Open volume control.
When the box with all the sliders opens up click on OPTIONS (top left)
Click PROERTIES
Tick RECORDING then clck OK
The slider box will swap to the RECORDING slider box
Select the one you want to use as the recording SOURCE and put a tick in the box at the bottom. (in your case MIC)
You can also set the recording level here too. (1/2 way is a good starting point)
Now click OPTIONS once again
Then PROPERTIES
Now tick PLAYBACK and then OK
You should now be back in the normal playback slider box
Whilst you were in the properties for either recordeing or playback you may have noticed a list of devices to show then as sliders tick them as needed

The mic usually goes to the pink socket.. but first you have to be sure your sound driver is installed..if installed click the sound icon and look for the mic options...

I just got a new dell. i've hooked my old hp


1. Try to connect this printer to your PC by ETHERNET cable as opposed to USB 2.0 and see if it speeds up.

2. If it speeds up we know it isn't necessarily the printer giving the problem

3. Now we start to look at the cable. Use a brand new cable to attach it to the PC. If it persists it may very well be the USB port on the Printer itself.

4. To test the port, attach it to another PC and if it speeds up as u expect, then it is not the USB port on the Printer

5. Now it's time to check the Printer Software on the new Dell and fiddle with it a bit accordingly.

Solution
If it is that u cannot get it to speed up by USB and it works well by Ethernet, just use Ethernet to connect it and call it a day

I cant get the microphone to work for guitar hero for the wii


The microphone for the Wii connects to a usb port in the rear of the unit. Make sure that the microphone that you are attempting to use is a usb mic (rectangular end) and not a headphone jack type.

Microphone input on Dell Inspiron B130 doesn't work


Your jack may have been damaged, or the apple mic may not be compatible. Purchase another pc compatible mic to check. Or you could try a multimedia headset with mic that plugs into your usb port. Take a look at RadioShack for headsets, I saw one in a store near me. and they should have them online.

I cant seem to get my microphone to work I have a store bought mic that I have hooked up to a 1/4 to 1/8 reducer plugged into my 1/8 mic port and it wont seem to work


A simple mistake that I have made in the past is that the mic is turned off. Is there a switch on the mic, and if so, make sure it's on. :)

After that, check in your mixer (Usually a speaker icon in your system tray) and make sure the mic isn't muted, and the volume is up. Also, if you have a mic boost, enable it. Try screaming at the mic, sometimes it's working, but really quiet.

Realtek audio device with sound effect menager


First thing is first, there should be 3 audio jack inputs. Line in, Line out and Mic. Make sure you are plugged into the Mic input.

Next if you are running windows XP check to make sure the Microphone volume is not muted and turned up. Do this by going to control panel --> Sound and Audio Devices --> volume tab --> Advanced button. The Microphone volume should be there if not select file --> properties and make sure microphone is checked. It should then appear on the volume controls.

This should take care of it if not what program are you using the mic with?
