hello,

I just found this forum and hope someone can help. I need to hook up a pair of speakers to my PC and also a microphone so that I can make voice recordings. I tried just plugging them both into my PC but nothing I tried worked----could not get any sound.

I know the speakers work because I can hear through them when I play a CD in my CD-ROM. The microphone also works when used with my old stereo/record player system to make cassette tapes.

Can anyone help me get them working? I must warn you that I am a COMPLETE novice when it comes to anything like this. I know absolutely NOTHING so any replies will have to be very, very simply explained to me.

Thank you very much,
TotalNewbie

Welcome to TSF. :wave:

You probably have to install the sound driver.
What brand/model is the computer?

If you don't know:
Download and run Everest.
That program will produce a list of what's inside your computer.
In Everest press the "Report" menu - then "Quick report - All pages > Plain text.
Save the report. Please post back, with that report as an attachment.

How to post an attachment.

Thank you for replying.

My computer says "Celeron", "Intel Inside". It has Windows 98 on it. Is this helpful in determining what I should do?

I am now getting the common "Windows sounds" from my speakers since i opened the loudspeaker icon on the toolbar and moved all the sliders to the very top.
