Question about Compaq PC Microphone (Black or Beige) Microphone

Compaq monitor speaker

Hi.

I just moved and when I set up my computer my sound just doesn't work. Any solutions? I check that I didn't have it muted and all of the properties say that it is working properly.

Help me...

Thanks.

If everything worked before you moved it, I would try checking the simple things 1st.
Make sure that the plug from the speakers is plugged into the correct hole in the back of your computer. Usually, the color of the plug for the speakers and the jack are GREEN.
If the power isn't coming on the speakers, then I would make sure that you have the correct power plug (If the speaker type that you have, has a removable power supply).

What you can to to test out the speakers, is plug the speakers into an IPOD or a MP3 player and test it out.
This will at least eliminate the possiblity that the speakers/wires/power supply are bad.

Hope this helps.
Good luck.

    There still should be another single wire going from the monitor speakers to your computer. Also keep in mind that some monitors with built in speakers need a power supply. So, look around the back and bottom of your monitor and see if there are any open jacks. If there are 2 that are not used, then 1 is for the sound input and the other would be for a power supply.
    Good luck.

I recently recieved a Bush Noise Cancelling Desktop Microphone M-013NC , i've plugged it into the back of the computer and turned all microphone volume settings upto full, but when i try using the sound...


There are two separate settings in control panel for record and playback. It appears you have playback enabled but not recording - see below

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


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone 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. Same applies for Internal mic.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

My built in mic is not working properly,when I call somebody hear me but I don't hear him!


If the other person can hear you then YOUR microphone is working fine.
The reason may be that his microphone is faulty (solution below)
Otherwise:
  1. Make sure the volume is turned up on your speakers (and if using external speakers they are plugged in / turned on) . To increase volume go to Control Panel, Sounds & Audio Devices and adjust the slider on "Device Volume" . Also click on "Loudspeaker Volume" and adjust the sliders there as necessary.
  2. Can you hear other sounds (like playing music or videos)? If yes then you need to adjust the audio settings for your calling program (skype or whatever). Launch the appropriate program Click on Tools and ' test audio properties' on the program tool-bar. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  3. Try plugging in headphones and see if you can hear better on them.
