No sound from in-built microphone and sound through headphones

Running Vista Home on my Toshiba Satellite M300. Two problems: (a) my in-built microphone is no longer recording any sound and (b) no sound is coming through my headphones when I plug the jack in. I have tried playing around with the Sound settings on the control panel but no luck. The only sound coming through is my speakers.

Can't get the headphone sound working from the laptop


The Laptop has 3 Ports on the side- Pink,Green,Black
Pink Port is LineIn for an external device player jack



Green Port is LineIn for the Microphone jack
Black Port is LineOut for Headset or External Speakers jack



Plug the Green jack on Headphone - into the Black Port on the laptop.
b) Go to Control Panel and open - RealTek HD Audio manager
On the top of Page are 3 Icons -



One Icon is labelled Speakers One is for Digital optics, one is for Mic,
The Speakers Icon is misleading as it is also for Headphones (LineOut)



Select Speaker Icon and make it Default. Also tick Full Range - Front LR
Ignore the 4 vertical Analog Icons on the right side.



You should now have Headphone sound if your volume is not Muted.



click start control panel on the left select hardware and sound then select manage audio devices then recording you should see a microphone right click select enable windows 7



click start control panel on the left select hardware and sound then select manage audio devices then recording you should see a microphone right click select configure speech recognition then

click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it or select audio from the microphone drop down list


make sure you have the right one selected and in the volume box make sure the microphone box has a tick in it or

select the voice tab


make sure that you have the right media selected also

select volume make sure the box for microphone has a tick in it


or you might have to depending on your operating system
Click start Control Pannel
click on Hardware and Sound



click on Sound
then you devices should come up ; speakers, Digital Audio, and headphones



plug your headphones in
then select headphones



at the bottom it will say set as default

This camera is without a microphone or I don't


If you have a laptop you can use the built-in mic and speakers
If its a desk top you will have to buy speakers and a mic.
Maybe better to have a headset ( headphones and mic ) to prevent 'feedback' / echo and some privacy

I've bought a logitech quickcam communicate STX. When I installed it first it worked fine. Someone unpluged it from the usb port and it wouldn't work. I re-installed the drivers and it was fine again but...


The microphone may not work because of a hardware or configuration problem. To determine if it's a hardware problem, test the microphone in Sound Recorder.

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
The microphone may also be defective. To test this, try the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.

You will be required to run an audio setup wizard through the messenger application in order for MSN or Windows Live Messenger to recognize sound using a microphone and produce sound through speakers, headphones, or headsets.
The information in this article will describe the correct procedure to setup audio and video within the MSN or Windows Live Messenger application to achieve proper audio functionality.
trnsp.gif Answer The information in this article applies to the following 3rd party software
MSN Messenger 6.x
MSN Messenger 7.x
Window Live Messenger 8.5


The information in this article applies the following platforms
Windows 98
Windows ME
Windows 2000
Windows XP
Windows Vista
Note: The information in this article is not product specific. For details regarding camera driver and operating system support please see article 3428

Step 1: Getting Started
Before we begin setting up the sound in MSN or Windows Live Messenger, ensure the following is complete:
  • Connect your camera and verify that it is working properly
  • If using headphones, verify that your device is connected and functioning
  • If using speakers, verify that they are functioning properly
  • If using a headset, verify that both the headphone and microphone are connected and working properly.


Step 2: Executing the audio and video setup procedure within the messenger application
This procedure will allow you to assign an audio input and audio output device, as well as assigning the video device of your choice to work with the messenger application. The following example uses Windows Live Messenger 8.5 however, the same procedure can be used for earlier versions of MSN Messenger 6.x and above. MSN Messenger users please skip directly to step 4 below.
Note to Windows Live Messenger users: There are multiple ways to execute the following steps depending on being signed in vs signed out of the messenger application, and which version of Windows Live Messenger is being used. To avoid confusion, please execute the following steps while signed out. We also recommend updating to the latest version of Windows Live Messenger.
1. Sign out of your account.
2. Launch the messenger application (make sure you are not signed in to your account).
3. Locate and click the "Help" drop down button towards the top right corner and select "Show the menu bar"
16480.gif 4. Now click the "Tools" option in the menu bar and select the “Audio and Video Setup” option.

5. Click “Next to begin the setup process.

6. In the “Speaker Setup” window, select the output device you would like to use with the messenger application. This step is specific to speakers or headphones. If your speakers or headphones are USB devices and connected to your computer, select the device by using the drop down menu provided. If your speakers or headphones are connected to your soundcard, the device listed will be the make or model of your soundcard device.
You can also set the desired volume level and click “Play Sound” for an audio sample. Click "Next" once you are comfortable with the your selected options.

7. In the “Microphone Setup” window, select your desired input device from the drop down menu provided.
3172_msnad04.jpg This selection will be specific to a microphone connected to your computer. If your Logitech video camera has a built-in microphone, this option will be presented as “Logitech Mic” with your camera model name in parentheses as shown above.
If you have an external USB microphone or headset device connected to your computer that hosts a microphone, select the devices name or model number in the drop down menu. If your external microphone or headset is connected to your soundcard, the device listed will be the make or model of your soundcard device. Once your device is selected, adjust the microphone volume level to your preference and click next.
Note: The microphone volume level may need to be tested in order to find a comfortable volume level. As a starting point, try setting the level midway and adjust when necessary by re-executing this procedure.

8. In the “Webcam Setup” window, select the video device you would like to use with messenger application. Once selected, you should see a display sample in the window provided. You can also click the “Options” button to make camera specific adjustments. Once completed, click the “Finish” button to apply your changes.
3172_msnad05.jpg

Once you have completed this process, the messenger application should now be configured to the correct audio input (microphone), audio output (speakers or headphones), and video device (webcam) to use when engaging in an audio and or video conversation.
