If you let us know which forum board would you like this on I’ll move it for you.
Windows, Mac, Linux?
Audacity 1.2.x / 1.3.x?

The answers depend on your set-up.

Any other information that may help to diagnose the problem? (for example, does the microphone/computer/sound card work? USB microphone?..)
