My microphone doesn't work on my Dell Inspiron 17 laptop. The microphone is a beyerdynamic (dynamic singing) microphone.
I've tried the following things: - Bought an external sound card (Terretec Aureon 7.1 USB). - Bought a cable from XLR to USB. - From analog to 3.5 mm straight in the laptop.
Nothing works! I don't think it's a driver problem either since the device (ext. sound-card) is recognized on my laptop.
