GE PC Microphone with detachable laptop mic - does not work

I have this microphone plugged into my laptop (IBM Thinkpad running Windows XP) and have tested it a couple of ways (Skype test call, Sound Recorder) but there does not seem to be any sound getting through.

The microphone setting on my computer is not set to mute and the volume is turned all the way up - the default microphone device says it is using Intel Integrated Audio.

Go to your default settings menu at the very top of the menu in the all programs. Check in there and make sure that your default recording device is the GE Microphone, if it is not, make that the default.

External microphone thinkpad t41


Control Panel, Sounds, look at Recording devices (depends on the OS you are using, you didn't mention, Vista, XP, 7,8?), Mic. Your Headphones jack, when in use, will cause the internal sound to disable, depending on OS the mic setup is a bit different but you should find it in sounds, recording devices.

Turning on Microphone Boost in Windows XP:

Not all sound cards support Microphone Boost. The simplest way to find out in Windows XP is to open the Windows Volume Control. If a speaker icon speakericon.gif is displayed at the lower right hand corner of the Windows Desktop double-click it. If no speaker icon is displayed then click the Windows Start button and select "Run..." In the Open box enter sndvol32.exe and click the OK button. This will open the Windows Volume Control. Select "Advanced Controls" from the Windows Volume Control's Options menu. You should see an "Advanced" button near the lower right hand corner of the Windows Volume Control screen. Click the Advanced button. If the "Advanced Controls for Microphone" screen shows a check box for "Microphone Boost" then check that box and click Close. Now try making a test recording and see if it works.
Now, If you do not find this option, I found an amazing video that might just do the trick. Click on the
link and view how to see the hidden "Mickey" :). Mic Boost.

Does an IBM Thinkpad have an incorporated microphone? if not, can it be attached? what type?


Look at the hardware specifications (I found it here, http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-54265).

You need to plug an external microphone with a mini-phono jack into the red hole on the right side of your laptop. Most headphones with a boom mic will have the right plugs. Or you can go for a USB based headphone/microphone option.

GE PC Microphone 98950 do not work


I had this problem. Found out that I had neglected to plug the little detachable mic. I thought the little thing was only for plugging into the laptop, but come to find it, it is the mic and is plugged into the stand. LOL. Hope this helps someone.

T60: use ''mic'' minijack as ''line'' minijack


From the "ThinkPad Online User's Guide" that came with my 600E: "Note: To use the input jack for an external stereo line-in device, you need to disable the microphone function with the software on your operating system. For example in Windows 98, you can disable the function by putting a check mark in the check box of Mute for MIC in the "Master Out" window. To use the jack for a manual microphone, disable the line-in function with the software."

I just bought a GE Portable headset with detachable MIC


I had the same problem, but fixed it. All you have to do is:
(I have a Dell Laptop)
1. Go to the control panel
2. Go to the sounds, speech and audio devices
3. You are supposed to see the icon that belongs to your sound card (Mine is SigmaTel Audio), click on it
4. Activate the port where the microphone is connected, close
5. Configure your microphone as you normally would
6. It should work

GE PC microphone with detachable laptop mic


On the back of your PC, there should be these colorful inputs. One is green, one is pink, and one is light blue. Plug it into the pink slot.
