my microphone/headset doesn't work when i plug it into the jack on the front of my machine. windows recognizes it and says it's working fine, but it doesn't hear me when i speak. i do hear sound through it. the machine is an emachine model t5246, and there are also speaker/mic jacks in the back of the machine. i want to be able to use the desktop speakers plugged into the back jack, and also use the headphone plugged into the front, when i want to talk on skype, or search via dictation on google. also, i have dragon naturally speaking 11.5 installed, and get an error message each time the computer starts up, about the sound card. I'd like someone to login remotely and resolve the issue while i'm available to speak into the mic for testing.
