    I have a Acer Inspire One laptop/net book and I've bought a Logitech Desktop Microphone 600. It's not registering and it's not showing up on anything! I've tried so many solutions but all have failed. PLEASE HELP~

    I thank you for the help ahead of time.

    Hi fuzzybluelights, and welcome to TSG.

    It would be rather difficult to suggest any new possible solutions if you don't tell us some of the things you have all ready tried. Not that many members here have clairvoyant powers.

    Some possible solutions ...

    Have you checked the Windows volume/mixer control panel to make sure the mic input is not muted?

    Some computers may have hardware that allows the mic input to also work as a line level input. In that case, it needs to be specifically set to be a mic input.

    Have you checked the microphone on a another computer to make sure you did not buy a bad one?

    How do I get to the volume/control panel? I think I may have tried that already but I just want to make sure I didn't do it wrong or something.

    Do you have a speaker icon on the right hand side of the task bar? Try clicking on it and you may see a volume control setting with an option to view the mixer.
