    Erm ok let's try!



    You did not tell me what i asked you though! I am assuming again that it is XP / VISTA



    SOLUTION 1: You might have just muted it matey!



    1. Assuming that it is really muted it might well be the following. Go to control panel find hardware and sound (vista) or sound under (xp).



    2. Go to recording controls and check if the MIC is SELECTED (with a tick underneath). If the MIC is selected also check that the volume is not MUTED or to LOW. From the recording controls/devices area in the SAME panel you just entered a while ago check if the levels are ok for sound and that it is not muted.



    Solution 2: Microphone might be BROKEN

    sometimes these laptops get the microphone wires twisted so much (as they would be in the lid) that these wires break. Don't panic in that case go out to a computer shop get hold of a cheap mic or headset. Not more than 5 US$ and purchase it. Then plug it in your PINK socket which you got on the laptop. Refer to the manual to check which is the MIC connection just to crosscheck to make sure.



    I hope that this was of help

My microphone is not working. What do I do? Trying to use Skype, but microphone want work


Hi ldlw65,

Please follow the below steps to set up your microphone properly :-

  1. Firstly check if your microphone's cable is in proper order, if it has been damaged, then it's that physical fault which stops microphone from working.
  2. Now if the wire or cable of microphone is OK, check if you have connected your microphone in the correct slot , in your motherboard , usually there is a sign of mic besides the microphone slot.
  3. Then check for the control panel's sound and audio devices option , by going in your control panel, if you open it and go in the audio tab you should see your recording device as enabled.
    If it's disabled then you need to install your audio driver's again.
  4. Now , if everything is ok till here , all you need to do is do a microphone check by going to sound recorder (start >programs>accessories >entertainment>sound recorder )in windows xp , in case you are using windows xp or any relevant software in the other operating system which records audio.
  5. Once you have the application like sound recorder try speaking on mic while you activate the record option , if you see that your sound is being recorded, then your mic is functioning properly, if it's not then you need to check if your mic is the current recording device.
  6. To check if your mic is the current recording device , all you need to do it double click on the volume icon on your task bar and you will have volume control box open , then you need to go to the options menu and choose properties.sajjad4help_2.gif
  7. After you choose properties you will have a radio button for recording , select it and you will find devices for recording , then make sure microphone is selected and click ok.sajjad4help_6.gif
  8. After you select ok , then you need to select microphone from the recording options to activate recording via your microphone.sajjad4help_7.gif
Now you should be able to use your microphone properly without any problems.
Your feedback would be appreciated.
Hope this helps ..)

When trying to speak to contacts on skype a message saying 'internal microphone not working' keeps appearing. Any suggestions of what to do?


Check your mic if properly plugged. Check hardware devices if mic is properly installed by right clicking my computer then properties. On properties window, go to harware tab and choose device manager. Check mic if installed. If not install it, if installed check properties if there is a problem. If there is reinstall it if not check volume properties if mic volume is not muted.

Test your microphone if it properly working. Go to Sounds and Audio Devices properties and then go to Voice Tab and then Test Hardware. If the computer does'nt hear anything then your mic is faulty.

Mic not working


The cause of a Web Cam's microphone to stop working can be either a hardware issue or a result from incorrect configurations.
Recommendations:
Determine whether it is a hardware problem by testing 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."
We also recommend using 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.
Additional Information:
Multimedia keyboards that have the ability to control your computer volume may have software that can interfere with your webcamera's sound. If you have a Multimedia keyboard with volume control, the keyboard's software may need to be uninstalled in order for the camera's microphone to work properly in Windows.

Skype


Audio Setup for Windows XP and Vista

1. Audio settings, in Windows and Skype

XP: Windows Control Panel / Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices / Sounds & Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Adjust Audio Properties"

Volume / Device Volume: Make sure “Mute” is NOT checked in this window.
Volume / Device Volume / Advanced: If there is no “Microphone” section in this window, go to Options / Properties and check “Microphone” in the “Playback” list. Then make sure “Mute” IS checked in this window

Audio / Sound Playback: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume: Make sure "Microphone" is selected and the volume slider is at the center or higher
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume / Advanced: If “Microphone Boost” or “20db Boost” is present, select it


Vista: Windows Control Panel / Hardware and Sound / Sound / Manage Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Playback devices"

Playback: Your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Playback: Select your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Playback / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Playback / Properties / Levels: “Mute” is not on, volume slider in the middle

Recording: Your Microphone or on board sound/Sound card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Recording: Select your Microphone or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Recording / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Recording / Properties / Custom: If “Microphone Boost” is present, select it.
Recording / Properties / Levels: Microphone volume should be centre or higher
Recording / Properties / Levels: If there is a “Mute” button, it must not be on

Skype / Tools / Options / Audio Settings:

Microphone: Your headset/mic or USB device or Web cam mic, as you prefer
Speakers: Your headset, USB device or speakers, as you prefer
Ringing: VoIPVoice USB Phone or on board sound/Sound Card; also tick Ring PC speaker

Note: The audio devices you want to use MUST be present in these Skype device lists. If they are not, check the device connections and driver installations again.

2. Microphone and Speaker connections

Check if your mic (pink) and speaker (lime) jacks are in the proper sockets (it is easy to reverse them) and fully inserted (they sometimes stick only partially inserted)
If your microphone or headset has a “Mute” switch, make sure it is not on
If your speakers or headset has a volume control, make sure it is turned up
For test only you can use an earphone instead of microphone (really)! Just unplug the microphone, plug the earphone into the microphone jack, and talk into your earphones. (I know it sounds silly, but it might tell you if your microphone is defective)
A standard microphone plugged into Line In will NOT work.

3. Check audio in Windows.

XP: Start / All Programs / Accessories / Entertainment / Sound Recorder

Vista: Start [Orb] / All Programs / Accessories / Sound Recorder

Make a short recording with the microphone; you should see the level meters moving as you speak. On Windows XP, you can then play back what you recorded.

4. Once done, test with Skype Test Call (echo123).

Microphone


Open system properities. click hardware tab & than device manager. Scoll down to Sound, video & game controller. Do you see a yellow ! point there. That means the driver may need to be reinstalled. Asus is famous for having defective mic controllers & yes the sound works but no mic. You can also open control panel open sound & audio devices. You should have the same device under Audio & Voice. If you do, again your intergrated mic controller is bad. Your manual most likely will not have the correct number to call tech. They moved in 07. So I'll put it in here: 812-282-2787Tech IL Eastern Time. Good luck!
