Question about Logitech (980240-0403) Microphone

2 Answers

Not acknowleging We bought a microphone last year and realised it didn't work on this computer but because it was cheap we went and bought a logitech desktop one. And still it isn't acknowledging any microphone on the computer at all.. It is Windows XP Pro. Is it the computer do you think or are the settings not correct? Please can you tell me what settings should me what on the control panel so i can check. Thanks

Re: Not acknowleging

If you go to the control panel and click on sounds, speech, and audio device. After click on Advanced volume control on the left hand side. Click on options and then properties make sure that the mic is selected and hit ok. Then go to options again and click on advanced controls you would see that the advanced controls on the mic showed. Next click on the advanced button and unselect the check marks under the other contols and this should work.

Re: Not acknowleging

Just make sure that you are hocking up you mic in the right plugs int he back of the computer. just match the colors. you need also to go to the audio panel (it is called volume icon)and check in for mic and make sure that is not muted there. if you use the mic for msn for instance, you need to go to tools, audio and video options and just follow dircetions.good luck

How do u get hsm wii microphone to work on

well ..i cant see what type of conection you mic has and what you really want to achieve as far as quality of sound or ultimate use.., are some ideas.. A mic needs a pre amp and that is often built into some cheap but usable mini mixers made by behringer..You could pick up one and a good cheap dynamic mic[dynamic mics are best close to the sound source] with a lead and then go from the main output of the little mixer to the audio input of the computer.. A second but easier way and one that could give very good results is purchase a USB input microphone and this will have mic pre amp built in so it just plugs into your computer usb port.. SE electronics ,Rode make brilliant ones that are used often for podcasting..[well worth the +-100 uk pounds] but i am confident that berhinger will make a usable model for much less money[these type usb condensers will be sensitive and give clear results]...

If you are using skype, go to the upper left hand top and click on call. Then click on audio settings and make sure your microphone is listed as the mike to use in the window of the drop down menu. It should say logitech something in the window that says microphone.
