Hi I recently bought a condenser microphone with an XLR to audio jack 3.5mm three-pin cable. I wanted to record vocals on it by using it with my HP laptop(W 8.1)
But as I plugged in the jack ,it shows 'not plugged in' in the recordings tab and recognizes it as a headphone in the playback tab of the Sounds window. I have tried updating and reinstalling drivers and also experimented using on other systems. The message persists. I really need help ASAP. Thanks...

I would think it would go in the Mic Jack , not the Audio Jack.

 

If it is infact in the Mic jack , then check your Audio settings Configuration.

Or what are your Laptop Specs , Make and Model ,

Hi
My laptop is a Hp Notebook x15. And it only has a single jack for both mic input and audio output. (Sorry for not mentioning that) In the playback tab , it recognises it as headphones and in the recording tab , displays it as 'not plugged in' .
