Microphone not being recognized

I was trying to get in-game chat to work but my microphone is not being recognized. after following all tech instructions and seeing if drivers needed to be updated (they were fine), i am still having no luck. the microphone plugs into the back (non-usb type) and requires no software. any ideas are much appreciated!

    yes, i was sure to check, double-check, then triple-check that it was plugged in correctly and the microphone itself is not set to "mute". i am legendary for making those types of mistakes.... :)

  • n00ber Aug 02, 2008

    there is a game "repair" function, which i did run, but everything came up clean. i ran through every possible in-game problem with blizz tech support, but everything was set up properly. tech support had me navigate to my sound recorder (windows menu, all programs-accessories-entertainment-sound recorder) and they had me attempt to make a short recording using the microphone. it failed to make a recording there, which apparently indicates that my computer is not recognizing that my microphone even exists.i'm pretty comfortable with that assessment...i just need to figure out *what* is going wrong.

  • n00ber Aug 13, 2008

    yes, it is plugged into the appropriate hole, and just for giggles i did switch it around to make sure nothing was backwards. didn't work that way either (which is good i guess!)

My sound & audio dvice is not working, i can't even hear any sounds when i play music. i can't even hear other party's voice every time i chat.


Try going to the start menu and bring up control panel...click on hardware and sound....then click sound...then manage audio properties...here you can see if the sound card is present and that the computer "see" it...you can hover the mouse over the item...right click and go to properties to get to the driver tab....check to see if you can update the drivers for the sound card...if your not sure which card you have then you need top remove the cover and look inside where the sound card is or if it is on the motherboard....if there is a card then you need to look on the board for a name & model number. With that info you can go online to the manufacturer website to download the latest drivers for the card and your type of O/S....If the sound is built in the motherboard then you will need to find the type and manufacturer of the board and then goto their website to see if there are updated drivers for the sound portion of the motherboard

My speakers work but my mic does not. I cant see any hardware for my mic


Note that the microphone is not listed individually in Device Manager because it works through your sound card. Perform the steps in the following sections in order, and then test to determine if your issue is resolved after each section.

NOTE: The microphone should be selected as the recording device in the Volume Control tool(sndvol32.exe).

To verify this, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Run.
  1. In the Open box, type sndvol32.exe, and then click OK.
  2. Click Properties on the Options menu.
  3. In the Adjust volume for box, click Recording.
  4. Click OK.
  5. In the Microphone box, verify that the Select check box is selected.
All the properties listed on the Playback section of the Volume control are independet of the recording settings. So you could record through the microphone by selecting it on the recording section, and mute it on the playback section. Then, you could record sound, but wouldn't hear it through the speakers while you are recording. Check Your HardwareIf your microphone has never worked, or if it has stopped working, first check the physical connection of the microphone. Verify that it is firmly plugged into the microphone port instead of the headphone or speaker port. If you are not sure which port is correct, you can check the sound card to see if it is marked (sometimes with a picture of a microphone), you can use a process of elimination, check the documentation that came with your hardware, or contact the hardware manufacturer. Sound Recorder
  1. Run the Sound Recorder tool: Windows 95Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to Multimedia, and then click Sound Recorder. Windows 98Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to Entertainment, and then click Sound Recorder.
  2. After Sound Recorder is running, click Record (the circle on the right side), and then speak into the microphone. If it is plugged into the correct jack, the line on the display should move up and down. If it does not move, sound is not making it through your microphone. If the line does move, press Stop, press Rewind, and then press Play to listen to your recording. If this works, but it does not work in your program, view the "Using the Microphone in Programs" section in this article.
  3. Still Cannot Record
If you cannot record a .wav file after you follow the steps in the previous section, there may be a problem with your microphone property settings. To check these settings:
  1. Double-click the Speaker icon on the taskbar, and then verify that the Microphone slider is at the top and that the Mute check box is not selected. If Mute is selected, click to clear the check box.
  2. Select Properties from the Options Menu. Select Recording and click OK. Verify that theSelected check box under Microphone is checked, and that the Microphone slider is at the top.
  3. Try recording a .wav file again.

Have in built sound card in D845HV mother board. Experiencing heavy distortion as soon as the mic is connected. It was working well till last month.



Distorted or scratchy sound can be caused by several problems. Improving the sound can be as simple as rearranging your hardware components. The following suggestions may resolve the problem of scratchy sound:
  • Are there any other devices around the speakers or wires for the speakers? Electro-magnetic interference can cause poor audio. Try moving your speakers and wires around and away from other devices.
  • Have you recently added any new cards to your computer? Cards within the computer can also cause electro-magnetic interference. Try moving the card to another location within the computer, if possible.
  • Verify that you are not encountering a hardware issue with the speakers you have by trying another pair of computer speakers.
  • Poor audio quality or low volumes may occur if you are using passive (non-amplified) speakers.
  • Are your speakers too close to your monitor? The speakers can pick up electrical noise from your monitor so move them farther away. Subwoofers should never be placed near the monitor because their powerful magnets can interfere with the picture. They should be on the floor to maximize low-frequency transmission.
  • Are you experiencing sound problems only with particular games or programs? If you notice sound problems such as stuttering voices and static on some games or programs but not others, check with the software vendor for a software patch.
Data courtesy of: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-020642.htm

Also make sure to inspect your microphone, and the cord that connects it to your PC, for physical damage.

If you're still experiencing issues, you may need to replace the your microphone.

I hope this helps.
