Trying to use an external microphone but I get nothing
Okay, so I have a Compaq Presario CQ56 (HP) and I am a musical person, therefore wishing to record music. The built-in microphone isn't to my standards, so I have a microphone that I'm trying to use. It's an average karaoke mic plugged into an adapter I guess I could say.. It's a little piece where the mic plugs in on one end and the other end has a piece that I can plug into my computer, it looks like a headphone end. When I try and use it, there's nothing there. I know for a fact that the microphone works, and the adapter piece isn't damaged, so what could be the problem?
I've checked on google and have found no answers. Please help!
