  • microphone not working at all

    Two days ago i logged onto our TF2 server and found out my mic wasnt working. I checked to see it was plugged in, and it was, so i figured it was just broken.

    Today i bought a new desktop microphone, but the problem persists. I cannot talk in any games, and i cannot get the little voice recorder that comes with windows XP to record anything.

    I have no idea why it went from working 3 days ago to not working 2 days ago. Any suggestions?

    id say it was deeper than just the mic, possibly a sound card problem, im not too sure, try a driver update, then replugging mic and try again

      Did you try it on TS or in another game?
      Did you change any of the settings in game?

        One thing to remember as a fallback option: you can use a USB headset to get around the issue if it's your soundcard. I had to do that with my crapulent mobo. Works like a charm.

          i also just went to the USB mic, I've got 5.1 headset that uses the soundcard though. Everyone in game says it sounds much better that my old mic that used the jack.

          ps, hey man what happened to your supporting member badge, its not showing up?

            Updated my soundcard driver but it didnt do anything. Whats odd is that when I look in my computer, i dont know what the heck the soundcard actually is. The only cardish thing i see is the graphics card.

            Machowner, im not a SM because i cant really pay for it. Since i dont play BF2 anymore (at least until FH2 comes out) I dont need to pay the SM to be an admin.

                Did you check if your mic works with TS?

                If it works there, check the sound settings in the control panel. Make sure that it really is your sound card selected and not some other device driver or input that may be on your system.

                  Check the Sounds and Audio Devices in your Control Panel. Check the recording device (Under the Audio tab), if there is more then one option try selecting a different device. Also make sure your mic isn't muted (volume button in the same menu).

                  But then again, you not having a mic is better. You talking destroys my in game sound on TF2.

                    Try if your mic will work in our TS server first Santa before you decide on doing something more complicated to resolve the issue.

                      A USB microphone works. I guess the pink port or whatever you call it was just screwed up somehow.

                        It could still be a software setting in the sound control panel and the USB headset changed those settings. Double check that because it's a bit annoying setting up a separate sound device for mic input with Battlefield 2/2142.

                          ye well hopefully with the USB you will be able to be much clearer, and problems should be much easier to fix aswell
