basics: using windows xp home, sp1, sound: sigmaTel audio.
toshiba dynabook laptop
i was fiddling around trying to get a mic to work,
i went into sounds and audio devices, properties- soundplayback&recording- properties and checked mic, which previously wasn't checked.
in my computers manual the only mic refered to is a mic jack that i want to use,
but on checking mic, it`s revealed that another mic is inbuilt, just over the fan, so its not the best to use.
the mic jack is next to a headphone jack so they basically act as audio in and out, but when i used nero to convert some tapes a long time ago, the headphone jack became the line in, which was odd but didn`t matter too much, i got my conversion.
after fiddling with the mic properties though, when i just tried to convert some tapes again, the mic/line in option that i used in nero before now only goes to the inbuilt mic.
even when i reverse the changes i made in audia devices.
can anybody please give me the faintest idea of what could be happpening?
