skype: headphones and microphone.

#1
Bought this today not an expensive one £20, Logitech: internet voice chat.

Plugged into laptop, " you just plugged a device into audio jack" message appears.( 2 jacks, no markings/colours)
Play music no problem good stereo sound.
Microphone zilch, it is switched on, volume on lead is on 50%.

Operating windows 7 with realtek HD audio manager.

Without instructions to refer to, i assume it is the jack position, but none of the combinations seem to give h/phone+mic, any ideas

top port= headphone
centre= line in
bottom= mic

the microphone may well be on, but have you actually enabled it through control panel? this drove me bloody crazy a while back with an MS webcam/mike I'd bought and it turned out I hadnt selected it on one very obsucre area of the CP.

yeah, it wasnt the obvious place, check **everything** - sounds/speech recognition anything that might be connected to it. I also have a seperate section for the sound card on my CP, all these needed to be enabled for it to work. drove me bloody crazy.

Start -> Control Panel -> Sound

Make sure you have the right defaults selected.

realtek - sounds like you have a similar MB to mine. glad you sorted it. that was exactly what was winding me up - this MS webcam advertised itself as fully plug n'play. grr. ah well, you learn.
