I've seen that happen once before. The mic might have disconnected from the mainboard or the mic cable might be broken. The connector is located just to the left of the screen hinge (visible after removing the power button cover by lifting the right corner of it and pulling up and out gently). It is the small connector. If it is connected, then is either the wire roken or the mic itself has gone bad. The wire is routed under the screen bezel, which has to be removed in order to gain access to the mic and mic wire. The wire breaks at the neck of the hinge, where it is subject to torsion from swiveling the screen. Hope that helps

The internal laptop microphone above the screen is producing feedback from the speakers and everytime the volume is raised above half way the feedback starts (very loud). It's definatley the mic because...


Most likely there's a shortage with the microphone connection, or is gone. You can turn if off if you dont use it via the control panel. But if you use microphone quite often then you can buy an external mic off ebay or some place you like. They come in elegant designs as well and they are fairly cheap.

Hope this helps.

Acer Aspire internal mic won't work.


You need to check the record settings and make sure the mic is not muted or turned down to low. Click START, CONTROL PANEL, then SOUND icon. Click the AUDIO tab up top. Make sure that your sound card is selected in the drop down menu under Sound Recording. Now click VOLUME tab. A new window will open up. Click OPTIONS then PROPERTIES. Make sure you have a check by the MIC and click OK. In the Recording Control window, turn the level up for Microphone and make sure it is not muted. Let me know what happens.

Internal microphone in gateway turned off, now will not turn on.


You may need to raise the level by going back into Control Panel -> Sound. From there, click the Recording tab -> right-click Microphone and select Properties. Finally, click the Levels tab and raise the level.

I had to do this on mine, too.

Hope this helps.
