Problems with Line in

by lesbooth20 / July 21, 2009 6:06 AM PDT

O/S Windows XP
Record deck connected to pre-amp - connected to line in on PC - when playing a record no sound from speakers.
Checked volume control - Recording - line in checked - volume 1/2
Playback - volume 1/2 on line in
I think I've updated drivers on sound card
Have connected lead from pre-amp to hi-fi and everything OK
- any suggestions ?

I believed that is as it should be. What are you trying to accomplish? You need to capture the audio before playing it back.

I know it is as it should be - but the PC is just not recognising any input from line in - just wondering if I have a conflict somewhere

You check the line volume control?

Double-click on the speaker icon and make sure the volume are properly set and be sure it's not muted either.

I've done that numerous times with no effect

A new sound card can be had fairly inexpensively.

Had tried installing latest driver from C-Media - no joy
Then decided to instal driver from original CD supplied with the PC - still no joy - but it offered me the option to roll back the driver and guess what - problem solved - thanks for your help all the same
