Windows Microphone problems..

a few months ago i had the mic plugged in, everything worked just well. then i installed the winTV card i got, had to plugg out microphone and plug in some audio cable in same whole where the mic was to get sound of the stuff i was ripping.

when i now unplugged the audiocable to put back the microphone it aint working.. very annoying.. to try it out i press "record" button in "sound recorder" ...nothing. tryed some different things in playback/recording mixer with mute,micro,line-in and so on..at one point i got the mic but i heared myself in the speakers..

anyway...does anyone know whats wrong? need some help...

Try the mic on a diff PC to rule out whether its a mic prob or PC prob.

If its a PC prob, then perhaps uninstall and reinstall audio drivers. Or if this is a separate audio card diff from the onboard audio, try that one.

A:
There is an amplifier on your card that got turned (look for a "+20db" check box or something similar).

B:
Make sure the input device ha snot changed for whatever reason. (ie microphone is not the set for the right card)

C:
Is there a check box somewhere for "digital Input" or something similar?

Have had issues with that on Creative Cards- the mic is analog, but somehow the digital connection is switched on, making it useless.

Since you did have some kind of signal form the mic, doubt B or C are the issue.

I had an issue once where after running a particular application the output in teamspeak would be what my computer was outputting, I.E an MP3 would broadcast.

I had to change the input back to microphone to fix it each time I exited this particular program.

We just figured you were serenading us with your honey-like voice

Perhaps you've just not heard Shug's or Mach's voice... its like an aural orgasm for men and women... tho mostly men.

Actually my wife likes Brody's voice... I think I heard her calling his name out the other night... but that was probably just my imagination
