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
Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS
& AUDIO DEVICES
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.

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.
