You should be able to turn it on by going into your sound options :
Down in the lower right-hand corner you should see your volume control icon. Double click on that and it will bring up your volume control panel. Your microphone control should be listed here. Just make sure to uncheck the mute box and turn it up.
You may have to go to "options" and check "microphone" to get it to show up.
You may also need to go into the sound options (Start->Control Panel->Sounds and Audio Devices) to enable the correct recording device. Once you're in this window select the Audio tab and make sure your microphone is selected as the default recording device.
That should do it.
I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!
Go to Start - Control Panel - Sound - Recording - Recording and you will see a list of connected devices. Check that the Microphone is live and has a green tick and also that the driver name is present. Double click or Right Click the Microphone for setup options. If it is not working you may have to reinstall the sound driver. If this is not working then check Start - Control Panel - Device Manager - Sound, Video and Game Controllers to see if there ay alerts or errors (highlighted in Yellow and Red respectively). Also check Start - Control Panel - Device Manager - System Devices to see if there ay alerts or errors (highlighted in Yellow and Red respectively). If there are no errors then you should be able to use the microphone successfully. The volume may be muted. In Windows, look at the volume control icon on the taskbar. If it is crossed-out, click on the icon and deselect the Mute option. • The volume level may be too low. In Windows, click on the volume control icon on the taskbar, and then use the slider control to increase the volume level. • If headphones are connected to the headphone jack on the computer, your computer's built-in speakers will be turned off.
Right click on the speaker in the bottom corner (or go to sound in the control panel) and go to playback devices. Then click speakers, then click properties. Go to the levels tab and mute/lower the volume of the microphones.
First, make sure you have a webcam with a microphone, and run any test software the webcam came with to check and make sure it is *supposed* to work. Next, open SOUND PROPERTIES through the CONTROL PANEL and then from the menu go to ADVANCED and RECORDING and OKAY, to bring up a volume array that includes the control MICROPHONE. Then, dig around to make sure MICROPHONE is the input being selected for amplification, and try ADVANCED on MICROPHONE and turn on BOOST if it has this control. You can test whether all of this worked by opening SOUND RECORDER from ACCESSORIES and making a short recording of yourself cursing the machine and everyone who designs them. If it plays back normally, try your web camera again. If it still has no sound, the problem is in the settings of the web camera itself. Open whatever software it came with and check setting like MUTE and MICROPHONE VOLUME are set correctly.
