Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook
I have a Dell Inspiron B130 Laptop. On the left side of the computer is a 1/8th inch input jack for a microphone to plug into seeing that the computer does not have a mic built in. I used a dell microphone for a while but then I lost it and about 6 months later I aquired an apple microphone. I tried to use the mic but it did not work. I used sound recorder and a free recording software called Audacity but neither was picking up sound. Then I used a 1/4inch to 1/8inch adaptor to plug my guitar directly into my laptop and that didn't work either. Then I tried both of these recording methods on my family's computer and they both worked, the apple microphone and the adaptor. Any ideas?
Your jack may have been damaged, or the apple mic may not be compatible. Purchase another pc compatible mic to check. Or you could try a multimedia headset with mic that plugs into your usb port. Take a look at RadioShack for headsets, I saw one in a store near me. and they should have them online.
