Does it show up in control panel-sound. Is it enabled as the default device for recording? Has it been muted with a tick in the checkbox? Are your device drivers up to date?

In the control panel under
"Hardware and Sound", then
"Manage Audio Device", then
"Recording" tab says:
High Defenition Audio Device
Not Plugged In
....but the mic is plugged in and I connected another one, brand new just to check.

are you using the front jacks or the rear ones, go to Control Panel, Sound, select mic and then go to properties, see which jack is enabled for this device

Problem fixed...updated my sound drivers...or should I say downgraded
to the drivers that came from Dell when I bought my PC (XP OS).
Thanks for your help.
