Re: cannot get in line or microphone to work
You are using the onboard sound, yes?
Go to control panel, then go to system, then to advanced tab, then to device manager. are there any yellow ?'s marks?
if so click on each one and fix according to the instructions it offers.
do you or have you had sound before?
Please update asap. there are many options available to you.

Is your computer a laptop or a desktop? How old is it? Which make/model of computer do you have?
For an older desktop, the microphone input will be on the back of the computer. There are usually three 3.5 mm jacks for audio connections. The pink connector is for the microphone. The black connector is for Line In and the green is line out (speakers). Often they are towards the far side of the motherboard connections from any PS2 (keyboard and mouse) ports. Otherwise, they will line up with one of the card slots.
Newer desktop computers often have additional audio ports for surround sound. However, the pink jack for the microphone is standard. If the computer has front audio ports, you may find that the same color labels the jacks. Otherwise look closely at the icons next to the ports. These will be in addition to the back audio ports.
Laptops can have the audio ports on the front, back or side depending on the model. There will be a small icon with a stand microphone indicated for the microphone port.
If you have one of the newer USB microphones, plug it into an available USB port.
If the computer has no working audio ports, either get a USB microphone or add a sound card.
I hope this helps. If you add a comment with your computer's brand and model number, I'll try to provide the exact audio port details. (There are some computer motherboards that do not have on-board audio and you will need a sound card.)

<br />If your laptop has a line-in jack, follow the instructions above for connecting a music player to a desktop computer. But to connect a music player or other audio device to most laptops, you'll have to plug it into a microphone jack. To do so, follow these steps:<br /><br />Click to open Sound. <br /><br />Click the Recording tab, click Microphone, and then click Properties.<br /><br />Click the Listen tab, click the Listen to this device check box, and then click Apply.<br /><br />Click the Levels tab and make sure the Mute button looks like this . If the button looks like this , click it to turn on sound for this connection, and then click Apply.<br /><br />Play some music or other sounds on your device to test the volume coming through your computer speakers. Select the slider under Microphone, drag it right or left to increase or decrease the volume of your audio device, and then click OK. You might also want to adjust the volume on your device.<br /><br />Note<br />If you hear noise coming out of your speakers, try reducing the volume on both the music player and in the Levels tab. The microphone jack is designed to receive sound from a microphone, which is different than sound coming from a music player
click start control panel
sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box
untick it or select audio from the microphone drop down list make sure you
have the right one selected and in the volume box make sure the microphone box
has a tick in it or select the voice tab and make sure that you have the right
media selected also select volume make sure the box for microphone has a tick
in ithope this helps
XLR connectors are a two-wire plus ground system. Using a 1/4 inch to XLR adapter may not connect the wires correctly to your sound system input.
The A-T Freeway 200 Series has a 1/4" output jack. This would indicate a line level. A cable to connect the tip of the 1/4" jack to pin 2 of the XLR and the sleeve of the 1/4" jack to pins 1 and 3 of the XLR should work. The XLR should be plugged into a device that accepts line level.
Ideally, you should plug the 1/4" into a 1/4" or RCA jack that is designed for line levels.
One could make an adapter that merges the left and right channels before sending on the balanced XLR input. This involves using an audio transformer or direct input box for the balanced line and is not DIY unless you are elctronically skilled.
The best way to do this is to instead plug the output of the CD into the TAPE inputs that are usually available on the mixer.
One uses usually a 3.5mm stereo splitter cable with RCA plugs for most of them.
the simple answer is No. The long answer is your laptop/computers headphone output and mic input are completely separate on the sound card. Meaning there are no tie to the audio in on the heaphone lines, and vise versa on the mic/line in. Sorry to disappoint.
IF U MEAN WHERE TO HOOK UP THE CABLES FOR SPEAKERS THEN LOOK AT THE BACK OF THE COMPUTER AND YOU WILL SEE PINK, GREEN AND ONE MORE PORT WHICH IS CIRCULAR IN SHAPE, THESE ARE THE SOUND PORTS... SYSTEM SERVICE MANUAL DOWNLOAD THE MANUAL FOR ALL DETAILS..
IN CASE YOU NEED TO UPGRADE YOUR SYSTEM AND WANTS TO INSTALL A SOUND CARD THEN CLICK BELOW AND ENTER YOUR DELL SYSTEM SERVICE TAG...
Standard audio configuration for computers is: Pink jack is a Line In for microphones, green jack is a line out for headphones, and the blue jack is a digital line out to connect compliant stereo systems.
Get a computer with an audio input or soundcard. Like a Mac with garageband and a soundcard. connect both with a male 1/8" to male 1/8" cable. Press play on the tape deck, record on the computer. Once done, edit and trim the beginning and end. Import to itunes. Create a playlist. Burn to cd. Simple.
i think that audio jack is for headphone-microphone combined (those cable plugs have a three black lines , top for left audio, center for right audio, last line for microphone)
so you can use a headphones with mic directly with this 5500.
the mic is i said before is the last line.
what you need is a monophone plug.
i dont think stereo mic will work.
