    One guy wrote this:

    " The first couple of times I inserted
    the microphone into the jack there was a Vista pop-up giving 4 options the
    first of which was "Microphone". Worked perfectly the first time.
    During the second time, I clicked on the check box which said "Don't ask me
    this again." and then clicked on the microphone option thinking that Vista
    will remember that when this device is plugged I want the microphone to
    activate. But since then whenever I connect the microphone, i am unable to
    record anything. I have even checked that the device and the settings are

    Can anyone point me to anything that I might have forgotten or overlooked?
    Is there any way to bring back the pop-up option that used to work
    initially? "

    I have exactly the same problem. What do I do about it? I've looked around,
    but I can't find anything about how to change it back.

    thanks for any help,

  2. Open Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Manage Audio Devices.
    Right-click and enable "Show disabled devices".
    Right-click and enable "Show disconnected devices".
    If your device was disabled, you can now see it & enable it again.
