    VIA HD Audio microphone not working

    So, after fruitless attempts at fixing the issue using other people threads I've decided to create my own.

    I'm one of those unlucky to be bugged by sound issues after an upgrade to Win10 from Win7.
    My Siberia v2 headset microphone doesn't work.

    What I've tried:

    1) Updating the VIA HD drivers, including the latest pack for Win10 (the one that marks your devices with (Win10)).
    2) Lowering (and increasing) the bits and sampling rate
    3) Installing the older drivers in compatibility mode. The one for Win7 gave me a blue screen and failed to install, Win 8.1 drivers made no difference, mic still didn't work.
    4) Installing the generic Windows high definition audio device drivers. No difference.

    The new driver pack from VIA still fails to set the correct device as default, enabling 'Headset' from the front panel which isn't even connected inside. Now, the 'speakers' option enables the audio playback, but microphone is still unresponsive. It behaves strangely, sometimes the volume indicator seems to be picking up noises, but it lasts only for a few moments after which there's nothing. Obviously, I've checked the micro on another PC and it works fine.

    UPDATE: for everyone interested/sharing similar problems - it fixed itself today with me doing absolutely nothing about it. All the drivers are the same version (newest one), I didn't even receive any new windows updates after the 29.08. So whatever it is - it was in that last cumulative update for Windows or maybe even in update for some other device.
