Re: Sound Recording problem - ie. Mic sound is not...
click the sound icon in your task bar then click options then select recording settings. check the settings which will require you to show the settings of microphone. Recording settings should be tested through a sound manager. 2nd find the run command in your in the start up menu then type dxdiag to check your system information wether sound card was istalled. IF IT IS NSTALLED then check it thru sound detection input and out put aswell as the mic if its working.

Double click on the little speaker icon on the Desktop toolbar 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 he 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 or whatever application you are using and try to record. If this does not work I would get an external microphone plug it into your laptop and try recording again. If the external mic works then I would think that you internal microphone is not working. 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.
You say you can hear the otherside when online! Is it your microphone which isn't working rather than your speaker?
Go into your control panel- then sounds and audio devices-and click "voice" make sure that the mic is enabled and you can test the hardware here also. you could also use an external headphone and mic combo, your laptop should have ports for you to insert the jack plugs
First you have to isolate the problem, you need to check if it's a problem with your hardware of your computer or if it's a problem withn your software.
First try using Microsoft Sound Recorder (usually it's located at Start -> Accessories -> Multimedia -> sound recorder.
Try recording anything using that, If you can do it; then probably it will a problem with your software MSN, try re-isntalling it.
If you cannot record anything, of if you get a message that there's no recording device; then it's something related with the microphone or the driver for the mic....In case you need the driver, please let us know the model number of your laptop (usually it's a the bottom ....
My laptop model is compaq presario c754tu, I have installed Windows Vista Business, and the audio is working fine, but the internal mic and external microphone both work together........i want to mute the internal mic..... how i can do it ? please reply me on my email id i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are using xp, try going to the control panel, sound and audio devices, click on audio tab.
to check the mic settings, click on the volume tab under the sound recording sections. Make sure that the mic is selected and the volume turned up. It may be working only to record, not to hearback without recording...so you may have to actually be recording or talking to someone to know if its workings.
To check the sound, check to see if your audio device is selected under "sound playback" section...and make sure that all channels are unmuted and turned up. you may also have to check the volume control on the laptop (actual buttons on the pc) if there are any, and make sure that the volume is up and unmuted there also.
Hope this helps.
