Rt. click the volume control icon from your notification area or the control panel and choose advance settings and make sure the microphone line in level is not at zero. Open your recording program (like sound recorder from Accessories>Entertainment) and you should be able to record sound input from your microphone.
If you're still having trouble, follow the steps here or here (http://www.logicaltips.com/LPMArticle.asp?ID=610)
Also be aware that there's a great freeware recorder available online called Audacity available from here

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Why does my computer tell me my cou1 mic has malfunctioned everytime I plug it into the usb port?


Sounds like a defective mic. Test it on another computer, with another USB cable, and if it still doesn't work, call customer service and they'll send a replacement.

I have a dynex dest mic and it is not working


See if your computer is setup correctly to use it. go to my computer ---control panel ---sound.
Also check the volume control and make sure the mic is'nt muted. If this is a USB mic drivers
may need to be installed for it. Check the device manager and see if there is any problems
under my computer ---- view system information ---- Hardware -- device manager. If this is an
analog mic make sure its plugged into the soundcard correctly. If using front plugs on the computer
make sure the soundcard is set to use front mic.

I have a mic that i just found in my dads desk. its a CT329 however when i plugged it into the back of my computer into the mic plug nothing happeed and i cannot record with it. i have checked my recording...


Until you have your PC recognizing that it has a microphone input, regardless of the actual mike being attached, it will never use one.

Find the Sound properties or get into the software that controls your soundcard and make sure it supports a mike and that the level is not tuned down.

ATR3350 Microphone: Battery in. Plugged into laptop. Recorded video. ATR3350 Mic is ignored. Audio is still recorded from my Logitech Webcam software. How does this thing work?


You need to tell your computer which microphone / sound source to use.
In he absence of other instructions it is defaulting to the built in microphone.
Normally your sound-card software should detect a new device plugged in and ask you to confirm it. However if it is not doing so you may need to change the audio settings.
How to correct this will vary slightly depending on which operating system you are using.

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


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). If your webcam/ microphone is built in to the laptop there should also be a volume control called 'Internal MIC' - disable it by placing a check-mark in the mute box.


NOTE if microphone (or internal MIC) 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 but it is possible you may also need to turn off the microphone in the software for your web-cam.

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.

Computer wont recognize the microphone on the turtle beach x4


Can you try using the X1 mic on your PC? Green plug to green jack, pink plug to pink jack, USB plug to USB port. Talk into the X1 mic. Can you hear your voice? If yes, then you probably have a bad chat-controller cable. If no, then your X1 mic may not be working. If that's the problem, you should contact Turtle Beach tech support for help.

Acknowledging Microphone


Sounds like the mic is bad. The only way to confirm this is to plug a different mic into the computer and see if that works. If the second mic gives no sound then the computer may have an issue. Hope this helps.
