Using XP Home and have installed a web cam Ok, but the software does not recognise a microphone at all.I have tried alternative working mic but still no success.
Following help files and knowledge base etc. I should have facility of selecting recording source but all I have is:
Realtek 97 and Modem#1 Line Record with no option to select a mic.
Does this mean that my on board sound is duff( Cd's etc play Ok) or is it the input jack or am I missing something?
Any help would be appreciated.

Right click the sound icon down by the clock / left click open volume control / left click options /
left click properties / make sure the spot is in playback then put a tick in microphone left click OK and that should add the microphone box tp your properties, just make sure that the mute box is not ticked.
