Go to control panel / sounds and audio properties/( can you move the volume button?) if so then click the advanced button there and then on that window click options then properties then select the recording button and make sure that the microphone box is checked and anything else that you want to use for recording then click ok and select the microphone when the window comes up with the volume controls and check boxes for each device that you want to choose from to record( only one device can be selected

hope this is worth a fixya as all other ratings hurt our scoring

    then you did not install the drivers and that rating is abuse! so i guess you don't really want help

  • jason Nov 28, 2008

    I will report this as abuse , because you are not giving enough info on what you have done or what your computer says about the drivers or anything but" all blanked out ", and that means there is no driver or no audio device or your device just don't work anymore , so do you want help or not?

  • jason Nov 28, 2008

    do you have a software program for it like real tek audio , ac97 ? because that is what will let you control the audio jacks on the computer , go to control panel and click system then hardware tab then device manager and look under sound video and game controllers , is there a yellow exclamation mark next to any of the audio? and is there a audio software program listed there also?

    and please change the rating as that is insulting when I am trying to help you get the audio properties correct for the microphone and line in

  • jason Nov 28, 2008

    also what is the name of the audio device that is in your computer?

  • jason Nov 28, 2008

    is this the audio software drivers for your acer that you have downloaded?

    Realtek Audio Driver vA3.85

  • jason Nov 28, 2008

    also driver detective only detects for drivers not the audio software

  • jason Nov 28, 2008

    also make sure that the boxes in the audio properties playback option has the boxes for the mic and line in check or you will not be able to use it untill they are checked in the box

  • jason Nov 28, 2008

    you will also have to do this for the recording options

Why I reinstalled Win XP on my PC(MB chip Intel E7205/82801DB), but Audio function didn't work?

Windows may not have the driver for your audio card or your volume is muted. If you go to Device Manager see if the Audio card is installed or has an exclamation point - if the latter, them you will need to locate the driver software from the manufacturer to install and get it running.

Does the receiver have an audio out to connect to a pc.

Your PC's sound card may not be a lot unlike any other audio device. It might even have a dgital input. Only YOU can tell.

Standard PC Microphone input would accept any Line Level from any standard audio device. Your sound controls would adjust its volume.

Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7



In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.

Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.

Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).

NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same applies for Internal mic.

That should be it.

To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.

You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

I have TX-SR503 onkyo receiver. I want to connect a microphone to it so that I can do a karaoke. The unit does not have a socket for microphone. It has a socket for phones. This socket does not appear...

The reason that jack doesn't work for a microphone is because it's a headphone jack. It's meant to send a signal out to headphones, and it doesn't work as an input. If the receiver doesn't have a microphone input jack (and it would be clearly labeled as such), you'll need to connect your mike through the auxiliary input. You may be able to connect with nothing more than an adapter to switch from the plug on the end of the mike cable to the RCA jacks on your receiver. The output level on some mikes may be high enough to drive the auxiliary input as-is. More likely, though, the mike will need a little boost to make it work with the receiver. The receiver needs a "line-level" input, which is higher than the output of most good-quality mikes. To get the mike up to line level you'll need a microphone preamp. There are many types from many sources, at a wide range of prices. Here's one I have used as an example.

You might also want to look for a small mixer like this. The mixer would let you combine your mike and music source into a single line-level output you could run to the receiver, and use the receiver just for the amplifier function.

My acer aspire 5920 is making alot of noise the built in microphone does not seem to turn off

ok i had the same problem up until today and i found a post on a site that really helped me out i had this problem for about two months and was very close the sending it into acers repair center but all it was, was a setting in the audio manager ok here is what you need to do go to control panel, then go to hardware and sound, and then go to manage audio devices under sound then go to recording then click on microphone and go to properties, then go to levels and you should see two settings microphone volume and and microphone boost if your microphone boost is set to +20 which it prolly is just slide it down to zero and wow your problem is fixed. Im not really sure what program might change this setting but acer should really check into it and your system shouldnt let programs change things such as this cause this is a very important setting for having a wonderful entertainment experience. well i hope this helps and all the credit here goes to original poster at
