I just see the default audio that came with the PC under sounds, video and game controllers and that's enabled.

Is there an alternative to audio cable? Usb tends to be less finicky , I am not familiar with the things you are linking

Just a thought, maybe it all needs to be connected before the system sees it.. 

I did find a USB to microphone adapter that has its own sound card.

Maybe this will help?  I have no idea.  I'm so used to plug-and-play, and things work.  No sure why PC would come without a mic jack.

My NOAA stream may be forced into retirement.

Thank you for your help and suggestions!

Go to and look up the manual. The jack in the back (Green) is for speakers. That has always been the standard color. Your mic/headphone jack is on the front. That splitter you bought won't work. Dell did have some Optiplex models that had the rear jack as an either/or....plug in speakers and the Dell would detect speakers...plug in the mic and the Dell would detect a mic. Same for the front jack. Originally the speaker (green) and Mic (Red) were in the rear.

Yours is a Speaker rear and Mic/Headphone front jacks. Go to the link below and click on Front, Back and Back Panel.

Thanks for the info.  So, I would need to plug in the weather radio's earphone jack to the front of the PC. 

Using a TRRS Aux cable that has mic capabilities. ( 

I'm using a TRS cable... for some reason it worked with my old PC. 

Also, would that USB to mic adapter that I provided in a previous post work?
