My Mic in Dell Precision m90 stopped working after i downloaded Skype? Any suggestions on how to get it working again?


Have you checked the sound settings in Skype? Usually skype lets you to set your sound equipment individually rather than using the windows general settings.

Especially if you have onboard mic. Try the call settings sound options in skype and check to see if it is working.

I want to use Skype, but it always says that I need a USB headset. But I believe that my laptop has a built in mic.


Have you checked your device manager settings? You may need to 'enable' the built in mic if it has one. Skype has a test mic that works to help you hear yourself after this.

I am not able to turn the inbuilt microphone on in Acer aspire 4736Z while on a videocall with my friend on skype or yahoo msgnr. i can hear her but she cant hear me at all. also theres a constant...


It will be good to test the microphone in the sound recorder to see if the driversa re supporting , if not reinstall the drivers or choose to set to a earlier restore point.
If the mic is working good it must be seen if the Skype and messenger has some conflicts therby disabling the mic.
So take chance and uninstall the messenger to try if the fault clears.If not uninstall the skype and check with the messenger.
If the mic is not working at all it can be a hardware issue , a fault of the mic.

Hi bob_durek assuming you have the same problem with MSN messenger or any other software, please go to start -control panel- Sound. Then click on the voice tab and Audio tab and see under Voice Recording you see a device, meaning your mic. If you do see a device, click on Volume and make sure the "Select" is checked. Restart Skype and run the audio wizard to make sure everything is working. Dont forget to rate if my answer helped you. Thank you :D

Please help me


You need to check if the mic/s is working?
Are you certain the Logitech webcam has a built-in mic?
To check if the mic works go to Start - All programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and test record your voice and play back to check, also try it with the laptop's built-in mic (if it has one) and the Logitech mic.
If both mics work then you have a choice of which one you can use in Skype, most likely the best one would be the Logitech one.

You need to configure your audio settings in Skype.
When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Select Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.

If you still have problems get back to me with all details and error messages.

My microphone on my acer aspire one isnt working


This solution works for the Windows XP version. Go to msconfig.exe, then the Startup tab. UNCHECK rthdcpl and restart. Realtek driver doesn't load, but who cares...the microphone works now.
