i've just bought a microphone+headphones set, (a simple, cheap one). the headphones work fine but i just cant hear anything coming out of the mic. i've checked and there's nothing muted, and when i try to record it doesnt record anything... I went back to the place i bought it from and it works there... the owner told me that i need to define the microphone, something like that... im using a sigmatel audio card (i think..)..
i tried to download drivers and such, but i failed... is it supposed to be that hard just to install a simple microphone? what could be the problem?

can you please help me?

On your audio control panel (the speaker in the task bar) click Options -> Properties -> recording -> and make sure microphone is checked, and if you want to, you can click the "advanced" button and apply a 10 dB boost to the mic signal when it records

hope that helped :whistling:
