Default mic question

folks, I bought a new mic. It is one that just plugs into the sound card, no USB. My old one work fine, but if I unplug it and plug in my knew one, the mic won't work. The headphone part works, but not the mic. Do I need to install something or something? Thanks

Then as far as I know a mic is a mic. If it's in the same socket the it could well be a dud. One last thing is there a switch on the mic itself?

no switch on the mic. I have tried everything. Doesn't make sense the old one works and the new one doesn't. Maybe I will get another new mic

Sound like a good idea. This computer lark is so "disposable" nowadays that a large percentage of it don't work from new.

If ya can plug in the old Mic & it works then it's gotta be your new mic. There's no software that i know of to get them to work. It's Basically just Plug & Pray.
