Re: Cannot find built in microphone on laptop HP Compac...
This model hp compaq nc6120 pc notebook has NO built-in mic. I read it on the manufactures website in the "reviews" section. But it does have a port where you can connect an external mic and it will work "BEAUTIFULLY" The port is on the right side of the laptop next to the dvd/cd drive.

Let me know if the internal microphone works fine while not on Google chat. Do send me a picture of Sound icon and then I can check and see what can be done.
To access Sound icon you may follow the below steps:
(1)Right click on Speaker icon on the status bar.
(2)Select Recording devices.
(3)Now send me a picture of this screen.
Analysis- The call can gear very well - indicates that the speakers / head phones are working fine and the audio drivers are working well The called person doesnt hear any thing - it indicates that the caller is not able to transmit sound. This can be a microphone related issue. It can also be skype settings issue.
Please answer following questions to analyze the issue better
1. has this ever worked before? 2. Have you tried using the microphone for some other application like recording some audio? 3. Have you tried audio / video calls using some other chat program like gtalk? 4. Are u using any external microphone attached to a head set or is it the laptops inbuilt microphone?
You should have an application called Acer Crystal Eye on your system for the built-in WebCam. Check the Programs list under the Start window for Acer Crystal Eye. This should turn on the camera.
For the microphone click Start>Control Panel>Sound>Recording to see if the microphone is being detected. If it is, click on the Microphone icon and turn the microphone on.
Let me know if you need a driver or have any other questions. Thanks.
If they can hear your breathing that means that you are not speaking in to the microphone, do a microphone test on the computer and see if you hear your own voice. If you don't the program that your using is set to use wrong sound input and the settings will have to be changed.
are you sure that you microphone is working properly?
if yes then there must maybe some problems with your microphone port in your pc..
but try this though :
in the volume control menu ensure that the microphone is not set to mute
what else u can try is u can try the mic with the other port and still if it doesnt work,the other person is still not able to hear then try and do the voice chat with some one else and if the other person on the different chat will be able to hear u then definately the prob is with the other person's computer it is not with ur computer.
