How to connect mike in computer

  • Look for the sound card on the back of the computer. This will have a 15-pin connector and several colored jacks.

  • Locate the microphone jack. Although some manufacturers will stray from the norm, the microphone jack is typically colored red or pink and/or will probably have a picture of a microphone.

  • Connect the microphone into the jack.

  • Click "Start," then click "Control Panel," then click "Hardware and Sound," then click "Manage Audio Devices" under the "Sound" category. This opens the "Sound" window.

  • Click the "Recording" tab. Here you will see a picture of a microphone. To the right of the picture should be a sound bar.

  • Test the microphone by speaking into it. If the sound bar lights up, then the microphone is plugged in correctly and ready to use. If the sound bar remains gray, then there is no signal. Try another jack on your sound card and repeat the steps to test your microphone. If you still can't get the microphone to work review your computer documentation or contact the manufacturer's technical support.

    Look on the back of your computer for GREEN and PINK and BLUE sockets.

    PINK - plug a microphone into this socket.
    BLUE -- plug an audio-device (CD-player, iPod, cassette deck) into this "audio-in" port
    GREEN - plug your speakers into this "audio-out" port.

    Connect the speakers to an AC power-outlet.

    I plugged my Microphone in the pink slot and it doesn't work on Vent, nor does my computer picks up the microphone

    Make sure the Front Pink In is enabled.

    Find the Volume icon in your Taskbar (little speaker, Right Click - Open Volume Control) or in Control Panel / Sound and Audio Devices. Find Device Volume / Advanced and uncheck the Front Pink In Mute box and slide the volume UP.

    They wont give out sound there plugged into the front of the computer and in the outlet plug in BUT IT WONT WORK :( help

    Be sure to plug into the "green" socket on the front of the computer, not the "pink" (microphone) or "blue" (headphone output from iPod) socket.

    Try the speakers in the "green" socket on the back of the computer, to ensure that the speakers work, and the volume control is "high", and that you have not "muted" your speakers.

    Some motherboards have a small "jumper" to enable/disable the front audio-output sockets.

    Try the speakers when connected to the headphone-output from your iPod, to confirm that they work -- they could be quite quiet.

    I can not use my computer microphone for live talk my computer acer aspire 5570z, other person to whom I talk can not hear my voice

    Make sure the microphone jack plugged into the right jack socket
    and that the microphone is plugged into the socket at the front of the pc.

    In WinXP go to Control Panel\Sounds and Audio\Voice\Test hardware, this will test your mic by recording from it and playing it back.

    If you are using a sound card go through the software setting.
