Microphone wont function

  1. My microphone seems to be working (i can no longer hear voice magnified)
    but when I try to use it in Windows Sound Recroder it says 'Another application is
    recording audio. Stop recording with this other application and then try to record
    with sound recorder' or when in MSN Messenger I try to use it there is another error
    message 'Your computer does not have a sound card, or a sound card is not selected.'
    Or even when I try to play Half-Life Counterstrike and use it in the game there's
    a message before I connect to a server: "Couldn't initialize voice input, blah blah"
    could anyone please help me, tell me what is wrong with my microphone!

    I would first try to uninstall and reinstall the sound drivers via device manager.
    You also might need to go into the programs options [for example MSN messenger] and select the sound card.
