Where is the microphone? I know where the microphone plug is but I can not find the physical microphone


Most computers/PC's do not come with a microphone. You have to buy a stand alone mic or headset with mic and then plug it into the microphone jack on the front or back of your comptuer.

I am trying to use a new Logitech USB desktop microphone with my Mac OS X version 10.4.11. It seems to be working beecause the screen icon fluctuates when I speak, but I cannot find a way to record...


please keep the microphone a bit away from ur screen... its because, powerful electro magnets will be ther in the microphone... wen u keep it very close to the screen, the waves cause the fluctuation in the screen which wil shorten the life off ur screen

Look for a 3.5 mm microphone port on the computer. Usually the port on the back of the desktop will have a pink surround. (There will be other ports there; the usual minimum are the green port for speakers and blue one for line-in.) Put the 3.5 mm jack on the end of the cord on the microphone into the port. If you have an add-in sound card, use the microphone port on the sound card.

Some machines will also have a front panel microphone port. This will have a small mike icon next to the port.

Next you need to ensure that the audio device is set to Microphone. For Windows systems (Vista/7/8), enter the Control Panel and go to the Hardware and Sound panel. Click on Manage Audio Devices under Sound. Then click on the Recording tab. Check if the microphone listed as plugged in. Make this the default recording device. (XP has a slightly different name for the panel.) For XP through Windows 7, click on the start button and then find the Control Panel listed on the right. For Windows 8, from the desktop, press the Ctrl and X keys at the same time. Then find the Control Panel in the list. (Alternatively, activate the Charms menu, Ctrl+C or hover on the upper right of the screen. Move down and click on the gear (Settings). Then select the Control Panel.)

If the computer doesn't indicate that the microphone is plugged in, make sure that the 3.5 mm plug is in the correct port. Next try the microphone on another computer. The audio card port could be damaged or the microphone cable could be faulty. If the microphone works on another computer, you can try a USB audio adapter (StarTech ICUSBAUDIO or similar) or a new sound card. (Note: some older sound cards do not work properly on newer versions of Windows. If you have a sound card installed and the motherboard has an on-board audio device, remove the sound card. Enable the on-board audio in the computer's BIOS. Install the appropriate audio drivers. Try that audio device. Accessing the BIOS will depend on computer. Often you can press Esc, F1, F2, F10 or Delete repeatedly after you turn on the computer. If Windows starts to boot, turn off the system and try again.) If another computer doesn't recognize the microphone, I'd recommend a new microphone. Fixing the cable isn't worth the effort.

I hope this helps.

I'm not sure where to plug in the microphone... so where should I plug it in?


There are 2 microphone jacks, one located on the rear of the case and the other under the lower front cover. just look for the jack that has a picture of a microphone next to it.

I assume you're troubleshooting a problem with your microphone, since you mentioned that.

1. Verify all physical connections are all the way in. Speakers and microphone sometimes stop before they are all the way in.

2. Verify that you have sound (play music or any sound file). If Windows Media Player gives you an error, google it (use caution here). If there is no sound and no error message, reinstall driver for audio (from Mfg website or "Driver" CD that may have come with your computer).

3. Use Control Panel, Sound, to check for settings that mute sound (check boxes). If you change anything document it carefully beforehand and test frequently, as there are many settings. If you change something and it does not fix the problem, it is a good idea to change it back right away--unless it's obviously wrong (mute checked).

3. If all else fails, try the illogical solution that sometimes works for me: Remove the microphone plug from the back of the PC (plug and port are usually pink). Plug it into the wrong hole (blue or green), then plug it in where it belongs. Every 8 years I find a microphone that is not fixed by any of the usual (logical) fixes. And this has worked twice for me.

Computers, you can't live with em, and you can't live without em!

Hope this helps. Please rate the answer. It's my first post!

Please also seperate two questions from now on. It's impossible to tell which one you are still trying to solve. I know nothing about deleting people.

Microphone doesn't work with small plug


I'm just taking a stab in the dark here but bare with me on this, I got a lot of info stored in this old head so it takes a while.

If you look at the jack for the microphone, Does it have 2 sleaves and a pin or just 1 sleave and a pin. If it has 2 then you will need an adaptor (Normaly Stereo jack to XLR). If it has 1 sleave then your going to need a preamp.

If your microphone has stopped working check to see if it is plugged in. If the drivers are installed correctly, and confirm that the diaphragm in the microphone has not blown.

On my webcam the microphone is not working


Check the microphone is plugged in, sound card is working and unit is compatible to your system. If worked before, try a system restore to earlier date. Do other microphones work?
