Laptop Microphone- Hardware Problem?

I have a Toshiba Satellite L645-S4108. Recently its microphone stopped working. Looking at the control panel for sound, the microphone doesn't register any sound unless I flick my fingernail against the hole where the mic is. For a while it was working on and off again, but now it seems to have died entirely. I'm thinking this will require a replacement, but I'm not entirely sure where to find that part, or how to put it in. I'd be grateful for any help at all!

have u only used messenger to test your mic? try other applications like a voice recorder, and see if yer mic will pick up there. if it does, then mabey u have the wrong version of messenger like if u have 32 bit or 64 bit version of windows. if it doesnt work, then you have a driver error and u can go into start>control panel>device manager>and other computers are different, but i'd go into imaging devices cuz my cam and mic are a full set of drivers together but see if you have a microphone on there. if not, then look at wot u can see that has any possible relation to a microphone, and select "update driver software" and it'll go online for ya and see if the drivers are up to date. and if its not the driver, then its your mic itself, and hopefully your under warranty, or if not, then just pay some money and get it fixed.

Microphone is not working


You need to check that all of your sound devices are enabled. Most laptops will shut down certain devices when on battery to conserve power.

There are setting available to alter the microphone gain in the sound settings part of the control panel. Under Sounds and Audio Devices Properties. Check the sound recording section under audio, make sure the microphone is enabled and that the volume slider is not at minimum. Under XP there is a test hardware button that should help.
