Vista Ultimate -Microphone on Cyber Acoustics Headset not working

I am running Windows Vista Ultimate on a Dell Inspiron 1720. The microphone portion of the Cyber Acoustics Headset I have used previously with Windows XP is not working with new Vista Laptop. The ear pieces on the Headset are working fine with the Vista environment. I have tried going through the setup procedures in Vista for sound / microphones with no success.

    do you still have that installation of windows xp? if so, copy the driverstore folder from the my computer/C: Local Disk/windows/system 32 folder to your vista computer, then go into device manager (search for it in the search bar) and click on sound video and game controllers. then go right click on the first one click update driver software, select manually, and select wherever you put the driverstore folder

My audio out put is damaged, any way to re-route

Audio jack on any mother board runs on Mic and Headphone outlets.

The design of the board and the chipset wouldnt allow the headphone to be used in the microphone jack. Instead you have the option of using usb headset which has a driver pack to be installed and it goes fine. I am not sure if you have the product available at all stores. Good Luck

Grphics Driver for Dell Inspiron 1100 (Windows Vista)

download your driver here :

when you have it downloaded the exe file
extract the contents with 7zip or whatever unzip program.
installing the driver in windows vista choose let me select the location and browse to the Win200 folder of the extracted file and point to the ialmnt5.inf file.

there is no real vista driver i could find i think your product is only suported for windows xp but the solution should work then again its a xp/2000 driver running in vista it works but is not the best thing to do.

Perhaps you need new drivers on either your mic, Or sound card. Is this mic your using USB or have a normal 3.5mm plug?

Voice problem in yahoorooms

Can you confirm if your sound devices (microphone, speakers, headset, whatever) are installed and working properly? I don't just mean because Windows says so. I mean have you tested your devices and they are functional? I only know my headset, webcam and speakers work because I physically tested them when I got my new PC.

Microphone does not work even though it says its working properly and driver is "installed"

You need to uninstall the driver, and then reinstall the driver.
Your driver might be corrupted and Vista does not recognize it.

Skype connection

Check the volume control on the Control Panel Sounds and Audio Devices.

If your Microphone is disabled, you can enable it. Another way is to delete the microphone and reboot. Then plug in the mic so it gets discovered.
