First, confirm your laptop has a microphone. I am assuming, as you have posted your question, that it does.
Go first to your Control Panel, switch to classic view if you are using XP and small icons if in Vista or Windows 7. Look for some icon such as Sound or Sound and audio devices and click to enter it.
Now here is some divergence in methods.
Enter the tab near the top of the window labeled as Voice. In the Voice recording section, confirm that there is a Default Device. If there isn't, click the drop-down arrow and choose on if there is one available. Sadly, if there is not, then I do not know how to help you. My expertise lie more in Vista and 7.
Vista & 7
Once inside of Sound, enter the Recording Tab and look for some type of microphone. Double click on the Microphone and at the bottom of the screen, there should be a "Device Usage" area and click the box next to it and choose "use this device (enable)" and click ok.
Hopefully one of these two methods should get your microphone working. I apologize if it doesn't. More information on your part may be helpful.
One last side note. There are two jacks on most laptops. If you are using an external microphone, you may be plugged into the output jack as opposed to the input.

Where is the mute button on shire beta 58a

I assume you are asking about a wired Beta 58A. The Beta 58A is not offered with a switch. Audio Engineers do not like switches on microphones as the talent could accidentally switch off the microphone.

My power switch on the handheld microphone is on red all of the time and the microphone is not working

Loosen the top assembly of the mic and see if problem is solved.If not , try to pull out the electronics board now connect the battery and activate the switch. If everything is alright your problem is caused by tight plastic enclosure which does'nt allow free movement of the on and off switch.

I have bought an sE USB1000a condenser, and am pretty new to microphones. what does the ' . A P ' switch on the front do?

For what I could find, the A-P switch is the Apple/PC switch, which
should compensate for the difference in signal sensitivity between
the 2 types of computersystems.

We're using 30 Shure microphones, mostly PG 58s. The main problem is the switch of the PG 58 cordless mics. Practically all of them have malfuntioned, giving us serious problems. It begins with...

What is happening to the switches, specifically? Our shop has fixed hundreds of T2s but rarely a switch problem. We'd guess they're getting gunked up. Send a photo to Delta Audio and we'll try to advise. Good luck.

I don't believe the GXL2200 has a power switch directly on the microphone itself. Would you be able to tell me how you are supplying phantom power to the microphone?

Use a screwdriver to pop off the switch actuator from the front of the microphone. Then, the oval, black sticker that has the red dot on it can be removed with a small screwdriver. Once that oval sticker is removed, you'll see the two screws that hold the switch in place.
