couple of things to check - windows privacy settings (Start > Settings > Privacy > Microphone) and check the setting for "allow apps to access your mic" then under "Choose which apps can access your mic" select what apps can access it.

If that does not work, you may have a driver issue so in your device manager (right-click on the start button and select "device manager" expand the "sound, video and game controllers" and remove the Realtek device, and also uninstall the Realtek application. Download the latest version from Asus for your board then reboot and reinstall.
