Microphone input socket change (front to rear)

  John Berriman 11:28 19 Mar 2006

I'm sure I've seen how to do this before but can't seem to find the right area of XP Help.

I have microphone input sockets at the front of my PC and the sound card input at the rear.

The PC is currently set up to use the front input, but I want to amend to the rear so I can keep the wire out of the way.

How do I do it? Any help gratefully recieved!

Thanks in advance.

There is an option in my sound properties/advanced under microphone to use an "alternate micrphone" i dont know if that means a different microphone or socket,as i have never tried,the only other option i have is to use the microphone socket for my centre speaker and subwoofer.

Just a thought have you just tried plugging the mic in the back socket? it may just work.

Under my Sound Options, I selected Microphone 'Advanced' and un-set 'Mic2 Select'. Simple in the end - thanks to all who read my post and replied!
