I can't get my mic to work! >.<


Oct 4, 2013
I have a mic, I think it's an Altec Lansing, and all I get is static. It's plugged into the Front Mic. Jack, and I've tried messing around in the Recording Audio settings, but to no avail. No matter what I change, it does nothing new. All it does is it produces static if it produces anything at all. It doesn't pick up my blowing on it, and it doesn't pick up me talking, nor my dog barking as loud as she can right into the mic. It simply picks up nothing. If I turn the microphone boost up to max, it produces a lot of really loud static, but still not my voice. If I turn it down, it doesn't make any noise. I really need help!!!
