - Mic not working

What a frustrating evening... just spent the last 4 hours trying to troubleshoot why the mic isn't working in my brand new headset. I have the black and pink 3.5mm plugs from the and mic connected to the green and pink connections in the back of my sound card. I've tried all sorts of configurations and all i can get from the mic is the tiniest bit of sound if i yell into my mic. Have tried re-installing (numerous time) the sound drivers with no success. Not sure what i'm doing wrong... and am completely out of ideas. What a way to kill the excitement of a new headset...

Edit: I tried the USB DAC that came with the headset aswell, same problem, sound is fine, mic is very very very soft.

Has anyone here had any similar issues with this soundcard? I know it's not the headset as it works perfectly when i plug it into my phone (headphones and mic). I suspect there is a setting somewhere that I have neglected causing me this problem. I've disabled onboard sound as well.

Thanks snuf, I'm really beginning to think it is a windows 7 audio driver issue. I will reinstall latest Realtek drivers when I get home.

Computers are jerks, man. This is one of the reasons I got out of computers and into headphones.

So the headphone/mic works on the laptop. Definitely a driver issue i reckon. Reinstalled the Realtek drivers and still no go

try completely removing the drivers you currently have installed and having a crack at these

when installing, make sure to read up on the different install types to best suit your usage... low latency, which control panel, etc...

I'd remove everything sound related, disable Realtek in the BIOS etc... then start from scratch with the drivers I linked and see how you go

So disable onboard sound in bios, uninstall Xonar and Realtex, then install the Uni Xonar drivers? Will do that now
