  • mic boost in Vista?

    everyone is complaining they barely hear me on TS, and in game VOIP's... those programs are set up correctly, and I have the mic settings at 100% but I don't see that mic boost like was in XP...anyone know where the mic settings are to boost it?

    thx in advance.

    Well I'm not on my Vista machien right now so this may be a little off:

    Right click on the speaker icon in your task bar and go to properties (or the option that brings up the input/output devices).

    Go the recording tab and click on the device that is set as the default (probably microphone in this case) and click the "configure" or "Advance" button.

    There should be a tab that gives you a checkbox for a +20dB boost.


    Wish I could be more precise.

    You may want to check it the next time you start up your PC, a couple times mine switched off by itself.

      thx but the level control is there, I have it on 100% but no boost check box.

        I use Vista.

        Control Panel > Sound > Recording (Select your default mic) > Levels > Select Microphone boost level required. It goes up to +30% but can cause distortion, I'd suggest using +20%.

            Are you sure there is no checkbox in the general or advance tabs that says something like "+20dB boost"?

            What kind of X-fi do you have?

                      You have the devices "Microphone" and "Microphone FP" Is your mic plug into the back? Is it possible to switch devices and still have your mic work?

                          Not sure what's happening. Maybe Dell has a propiatory sound card? I have a X-Fi Platinum on Vista Buisness 32bit and it looks like this:

                            Well it's a X-Fi ExtremeGamer...but guess Dell probably did there own adjustments to it so guess I'll call them tomorrow and see.

                            thx
