how to make my mic work on mic port
 
If your microphone isn't working, try the following...

1. Go to "Control Panel".
2. Click on "Sound".
3. Click the "Recording" tab.
4. Click on the device you are trying to fix.
5. Now click the "Configure" button and then click "Set up Microphone".
6. Once that is complete, click the "Properties" button.
7. When you are done with your changes, in "Properties", click "Apply" and then "OK".
8. Then click "OK", again, on the main "Sound window".


Now if this doesn't help, there could either be a problem with the mic itself, or with the port on the computer. You may wish to try using a 3.5mm (or dual 3.5mm) to USB adapter and see if that resolves your issue.
