    I have a VOSTRO 1000 that I am trying to install an external microphone on to record meetings. I have set the microphone up thru the control panel with the volume and gain at max. I can't get the mike to pick up anything. Even when I beat on it it picks up nothing. Does the laptop require a special microphone or am I missing something

    I'll try that when I get home. Looks like that may fix it. Thanks

    Those instructions don't seem to apply to my computer. The tab names are different and evidently my laptop only has one microphone since when I plug the external in I only see one and when unplugged there are none. On advise from someone else I loaded Audacity. Looks like it fixed the record problem as the mike seems to work. At least that's what the level bar seems to show. Now I can't get it to play back. If it's any help I have Vista Basic Home. Anybody have any new suggestions.
