my mic seems to have quit for some reason.was working ok a while ago,so i went & bought a new webcam/mike,installed the hardware,but still no sound when i try to talk.
my speakers /headphones work fine.is it possibe for just the mic port to crap out on the sound card & everything else to work ok on the card?
when i pull out the jack,then re insert it,there is a 'static' kind of noise.
any help would be appreciated.

connect head phones in mic port to check it . open sound recorder or some
other audio utility ; tap on the head phones or speak to it aloud ; if sound
is recorded then mic port is okay and mic needs to be checked & replaced ...

Yes it is possible to have one port go out while the others work.

Have you checked to see if the Mic has been muted?
Right click on the speaker icon in the notification area and select "Open Volume Control".
When the Master Volume box opens, look for the Mic setting.
If you can't see the Mic there then click on Options and select Properties.
In the Properties box you will see Mic Volume. Tick the box next to it, then click on OK.
The Mic Volume will then appear and you will be able to see if it is muted or if the level low.

Hope this helps
