    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.

Will this receiver accomodate an iPod player? Thanks, Byron Nimocks


It may not take the iPod directly if it doesn't have a dock built in, but you can always connect the iPod to an available input with a suitable cable. You'll need a cable with a plug to fit the iPod headphone jack (a 1/8-inch stereo plug) at one end, and probably RCA plugs at the receiver end. Radio Shack sells one so you can see what you're looking for. If you have an iPod dock, they often have audio output jacks for connecting to your receiver. You may need a cable with RCA plugs on both ends.

Good Day,

You can purchase a mic through the manufacturer at this link

Just a FYI the mic used on your system is standard 1/4" plug so you can purchase a mic at any music or electronic shop and it will work.

Hi! How are you? I have a problem with my microphone RODE NT1A. I bought it, and I need to plug in it to my computer. What things I need? What should I do? Have a nice day! Thanks.


The Rode NT1A is a phantom powered mic, This means that a power supply is needed to provide 24 or 48 volt for the mic to work. None of the computer mic in provides this kind of power supply. The best solution is to use a suitable external audio card or another microphone.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer, clarifying also what you are about to do and what kind of available connections does the computer has (firewire, usb etc)
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

Is there a microphone built into the recorder and how do you get it to work


If your recorder has a microphone-in jack on it you can plug a mic into it directly and that will be recorded as the signal to whatever you're recording to. Your local Radio Shack will carry the plug converters you'll need if your microphone plug is either too large or too small for your mic-in jack.
Good luck! William

I have a Toshiba A305 with built-in Harman Kardon speakers which aren't working properly. I do get some sound but it seems to be coming from the back of the computer; & isn't as good as it was. I...


All fixed, thanks to Maanita. Problem was that I had a USB microphone (gooseneck Logitech AK5370) plugged in for my Skype calls. Not knowing anything about audio, I didn't realize the mic was interfering with my laptop speakers -- assumed turning off the mic was sufficient. Also, Maanita re-installed the sound drivers, which I wouldn't have known how to do. It sure beat calling someone at $60 an hour + expenses to come out here. What a delight to find Fixya! Thanks again!

Mic doesn't work.


I am guessing that if you have tried all of that and it is not working then maybe it just shorted out. Try wriggling it around to see if it goes in and out. If so then there is your problem. Shorts in wiring are tricky to fix but i would suggest just getting a new device.

My acer aspire 5920 is making alot of noise the built in microphone does not seem to turn off


ok i had the same problem up until today and i found a post on a site that really helped me out i had this problem for about two months and was very close the sending it into acers repair center but all it was, was a setting in the audio manager ok here is what you need to do go to control panel, then go to hardware and sound, and then go to manage audio devices under sound then go to recording then click on microphone and go to properties, then go to levels and you should see two settings microphone volume and and microphone boost if your microphone boost is set to +20 which it prolly is just slide it down to zero and wow your problem is fixed. Im not really sure what program might change this setting but acer should really check into it and your system shouldnt let programs change things such as this cause this is a very important setting for having a wonderful entertainment experience. well i hope this helps and all the credit here goes to original poster at http://wynddancer.livejournal.com/22092.html
