I have Windows XP Home edition 2002 SP 3, and Realtek AC97 sound. Speakers work o.k., but microphone doesn't. I have tried different microphones, both jacks in front and rear. Searched for updated drivers (none), etc. All trouble shooting tests show "Device working properly".

Make sure nothing is muted in Voice playback & Voice recording, set the volume sliders to max.

Johnw - Nothing was muted, but I looked at those links you sent me and it gave me some ideas. So I went through everything again, and finally found two mic boosts under Microphone Volume control/advanced. I clicked only the first boost and it started working o.k. Thanks so much for your help!
