so my headset microphone produces nothing but static. (that's a different problem altogether which, if you guys could fix that too, that'd be great.)
so i got myself a USB mic to use instead, this has suddenly stopped working altogether. the thing turns on. the computer sees that it's a microphone, but it picks up no sound at all. i looked for drivers for this microphone and the internet has given me no results.
on the bottom of it, the mic says "blackweb" and there is a code. BWA19HO011 . i'm assuming that's the serial number. not sure what other info i can provide.

Right click your volume icon in the taskbar by the clock. And choose Troubleshoot sound problems.
You also can right click and choose Open Sound Settings. Under Input, take the drop down arrow for Input device and choose your USB Mic.

I'm sorry to say that your Blackweb USB Mic is probably not very good. I would be suspicious of any computer hardware that does not have a Web site for support, returns and drivers.

Walmart sells this mic and has many bad customer revues including failure like yours. If it's still under warranty or you bought extended service, take it back.

Check for anything near your computer that might be causing electronic interference. Also, are you plugging it tnto correct receptacle (usually color coded? Please update your User CP on TSF so we know what OS we're dealing with.

It could be need to adjust the setting.
