External mike doesn't work

\015 Using a Dell Inspiron 9300. I want to use an external mike, but when I plug it into the jack, the computer doesn't see it. I've tried a new mike, with the same problem. When I use a headset (plugged into a USB port), the mike works (I rather use an external mike instead of a headset, because it's a nosebleed to get the headset and boom miked synched up).\015

Answers :

I'm assuming you have Windows Vista. If so, you may need to change the default microphone, particularly if you have a built-in microphone on the computer.
\015\0121. Right-click the speaker icon next to the clock in the system tray.
\015\0122. Select "Recording Devices"
\015\0123. Select "Microphone" or whatever item you want to record with.
\015\012There will be a VU meter showing the input level. Try talking into you mike and see if the VU meter goes up. If so, you're good to go.
\015\012If not:
\015\0121. Click the "Properties" button in the screen mentioned above
\015\0122. Move the "Volume" and "Boost" sliders up.
\015\0123. Click "OK."
4. Check your VU meter again.
\015\012If this does not work it is possible you selected the properties for the wrong device. Click on another device and repeat the last 4 steps again.
