I actually had this problem before and for some reason by default my computer decided to mute the microphone. Just click on the little speaker icon in the lower left corner and just check that. From there it's just trial and error. Check sound drivers, check to see if another mic works in it.

A simple mistake that I have made in the past is that the mic is turned off. Is there a switch on the mic, and if so, make sure it's on. :)

After that, check in your mixer (Usually a speaker icon in your system tray) and make sure the mic isn't muted, and the volume is up. Also, if you have a mic boost, enable it. Try screaming at the mic, sometimes it's working, but really quiet.

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

Where is my physical micropone in a dell 8400? speaker


Rolf,
There is no physical mic on the system. You will need to purchase a mic and plug into the port on the back of the desktop in the pink port.
This jack is used to attach a standard personal computer microphone. Connect the audio cable from the microphone to the microphone jack.

Thank You,

The microphone does not work.


Make sure the mic is plugged in to the purple jack on the back of the machine - also make sure that the mic port is selected for recording - check control panel -> sounds and audio devices -> advanced under "device volume" - this will bring up the Volume Control - select Options -> properties -> recording and make sure that the Select box is checked under the microphone slider.

Cant get the mic to work on my dell , using xp. whats the deal


Open volume control.
When the box with all the sliders opens up click on OPTIONS (top left)
Click PROERTIES
Tick RECORDING then clck OK
The slider box will swap to the RECORDING slider box
Select the one you want to use as the recording SOURCE and put a tick in the box at the bottom. (in your case MIC)
You can also set the recording level here too. (1/2 way is a good starting point)
Now click OPTIONS once again
Then PROPERTIES
Now tick PLAYBACK and then OK
You should now be back in the normal playback slider box
Whilst you were in the properties for either recordeing or playback you may have noticed a list of devices to show then as sliders tick them as needed

I bought a Logitech webcam and the sound won't come though. It states my input level is not high emough but I can't find it to change it please


My understanding is that a webcam is only a webcam not a webcam+mic (mic=microphone for sound to be input) unless your webcam has video and sound capabilities.

1. get a mic
2. if you webcam is supposed to be also a mic, (I have yet to see one of those myself) you should hook up the connector for the microphone (usually a a red trs plug/connector) to your pc.
3. make sure your have run the video/sound wizard of your instant message application to test your video, mic and speakers. (to see, talk and be heard and hear what the others are saying)

are you trying to hear what the other person is saying when having a video conversation?
1. check your speakers are properly connected, powered and turned on.
2. check your speakers (and mic aswell) are not muted (check your speaker icon on the system tray and check your volume controls by doing right and/or left click on the speaker icon on the system tray.
3. make sure your have run the video/sound wizard of your instant message application to test your video, mic and speakers. (to see, talk and be heard and hear what the others are saying)
4. make sure your sound adapter's drivers are installed and your device is working properly (check device manager by going to start>run> type devmgmt.msc the press enter and make sure that under sounds you don't have any ? (no drivers) or ! driver problem for your sound adapter.
