I have HP pavillion G6 1201tx laptop. There is two separate 3.5mm jack for audio and mic. So i connected external mic in 3.5mm mic jack. In recording devices i can see new device added with a name External Mic and it is enabled. But there is no bars moving because it is not detacting any sound. There is one more device which is my default mic, this is working fine. I also set the External mic as default but still no sound. The strange thing is when i use usb sound card and use this mic still the sound is not captured. When in this sound card i plug aux cable connected to my phone then it is showing the sound detected. There is no issue with the mic i am using. Even i tried with different mic but no success.
Can someone explain me why this is happening?
How can i use external mic with PC?
My laptap has IDT sound driver and it is up to date.
