Microphone problem


G

Guest

Well i just bought a brand new microphone headset, it has a built in mic in
the headphones. I connected the Mic connector into the mic port properly and
checked its the right one, i went to test it via testing sound hardware in
the control panel.

It cant pick up any sound, nor can any applications that require speech,
such as msn or Teamspeak.

I have changed the connections so the PC uses the front ports for it instead
of the back motherboard ports and the same problem persists, I can hear out
the headphones so its working and the sound drivers are working and theres no
problem with the motherboard.

Although, when i go into speech recognition in control panel, it comes up
with an error stating that the task cannot be completed as the engine cannot
be created, or something along the lines of that, is that the problem? Has
anyone got any suggestions to help?

thanks in advance,

Rich

Look through the Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices applet, Voice
tab, check the volume and make sure the microphone volume is up, etc..

Thanks for your reply :)

All the volumes are put to full, on msn though, now it actually records
sound but no sound, like it says its recording but you cant hear anything.
Where as when i first plugged it in msn wouldnt pick up any sound atall.

Also, the other tests etc. still pick up no sound, the headphones is plug
and play (not usb) and there is no manual or drivers to install.

still need help,

thanks,

I don't see how it can be diagnosed through this NG. You'll probably
have to do a Google search for other discussions, or take the setup
somewhere.
