Question about Logitech (980240-0403) Consumer Microphone

2 Answers

Microphone Last night I had to perform a full system restore due to a virus, all of my drivers are up to date but for some reason I cannot seem to get my microphone to work. Everything is plugged in correctly; it is selected in the record options and the volume is correct. Headset is working properly, but when I go to test the microphone it shows that no sound is being produced. Before I performed the full system restore the microphone was working perfectly and nothing happened to the microphone while restoring so I'm at a loss as to what the problem is, any assisstance would be greatly appreciated.

    Well this is Verbatim again and i'm purchasing another headset to see if I can get it to work, if I have to I think i'll just just get a USB microphone. Thank you for the timely responses!

I believe it is an issue with DirectX. If you don't already have it, install the utility to test your audio. Usually this problem is caused by a configuration problem somewhere, not hardware. My guess is that your initial problem caused the settings to become corrupted in some fashion.

Probably your sound card for your computer is damage or you will have to check your installed drivers once more if that does not work.get a sound card that can fit on computer slot.since your computer sound card is built onto the mother board.good luck.

Shut down

Possible corrupt operating system. The cause of corrupt operating system is Windows file corrupted or virus infected Windows.

Solution corrupt Windows files:
1. START - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Recovery Options - System Restore (restore to the date when the OS is still normal)
2. START - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Recovery Options - System Image Recovery (restore using a backup system that you created)

Solution files corrupted due to virus infected windows
Update anti-virus and virus scan (if the virus is detected, the primary action = repair, secondary action = quarantine). Then repair the operating system with System Restore or System Recovery Options.
If the operating system infected with virus (virus infected not long ago), the best solution is to use System Restore. Restore to a date when the windows are still normal.

Anti-Virus Program detects virus but after re-boot...still there!

Ever wonder why it is that when your Anti-Virus Program detects a virus and apparently seems to contain or delete it, the virus is there all over again after a re-boot and the Anti-Virus Program once again contains it or deletes it? Seems like a never ending battle right?

Well here's the reason and the solution:

1) Reason: Bill Gates

A smart and nice man no doubt about it but he overlooked one thing about Windows: ANY Anti-Virus Program out there, by default, is NOT permitted to even knock on the door of the System Restore File. So what happens when your Anti-Virus Program halts, contains, or removes a virus? The virus is there ALL over again in a vicious cycle it seems. Why? Because the Virus IS allowed to knock on the door. In fact, a virus can even step foot so far inside the system restore department that it actually BACKS ITSELF the system restore file. THAT's how the never ending battle occurs!

2) Solution: your attention now don't I? Hmmm well if you really want to know how to put the brakes on this vicious cycle, first I'm going to need you to create a PayPal account and then...only kidding here is the solution:

Answer: Once your Anti-Virus has detected a virus..don't waste ANY more precious time trying one thing or another. You MUST at that point, TURN OFF YOUR SYSTEM RESTORE FOR ALL PARTITIONED DRIVES! Once the system restore is OFF, THEN and ONLY then would it make the most sense to perform a FULL-SYSTEM scan. You see, full system scan to an Anti-Virus Program does NOT include the restore file, while a virus DOES! So, with the restore we're fighting on equal terms and your Anti-Virus will prevail!! Just remember to turn the restore back on once you have confirmed you have a clean system.

Yep! that's the answer that would save you HOW much $ ? (from having to call Geek-Squad or similar outfit)

Here's the procedure for turning off the restore and there is more than one way to get to the ocean so to speak but here is the shortest route I believe:

1) Point mouse at <start>
2) Right-Click mouse on <my computer>
3) Left-Click mouse on < Properties>
4) The very top left tab click mouse on <system restore>
5) Put a check mark in the box that says <turn off system restore>

You're done! Now perform that full system scan now and after the scan is complete, ....point that mouse over that box again but this time...take the check mark OUT of the box and this will allow restore to function once again. Same holds true for desktops as well as laptops running virtually any version of Microsoft Windows.

Blue screen appears after Dell dimension 8300 boots and it say "computer shut down due to fatal error"

Maybe something is wrong in configuration. Possible virus. Possible hardware issue, like ram going bad.
First thing I would do is do a system restore to an earlier time - like a week ago, or to a date before this started. (You will not lose any work) You may need to start up in Safe mode if it does stay up long enough to run restore. Power on, then right away keep tapping F8 key till you get a special boot options screen. Safe mode takes longer to start. Then - Start menu, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore.
If it continues to happen, or does it safe mode, (forget the restore) open the case and remove then reseat the memory (RAM) modules. If you have 2 or more modules, remove one and test PC, then switch with the other. If it seems to work well with one of them, the other is bad. Replace it. Office Max, Comp USA etc.. While you are testing the one module, pay attention to the fan on the motherboard to see it is working, and the fins of cooling block is not choked with dust.
Last - Update your anti virus and run a full scan of the system
Hope this is helpfull.

My built-in microphone does not work

Use your system restore on the control panel. Enter the date to restore as the date you remember the microphone working. Run the program. If you don't remember when the mic last worked or had never used the mic, keep setting the date back on system restore unti yor mic is operational.l

Perform a System Restore to restore the Computer when it was working normally.

Check this link to perform the System Restore operation:


Click on Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore -> Select the Restore date -> OK to perform the System Restore.

NOTE: The System Restore procedure will restore the Registry and other settings back to the date and time selected. No data will be lost. Saved documents and e-mail will not be affected by performing a System Restore. Any Hardware or Software that has been installed after the date of the restore point will need to be reinstalled.

Also scan your Computer for any virus infection.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mic problem

have you ever had a working microphone, if so then use a system restore - Start--> All Programs--> Accessories--> System Tools--> System Restore. Choose a date as to when it last worked. If this isnt the case, check drivers. If you have, then go to your hardware and make sure the mic is selected and you can run tests in there. hope this helps

Cannot access full factory restore

Open up your Control Panel (in Start menu), click on 'Performance and Maintenance', then in the left-hand column click on 'system restore'. On the system restore screen choose 'Restore my computer to an earlier time' and follow the directions to go back as far as you want.
I'm curious why you need to do this, though. If it's because of a virus, make sure the virus is gone or your problems wilkl just come right back!
I would certainly consider ordering the manufacturer's recovery CD's any way in case the hard drive ever goes bad. It's cheaper than a anew set of 'Windows' CD's. Good Luck!
