    my PC was in bad shape, so i sent it to the servicing guy(he reinstalled the os)..and today when it came back..the first thing i thought of doing was recording a song..and poof!!!

    i plugged in the mic..and tried recording my voice on both audacity as well as windows sound recorder but..the result = blank!!

    so i tried checking the sounds and audio devices settings thru control panel..but still couldnt figure out anything...so guys if u have any clue...then gimme any and every suggestion u can possibly think of...coz i dont wanna be muted at igt soundtrack forum ..forever!! :p:

    help :help: yelp

    I am just guessing well it depends on which kind of OS do u have and these setting may show differently on your computer. Here's the screen shot do check this. another thing is try starting the PC with mic connected to it.

    You can check whether the MIC is muted in the volume control or not. Or rather check if the MIC is ok or not.

    He must not have installed the sound drivers...
    Install your sound card drivers from your motherboard cd
    Or if he has installed, it must be a wrong driver...

    Check the name of your sound drivers. Then download them.
    Go to run < type dxdiag > click on the sound tab
