My G62-237CA Laptop has a problem working with AT2020 USB Condenser Microphone (Audio-Technica).
When I plug in the Mic to My G62,the microphone turns on (Blue LED indicator) but none of recording software such as recorder,Gom Recorder,Goldwave etc detects this device.
It is a very annoying problem of my G62 because I figured out that the mic works perfectly on my mom's laptop,which is a Lenovo and using Windows XP. Mine is HP G62-237 with Windows 7 OS.
1. The mic is perfectly powered by laptop USB Port.
2. The laptop detects the Mic as a sound recording device.
3. But it never lets me record with this mic,none of softwares detect the mic,The mic just does not show up in the option bar.
Therefore I cannot use this mic. What should I do?
External microphone does not work on dell laptop
When i plug my external microphone into the jack (not a usb connection) it does not work
the microphone is fine,
it works on other pcs
when i go into setup wizard,
the dell microphone built into the pc is the one that it attempts to reconfigure -- regardless that i click the external options
when i go to update drivers, it says the driver is the most current
