Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop ?

I am tring to configure a DELL OPTIPLEX GX280 to be a shoutcast/winamp radio station using the audio line-in jack to be used as the input. Shoutcast/winamp will play a CD onto the internet just find. But when I switch to Line-in it act as if the linein is muted or some thing. The system is running Windows XP Pro service pack 3.


Answers :

Open up your audio controls the speaker icon on the taskbar right click and select open volume controls, now select options then properties at the top select audio in with a check mark and any mixer settings you see fit. now simply turn the volume up accordingly.

another option you have is to go into the options properties windows and select recording tab and put a check mark in the ones you want using properties again. now mixer settings should be available under recording, select your devices and see what works. one of them is going to give you sound from the external player. note: under playback and not recording macke sure it is not muted or loweredall the way so you can hear the sounds as well.
