What jack? Motherboard? I don't think so. As I said, it captures my headset
sound as you personally experienced yesterday evening. When testing,
it makes noise when turning on/off the mike from the headset. It must be
some setting fault. I don't want to format my PC now, it works fine :D

So when you speak in to the microphone you do not see any green bars moving?
If not this suggests somehow the sound it not transferred to your motherboard and like Feld suggests this could mean a damaged jack port.
Your headset uses only one jack for both sound and mic? Do you have jack ports at both the front panel and back of the pc? Did you try both?

Also check to see if you have actually activated and not disabled the right device with right clicking :



BTW, I have also realtek onboard audio and one of it's jack ports got broken too, even if the jack was never removed or under pressure sp it can happen "spontaneously" (it was center channel for 5.1) and am now using a standalone soundcard I still had laying around)
There seems to be a way to remap your jack ports but I am not sure every port can also deal with a microphone signal.

I used to have two jack ports and 2 USB ports in Front. I disabled the
jacks some time this year because of the poor quality of microphone
and sound. I do have separate cables for mike and sound.

Everything is enabled, not muted. The mike does pick up the sound
I play in my headset, but not my voice. I very rarely plug/unpluged
the microphone jack in the back.

I see a new sound around 10 Euros like this:





It would be useful since it has USB and I could connect it to the front USB pannel :)

Problem is that what if something has gone wrong on the software side :D

Maybe this is the problem. What if you reconnect them?

Why? They were removed completely. I had some wire coming from near the
jacks on the motherboard. I even throw them away because the front panel
jacks were bad quality. I don't know if you remember when I pluged in a flash
drive, the sound it made was awful because of the front pannel. I was hearing
that sound in my headset and also my mike was outputting the sound.

Now I even damaged one of the front pannel jacks because there was a problem
with the sound/headset jack. When I pluged it it, it had some kind of slack. It was
moving too much in there, so I opened the front panel and wanted to modify the
sound jack to make it tighter. What I did was with a hot piece of metal I cut around
the jack case to somehow tighten it's metalic rim. I did that, but it didn't work and
I somehow screwed the microphone jack which was working bad already.

I would purchase the USB sound card right now, but some say it's very good,
sounds a lot better than any motherboard soundcard but the problem is that
the USB soundcard is made of cheap plastic etc. I will check for some reviews
and later go out in town to see if I find anything. I would also like to find some
extension for my jacks. The headset has only 1.5 meters, I would've needed
2 meters of wire. It's good for when I sit on the chair normally for play and typing,
but when I lay back on the chair, it's too short :D

I just wonder if your current headphone jack port is actually connected to your soundcard / motherboard.
But I guess your mic worked before in the configuration you are now using?
