I hooked up a Logitech web cam on my win xp pro desktop via the usb. I'm using win live and cannot get any mic sound whether it's through the cam or a separate mic. Have been through the nine yards of checking sound recording, reloading the software for live and win sound and still nothing. I've reloaded my usb drivers and still nothing. Any more suggestions?

Try opening up the Volume control panel to make sure that the microphone is not muted. You might also want to check to see if the microphone appears in the Sound control panel, under the "Audio" tab (look in the middle section entitled "sound recording.")

If this does not work, and if you have a regular input jack for headphones/audio, you could try an older microphone that has an older audio plug, rather than a USB plug.

Hope this helps.

That might be the case. Any chance you have a friend who has a working sound card? If so, put his or hers in your machine, and see if that solves the problem. If so, you need a new sound card. If not, you might have another problem altogether.
