No sound transfer when I use mic plugged into soundcard

Hi, as stated above, my mic/headset combo isn't sending any sound when i use it to talk to people on Skype.Brand new headgear & have checked settings in Audio to make sure it not muted.
Wonder if perhaps sound line in faulty?Tried plugging mic into mic-input of stereo to check it not the rig I have & got no sound from there either.Had same prob with different set that I took back to shop,tested them there & another set of the same there & there was no sound, so I reckon the probs in the com,Even though I got no sound out of my stereo either.I know that seems presumptuous of me,but......
The com I have is 2nd hand & all good except for this glitch,so.I also wondered if perhaps there could be a pin jumper not in the right place on motherboard.
Also not being heard,well very faint I'm told,when I am using My DSE 400X webcam with inbuilt mic.That is USB plug though,but sound transfer via any mic input seems like a no-go @ mo.
Any advice welcome.

Re: No sound transfer when I use mic plugged into...

In many cases you will need to install not only the drivers, but the sound configuration application as well, though in many cases the configuration application is part of the driver package.

You then need to run the configuration application (usually from control panel), and then you can select which port outputs what, and which port inputs what. The same green or black jack that may carry audio out in a 2 desktop speaker configuration may carry a different signal if setup for a 5.1 or 7.1 speaker system.

Lastly, in some cases, it is required that you have a 2nd set of audio jacks of differing colors on a expansion slot cover that connects to the mobo via a ribbon cable to provide additional ports for higher end sound.

Did you plugged the green jack of your headset to the green color plug...If yes try to adjust the volume of your headset..If it still didn't solve the problem. does the speakers of your pc works when you plug it..If yes perhaps the problem is in your headset..cause the thing that i'm asking you is the process on how to determine the problem with regards your audio in your pc...

Whenever i plug in both the headphone and the mic, it randomly disconnects my headset speakers and doesnt even pick up my mic. When i plug in just the headphone i hear sounds but it doesnt pick up mic....

You have to firstly test your head phones on another computer.... If it works in another computer than firstly update your anti virus program and then re install your drivers.... If it does not solve the problem you can re plug the cable of sound card on mother board... If problem does not solved than your sound card might have problem.

Hello, I wanted to get a headset to use for online gaming and possibly using programs such as Skype. So I ordered a Logitech ClearChat Premium PC headset from Best Buy. The headset arrived and I proceeded...

Well in this case you need to include also the infomation of your computer like brand , model and Operating system because the problem is not with the headset. Otherwise you can check the settings right through Control Panel - Sound then Playback and Recording configuration

No mic

Make sure the volume for the mix isn't muted. Also make sure the software you are using to make calls is set-up to the proper audio input. Make sure it's set to mic and not line-in or something else.

Also test using an audio recording program like audacity to test your mic.

Integrated Sound

Hi ZeroCool2u,

I think you just sold me ;~) *drools with envy*

Getting to your question, your MSI K8N Neo4 motherboard is 7.1 compatible, so you shouldn't have any trouble hooking up your new headset.

You'll have to configure your setup within MSI DigiCell first though. from the manual, it looks like it will give you a colour code telling you which jack is which, when you select 5.1 from the "speaker mode" section.

now, going by this picture I found of your headset, the analog audio connectors you have are on an adapter, and colour coded. They are as follows:

Green plug- your front two channels.

Black plug- Your back two channels

Yellow plug: Center channel/sub

Pink plug- Microphone

so, plug these in using this as a guide, and you should be good to go. I'm unsure if you need to plug in the USB connector along with the rest of them, or if it's just there if you want the headphones to do all the rendering instead of the soundcard, so you might want to test the headset without it plugged in, initially, or refer to the users' guide.

although personally, I'd reccommend investing in a dedicated soundcard anyways- Integrated sound systems take away resources from the Processor and RAM, something which you want as little as you can of when you're a gamer trying to make the best out of your system. I'd reccommend any of the creative X-Fi series, for their overall sound quality.
