Double click on the sound icon in sys tray to access properties and disable from there or just turn the slider all the way down

You should be able to mute it in the sound mixer. That yellow speaker in the System Tray (double left click). Remember to select the Recording one from the top menu if necessary to pull up the sliders and mute buttons display.

External microphone thinkpad t41


Control Panel, Sounds, look at Recording devices (depends on the OS you are using, you didn't mention, Vista, XP, 7,8?), Mic. Your Headphones jack, when in use, will cause the internal sound to disable, depending on OS the mic setup is a bit different but you should find it in sounds, recording devices.

The microphone on my computer is not working. i can hear someone else on skyp but they cant hear me. and i can not record a video.


Hi,

Is this a built in microphone on your laptop or a microphone on a external headset?

Make sure the Mic is not muted on your computer. In Windows, you can do this by going to the bottom right of your desktop in the toolbar and right clicking on the Sound icon. Select Recording Devices and make sure the Microphone item is not muted. Go into the properties of it and make sure the volume is not set to 0. Make sure it is not disabled as well.

Has the Mic ever worked before?

Comment back if you need and I will assist further.

Regards,
G33k

My mircophone is not working on my MSI laptop


Hello Freshnoble, hi! try first the sound recorder program, for testing purposes, if you are using XP, it goes, start, all programs, accessories, entertainment, sound recorder. Shout on the mic, you should see wave pattern on the sound recorder program. if not. the problem can be hardware and/or software. If its the hardware, check the microphone, is the mic built-in or are you using an external mic? if built in, try to enable first the microphone, right click the speaker on the lower right side of windows, select adjust audio properties, sound, at this point you should see the sound recorder device, select mic volume and adjust it all the way. test again the sound recorder. If you did not reach this point, there is some thing wrong with the device driver, load the sound driver first and test the mic again.

I have an acer aspire one netbook and would like to know how to sue the built in microphone. i see the little icon and hole near the built in web cam but cant figure out how to use it to record lectures...


In your start menu, all programs you can go to accessories and select entertainment. there is a sound recorder program in there. by default you will record from the mic next to the cam.

here is the problem. Those mics are pretty direct dimensional and will not pick up soudn more than a few feet from them. You will be better off getting an external mic and adjusting its volume over trying to use the builtin one

How do i connect an external microphone to my philips freevents x55. only the built in microphone is working. an externally connected mic does not over-ride the internal one?


Your default recording device is still set on the built-in mic.

In Microsoft XP...
Choose Start > Settings > Control Panel and double-click the Sounds and Audio Devices tab
Select the Voice tab and choose the the appropriate item in the Voice recording Default device pop-up menu.

In Vista, choose Start> Control Panel > Sounds and click on the Recording tab.

In both instances, choose your external mic as the default.
Windows XP 1 Choose Start > Settings > Control Panel and double-click theSounds and Audio Devicescontrol panel.
2 Select the Voice tab and choose the the appropriate item in the Voice recording Default device pop-up menu.
