Re: microphone can be detected but doesnt work

I got my problem done couple months ago. the problem is that my audio was not updated with the lastest driver. after you get the latest driver, install it. then it works ok.

Re: microphone can be detected but doesnt work

My microphone stopped working, so i got a new headset. I thought maybe that was the problem. Anyway, the new headset i got was a gigatech GT-204VH vibration one. I plugged this in, in hopes it'll work. it didnt. so anyway, i tried a friends headset and it worked just fine, its a gigatech also but different model. a firewall block/unblock screen came up with my friends and i clicked unblocked. they worked fine. So i swapped back to my headset and microphone and it doesnt work at all. i'm not sure exactly whats going on.

Re: microphone can be detected but doesnt work

Go to start then control pannel then sounds and audio devices. Then in in the volume tab select advanced in the device volume section. When the mixer comes up go to options then properties select the recording option a recording mixer will come up make sure to check the microphone box. Raise the level in the ixer and you should be golden. If you want to hear the mic select playback mixer and raise the mic level. Hope this helps. : ]

I just bought Intel ATOM D425 MB. I installed winxp. Everything ok. But Network drivers not installed. In device manager it shows as unknown device. I searched the Intel site.They dont also have the LAN...

OF COURSE there are no Windows XP networking drivers for this Intel motherboard. WinXP was released in 2001; this motherboard wasn't even DESIGNED until XP had already been replaced by Windows Vista and Windows 7. Why would Intel ever bother to make drivers for an OLD operating system for NEW hardware?

You bought NEW hardware; you need a NEW operating system to make it work. If you want to use XP, you won't be able to do any networking with this system. If you want to be able to network this system, you'll need to buy a modern operating system for the modern hardware.

I know this isn't the answer you want to hear, but you also won't find Microsoft writing a NEW operating system to work with my OLD AMD 386DX-40 motherboard. Of course, you can always complain to Intel and Microsoft, but that won't change the reality. You have NEW hardware, which is great, but NO ONE is going to design and write NEW drivers for an OLD operating system to work with your new system.

There have been many issues with the Windows XP Service Pack 3. The 'bugs' are supposed to be close to being worked out.

For ->MYSELF, I wouldn't use SP/3. However, SP/3 is 'slid' into your registry, if you have automatic updates turned on.
