Can't get mic to work

  GarethW 15:51 16 Jul 2005

My kids have ben badgering me for a mic to use on msn messenger - i bought one but can't seem to get it to work! i've checked all the audio settings, its in the right socket, the mic is switched on, but it will not work. I have no problems listening to others, but others cannot hear me! This is not just a msn problem as it will not work with other programs eg skype, or recording. I have tried two different mics, so it is not a faulty piece of kit..........HELP!!

Have you run the audio wizard in MSN and have you tried turning the firewall off of to a lower setting.
