Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Logitech microphone k i have a 2 in 1 set which includes both microphone and head phones my headphone parts work perfectly but not my microphone even my friends say that they cant hear me and i dont get whats wrong its pluged in ?


Answers :

1 - Check to see if you plugged the microphone into the PINK socket (I know I might be sounding like I'm talking down to you but the most common problem is people just jamming the plug into any color hole but you need to use color co-ordination like pink to pink ... green to green, It wouldnt be the first time someone has said to me "Oh I though Blue and Green look quite spiffing together")

2 - See that little speaker icon in your task bar next to the time? Double click on it and look for the microphone ... Mute it ... Trust me, you do not want feedback in your ears! I know too many people with tinitus!

Next keep the new window you just opened open, Click on "Options" then "Properties" ... Then select "Recording" ... In the little tick boxes check that the microphone input is ticked then click "OK"

The window for the sound will now have changed to the INPUT sounds, Or RECORDING as I like to put it ... Turn the microphone all the way up and select the tick box under it to make sure that anything listening for you uses the microphone input, Yes you can change it to line in or cd and play music over the internet but you want the mic I'm guessing.

Next click options one last time and select advanced controls (If its not ticked already) and see if an optional button appears below the microphone slider.

Click the now appeared button (Normaly "Advanced") and choose the +20 Db boost.

Now when you talk to someone it should work ... If someone says your distorted or too damn loud turn that microphone slider in the recording option down a few notches and try again until you get the desired sound ... If it still doesn't work then get hold of me and we can figure something out.
Have you checked the settings under control panel/sounds and audio devices?
open that up click the voice taband under voice recording press the volume button, check to see if the check box has a tick in it under microphone and that the volume is turned up. try the test hardware button to test your mic and adjust the levels from within the wizard.

hope this gets you headed in the right direction
