I can not used my built-in microphone, it's not functioning.
But i can use my headphone when i plugged into the audio jack of my acer aspire one notebook.
I already did the solution(To test the microphone, click "start" button, then "Control Panel", then "Sounds and Audio Devices". On the popup window that opens, click on the "Voice" tab, then click on the button that says "Test Hardware". After several seconds this will bring up a test program that will show a noise level meter when you're speaking into the microphone. "The default device listed under voice recording should be "Realtek HD Audio Input".) to my acer aspire one notebook. But still, it's not working.
My problem is, i can not use it, in outdoor or its portability. I have to bring my head set/ headphone. Too many things to bring in my case. Its not portable. I am uncomfortable with my Acer Aspire One notebook every time i bring out in outdoor area. Like Malls & Restaurant, etc.

Try plugging in an external microphone. If it works, then your internal microphone has failed. If the external microphone also doesn't work, then try reloading the Realtek Audio Driver. There is also the possibility if you have previously used an external microphone, that the jack's connections have become unreliable such that the system thinks that an external microphone is still connected after it has been unplugged. With this situation, plugging an external microphone back in will obviously work.
May I know if have tried alternate headphones and if they are the same?Does the headphone work when wiggled within the port if yes then the issue is with the headphone jack being loose and you would need to send the computer for a repair if covered by the manufacturers warranty as the headphone jack needs to be replaced.
Thank you for your time.
Hello and Welcome to FixYa! NO, sad but true Aspire 5332 doesn't have a in-built Mic, you need to buy a separate one and plug it in the Mic jack. I hope you understand, If you are having any more questions, feel free to ask. Regards, Waqar.

I had the same problem with my Acer 5570 and I just fixed it. What I did is to go to Control Panel > Sounds And Audio Devices >Hardware >On Devices click on Reatek High Definition Audio >Click Properties > On Devise Usage choose the option Do not use this devise (disable) > click OK >then plug in your headphones, click on Realtek High Definition Audio properties again and click on Enable Devise **with the headphones plugged in**. It worked for me.
