What could be the cause of a Windows Microphone not recording?

I need to record on my computer and am having issues.

Be sure that you meet all of the system requirements listed on the box that the microphone came in. Also make sure that all of the wires are plugged in correctly (microphone power and connection to PC). Otherwise try calling Windows support.

It's possible that the microphone could be plugged in to the speaker port or headphone port. If it is plugged in to the microphone port, check to make sure that the mute button is not accidentally selected. Also, make sure that the volume is not accidentally set too low for your recording to be heard.

It is possible that the cable between the microphone and the computer is faulty. Check both ends of the cable for any visible damage.

The microphone may not be configured correctly to do any recording on the Sound property page in the Control Panel.
