click on volume control bar and it should bring up a mixer type window. Make sure the mic has not been muted, also when you installed operating sys did you discconect any cables?
Have you installed correct sound card drivers?
What operating sys have u upgraded 2?

If you want to replace sound card then you can usually disable onboard sound from the bios, but to be honest thats just more expense.

hope this helps abit

hi speedy thanks for the advice i havent upgraded just had to do a reinstall of xp. nothing seems to pick up the mic but all other sound is ok. i reinstalled the drivers. so i think ther might be a problem with the sound card. i tried another sound card and the mic works fine so will have to get a new one i think. cheers for your help though.
