    When I try to record audio fed into the mic jack, T get what appears to be a squelch action, that is, low level sounds are blocked or attenuated. I suppose this is intentional for using a mic with a webcam or online phone service to reduce backgroung noise, but it ruins music. Can this effect be turned off? I use a Compaq CQ50-115.

Go to the control panel and open the sound properties box. Click on the recording and make sure the Microphone option is checked.

You dont require to install any microphone. Its like speakers. Also check the settings in Skype.

This is might occurs due to some dust formed on the hole of microphone.

Is there an internal microphone and if so where is it located trying to record myself i have a compaq presario 2200

Hi, the HP Compaq Presario 2200 PC has no built in or internal microphone. You will have to purchase an external one to record audio. The microphone jack, when viewing the laptop from the front, is located on the left side.

There are small round holes which are jack ports. From the front to the back, the microphone port to plug in a microphone is the second hole back. Here is a manual in case you need more help with your laptop: Click Here.

Hope this helps. If it does, please accept and rate the solution! Contact me with any more questions you may have. Thanks for using FixYa!

Does the 1030NR netbook have a built in micro-phone? If yes, How do I activate it for Skype use?

No, there is no built-in microphone on your machine, you have to buy one separately.
NB! It requires a combined headphone/microphone jack. The regular jacks work for the headphones, however the microphones will not work.
