DO NOT PLUG IT IN THERE!

Go through your soundcard

So...in doing this, is it possible to record your guitar straight onto ur computer? (sorry if this osunds No0bish, i really havent ever tried plugging my guitar into my PC before)
#6
yeah if you have a program like Audacity. i personally go through a Line 6 Toneport, which plugs into the USB socket and has recording and amp modelling software with it. check out the recording forum.
#7
so (god i sound so nooby) can you download Audacity? is it free? or do i have to obtain it from a guitar shop, thus paying for it?
#8
the sound card is built in and yes i did plugged it in the line in but nothing helpful right now
#9
yeah its free, just go to http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ and download it

^ download Audacity, set the input to "What You Hear", make sure the Line In volume is turned up, and you should hear the guitar through the speakers. i cant remember if you have to plug into an amp, then that into the pc tho

ok i managed to connect it to the line in and it works the sound is clean till now but the program didn't work with it ??!
#19
but, the program can't hear it? try different input settings, try turning up the gain on the left (eg +12dB). click record and play the guitar, see if it registers the sound.
