    Mine just started doing this a few months after I bought it. Mic is live (both up by the Crystal Eye). It's so hot that when you fold the cover down on standby, it's still on and feeds back through the speakers! Sounds like a microwave beep or smoke detector. How do we turn off the built in mic????

    Im a different guest and I did NOT always have this problem. Strangely enough, mine worked fine with blu ray - until I got this horrible shreiking when I closed the lid without shutting down first! Since then I get bad feedback when watching movies.

Ok i had the same problem up until today and i found a post on a site that really helped me out i had this problem for about two months and was very close the sending it into acers repair center but all it was, was a setting in the audio manager ok here is what you need to do go to control panel, then go to hardware and sound, and then go to manage audio devices under sound then go to recording then click on microphone and go to properties, then go to levels and you should see two settings microphone volume and and microphone boost if your microphone boost is set to +20 which it prolly is just slide it down to zero and wow your problem is fixed. Im not really sure what program might change this setting but acer should really check into it and your system shouldnt let programs change things such as this cause this is a very important setting for having a wonderful entertainment experience. well i hope this helps and all the credit here goes to original poster at http://wynddancer.livejournal.com/22092.html

To reduce background noise from an audio mixer


when you say background noise I assume you mean the inherant noise that electronics produce. the the first thing to do is to make sure that all you input connections are shielded type, you don't need to spend money on gold plated connections, but do buy cables that are made with stranded wire and of decent size, bigger (fatter) is better when it comes to minimizing high frequency losses. Next, calibrate your inputs one at a time with a 1000hz signal that is 0db inn level. You can find this signal online through a search. you can also buy small plug in devices that produce this signal at 0 db (that is Zero Decibles) this is a common reference for "consumer" grade mixers, If you can't or don't want to spend any money on this you can use a signal from any tone generator, and some mixers have them built it. If you don't have any of the former, here is what you can do. turn all you mixer controls to 0 (zero) detent. in other words, flat, no treble, no bass, no midrange. on your inputs there should be input level knobs, these woule be set to thier lowest positionn if using a line input signal. if a microphone that level would be different, but wait on that for a bit. now have all you input knobs (or sliders) at minimum level. Now turn on your amplifer (if your using one) or what ever you monitor the output with. Headphones is a good choice as you can hear everything.
You should hear nothing. (nothing is supposed to in the inputs yet) if you hear noise take note of what it sounds like. turn the sound output level out (if headphones, turn up to a high level) and listen again. is the noise white (hiss) or hum (low freqency) if you have no noise, you have a good mixer and that is what it should be.
No plug in your first input, this is your choice but I would suggest you plug in microphone, now turn it up to the point where you can hear your own voice, you should hear just that, and maybe anything in the backgroud (furnace, tv, etc_) the quieter your environment, the better you can adjust this. Remember you will now need to turn up the input level. If you have meters you should be able to adjust the input to register in the green without turning red, a litlle yellow once in awhle is ok.
If this is quiet and clean you are ready to move on. turn that mic down to zero, but leave the input where you set it.
now plug in a line level source (your tape player,/cd player/ but don't use your computer as a source (yet). without anything playing on your machines you should hear very little noise in your headphones, if you hear a lot of noise you have bad cables.
Now play something through the tape/cd player, what ever and turn up the slider (not the input) this should give you a level,again in the green, with a little yellow, NO RED
once finished with this turn it back down and go to the next input. this time plug in your computer which most likely is coming from the green jack on the back (or front) of your PC/Mac or whatever. computers are very noisy machines, and just being close to one is sometimes enough to cause noise in a high gain system. anyway, plug in your computer and listen, you should hear some noise and I'd be surprized if this wasn't the source of your problem. make sure your volume level on the output of your pc is set to maximum, this will give you an advantage when recording. now turn up the slider on this input and listen for the noise level. good cables are important here and also the price of your computer may be reflected here as well since more expensive machines are better filtered and therefor produce less noise.
play a sound file (windows audio samples are noiseless and clearn) so use them if you can find thiem, look in your music folder for the sample files
You may hear some noise but your mixer is now set up at optimum and should give you nice sound if it is a quality mixer, good luck, Keith

What does warning 1 mean on microphone test?


On the microphone it means it's either picking up interference which can happen with cheaper microphones, or it can also mean that it's not picking up any noise.
When not using a microphone and this happens, then that would be protection mode, most systems would say protection and not warning. Warning just means there's interference or not being detected. Have you tried a different microphone?

I have a Toshiba A305 with built-in Harman Kardon speakers which aren't working properly. I do get some sound but it seems to be coming from the back of the computer; & isn't as good as it was. I...


All fixed, thanks to Maanita. Problem was that I had a USB microphone (gooseneck Logitech AK5370) plugged in for my Skype calls. Not knowing anything about audio, I didn't realize the mic was interfering with my laptop speakers -- assumed turning off the mic was sufficient. Also, Maanita re-installed the sound drivers, which I wouldn't have known how to do. It sure beat calling someone at $60 an hour + expenses to come out here. What a delight to find Fixya! Thanks again!

Alot of loud feedback through speakers, a loud buzzing noise


What sources make it happen or which do not? All buzzing = something in the amplifier end. is it from all speakers or just one?
One external source= RCA cables not grounded. Reconnect them tightly with a twisting motion to wipe off oxidation.

My internal microphone doesn't work


If you are refering to the internal microphone on your computer then try this. Open up your windows sound recorder from Start - Program - Accesories - Entertainment. Hit the record button and talk or yell something if you would like. You should see recorded sound waves in the middle of your sound recorder. If you do not see the recorded waves this might mean that your microphone is turned off. To turn it on just Double click on the little speaker icon on your taskbar at the bottom right of your screen. The volume control window will open. Click on options then properties. Next check the small round recording button. Now make sure the microphone box is checked then click ok. Now a window will open that will show your microphone recording level. Move the slider up about half way and make sure to check the small "Select" box near the bottom of the slider. Open up sound recorder and try to record again. If this does not work your internal microphone may not be working or your computer may not have come with a built in microphone.There are some very cheap external mics on the market that sound very good. If you are doing any serius recording you may want to invest in a USB microphone. The USB mic should come with it's own software and setup should be pretty simple. I hope I have been helpful.

No sound from microphone input or line input. says this device is working ok.latest drivers from driver detective. Aspire m3100 with win xp.All controls blanked out.


go to control panel / sounds and audio properties/( can you move the volume button?) if so then click the advanced button there and then on that window click options then properties then select the recording button and make sure that the microphone box is checked and anything else that you want to use for recording then click ok and select the microphone when the window comes up with the volume controls and check boxes for each device that you want to choose from to record( only one device can be selected

hope this is worth a fixya as all other ratings hurt our scoring

Shure wireless headset microphone


The most likely problem is a bad connection between the jack and the internal PC board. If you can solder, you may be able to resolve this yourself. Be careful NOT to alter any of the internal coils. Try resoldering the connector and update this if that fails to resolve the problem.
