    Sir,


    At right corner of desktop u see the audio properties. just double click it opened a pop-up windows. check the window->microphone it is enable or not sometimes the volume is low or mute. Increase the volume of microphone, line, wave, etc...... all the buttons of volume bar should be increased. if this is not showing there, go to options->click "advanced controls". If this is not solved u must reinstall the audio drivers. Go to control panel-> double click 'add/remove programs' check the listing of audio drivers softwares and uninstall it. or go to control panel double click the audio and devices icon and check all the necessary settings is to be selected or not.


    thanks
    goodluck

    ok. the best thing you can do is reinstall again the driver.

    DO complete uninstall of the sound driver
    Reboot the unit
    Then re install it again using your driver CD.

    How to uninstall a driver from Device Manager


    1. In the Control Panel window, click on Hardware and Sound.

    2. In the Hardware and Sound window scroll down until you see the Device Manager and click on it.

    3. Another way is to type Device Manager or 'mmc devmgmt.msc' in the Start Menu Search box. The Device Manager will appear and all that you have to do is to click on it.

    4. Before opening the Device Manager, an UAC prompt will pop-up, asking for your permission to continue.

    5. All your computer's components are sorted by categories so you can quickly find what you are looking for. Once you have found the component you want to uninstall, right-click on it and select Uninstall.

    6. After selecting OK, the driver isn’t completely uninstalled from the computer. That is why Windows Vista will prompt you about restarting your computer. Save your files and afterwards click the Yes button to completely uninstall the driver from your computer.

Hi!

Is the unit under warranty?
Please go to control panel-> sounds and audio devices and see if your internal mic is disabled.

    Depending on the Operating system you have on that laptop it will probably require different software.

Should i have a built in microphone in my acer aspire 5332 laptop


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.

I HAVE BUILTED IN MIC ON MY COMPUTER AND WHEN I GET ON MY WEBCAM I CAN HEAR THE PERSON BUT THEY CANT HEAR ME SOLVE THIS


hi,

there could be multiple causes of this problem. to fix we need to proceed step by step.

1. try another microphone - try using an external microphone and see if it works. if yes then there could be an issue with the internal hardware of the mic and to fix it you need to contact acer authorised service center.
if an external mic also does not work then please proceed to step 2
2. check the volume settings - go to control panel and then sound and audio devices. click on the audio tab. please ensure that under the sound recording section the audio driver(for acer aspire realtek mostly) should be selected.
3. go to device manager and reinstall the audio drivers.
4. if this is a recent problem that has been reported then please perform a system restore to a backdate when the mic issue was not there.

please let me know if any of this helps else we can check out further options.

Acer aspire 5520 laptop. Is it dead?


To verify it isn't a battery issue you can try taking the battery out completely and plugging in the A/C adapter and turning it on.

Without more information it's hard it's hard to diagnose your issue more specificially. Do you get any lights on the front?
