Default Microphone and Headphones don't work in Vista

First day with using Vista and already got some problems with it.

Firstoff some computer specs.

MSI P35 Neo Motherboard
Creative Labs SB Audigy soundcard
Sentry Stereo Dynamic Headphones 880CD
A Mic seperate from the headset, no name.
Plugs on the side and back of the computer for mic/headphones, I'v tried them all.

I think it's a problem with vista or maybe the motherboard, I'v googled the problem and haven't been able to find a clear answer to this but plenty of others seem to have it.

What should I do to get the mic and headphones working?

Vista has known audio problems some sound cards are not even supported. Try getting the updated driver.

I'v already tried updating the drivers, but it says there are no updates for the soundcard and motherboard, what else can I do?

Am going into uncharted waters here, once I go into the BIOS during startup, what exactly will I be doing?

First time am going into the BIO, any advice appreciated.

check the manufacturer's website for a BIOS update, not the BIOS itself.

There should be a utility to make a bootable disk to flash the bios. Check manufacture web site like already stated.

Couple questions first, what will I be trying to do by flashing the BIOS, what should I be looking for or change in the BIOS, and do you have any suggestions for somebody that has never done it before?
