My sound card is generic and not great for audio recording
I'm a musician that travels A LOT, so I don't have the luxury of a home studio. I have to rely on my portable. I love my laptop (Acer Aspire 5920), but to record music on my professional recording software is a nightmare. The on-board sound card is a Realtek, which "techies" say is only good for a decent, generic playback and not recommended for high quality recording. Is it possible to upgrade my sound card? I need this really bad!

No! the sound card is build-in on the motherboard. unless you wan tot change the motherboard. ever that you would bot get a better audio.
you will not get a better hardware for laptop. the best thing you can do is get a decent audio software to compensate the hardware

You are going to need a special sound card with an input either MIDI or line in audio. Then you will use a Digital Recorder Software program like Propeller Head Reason. Which will produce the sound recording so you can replay it. There is a lot more to doing this. As far as the PC not recognizing the device in question here. You will have to install the driver and software for that device. John
1) Turn on your mic
2) Start windows sound recorder
3) Start recording
4) Jam out on your instrument(s)
5) Stop recording
In truth, this is a terrible device to record music on. You should look into getting a mixer (with as many tracks as you need) and a dedicated computer with a high quality sound card (M-Audio) is a good brand.
If you're thinking about making electronic music, look into FL Studio. http://flstudio.image-line.com/

Try using Musicmatch Jukebox,it`s a great program for this and doesnt cost much..has to be pro version to record.You can choose both line and mic stereo recording as well as burn audio cd`s...lots of great features...good luck:)
Well...depending on what your doing you can set the audio to be recorded from the mic, if your using a chat program you need to start an integrated voice/video chat. if your recording video for a home movie, youll have to change the audio preferences in whatever program you are using to utilize that mic. anmy extra info on exactly what your using it for would be a great help :)
If you jiggle the cable and it starts working, then you probably have a cold or broken solder connection on the audio jack. The sound card is not a card but integrated into the motherboard. You could have a technician re-solder the connections on the motherboard but if that doesn’t work the motherboard will have to be replaced.
