The other night I got home to my girlfriend's sister using my computer, talking to people on iChat, listening to music in iTunes, etc. She left right after I got home, and I remember her saying something about the iMac getting 'froze up' so she couldn't do anything. She said it was ok though, or something, I wasn't really listening to her. So just about an hour ago I start SoundStudio to record a new bass line I wrote to see how it sounds, and everything I record sounds like tinfoil being stepped on. So I open every application I have that can record audio through my built in microphone, even hit up MacUpdate.com for a few more, and it's the same everywhere. Then I glance down at my desk and see a safety pin sitting on my desk that I didn't remember being there before, glance up at the little tiny hole in the bottom left hand corner of the iMac's LCD display that has the microphone in it, and I'm not sure if I should be afraid or scared. I'm guessing that since she uses PCs 95% of the time, she figured that the tiny hole was a restart button that had to be pushed with a safety pin. I'm also guessing that my built in microphone is probably trashed now... Anybody know of anyway to find out if that's it, or to fix it with out spending loads of money somewhere? Anybody ever had trouble like this with theirs?
