Go to Control Panel to "Sound and Audio Devices"
Select the Audio tab, select the device you want.
Sometimes, you have to go as far as going to the Device manager
(right click My Computer/Properties/device Manager) and select the microphone under the Multimedia options and disable it.
This should disable the ON BOARD microphone built in.
Then you can plug yours in the MIC jack.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

My computer doesn't see mic when I plug in to the jack


First, did you plug in the microphone when the computer was off or not? If you connected the microphone while the computer was on, it may not have seen the new device to load the drivers. If the computer found the microphone when it was turned on, then the problem could be driver or hardware related.

You need to make sure that the computer is seeing this as the recording device. Click Start and select Control Panel from the right hand column. Click on the Hardware and Sound link. Select the Manage Audio Devices link under Sound. Click on the Recording tab. Is the microphone listed as plugged in? If it isn't, then the microphone isn't making good contact with the jack, has a bad wire or the jack isn't working. If you have another computer, check if the microphone works on it. That will rule out the microphone being faulty. Next go back to the starting Hardware and Sound Control Panel. Look for the link to the Device Manager under Devices. Expand the section for audio inputs and outputs. Check for a red triangle with an x or yellow triangle with an exclamation point. This indicates a problem with the audio drivers. Check with Toshiba for the audio drivers for your computer and the current service pack for Vista. You may need to uninstall the current driver and then reinstall that driver. A final option may be to check if the external audio input was disabled in the BIOS. When you turn on the computer, you should see a screen that tells you how to access the BIOS. (Usually this is F1, Esc, Del or F2). I find pressing the appropriate key repeatedly after turning on the computer doesn't always work. If you get to the Windows splash screen, turn off the computer at the login screen and try again.

If the microphone is plugged in, set it as the default device. You should be able to record with your software.

If the microphone still doesn't work with this computer and does work with another machine, you will probably be better off using a USB microphone or a USB audio adapter (USB to 3.5 mm microphone and speaker jacks). The wiring of the jack is probably faulty and it's not worth the effort to repair.

I hope this helps.

No sound


Webcam Audio Getting sound to broadcast with streaming video using a webcam requires a few components to work in unison. Because most webcams do not have a microphone built in, you will need to buy a microphone for your computer or locate your microphone input if you have one built in (some laptops have these). The audio and video are two separate functions and must be diagnosed as such. b> Webcam Software b> If you have a webcam set up correctly and you are streaming video, then you are already halfway there. This details only how to make the sound work, so please refer to an article related to webcam video if you do not have that working already. The webcam audio and video both communicate with your computer via your webcam's software application. Due to this, you will find that there are settings specific to your webcam software for sound. Because there are various software applications that can act as an interface for your webcam, you will want to do a product-specific search on the Internet for your application's settings. Most often you will find the settings for sounds under Tools or Settings, then choosing Options or Preferences. Regardless of the application that you are using to broadcast your webcam video, you will need to ensure that your microphone is plugged into the "Microphone In" jack on your computer or laptop. The microphone input jack is commonly colored pink. b> Microphone Connection b> With your microphone plugged into the "Microphone In" audio jack, test the audio inside your webcam's software application. Most webcam applications allow you test your microphone by reading a sentence and watching a graph move as you speak. If you see this happening, then you have correctly hooked up your microphone. If you have a Windows PC you should also see if your computer recognizes your microphone by clicking on "Start" > "Settings" > "Control Panel" > "Sounds and Audio Devices." Under the "Audio" tab you will find a section for "Sound Recording." From there you can select or change your "Default Device." b> Hardware Troubleshooting b> In the event that your microphone is not recognized by your computer, continue hardware troubleshooting by contacting your computer's support staff. With a properly connected microphone and some minor adjustments in your webcam's software application, you should be broadcasting audio with your video in no time. Hope this helps.

When I plug in my Audio 625 Plantronics to my usb port it shows an error - Device not recognized, please help..


If you are using a Mac computer your Plantronics .Audio headset will not work The microphone plug on the .Audio analog headsets is not compatible with a Mac. It will physically fit into the Mic input jack on a Mac; however, it will not function. Basically, the digital sound card does not recognize the analog signal coming in from the headset.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

Where is the line in jack for my Gateway MC7321u Notebook? Is it one of the headphone jacks?


Some computers have a special jack labeled line in. If your computer does not have a line in jack, you can use the microphone jack. You can then adjust the volume of the device in control panel under sound options. The headphone jack is only for output. I have seen some computers where you plug in a cable to the microphone jack and you will be asked what kind of device it is.

I can't use my hp microphone keeps saying no audio input device


First of all check in the BIOS that the audio device is enabled. Then, in Device Manager, check that the sound device is properly recognized and it's driver is active - if not you will have to reinstall it. Finally , from the Realtek Control Panel check that the mic socket is correctly identified and active - take the mic out, start Realtek Control Panel, plug the mic and the corresponding icon should light up if all is ok. If it lights up but you still don't have a mic or it doesn't light up at all then the mic is dead , replace it.
If it lights up but it blink it means that it's not recognized so another window will popup, select the mic in it and it should work.

Headet and desktop microphone problem.


first check if you have the right drivers on your computer for your audio, if you have audio like mine go to realtek audio manager it should be right beside the clock, then click on the top right corner it says device advanced settings it opens another box that gives you options for recording like tie up same type of input jacks, ie. line-in or microphone,as an input device. and it has another one separate all input jacks as independent input devices you could try one of those if you have realtek audio manager theres other options to that might help and if you dont have that go to recording devices and see if your mic is working properly and if its set to default device

Realtek audio device with sound effect menager


First thing is first, there should be 3 audio jack inputs. Line in, Line out and Mic. Make sure you are plugged into the Mic input.

Next if you are running windows XP check to make sure the Microphone volume is not muted and turned up. Do this by going to control panel --> Sound and Audio Devices --> volume tab --> Advanced button. The Microphone volume should be there if not select file --> properties and make sure microphone is checked. It should then appear on the volume controls.

This should take care of it if not what program are you using the mic with?
