You will need
- - headphones or speakers for audio output.
First, turn on computer, wait for the download and prepare a working microphone. If it works from the connectors at the rear of the system unit, then you can try to connect it on front panel. Usually there is a connector pink (with the icon of the microphone). For testing the fit program supplied with the sound card drivers (for example, Manager HD Realtek) or sound Recorder that you can easily find, follow the path start - > All programs - > Accessories - > Entertainment".
If the microphone is not included (this can signal a fixed scale), we first check the program of the microphone. Look in the system tray the loudspeaker icon and double-click on it. In the window that appears the main settings of a sound select "Properties" –> "Mixer" –> the input device (input). For example, it may be Realtek HD Audio Input. Select settings "Mic Volume". Closing the window, you will see the volume control recording with the microphone. The icon of the microphone should be active and installed at least half of the scale. An alternative path for these settings: "control Panel" -> "Sounds and audio devices - > Audio - > sound Recording - > Volume".
If recording continues, check the auto-detection mode sockets front panel. This window Manager is the program responsible for your audio device. Reinstall the top check mark as shown in photo and then check the recording microphone. Often it is because the active auto-detection may conflict audio devices.
If you have not achieved success, then you should restart the computer and enter the BIOS. There click "Advanced Settings". Under "Chipset Configuration" may be setting the "Front Panel Control". Forcibly set its value as "Enabled" (instead of "Auto"). After restarting again try to activate the microphone with the front panel.
Another danger can wait for you if when you build the computer to the motherboard was not connected audioslav the front panel. You can check it out, if you open the side cover of the system unit and inspect the connections. If you have the manual to the motherboard, where the connectors, and you have pinpointed where you want to paste audiosnap can do it yourself. Note - if the computer is new, and his body is sealed, you should seek assistance from the sellers not to lose the warranty.
For connection, only use trusted microphone.
