Having problems recording audio

Hi, I'm having a problem with recording audio on my lenovo. It has an audio combo jack and the instructions tells me that at the default setting it does not support conventional microphones. It does not, however, tell me how to change the default settings properly. Any help with this problem will be greatly appreciated!

Re: Having problems recording audio

hi Sebin,


Welcome to the Forums.


Your issue might be similar to these theads:

Audio combo jack vs headphone/earphone with mic and speaker connector

Z500: suitable external microphone type


From the above links, you will need to get a headset with an inline mic or an adapter/splitter if you have a conventional headset/mic. From there, you can configure the default device for sound/recording under Control Panel > Sound.
