Question about Toshiba (P000257700) Microphone
I had this problem too. My built in mic wasnt working, but i went to the list of programs (Classic view of the start menu) and under the program folder TOSHIBA > Speech System it'll have a choice "Configure Microphone." After I went through that, it worked fine. Make sure you restart your webcam software though after you've done that if you had it open like me. Hope this works!

Well after 98 minutes of on hold the technician explained to me that the A215-S5837 without the webcam option does not have an internal microphone. Even though the sound card has the option for it the actual microphone hardware is not installed in the laptop! Oh well off to the store. It was still a good deal!

Go to the volume control panel (small speaker icon bottom right) and look for Options-Properties-Recording...is the microphone clicked on?

Most laptops sound control is found by going to Control Panel, Sounds and then clicking Mute in the box of the function you'd like to mute. Sometimes a speaker is down in the system tray in the lower right near your clock. Double clicking on that will open the same controls. If there is a button on the laptop itself, it is generally a "no sound" muting that I don't believe has anything to do with the internal microphone. HTH
