I had the same problem ... I lost of lot of time finding what it was !
I don't know if it the same for you, but in case :
click on speaker icon
then look on tab in for your micro and check it's on right option :)
for me it was installed on front but I am using rear, changing front 
with rear everything went ok !!!
I can tell you i spend a lot of time to find this out !!! But i had 
formerly a pc working with front so i checked and it was it !
So maybe you have the same problem ?
