Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Hi i have an hp pavilion dv2000 lap top, i am trying to record my acoustic guitar into the comp. This lap has conexant high definition audio sound card inbuilt. However when i try and plug a microphone into the mic socket nothing happens, the mic does work i have tried through an amp, i have also tried to plug guitar directly into lap still nothing. Why wont it work? (the computer is 4 months old), thank you.


Answers :

The mic may be muted on the computer. In XP, double click the volume control icon in the bottom right of the screen to get the mixer. If you don't see the microphone input, go to 'options' then 'properties' and place a check in the box to show it. Then make sure it is unmuted and the volume is up.
\015\012In Vista, right-click the volume icon and choose recording devices and make sure it is on and volume up.
