Record singing and guitar

by Frederickme / October 14, 2011 9:57 AM PDT

I would like a simple way to record myself singing and playing guitar. I used to do it years ago with a tape recorder that I could hook to my stereo.
I do not want to mix music- just something to practice with. I tried the microsoft recorder but the sound was bad- a lot of hissing. Is there a devise I can buy for less than $100. that would do this?

How are you connected now?

What are you using as a Mic to record now using Microsoft recorder? Most often on a PC, you need to install a graphics card that has an Audio-Input connection, to which you can connect a microphone, and you need software to record the audio. Both of my Mac's already have this and I have a Mic that I simply plug in. My iMac also has a built-in Mic on the screen that works surprising well, and it comes complete with software already installed. When I need to record a voice-over to a home video I'm editing, I simply talk and the built-in Mic records everything just fine, but an external Mic actually works better.

I gave it a try and it worked.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
