Components for Building Computers From Scratch/microphone
I hooked up a microphone in the port on the back of my PC, turned on the speakers, clicked on the speaker icon to open the mixer, and turned the speaker on - but I don't hear anything recording hwen I talk into the mic. How does one get something to record? I never set one up before or used one. Thanks
Your windows sound manager has a volume control for `mike'. Make sure it is turned on and the `mute' box isn't checked. That should allow you to talk through your speakers. Don't crank it up too high though or you will get a lot of feedback. If you want to record something you need a program like Nero that comes free with most DVD burners.
