My computer doesn't see mic when I plug in to the jack

Model #MM760M, instructions were to just plug it into the mic jack, no luck. I use Windows Vista, and need this for Skype. I have an older Toshiba that didn't have mic nor camera (p.s. - The camera added is working fine). Help, thanks!

First, did you plug in the microphone when the computer was off or not? If you connected the microphone while the computer was on, it may not have seen the new device to load the drivers. If the computer found the microphone when it was turned on, then the problem could be driver or hardware related.

You need to make sure that the computer is seeing this as the recording device. Click Start and select Control Panel from the right hand column. Click on the Hardware and Sound link. Select the Manage Audio Devices link under Sound. Click on the Recording tab. Is the microphone listed as plugged in? If it isn't, then the microphone isn't making good contact with the jack, has a bad wire or the jack isn't working. If you have another computer, check if the microphone works on it. That will rule out the microphone being faulty. Next go back to the starting Hardware and Sound Control Panel. Look for the link to the Device Manager under Devices. Expand the section for audio inputs and outputs. Check for a red triangle with an x or yellow triangle with an exclamation point. This indicates a problem with the audio drivers. Check with Toshiba for the audio drivers for your computer and the current service pack for Vista. You may need to uninstall the current driver and then reinstall that driver. A final option may be to check if the external audio input was disabled in the BIOS. When you turn on the computer, you should see a screen that tells you how to access the BIOS. (Usually this is F1, Esc, Del or F2). I find pressing the appropriate key repeatedly after turning on the computer doesn't always work. If you get to the Windows splash screen, turn off the computer at the login screen and try again.

If the microphone is plugged in, set it as the default device. You should be able to record with your software.

If the microphone still doesn't work with this computer and does work with another machine, you will probably be better off using a USB microphone or a USB audio adapter (USB to 3.5 mm microphone and speaker jacks). The wiring of the jack is probably faulty and it's not worth the effort to repair.

I hope this helps.

    One thing: double check that you have the microphone in the microphone jack. It can be easy to mix up the headphone and microphone ports on some machines. My laptop has dual headphone jacks and very small icons so it can be easy to make the mistake. Cindy Wells

Bought turtle beach z11 headset, cant get mic to work


The Z11 has a four-pole input/output plug to connect the mic and the earphone. The earphone needs to be connected to the earphone jack and the mic needs to be connected to the mic input jack on the back of the computer. In other words, you should have to 3.5 mm plugs. Plugging both into the same jack will disconnect one or the other. Check your adapter, It should have two separate 3.5mm plugs. If it does, be sure they are connected to the right jacks on the computer. The headphone jack will have a headphone symbol; the mic jack will have a microphone symbol. Go to System Preferences, Sound. Select the line in preference for input and the line out preference for headphones. Just may work.

The microphone on my ic014c webcam won't work!


if the microphone has a second cable with a jack plug ..than you have to use it in the pink inlet on the sound card ..and will work ..or in the mic in of the laptop ..
If there is no second cable (split cable ) with jack plug ..it means the mic is using the usb ..and in this case you have to get to the sound settings and select the usb for the mic ..Also select the usb for each instant messaging programs you use..to d that just open the program ...get to the tool options ..and select sound devices and under mic select the usb instead of regular windows default or sound driver ..

I purchased a R31S Samson Microphone and it cant be detected when i plug it in to my computer microphone jack. What is it to do?


A dynamic mic connected to the your computer's mic jack is an analog connection. So your computer won't give a notification that there's a mic connected. However, you can view input levels through the default windows mixer of your sound card or any program or application installed on your computer that has the capability. Had it been connected through usb or firewire, it would be digital and you wold be notified that the device had been detected via device drivers etc.
Hope this helps

Do I have to plug the jack at the end of the mic cord to an adapter or does it go directly into the computer?


If this mic is designed for a computer, it will plug directly into the computer mic jack. If it is a standard mic that is used for professional recording, you may have to have an adapter to go from 8mm plug down to the 2mm plug.

I just bought a sm-m008 microphone. It worked when it's tested on windows XP. but my laptop is windows vista 64bit. so, what should I do then?


Plug it into the mic jack on the laptop. Winsows Vista has drivers built into it for mics so see if it automatically installs once plugged in. You'll need to set up the levels in the recording devices under the sound properties. Good luck & hope this helps.

Speakers work with ipod not with laptop


First thing, you have plugged in to the wrong point, plug in the speaker to the headphone slot(mostly light green in color).

MIC point is specifically for MIC not speakers.

The point which works for your headphones would work perfectly for speakers.
