View Full Version : No-speak microphone

I'm about to start a new venture where I need to play messages on my Bitware mail box. However, I can't get the mike to work to record my personal messages. The troubleshooting file tells me I need to close jumpers 1-2 and 3-4 on the motherboard, but there are no jumpers pertaining to the mike connection. Bitware mentions the fact that some manufacturers anticipate the use of a 'Powered microphone' I presume that is a mike that has it's own power supply? I'd prefer not to have to use one of them, as the tangle of computer power cords on the floor, already resembles a dropped plate of Spaghetti bolognaise.
This version of bitware also doesn't support the use of the handset to record messages whereas on my old computer with a previous version of Bitware I could do all of the above! (and still can, so it's not the mike itself)
Does the problem lie with Bitware, my soundcard or my modem?
