It should plug into the sound card on the back of your computer. As a rule, the GREEN plug goes into the GREEN jack and the RED plug goes into the PINK jack on the sound card in the back. Look for these jacks and after you plug them in it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

How do i fix my iPhone so the receiver can here me when i talk


1.Unplug anything plugged into the headset jack.
2.If you're on a call and holding your phone next to your ear, speak into the microphone and make sure you don't block it with your fingers or shoulder.
3.If you're using a screen protector or case that covers the microphone, remove it. Clear any debris from the microphones.
4.Restart your device.
5.Update to the latest version of iOS.

Test the microphone
To find out if there is an issue with the microphone itself-and not the app you're using or your cellular connection-test the microphone with the built-in Voice Memos app. Speak into the microphone and then play back the recording. You should be able to hear your voice clearly.

*If you can't hear your own voice the microphone is not working properly, you should replace the piece of hardware.

Where is the mic switch located on my laptop


P000257700 is microphone number and it could be placed in different places depending on the Toshiba series laptop itself, but most probably it is either (A) right above the screen or (B) right in front of the keyboard where you hold your palms while typing with fingers.
There should be a small hole with either "MIC" written besides or some microphone symbol like <<*>>
P.S. You can also plug ear-buds in the microphone socket - it seems strange, but it ear-buds work just like a microphone.

Where can I plug the microphone in?


Plug your microphone's pin into the red (or pink) jack out of the three jack sockets (blue, green, and red) that you see on the rear of your computer CPU. The newer computers may have these three jacks on the front of the CPU.

How do i turn the microphone on, on my Toshiba laptop


1 . Turn your computer on. Be sure that the speakers on your computer are turned on as well.

2 . Attach the adapter to the microphone cable, if it has not been done already.

3 . Find your computer's microphone input. On most PCs, there will be an area in back of the tower with red, blue and green plug-in ports. The red port is the one for microphones.

4 . Plug the microphone cable into the red port. If you see ports that are labeled "line-in" and "mic-in," be sure to plug the microphone into the port that says "mic-in."

5 . Double-click the small speaker icon on your computer to open up the mixer. Make sure the microphone column is not muted and adjust your volume until you are satisfied.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Where does the Microphone plug in to the Dell Vostro200


Depending on the chassis-style of your Vostro 200 (Slim-line or Tower), you may have one or more options for installing a microphone.
See below for instructions:
A. Slim-Line Model
There are two locations on this model (by default).

Front: You have the power button, then 2 x USB ports, 1 x Headphone jack-out, and 1 x Microphone jack-in.

Rear: There is a block of six audio connectors, looking only at the bottom 3 (red, green & blue).
Red = Microphone jack-in Green = Speaker/Audio jack-out Blue = Audio jack-in

B. Tower Model
There is one location on this model (by default):

Rear: There is a block of six audio connectors, looking only at the bottom 3 (red, green & blue).
Red = Microphone jack-in Green = Speaker/Audio jack-out Blue = Audio jack-in

How do I plug my BA745 Boston speakers into a MAC desktop with one headphone outlet in the back?


I have the same speakers. It should have two plugs, one green and one pink. the pink plug is for a microphone. On the side of the speaker with the control knobs, you will find a headphone jack and a microphone jack. Unless you plan to plug a microphone into the pink microphone jack on the side of the speaker, you don't need to plug in the pink plug that goes to the PC. This is basically a microphone extension cord that runs through the speaker cord. That's all the pink plug is for. The green plug, on the other hand, is for your audio out. take the green plug and plug it into your computer's head phone outlet and you're good to go. You can use the speakers with any device that has a headphone jack. Just make sure you use the green plug, not the pink plug.

Computer wont recognize the microphone on the turtle beach x4


Can you try using the X1 mic on your PC? Green plug to green jack, pink plug to pink jack, USB plug to USB port. Talk into the X1 mic. Can you hear your voice? If yes, then you probably have a bad chat-controller cable. If no, then your X1 mic may not be working. If that's the problem, you should contact Turtle Beach tech support for help. support@turtlebeach.com.

Microphone doesn't work with small plug


I'm just taking a stab in the dark here but bare with me on this, I got a lot of info stored in this old head so it takes a while.

If you look at the jack for the microphone, Does it have 2 sleaves and a pin or just 1 sleave and a pin. If it has 2 then you will need an adaptor (Normaly Stereo jack to XLR). If it has 1 sleave then your going to need a preamp.

Cannot get microphone to work while connected to computer.


I found this on the Turtle Beach website: ________________________________________
Let's make absolutely sure that the microphone in your headset is working correctly. If the mic is working, a replacement talkback cable should fix it. If not, then please send in your name, shipping address, the name of the store where you purchased your X1 and the date (month/day/year) of purchase.
OK, here's how to test the X1 using the Microphone input on your PC:
1) Take the pink plug from the X1 and plug it into the pink jack (Microphone input) on your PC's soundcard.
2) Take the green plug from the X1 and plug it into the green jack (Front L/R Out or Line Out) on your PC's soundcard.
3) Take the USB plug from the X1 and insert it into a USB port on the PC (not a USB hub, please).
4) In the soundcard's control software, enable the Microphone for playback. In the Microphone > Advanced settings, enable the Microphone Boost. Make sure the Microphone is not muted (Mute switch is not enabled).
5) Adjust the volume for the Microphone to about half-way up.
6) Adjust the overall playback volume to about half-way up.
7) Put on the headset. Make sure the Mute switch on the X1 amp box is not set to Mute (the LED should be green).
Now speak into the microphone. Do you hear your voice in the headphones? If so, the mic works and your X1 headphones should be OK. If you still cannot get the X1 mic to work over Xbox Live, then you need to take a closer look at Dashboard settings and other connections, or check the integrity of your X1-Xbox Controller Cable.

******************************
In order to enable the chat make sure that the Mute button in the Off position. If it is on the ON position the Mic will not work.
Red = Muted Green = UN-Muted

If you're having trouble adjusting the Mic in Windows:
WINDOWS XP:
For Windows XP, there's a nice video on YouTube that takes you through all the steps of setting up your microphone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vissxo8furo


WINDOWS VISTA:
Please follow these instructions to configure your microphone within Windows Vista:
1. Left-click on the Start button. The Start Menu will appear.
2. Left-click on Control Panel. The Control Panel will open.
3. Left-click on the Hardware and Sound option. The Hardware and Sound window will open.
4. Left-click on the Sound option. The Sound window will open.
5. Left-click on Recording from the three tabs at the top of the Sound window. While in the Recording tab of the Sound window, you will see all options available for recording - Microphone should be one of them. (If you don’t see an option for Microphone, ensure your microphone is plugged into your computer using the jacks commonly located on either the front or back of the machine.)
6. Left-click on the Microphone option to highlight it. This will enable the Properties button toward the bottom-right of the window. Left-click on the Properties button.
7. You should see the Properties for your recording (input) devices. One of these should be Microphone.
8. Left-click on the Levels tab (or similar). Adjust the Level (Volume) and Mic Boost controls to at least half-way up. If your Mic Boost control is a simple check box, please make sure it is checked (Enabled). You should hear your microphone in your headset or speakers.
Once the levels are adjusted to your satisfaction, left-click OK and OK to save your settings. You can then close the Control Panel.
Your microphone should now be ready!
