Question about Sony VAIO VGN-NR120E/S Notebook

Open Question

Front Mic disappeared, no working microphone

It happened before a few weeks back, and I was able to do a system restore to get my sound back (on skype calls, they can speak to me, but not hear me). there is a "microphone" listed, also Realtek High Definition Audio, says "working" ( Control Panel---.> Sound----> Manage audio Devices---> Recording Tab. I have Vista operating system) but no sound works through my mic to skype, even though I can hear my own voice come through the mic to my ears on my headset. I tried all the dates available for a system restore, but it did not reappear as before. Can I download it again from somewhere? what can I do? it was on the computer when I bought it. I really appreciate your help. Blessings, Shondra ~ Rose of Light

    I have never used anything, so I am not sure. What do I look for?

    Have you tested to see if the mic works for any other program such as sound recorder, Goldwave, etc.

Toshiba satellite A35-S159 Microphone


please answer the following questions and follow instructions accordinlgy:

1. did it ever work? what changed since?, if something change try to use system restore to go back to the time prior the changes

2. did you just installed the chat application? skype?msn messenger? yahoo messenger? if you just install the application where you are trying to use the mic. you need to configure your mic before you can use it. usually under tools or settings you will find sound devices, some computer may have more than one source of input sound (mic) so go into those settings and look for a way to set your mic as the source and test to ensure it is working. the configuration procedures may differ among applications.

3. did it work and stop working all of a sudden and system restore won't get it working again?? you may have a driver issue, first try to reinstall the driver for that you need to do into device manager, found the sound devices, select the device with a yellow ? or ! and attempt to uninstall the driver, then restart your computer, the driver will reinstall by itself, then go into the chat application and reconfigure your input device and test.
on some ocations you may have to look for a new driver to solve your problem for that you need to go into the manufacturer's website, look the model of your number up and look for the a possible new update for your sound device driver and installed as per manufacturer's instructions. find the drivers need for your system here

provide more details as noted above and if possible we will try to assist further.

Hellppp!


Sounds like a problem with the mainboard. Both of those jacks are attached directly to the mainboard. Anyhow, try doing a windows system restore to a day or two before the problem started. This will help to eliminate any software/config issues. If still no good, your best option is likely a PCMCIA (slot card) sound card. This will allow you to connect speakers and a microphone for probably less than 50 dollars. Let me know what happens.

Lenovo G3000 38Q - built-in mic not working under Windows XP but built=in speakers are working fine. How do i solve


I believe the problem is that your mic isn't working properly so follow these instructions:

1: Go to control panel and click on "sound"
2: When the sound window opens click on "recording" you should find the built in mic there in the dialog.
3: Click on your built in mic and click on configure.
4: Then, click on "levels" and set the microphone level to 50 and the microphone boost to +20.0dB

If that doesn't work try doing a system restore.Or you could try restoring the defaults on the sound pref.

Internal Microphone not working


This is not a problem with mic. Settings in System was changed so that mic has been muted. To enable goto contol pannel and Select Sound & Devices and Select Advanced in Device Volume there you will get Master Volume Settings Menu So that uncheck the Mic option and check for Mic Setting in that.
hope this will be helpful.
Thanks & Regards Nanda Kishore.

Mic problem


have you ever had a working microphone, if so then use a system restore - Start--> All Programs--> Accessories--> System Tools--> System Restore. Choose a date as to when it last worked. If this isnt the case, check drivers. If you have, then go to your hardware and make sure the mic is selected and you can run tests in there. hope this helps

How to fix and install the built in microphone of my acer laptop aspire 4720z


If the sound has worked on this machine after the new hard drive was installed, then all you need to do is a system restore from the start menu, acessories/system tools. You may need to go back a couple of restore point in order to get it back, but this should do the trick. If it hasn't worked since the new hard drive was installed, then ou will need to go to the manufacturer's support site and download the drivers.
