Microphone is not working on Packard Bell Vista Laptop

Ever since I got the laptop the microphone has not worked, or only worked slightly. After reading up about it I found I needed to update the driver (Realtek High Definition Audio) but after having done so the microphone does not work at all. In the control panel it says it works yet it doesn't pick up any sound whatsoever. Help please? =]

    I assume so. When I go onto the advanced settings, there are two devices that show up and only one says it's working. I can see the 'set default' button but it is not clickable.

    Is it set as the default recording devide on the advanced settings?

You'll need to download the driver for your microphone.
After you've tried that then there's something wrong with it.

How do i connect loudspeakers to my packard bell EASYNOTE E6037 laptop. this is about 4 years old

I do not know what you mean, but the basics indicate you using the red, microphone plug, plug it into your computer. If this does not help, please clarify: Is there a place to plug it in? Are there incompatible plugs in play?

1. sound driver 2. microphone settings in volume control applet 3. tap test (tap the area around the microphone and see if eg Sound Recorder picks it up) 4. external microphone
