Hi Steve, 
Still the same problem. Quite interesting, when I go to unmute the microphone, 
the linein box becomes muted, but it refuses to stay like that, even when I 
click OK by properties. Is there some program or something that can reset my 
sound card or something?

  Hi Ari,


  Go into Volume Control, Properties, select your mixer device, then select 
adjust options for recording rather than Playback, which is the default, then 
press enter.  Now check if mute is checked.  If it is, uncheck it.


  All the best

  Hi guys, 

  I'm hoping someone can help me here, I don't know what setting to change. 
I've been using a microphone ok, so it's not anything to do with the hardware 
itself. Someone has unfortunately changed one of the settings on this computer, 
so that, when I speak into the microphone to test it, as the recording I get 
JAWS speaking back to me, and the microphone's not working. The checkbox in 
volume control by mute microphone is not checked, but it seems to me that there 
is some or other setting that's not right, even when I try and use the echo 
test, instead of my speech into the Microphone, I just hear this recording of 
JAWS repeating what it has said. The Microphone is plugged into the correct 
jack, it's actually a sort of headset thing.
