There's no internal microphone installed on your laptop but there is one microphone port installed on your laptop.

Please see your system's manual.

Sony vaio microphone isn't working. Mic enabled. Drivers are all updated. Any suggestions?


If you plug another mic or even headphones into the mic socket and it works, then your internal mic has the issue. If it still doesn't, you have a configuration issue with the audio driver.

Does the Sony VAIO VGN-NR385E have an internal mic? How do I find out? Also, I've heard about people complaining about it not being plugged in internally. How do you rectify this?


It appears that this unit does not come with a built-in mic and relies on an external mic being plugged into it for audio input. It is sold as a low-end or "Budget" machine and doesn't have many "bells and whistles".

I have a Sony VAIO VGN-FZ220E. The person I talk to on Skype can not hear me and Skype gives me a message that my microphone is silent. I go to Control Panel/ Audio and look at "Recording Devices" and...


The unavailable device could be the mic jack for the external mic. Try going into the skype options menu and select the mic audio there. It will also test it at the same time. Good Luck

Vaio internal mic


Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype. Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
Hope this helps. Bud

Using Skype - Intneral mic no longer works


Its due to your internal laptop MIC's failure! Plz check at any Compaq Service station! Becoz its internal hardware error! Becoz there r no seperate drivers for MIC! If your speakers are working great then MIC should work or else try to get repaired it!

Built in Mic?


well, to find out if your computer has a mic open up the audio mixer (double click the speaker in the right hand side of you screen), if you do not see your microphone, go to Options>Properties, and select "microphone", then go to options, advanced controls, under microphone, if you see a "advanced" button, click it (if you dont see it, there is no internal mic), if you see Mic2 Select, you probably have a internal mic. Another way to find out if you have a internal mic is to go to the sound recorder, and see if you can record your self, However if your going to be using skype, i recommend you get an external mic
