I plug in my microphone into the jack but my computer doesnt register it. My computer uses Vista, and the sound is Realtek High Definition Audio. A few days ago my mics were working just fine, but now, whenever I plug any of them in, the computer doesn't even register the fact that something is plugged into the microphone jack. I've tried to plug the microphones into both the jack in the front, and the one in the back, but still the same thing happens. I know for a fact that the problem isn't the microphones because I have tried all three on my friends computer, and his can register each one just fine. I would appreciate help on how to fix this ASAP
Yes I've tried that. I'll go into control panel, click on hardware and sound, then click on sound. It gives me three tabs, one for playback, one for recording, and one for those computer sounds, like when you click. Anyways, whenever I have my microphone plugged in, I'll click on the tab that says Recording, it says no audio devices are installed, and gives me no further options to do anything else.
