Microphone doesn't connect to the CPU. But follow these instructions and it will work.
Go to Control Panel and Click on Sounds, Click on Audio, then Click on the Microphone. Then Click on the drop down and select Camera Microphone or Headset.
Click OK and it should work.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.

Web Camera's have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on "Open the call setup assistant" and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:

1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.
Hope this helps. Bud

How to connect microphone


Make sure microphone is compatible with your computer.

First find the port for audio jack on your computer. In case of PC, it is located either on the front or back side of the CPU. In case of laptop, check all the sides of laptop.

Once you find the suitable port, try inserting your microphone's connector into that port. If your microphone have 2 connectors, that is headphone and microphone combo, you'll have to find such port on your computer. If you cannot find suitable port, I am sorry, you won't be able to connect microphone.

Lastly, you need is drivers which will be automatically installed if your computer detects your microphone. Now your microphone is ready to use.

Hope this helps.

Window show (No Audio Output Device is installed)


1. Make sure your Microphone is connected properly to the correct port (It's usually the one with the little mic picture on it at the back of your CPU)

2. Once it is properly connected, the system will automatically detect your microphone and suggest for you to download the necessary drivers needed. Do so to fully use your device.

3. If this still doesn't work, go to control panel, click on sounds and make sure that everything is set up properly (audio, mic in has volume, etc)

Where can I plug the microphone in?


Plug your microphone's pin into the red (or pink) jack out of the three jack sockets (blue, green, and red) that you see on the rear of your computer CPU. The newer computers may have these three jacks on the front of the CPU.

Other end of our Skype cannot hear. Microphone


Test your microphone by following the setup process through the Skype program. If it works there you may be having an issue with the speed of your internet connection or too many processes running while trying to use your skype.

If you hold down the CTRL and ALT keys and then click the DEL key once then you can start up the Task Manager.

When you start up the Task manager click on the Processes tab and look at the CPU Usage. If the CPU Usage is high you may not have enough resources available to run the sound card correctly.

If everything seems okay but the mic does not work at all, then follow the sound card instructions listed here:

http://icompute.info/no_sound_from_card.htm

make sure that what your setting as the defualt is the microphone as well as the sound card.

After that I would make sure your internet connection on both ends is fast enough. You can test this at www.speakeasy.net/speedtest .

Hope this helps...
