I have Windows XP. When I record something on Sound Recorder, then I put
play, all I hear is this little disturbing sound and the green line or
whatever you call it barely moves. I've checked everything but I can't fix
anything. Please help. Thanks.

If you verified everything, that doesn't leave much to be wrong! Correct
microphone and plug? Tested a second mic? Mic volume turned up? Correct
drivers?

Glad it's fixed, was the the one where the microphone volume was turned
all the way down?

I went to 'Edit', then clicked on 'Audio Properties'. Then I clicked on the
tab 'Volume' for the Sound Recording. That takes me to a window labeled
'Recording Control'. There are 5 scroll bars...at the bottom of each scroll
bar there's a little box that you can click to mute it. The scroll bars are:
Recording, Stereo Mixer, Mic, Line In, CD Player. So the mute selection was
on the Stereo Mixer little box.
