I currently am using a Logitech USB Headset. I am not quite sure on the type I have but I know it costed around $70. Well I plug in my headset and the sound works. But no one can hear my microphone. I do the audio test and the green line does not budge. How am I supposed tog et this to work? I tried everything. Pleas help!
I would like you to test your microphone on Windows Sound Recorder on your PC:
1. Click Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment and choose Sound recorder 2. Click record button and speak to see whether the green line moves to indicate the application picks the sound. 3. Click on Stop button and Play to check the sound. Make sure the device is selected 4. Click Edit Then Audio Properties and make sure that the correct device is listed as preferred device for Sound Recording.
"My sound works, and my microphone works when I do the sound check, but when I call people on messengers like xfire, they can't hear me. What's going on?"
Hey boss - if it works in sound check, but not in the messenger program, the program itself probably has an options/setup area where you can set your input device. Your default when you install a program is 99% of the time your sound card, and changing your sound properties in windows doesn't always change the sound properties in the 3rd party programs. Go into setup for xfire or whatnot and make sure input device is set to "Logitech USB Headset" or the like.
