Yes, you need to enter the default recording device (microphone) in Control Panels sound applet. It's that easy!

If you have any other questions, dont hesitate to ask!

gonna need some more info in your syste specs, specifically your sound card manufacturor,

i suspect the problem is with your sound card drivers, if you can fill out the specs we can provide a link to the right drivers

My CPU appears to have realtek HD audio driver.

I right kliked into this progam that is by the clock on the task tray. I kliked into sound manager and kliked on the "microphone" tab and recording volume was at 100% and playback volume was at 25% while the playback was muted!! These settings seem to be default since i have not touched these

I disagree with the previous poster... you should not go to Realteks website unless you cannot find the correct drivers at eMachines website. Here is eMachines support drivers download site...

eMachines Support: Drivers and Downloads

Also it appears that both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of this driver are the same file!

Hope this works for you!
