    Re: Need help with microphone

    Some things to check:

    1) In "Volume Properties", make sure your microphone is not muted.

    2) If your mic has a mute switch, make sure it's off.

    3) Did you plug your microphone into the right audio jack (should be the pink color-coded one)?

    4) In your "Sound" options (Start > Control Panel > Sound), check under the "Input Devices" tab to see if your microphone is not disabled.

      1 check
      2 check
      3 check
      4 check

      Yea, I even had an IT buddy go through all this and he is stumped also.

      The mic works just not any any of the 4 games I have been playing BF2, BF=PR, BF2142 or L4D

          Try running as an administrator. That seems to fix mic issues with VOIP programs like TS.

              Does the local test under sound and input setting work?

                Note that this should be done on a program-by-program basis. Don't log in as Administrator. Set the program's shortcut to run as Administrator. Otherwise you're throwing away all that nice security you paid for when upgrading to Vista.

                  If that is the green sound bar then yes. I have sound through my speakers. Just not in game.

                    We didn't ask something that may be important: is this a USB or analog microphone?

                        It looks like your problem solved itself but just out of curiosity, do you use onboard sound and Realtek HD drivers? if so, and if this problem comes back, check out this thread for a fix:http://www.tacticalgamer.com/battlef...t-working.html

                            I would say your Playback Mic setting is muted...not your Recording setting mate.

                              Ahh so the games use the recording setting to play voip in game?

                              If so then maybe that is the solution, maybe the recording volume was turned down or muted or set to record from a different source.

                              Glad it's working for you now. :icon14:
