Acer laptops feature on-board microphones for sound recording purposes within Windows.
Since an internal microphone can be a very handy tool for communication and speech-to text capabilities, working without a functional mic can severely hinder work flow for many users.
If you do not have any prior knowledge of how to repair a non-functional microphone within Windows, you may feel the need to send off your Acer laptop for repair.
There is no need, because even the most novice Acer user can do it.

Go to "Start," "Control Panel," then double-click on "Add/remove Programs."
Click on the "Windows Setup" tab, "Multimedia," then select "Details."

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

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.

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 next Step.

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

Plugged in microphone not working

We really need more specific information to answer your question, like what kind of computer and operating system. But in the most general terms, make sure you are plugging your microphone into the microphone port and not the headphone port. Check that the volume setting is turned up and not muted. You might also have to turn the microphone on through the sound settings (usually found by right-click on the volume).

How do i turn the microphone on, on my Toshiba laptop

1 . Turn your computer on. Be sure that the speakers on your computer are turned on as well.

2 . Attach the adapter to the microphone cable, if it has not been done already.

3 . Find your computer's microphone input. On most PCs, there will be an area in back of the tower with red, blue and green plug-in ports. The red port is the one for microphones.

4 . Plug the microphone cable into the red port. If you see ports that are labeled "line-in" and "mic-in," be sure to plug the microphone into the port that says "mic-in."

5 . Double-click the small speaker icon on your computer to open up the mixer. Make sure the microphone column is not muted and adjust your volume until you are satisfied.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks for using Fixya.
