Hoping someone can help with this problem. I often record tapes from a cassette player via a lead into the mic jack and record into MP3. THis has worked fine for a long time, and i use a simple recording software, and can hear what i am recording through my pc speakers.

however..... all of a sudden, i now get no sound coming from my speakers on my pc.....but i can still record, and the recording software shows the level of audio coming thru. It is now really difficult to record as I cant hear and adjust the record volume.

all my other prgrams work fine....when i play any kind of sound file on my pc, it plays back as it should. it is only when i plug in to the mic jack that nothing comes out.

any ideas.

regards,

alex

Are you using a sound card? If so, what kind?

Not to point out the obvious, but go through ALL of your settings for the sound and make sure that they're set properly. Then, go through all of the settings for your recording software, and again, check to make sure that they're set properly too.

I actually have a similar issue, when I use chat (voice chat) and some other programs that require the use of a mic, either my sound card programs, or windows itself likes to toy with the settings so that I have to scratch my head and figure out which buttons to click on and/or off. Usually, my mic or output settings has changed, and turning them back on will fix the problem.

HI,

I have a Conexant AMC Audio....will continue to look around and fiddle here and there and see what happens. It is possible that some piece of software, or I myself have changed something one day that has caused this prob.

Yes, it's quite possible that you've changed something, probably without knowing it. It's also possible that the software has defaulted back to a different setting which is the cause of the problem(s). I know that when my sound and/or mic stops working, it's because I've started a few different programs that have different settings, so I have to go back and figure out what has changed.

You said that you're running Conexant AMC audio....is that a sound card, onboard audio, or a software program?

Also, have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the programs that you're having issues with, including the audio drivers? Sometimes this is a "quick fix" to problems.

Im pretty sure Conexant is the sound card. I might try reinstalling it. It could possibly be an issue with media monkey (audio software similar to winamp) - which i have only had for a few months now. If reinstalling the driver doesnt work, then Ill try uninstalling media monkey.

Thanks for your help. ill see how I go in the next few days (when i get time to do this)

regards
