Hey! I recently brought a new sound card for my computer but now, whenever i plug in my mic, it doesn't work at all. The mic is as if it is muted to every1 and doesn't register when i plug it in. I tried many other mics but they all don't work. How can i fix it?
OK this happens all the time. First I am assuming that your old card is either disabled/uninstalled (in the bios and in windows if on board) and that the new card has all the drivers properly installed. Go to start - run and type sndvol32.exe. This should bring up windows volume control. Make sure the Microphone isn't muted and that it has the gain turned up enough to hear yourself talk through your speakers. Also don't test this by plugging your mic into any front case ports. Plug it directly into the back of the new card. You may have to use any audio program that came with the card instead of the windows volume control. Best of luck.
