I upgraded my PC 6 months ago and it now has vista (home basic) as its OS. From the very beginning, I have been having problems in installing the mic! The system does not automatically detect the presence of a mic connection windows98 used to do. All my attempts at making the mic work have not yielded any results so far. Speakers work perfectly. Can you please advise how to make the mic work?

Re: Microphone Problem with Vista
Do you Have Any settings Via Control Panel Or Similar, to check to see if the mic isn,t Muted ?
I,m not too up on Vista but have experience With 95/98/2000 And XP.
I,d also assume that there is Troubleshooting facility with Vista.
Also Is the microphone plugged into the correct Jack/Socket ?

Which do you have - Vista Home Premium or Vista Home Basic? The title of this question category and what you said you have doesn't match. I'll assume you had Home Premium 64 Bit. Yes you can upgrade to Windows 7, 64 Bit. Please be aware that there is the 64 Bit and the 32 Bit versions. Check with your OEM of the computer before you upgrade. In the upgrade process, Windows 7 will create a folder called "windows.old" once the install has completed. There you will find the data you had from the old operating system like pictures and documents.
Before you do the upgrade, I recommend downloading and installing the Windows 7 Advisor to check on any software and hardware issues - the advisor will list those problems before you can upgrade so that you can make the corrections.
This will happens due to 2 reasons
1. Your memory is low.
2. Your system is infected with malware/spyware.
Check your CPU utilization in task manager. Should not utilize 100%.
For this you need to download Antimalware like malwarebytes and clean the entire system.
Or Have to increase the RAM.
Hope this will be usefull
Thanks & Regards
