Check the microphone, these bastards have sometimes a on/off switch.
Last year, I dreamt I was pissing at a restroom, but I missed the urinal and my penis exploded.

Done that, and it's definitely enabled. It just doesn't pick up any sound.

Need your help. I recently installed Windows 7 on my computer, and everything works except my microphone. Any of you had this problem? I was thinking maybe the drivers werent properly updated or something, but seeing as I know s**t about computers, I'll need your help on that as well.

HEELP!
I know for my vista drivers everytime I plug in my mic a window pops up and I have to select the mic option in a little program. It's annoying as all get out, but everything in vista is like that.

Look for your microphone's brand name and model number, and then go to company's site and look for drivers (usually in "downloads" section or something).
Download a driver for your model (make sure it's compatible with windows 7 though. Usually there are separate drivers for different systems) and install it like any other program.

Make sure the mic works: test it on another computer or use a linux live cd to test it.
Try a different mic port if you have one.
Play with sound settings.
Reinstall drivers.

It's a build-in microphone, if that requires a diffferent approach.  Got it working somewhat, but I had to turn the boosters up all the way, and it still gives a weird noice and a general feeling that it doesn't function as it should.

Another question then.. Ever since I formatted my computer, I no longer have the program I used to operate things such as my webcam. It will turn on automatically with skype and such, but I can't adjust the brightness and stuff whenever I'm using it without a program that allows me to do it directly(such as skype). Are there any universal programs out there that'll let you do this?

I am looking for something that I would plug in a wall outlet and that it would give me a specific voltage that I could change with simply turning a nob, but like something that has wires that I could attach to a little electric motor for example and then simply detach the wire and change to an LED or an other motor perhaps, but yeah how the hell would that be named?

Another question

Is it possible to charge and use a Garmin Nuvi 255 to a pc? because when I connect it it shows up an image that shows the GPS is connected to the pc but is there a way to work with it while connected to the pc because I cant turn it on when its unpluged from the cars "lighter" even after letting it uo for like 45 min +

Uh, I'm not sure if I understood you right, but I think what you need is simply a "power adapter".
In stores there should be models that have switches that change polarity and voltage, as well as different types of plugs.

Well I just want like a kind of a charger but with like a regulator that I could change the power from 0.5V to 20V (example) with some alligator clips

Im lookng for books about dragons. From adventures to escapades. Something interesting with a good storyline, preferably a series but singles are ok too. The kind of book I am really looking for is one that follows exploits of one dragon, hopefully across a few books. I have read the Inheritence books and am hooked on those( Eragon). Stuff like that too. Also if you could tell me where i can buy them from but names are ok. Thanks.

If you don't buy the guitar(and provide pictures of the purchase along with the receipt), I'll ban you from the forums.

You'll have my full support. :D
Why not XBox - I'll quote myself from a different thread:

Microsoft are money wh***s, they charge for everything you normally wouldn't have to pay on PC (even games themselves ;D). Plus many games are simply not meant to be played with gamepads. I prefer good ol' mouse & WASD.
So stick with PC. PC is for reel proz.
Besides, playing guitar will prove to be more useful in life than molesting a gamepad.

This is what guitar players actually believe. I know plenty of guitar players, only one has a chance in it ever being anything but a hobby and he has had to sacrifice in every facet of his life for that. Games and instruments are equal hobbies. Also durr hurr micro$oft isn't a useful argument. Some people like playing with controllers, other don't. That is the only real argument for not buying a console besides funds.
