I assume you're troubleshooting a problem with your microphone, since you mentioned that.

1. Verify all physical connections are all the way in. Speakers and microphone sometimes stop before they are all the way in.

2. Verify that you have sound (play music or any sound file). If Windows Media Player gives you an error, google it (use caution here). If there is no sound and no error message, reinstall driver for audio (from Mfg website or "Driver" CD that may have come with your computer).

3. Use Control Panel, Sound, to check for settings that mute sound (check boxes). If you change anything document it carefully beforehand and test frequently, as there are many settings. If you change something and it does not fix the problem, it is a good idea to change it back right away--unless it's obviously wrong (mute checked).

3. If all else fails, try the illogical solution that sometimes works for me: Remove the microphone plug from the back of the PC (plug and port are usually pink). Plug it into the wrong hole (blue or green), then plug it in where it belongs. Every 8 years I find a microphone that is not fixed by any of the usual (logical) fixes. And this has worked twice for me.

Computers, you can't live with em, and you can't live without em!

Hope this helps. Please rate the answer. It's my first post!

Please also seperate two questions from now on. It's impossible to tell which one you are still trying to solve. I know nothing about deleting people.

New microphone will not record...please advise.


There are two separate settings in control panel for record and playback - see below



Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same applies for Internal mic.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

Friends say When i speak sounds like Static any 1 know how to change setting or find it in computer. Im using Satellite Fusion


The external microphone itself could be the culprit, or its connection to the 3.5mm port could be flaky. To test the theory do this:

1 Connect an external microphone to the computer.

2 Click Start, point to All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, then click Sound Recorder.

3 Click the Record button and speak normally into the microphone.

>>>> WIGGLE THE CONNECTION AT THE LAPTOP OR FLEX THE MIC CABLE WHILE RECORDING. Maybe even narrate what you are doing while you record your voice. "Flexing cable near mic, now near plug..." <<<<

NOTE: You can only record 60 seconds at a time.

4 When you have finished recording, click the Stop button.

5 To hear what you just recorded, click the Play button.
6 To save the file, select Save from the File menu.

>>>> If you hear crackling in the playback that correlates with your handling of the cable then bad seating or a bad cable are the problem. <<<<


Adjusting recording quality

The better the quality of the recording, the more disk space the sound file requires. Experiment to find a balance that fits your needs.

1 Open Sound Recorder, if necessary (click Start, point to All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, then click Sound Recorder).

2 In the Sound Recorder window, click Edit, then click Audio Properties.

3 In the Audio Properties window, adjust the Sound Playback quality and volume, and the Sound Recording volume.

4 Click OK.


Your new settings take effect the next time you record.

Dell dimension4600. microphone does not work. I have a portable microphone connect to the pink mic connection.


it might be a bad mic or it may be your mic settings
its worth looking into, try connecting a audio source to it when you are configuring it and have the volume control for the microphone (on the playback section) so that you can hear it when it starts working

Sound on webcam


Hi,
it could be simply the program you are using. Try it in yahoo messenger or msn

It could be that your voice is too strong.(or to bass) Hi noise levels create cut-out voices.
So turn your microphone volume way down, and your program volume UP a little and tweak it.

It could also be the microphone thats built in to the cam. Try plugging in a separate microphone into your computer and see how that performs.

Thank you and good luck.
