Hooking up a microphone to a computer

Hi Mark - I'm having trouble hooking up a microphone to a computer. I can't get any sound from my speakers when I do and no one can hear me when I call on Skype. I have a Gembird microphone. Is this the right one? Thanks.

Any mic is fine. You will have to enable it in the sound mixer though.

Goto..
Start - Control Panel - Sound
Select Recording and then select Microphone.
Select Configure at the bottom of that window.
The next window will open and you will see Set Up A Microphone.

It will walk you through setting it up and making sure it is active.

Front 4 usb ports and microphone and headphone jacks don't work but the rear usb and speaker jacks do work. I've had the computer new since 2009 and they have never worked.


it sounds to me like the wires from the front panel connectors are not connected to the motherboard inside the computer case, open the case up find the front connectors wires inside and find out if there are any connectors on the motherboard to plug them into.
the reason the rear ones work is because they are soldered directly to the motherboard.
good luck.

How do I connect speakers


to connect speakers: You look at the back of your computer, there will be several small holes, most are color coded. the green hole is the output for speakers.
there is usually also a small arrow pointing away from the hole, this is the icon for OUTPUT. Other holes will have an icon for INPUT and for microphones.
If you have trouble seeing these things, you can just plug your speakers into the first hole. Goto YouTube and play a video, If you hear sound you have the right output. If no sound, try the speakers in the next hole. Continue until you hear the sound. ( this will not hurt the computer or the speakers )
NOTE: make sure the volume is turned UP on the speakers and the volume is turned UP on the computer.

Hooking up speakers


On the back of your computer tower (that thing with the power button on the front) you should see three small headphone jack looking thingies, with colored bands around them. Your speaker cord plugs into the green one, if you have a microphone, it goes in the pink one.

Your speaker set should have a wall wart type power supply, plug that into any convenient outlet, and plug the other end into the proper jack on your speakers.

The volume knob on your speakers is also an on-off switch, turn it on.

Not sure where to obtain new installation software


Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager. Look under the question mark and see if your network card is listed. If it is listed under the question mark, you don't have the drivers installed for it and you will need to get them from another computer in order to get the internet to work.

Where do i hook up my stero speakers to on my commputer


You should see the speaker sockets behind your computer. They will be usually marked audio out, audio in and microphone. If you have a 4.1 or higher sound card, then you may have upto 5 or more sockets. Simply plug in the speakers according to the colour.
