I'm trying to connect my microphone (not a headset, an actual mic) to my 3.5 mm jack on my laptop but the jack is too long. The mic jack is 3.5 mm but it's a bit longer than normal 3.5 mm jacks (pic). You can't see it well in the pic, but the very tip of the mic jack (bottom) is 1-2 mm longer than that of my headphones (top). Both jacks fit fine when I plug them into my desktop, only in my laptops (Samsung Series 5 (slimline), also HP laptop) the mic doesn't go in all the way and windows doesn't detect anything. When I use too much pressure to put it in, it still doesn't work. Both laptops' ports are combo headset/mic ports and work fine with headsets. Any solutions? Do adapters exist? Are laptop mic ports just less 'deep'?
Ok, so I'm a little new to this site, I know a little about computers but I just cannot figure out this problem so here it is: My headphone jack on my laptop only works when its half plugged in, but even then the speakers on the computer still play and the sound through the headphones is quiet. The headphones work fine with my Ipod and other things. It hasn't been working properly for a good while now I just haven't known how to fix it I have an Compaq 610 laptop running Windows Vista Buisness. I think that it could be a driver problem but I'm not sure. Any ideas here? If you need more info just ask.
