Hi Jj11411, and welcome to TSG.
I don't think anyone here either would have any clue as to how to fix your problem without any clue as to what you have. Please tell us the manufacturers and full model numbers of the computer and microphones. If it is a custom or modified computer, please give a bill of material for all of the major components. Also, please tell us the exact operating system running on the computer and if it came pre-installed on the computer or was an upgrade.
Has the microphone input ever worked on that computer?
its a GMA3000BST, i dont haven external supply, but the mic worked on my mac (because of an adapter) and any other mic i use also has the same issue, all drivers are updates and nothing seems to be wrong, no errors. Both the front and back have similar issues. I think it's a hardware problem but i'm not sure.Thank you for the answers. I believe that "CyberPowerPC - Gamer Ultra Desktop" describes a few different models. Is there a label on the desktop with an exact model number that probably starts with "GUA"?
I believe the Neewer NW-700 is a condenser microphone that requires a 48V DC phantom power source. Are you using an external phantom power supply, that may not come in the microphone's standard retail package, or confirmed your particular motherboard as a sufficient built-in phantom supply? Have you tested with a simple microphone that does not require a phantom supply?
Have you checked the Windows Hardware Device Manager for any errors or warnings for the sound drivers?
It might not hurt to check if the front panel audio jacks are connected to the motherboard.
Thank you, but actually that wasnt the issue, i believe it was the actual hardware. When i bought a usb mic it worked fine, and when i used that mic without a powersource on a weaker computer it worked well. Thank you, thoughYou need 48 volts to power that mic.
I believe that some computer motherboards include some degree of phantom power for microphones that need it, but not all motherboards have it.Thank you, but actually that wasnt the issue, i believe it was the actual hardware. When i bought a usb mic it worked fine, and when i used that mic without a powersource on a weaker computer it worked well. Thank you, though
