Hp Dv6000, problems recording with built in microphones

I hook up nicer microphones to my computer to record but the built in ones still pick up the noise i believe, it records fin for about 2 seconds then everything sounds like ****, like if you blow into a microphone. How do i go about turning these built in mics off without turning off the mic input jack? I have the same problem as well. When you try to record anything it's good for about 2 seconds and then the sound becomes muffled and crappy and then it will let off again after a while and then come back. I even tried using the jack in the front of the computer but that does the same thing when i try to record. I was going to use this computer primarily for recording music but i can't do that if the quality is compromised. Disabling the mic will not fix the problem. We want to be able to record with the mic not never use it. Why would HP put a mic in if they didn't expect people to use it? I think it needs new device drivers maybe. idk though, please help if you know

    if i did that i wouldn't be able to record out of the line in. There is no onboard microphone to disable from the device manager, just the sound card as one. which if i did that will not let me hear anything either. please help.

    i actually found it, i went to the control panel then i went to smart audio. In that they have a mic reduction Microphone Enhancement. This is the thing that's been reducing my sound, so i turned it off. thanks guys.

When I record the sound cracles and the sound is distorted when viewing the recording


Hi Robert,

Are you recording using your laptop's built in microphone? I'm not going to lie to you - the majority of the time these microphones aren't the best ot record with.

You can try turning down the gain on the microphone in your sound settings - or try picking up an external microphone.

For general clean up on your computer, I recommend checking out the following article:

How to Clean up Slow Performing Computer

Hope this helps!

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


1
Go to "Start," "Control Panel," then double-click on "Add/remove Programs."
2

Click on the "Windows Setup" tab, "Multimedia," then select "Details."

3

Choose "Sound Recorder" from that screen, then click "OK." The Sound Recorder application will begin to run.
Step 4 will begin the microphone test.
4

Click "Record," which is the circle located on the right side of the user interface.
If you hardware device is functional, you should see the recording display begin to move.
5

Press "Stop," "Rewind," then "Play" to verify the audio that has been recorded.
If you are able to hear what the microphone picked up, but are having trouble hearing the microphone's input within other software, refer to the software's manual about proper configuration of the device.

If you were unable to record with your Acer microphone in Sound Recorder, continue to Step 6. 6

Scroll your mouse over to the bottom-right corner of your computer screen and then double-click on the small speaker icon.
7

Slide the microphone volume slider all the way to the top and make sure that there hasn't been a mute check-box selected.

If you are still experiencing error while recording with your Acer laptop's built-in microphone, you most likely have faulty hardware that needs to be replaced by Acer directly.

Does HP compaq nx6310 has built in microphone, how can i record my voice using built in microphone instead of using headset.


Check next to the camera there should be a small hole. That is the microphone. There should be a program on the laptop called voice recorder.

Computer Does Not Detect Headset Microphone


Sound and Recording jacks stop working on the DV6000 series due to the ribbon cable running under the power button. when the power button is pushed it bends the flex cable and over time it breaks the connection rendering the front jacks useless you can buy a new upper button panel for about 20 dollars on ebay

HP Mic doesn't work in sound recorder but does in video recorder


Hi,

This is not a problem.
Just configure your microphone as a recording device under Recording device properties.

You can do it by double clicking on the volume control and get to the recording devices property pages.
You can do the same through Control Panel as well.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

HP Laptop Microphone Jack


It sounds like you just need to choose the default audi input device. You can do this by going to the control panel.

Start Menu > Control Panel > Sound
http://i298.photobucket.com/albums/mm260/mshockey89/Tech%20Support/ControlPanelSound.jpg

Once you get there just go to the recordings tab, select the device you want to use and hit "Set Default" after that you can hit properties and it should show you which jake it pertains too.

First of all, check if the issue is with the Microphones of your Notebook.
Try disabling or turning off the Microphone of the Notebook to check this.
Additionally, try reinstalling the Audio Drivers of the notebook if possible by checking the Notebook driver page.
