Any ideas?

Thanks

    I appear to have the same problem. The microphone is recognised by my Realtech software and by Skype BUT not in the Recording Tab of Sound Devices. In the Volume Mixer it shows but reads 'Name not available'. What's going on?

Go to your default settings menu at the very top of the menu in the all programs. Check in there and make sure that your default recording device is the GE Microphone, if it is not, make that the default.

Solution for Skype 5.0:
In the upper right of the window during a Skype call, there should be an icon of a microphone with a slash through it. When it is highlighted in red, this means that your microphone is muted. Make sure the icon is white to be unmuted (pictures below).

Another problem could be which microphone you have selected in your Preferences. Go to Skype->Preferences... and click on the Audio/Video tab. There should be a drop down menu labeled "Microphone:"; make sure the correct microphone is chosen.

We'd need to know more about the receiver than the mic, since it's the receiver that is muted. Muted means NO SOUND.

Lm on skype but people cat hear me


You may need to enable your microphone for recording - see below.



Also check in Skype - tools - options - sounds that you have the correct (WAVE) audio source selected



Using 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 and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone 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. Same applies for Internal mic.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

How to unmute laptop sounds. Its mute and i am not able to unmute it?


  1. Click START
  2. click CONTROL PANEL
  3. click SOUNDS and AUDIO DEVICES
  4. Look at the box labelled SOUND RECORDING - if the DEFAULT DEVICE is listed as WAVE DEVICE (may have some letters and or numbers in front of the words WAVE DEVICE - they are only the name of the device) go to step 6 otherwise click the little downward arrow at the right hand end of the DEFAULT DEVICE box. Scroll down the pop-up list to WAVE DEVICE and click on it.
  5. click VOLUME in the SOUND RECORDING box
  6. A window will open entitled 'Recording Control'
  7. Put a tick (check-mark) in the little white box under the heading of MICROPHONE and make sure the Volume slider is at the top of the scale.
  8. Close the window to go back to the Sounds and Audio Devices Properties Window.
  9. If you also want to hear what you are saying into the microphone over your own loud-speakers / headphones click on the VOLUME button in the SOUND PLAYBACK box.
  10. A VOLUME CONTROL window will open. If MICROPHONE is in the list of sound sources go to step 11 otherwise click OPTION on the tool-bar at the top right of the VOLUME CONTROL window. Then click PROPERTIES. With a little green dot in the PLAYBACK box look where it says 'Show the following volume controls' - place a check-mark against microphone and then click OK
  11. In the VOLUME CONTROL window remove any check-mark from the MUTE box under the MICROPHONE heading and also make sure that the MUTE ALL box (bottom left) is also un-checked.
  12. Close the VOLUME CONTROL window. Press OK to close the Sounds and Audio Devices window and exit CONTROL PANEL
  13. That should be it but if you are using MSN Messenger / Skype or other similar program you will need to start that program and click on the TOOLS button followed by SOUNDS and TEST AUDIO - follow screen prompts thereafter.

How to hear my voice through my usb microphone?


by default the playback of your voice is muted. next to your clock theres the sound speaker icon click on it, you should see microphone somewhere there, if you dont press settings from the toolbar and then properties

then on the playback make sure there is a X on microphone.

then click ok, now check is the microphone muted? unmute it and speak to the microphone you should hear your own voice played back instantly from the speakers.
