    Re: Can't hear sound via microphone in Windows Vista

    There are a few simple things to check first:
    • Make sure your computer has a sound card.
      You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.
      • Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager.* If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
      • Expand the Sound, video and game controllers category. If a sound card is listed, you have one installed. If no sound card is listed, You will need to install one. See Install or remove a sound card.

        You can use the line-in connection on your sound card to connect a portable music player, microphone, or other audio input device to your computer.
        However, the line-in connection to your sound card is muted by default. This means that if you plug an audio device into this port, it will not produce any sound on your computer until you enable sound for the line-in connection.
        Most sound cards have at least one line-out port to connect speakers and a line-in port to connect an audio input device


        To enable sound for the line-in connection

        • Open Audio Devices and Sound Themes by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Sound.
        • Click the Playback tab, click Speakers, and then click Properties.
        • Click the Levels tab, and then, under Line In, click the Mute button to enable sound for the line-in connection.

        The line-in connection is muted by default

    Hello friend...

    Normally, when we attach the new microphone they automatically attach you not need to update the sound driver..

    Firstly you can attach the old microphone the it working that means this microphone are damage now you go to service center and replace it...

    if old microphone not attach that means you need to reinstall the sound driver then working the microphone....

    All the Best!!
