Well there also needs to be a soundcard installed that has audio capture capabilities, but if there are mic and speaker jacks then, yes, you should be able to just plug any microphone into the mic jack.

The easiest way to do it properly would be to use a small mixer, with an adapter cable from the outputs (usually 1/4") to the line-in of the laptop (usually 3.5mm stereo).

Mic twont turn on


There is no way to directly connect this mic via USB. It requires a phantom power source, through an XLR mic cable.

Plugged in microphone not working


We really need more specific information to answer your question, like what kind of computer and operating system. But in the most general terms, make sure you are plugging your microphone into the microphone port and not the headphone port. Check that the volume setting is turned up and not muted. You might also have to turn the microphone on through the sound settings (usually found by right-click on the volume).

Can a Shure KSM27 professional Microphone be plugged into a laptop?


You will need a USB adapter with Phantom Power, such as the Shure X2u. With the X2u and the KSM27, you will be able to connect the mic to your laptop.

ATR3350 Microphone: Battery in. Plugged into laptop. Recorded video. ATR3350 Mic is ignored. Audio is still recorded from my Logitech Webcam software. How does this thing work?


You need to tell your computer which microphone / sound source to use.
In he absence of other instructions it is defaulting to the built in microphone.
Normally your sound-card software should detect a new device plugged in and ask you to confirm it. However if it is not doing so you may need to change the audio settings.
How to correct this will vary slightly depending on which operating system you are using.

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


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here you need to SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls). If your webcam/ microphone is built in to the laptop there should also be a volume control called 'Internal MIC' - disable it by placing a check-mark in the mute box.


NOTE if microphone (or internal MIC) 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 but it is possible you may also need to turn off the microphone in the software for your web-cam.

Accessories for laptop...Dell Inspiron 1100. sound card, microphone and speakers


No, you'll have to buy a microphone and plug it into the microphone jack on the chassis.

If you buy a webcam, many have a built-in microphone in the webcam.

Micro phone not working in my DELL Inspiron 6400


There is NO built in microphone with this laptop. You will need to purchase an external microphone and plug it into the mic in socket.
