my Headset Mic Wont Work right now, and i dont know how to fix it. I know its not the mic itself, i just got a new one and tested it on my other computer. I bring it to this one but nobody can hear me on Ventrillo. I went to the Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Voice, and i did the Test Hardware but that didnt work. Any ideas?

Make sure the mic is pluged into the right recepticle and that your sound card has the mic turned on.

Do sounds work on this computer?
Do you have a speaker icon in your task bar?

If you do, double click on it and it should open a small window with controls for sound. Do you see one for mic input?

If not, click on "options" then "properties at the top, scroll down the list and tic the microphone box.

That will open the mic control in the panel.

Make sure "Mute" is not ticked.
