The mic is on because I hear feedback, like a high pitched shrill when I turn the volume of the computer up... even when there's no music playing. How should I take care of this problem?


hi,
in the bottom right hand corner, there should be an icon that looks like a speaker. left click it and display the "mixer" style control panel. When opened there should be a series of faders (sliders) with titles either above or below each fader. Click on the box that says "mute". Your microphone should now be muted and the feedback problem cured. Don't forget to unmute the mic again if you use it.

I plugged a mic to my dell laptop but it isnt working, do i need a sound card?


No, if you have a jack to plug the mic into you have a soundcard. However the mic is probably muted in the mixer software. Go to the control panel, left click on sounds and audio, then click on the advanced button; this should open the mixer in the play back mode, at the top left of the mixer go to options and select properties, a new page will come up with a radio button showing playback or recording, switch the radio button to the recording list and check everything in the checkboxes including the mic and press ok. A new mixer should come up with your recording deviced, from here you can set your microphone device volume.

Hi i have an hp pavilion dv2000 lap top, i am trying to record my acoustic guitar into the comp. This lap has conexant high definition audio sound card inbuilt. However when i try and plug a microphone...


The mic may be muted on the computer. In XP, double click the volume control icon in the bottom right of the screen to get the mixer. If you don't see the microphone input, go to 'options' then 'properties' and place a check in the box to show it. Then make sure it is unmuted and the volume is up.
In Vista, right-click the volume icon and choose recording devices and make sure it is on and volume up.

Microphone always muted


Make sure you don't have a program that auto mutes your mic. Possibilities are audio mixers, live messenger, etc.
