Default Microphone problem

Hi there,

I have a problem using my microphone with Vista. This seems to be a common issue after googling for solutions, none of which work for me. I even had a Microsoft support agent take control of my laptop today and he couldn't fix it. If I go to start>accessories>sound recorder, then I am able to record sound perfectly fine, but without video. However if I try to use the Vista voice recognition setup, it detects no sound through the mic, and when trying use youtubes quickcapture function to film me playing a song, the webcam picks up the visuals, but the sound from my mic is very quiet, muffled and distorted, like this:


All the mic/sound/recording settings are as they should be, but I cannot record myself playing. Does anyone know how to sort this problem out?

Thanks in advance :-)
