    I've been fighting the same problem on a P-7811FX

    Tech chat says to reload the operating system. That will of course delete everything on your hard drive. I've been uninstalling and reinstalling the Conexant driver. Sometimes a Microsoft driver will take it's place for no reason that I can tell. The internal mic will work for awhile after I fight with the drivers and then it will stop the 3rd time I reboot. Tech support is no help and we are on our own.

You may need to raise the level by going back into Control Panel -> Sound. From there, click the Recording tab -> right-click Microphone and select Properties. Finally, click the Levels tab and raise the level.

I had to do this on mine, too.

Hope this helps.

I suggest you go into control panel and device manager and see if your internal mic is listed there. If it is right click on it and see if it is selected as your default mic. I believe it may be un-selected. If that doesn't work I would just use the external mic with Skype as the internal mics with most laptops aren't that good anyway.

make sure you dont have the mic muted on the sound controls through control panel. Also both of these programs have preferences and you might need to check that your internal mic is selected as the input device.

How to turn-on/function mic in my acer aspire one pc notebook?


To test the microphone, click "start" button, then "Control Panel", then "Sounds and Audio Devices". On the popup window that opens, click on the "Voice" tab, then click on the button that says "Test Hardware". After several seconds this will bring up a test program that will show a noise level meter when you're speaking into the microphone. (The default device listed under voice recording should be "Realtek HD Audio Input".)

Factory installed microphone isn't working anymoe


open up your volume toolbar, advanced and make sure that your mic is not muted, turned down or that your mic +20 boost is turned off. You can always uninstall sound drivers and have vista find them again on boot up, but Vista is such a new platform that your mic hardware may not be compatible. Good luck, I have never had good results with the windows mic.
