Check your contact and wiring where you plug the cable in. If it got a knock maybe there is a cracked solder.

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 the Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate the SOUND PLAYBACK box and click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a tick (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.


Also make sure that the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


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


NOTE if 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.


That should be it.


However - if you cannot get enough volume on the microphone you may need to purchase a pre-amplifier to boost the signal strength before input to the computer.

I have a Sennheiser E815S microphone and I want it to work on my PC( Compaq) what can I do to get it to work and sound coming out from it


The Sennheiser E815S is a dynamic microphone so should be fine to use with your computer, although the output level may not be very high.
The connection on the rear of the mic is a 3 pin (balanced xlr) but a standard microphone input on a pc is a 2 pin (mono) unbalanced 2.5mm jack socket. Mini jack plugs are a pain to solder and the thick balanced (sleeve plus 2 cores) cable is unlikely to fit inside the plug anyway so you would do better to buy a pre-made on than try to make your one (it would probably work out cheaper too).
Try to avoid using plug to plug adapters as they are prone to problems.

If the mic mute switch is not on and there is no red light in the mic arm then its likely you have a check in the 'mute mic' box in your sound manager. Open Volume control, choose options->properties-> recording. Check for checks in the boxes and remove them. Also make sure the slider for the mic is about half way up.
