    Hey guys, I have a microphone that I cant seem to get to work. I have two computers and the microphone works fine on one of them, which is Windows XP. My other computer which is Windows 7 however does not even recognize the microphone. I'm not sure why but if I click on recording devices it has a microphone icon but says it isnt plugged in. When I go to properties it says it should be plugged into a front jack. So naturally I went to plug the microphone I do have into a jack in the front, only problem is there aren't any in the front, only in the back. I also have the option to plug my microphone into my speakers, there is a jack for it in the controls for my speakers, but again nothing comes up if I use this option. I think all of my drivers are up to date but I'm not positive. If anyone has a solution I would greatly appreciate it. -Thanks tray616
