I feel like I've tried everything..
First of all, I'm using XP.
At first, many months ago, I bought a Logitech gaming headset/mic and when I couldn't get it to work on my computer I just assumed it was a faulty mic. Logitech sent me another one free of charge, and that one didn't work either. I gave up until a few days ago, I went and bought a cheap desktop mic...it doesn't work.
The jack is pink, so it's in the pink mic jack on the back of the computer. I don't know much about sound cards and all that, but as far as I can tell I'm using a Sound Blaster Live 24 bit, which apparently is up-to-date, and my computer tells me it's working just fine.
I've messed with the Volume Controls over and over again, making sure that nothing is muted, and when I click on Properties, the ones I have checked are: Playback Control, Wave, CD Audio, MIDI, and Line-In. In Recording, the ones checked are: Microphone, Line-In, S/PDIF-In, and Auxiliary. Then in the Record Control, I check Microphone. When I go to the Sound Recorder, nothing happens. But here's something that confuses me...every time I open the Volume Control, Line-In is muted (which I unmute every time) and in Record Control Line-In is selected (and I select Microphone every time). Is that the problem? It seems like it would be..but how to I get it to stay they way I put it (so nothing is muted and Microphone is selected)?
Any tips and/or ideas will be greatly appreciated. All I want to do is be able to talk to people in a Yahoo conference..something that should be so simple!
Thanks in advance!
