Question about Labtec Verse 333 Consumer Microphone
You wouldn't normally expect the computer to detect a microphone plugged into the soundcard as new hardware - so don't get too excited about that particular symptom. Suggest you try a different microphone with the computer, and try the microphone with a different computer - preferably one which is working happily with a microphone of its own. This will help identify whether the problem lies with the microphone or the computer. If the computer looks like the problem, have a look in Control Panel under Sounds and Audio Devices. On the Audio tab, there's a Sound Recording panel, and pressing the Volume button on that gives you access to some controls for the microphone input. Make sure the checkbox for the microphone is ticked, then have a play with the fader. If you're sure the microphone is the problem, then I suggest you take it back and complain. A.

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
Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS
& AUDIO DEVICES
Now click the VOLUME button in the
SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here you need to SELECT microphone as an input source for
recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback
controls). If your webcam/ microphone is built in to the laptop there should also be a volume control called 'Internal MIC' - disable it by placing a check-mark in the mute box.
NOTE if microphone (or internal MIC) 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.
That should be it but it is possible you may also need to turn off the microphone in the software for your web-cam.
