Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Gigaware USB Desktop microphone which is several years old. I cannot hear my voice through the speakers. I ran a 'test' and was able to hear my voice, although it was very choppy. Yet after I ran the test I still couldn't hear my voice. What should I do? I am running Windows XP.

You might wanna upgrade your Windows, period. XP is way too outdated and has no driver support anymore.

SOURCE: 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.

Memory issues... you need to add more memory to your system and also get rid of any spyware as it will slow down your system... i recommend spybot s&d for that... as well defragging your system will often help as well

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.


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.

Ok, i have one CB that is a realistic TRC-474 and it powers up just fine and everything works except theres no noise at all coming out of the speaker! However, my buddy pulled up next to me and i could...


there a several things you can check yourself with a minimum of tools or test equipment. this model has been around for several years and voice coils do expire in the internal speakers as they age. attempt to locate a known good external speaker with a 3.5 mm plug and see if the receiver can be heard through it. if so then the internal speaker has seen better days and the solution/s should be obvious. also in this particular model the receiver output is controlled by the microphone switching and an open receive line in the mic cord/cable or the plug itself would render the receiver unhearable. check with another known good microphone wired for realistic radios (5 pin DIN). the microphone might also have been rewired improperly. make sure the squelch is in the fully counter-clockwise position and the volume is adjusted to a suitable level while testing, 12 o'clock or higher.

Microsoft LifeChat Microphone Headset Doesn't Work Properly


You should take your headset to another computer/location and see if your problem still exists.
That way you can eliminate problems with either your computer hardware or your outgoing internet connection (jitter).
I don't think that the CD will be necessary, since it is a USB device, which contains it's own little sound card and doesn't need any drivers.
If the problem persists and it turns out to be a problem with the headset, I would definitely return/exchange it.
