    on the motherboard or my CPU
    The CPU/Central Processing Unit is on the motherboard. Most computer cases of the last several years have a Microphone jack on the front panel beside the Speaker/Headphone jack [pink and light green] in addition to the jacks on the back of the computer which are the ones physically attached to the motherboard. Have you tried the microphone on a different computer or computers? Most times Windows will recognize it, try Sound Recorder.

    hey guys thanks for the responses.

    have tried the different jacks for mic on the whole cpu and windows does not seem to reconize it when connected like it would when I connect something with usb.
    it just doesn't detect a thing

    also tried it with the speech recognition area in the control panel and nothing

    its just not detected

    what are your thoughts?

    That pretty much says your mic is bad, have you tried it on a different computer or a different mic on your computer?

    Any chance of getting a cheap mic that works through your usb.
    Have you also run trouble shooter and see what that comes up with
    Have you also run SFC /Scannow
    SFC Command - Run in Windows 10

    Yes. Good idea.
    It will confirm at least if the mic is good or defective.
    Make sure if it is NOT a hardware issue first.
