Windows 7: An Audio Recording Device Cannot Be Found

An Audio Recording Device Cannot Be Found


I'm quite puzzled with this problem. Can somebody guide me on how to solve this problem. I'm trying to fix a microphone to my PC (Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound >
Manage audio devices) and try to configure the "Recording tab".

In the tab, the message says "Realtek High Definition Audio Not Plugged In".

How do I resolve this problem.

It sounds like the microphone is not being detected. Does all the other sound functions work OK?

What is the PC? a laptop or desktop? (Please fill in the My System Specs). Without PC specs we can only guess or talk in generalities.
