Microphone not working

  hawthorn59 00:53 22 Apr 2004


I have just, for the first time ever, attached a microphone to my pc. Its a brand new Dell P4 pc, and the microphone was in some package with it. I put it in the proper slot in the back according to the colour codes, and tried to record in Sound Recorder but no success. The "wave" line didnt even seem to be registering the sound. :(

Am I doing something wrong or is there another way to test it? I want to use it in messenger among other things.

try this:

check first of all you ahve not muted the mic in "control panel/sounds and audio devices/audio/volume.if so untick the mute tab.

if still not working try clicking start/run and type dxdiag and click ok.

click the network tab and click "directplay vioce options" clic run wizard and click next.follow instructions to test the mic.
