Check your sound properties, (2click the small speaker icon on the system tray) and see if the mic option has been muted out, which is usually the default settings of windows.

How to connect mike in computer

  • Look for the sound card on the back of the computer. This will have a 15-pin connector and several colored jacks.

  • Locate the microphone jack. Although some manufacturers will stray from the norm, the microphone jack is typically colored red or pink and/or will probably have a picture of a microphone.

  • Connect the microphone into the jack.

  • Click "Start," then click "Control Panel," then click "Hardware and Sound," then click "Manage Audio Devices" under the "Sound" category. This opens the "Sound" window.

  • Click the "Recording" tab. Here you will see a picture of a microphone. To the right of the picture should be a sound bar.

  • Test the microphone by speaking into it. If the sound bar lights up, then the microphone is plugged in correctly and ready to use. If the sound bar remains gray, then there is no signal. Try another jack on your sound card and repeat the steps to test your microphone. If you still can't get the microphone to work review your computer documentation or contact the manufacturer's technical support.

    I am trying to use a new Logitech USB desktop microphone with my Mac OS X version 10.4.11. It seems to be working beecause the screen icon fluctuates when I speak, but I cannot find a way to record...

    please keep the microphone a bit away from ur screen... its because, powerful electro magnets will be ther in the microphone... wen u keep it very close to the screen, the waves cause the fluctuation in the screen which wil shorten the life off ur screen

    I cant get my built in mic to work for my acer travelmate 2313LCi..?

    I'm assuming your speakers work and you're running Windows XP. Please correct me if otherwise.

    There are two settings for the microphone in Windows XP. One is for the volume of the mic you hear through the speakers. The other is for the recording volume of the microphone (and the volume others here when you speak to them through Skype or another program).

    First check the recording volume:
    Volume Manager (double click on speaker icon on your taskbar) -> Options -> Properties -> Recording -> OK -> Make sure the Microphone slider is at least halfway turned up and make sure the Microphone is selected

    Next check the playback volume:
    Volume Manager -> Options -> Properties -> Playback -> OK -> Make sure the Microphone isn't muted and adjust the volume according to your preferences
