Go to "Start", "Control Panel", Administrative Tools, Computer Management, click on "Device Manager" on the left hand side and look on the right hand side. See if you have a yellow exclamation next to the "Sounds, Video and Game Controllers". If yes, double-click on the line with the exclamation and then click on the driver tab at the top. Click update driver and when it asks if you would like to to check the internet for updated drivers, tell it yes, this time only and continue. After this process, it should either download and install a new driver for your sound card or install the one that was shipped with your computer. If this does not work, please let me know and we will check the next possible problem.

SOURCE: cannot get laptop microphone working

Double click on the little speaker icon on the Desktop toolbar at the bottom right of your screen. The volume control window will open. Click on options then properties. Next check the small round recording button. Now make sure he microphone box is checked then click ok. Now a window will open that will show your microphone recording level. Move the slider up about half way and make sure to check the small "Select" box near the bottom of the slider. Open up sound recorder or whatever application you are using and try to record. If this does not work I would get an external microphone plug it into your laptop and try recording again. If the external mic works then I would think that you internal microphone is not working. There are some very cheap external mics on the market that sound very good. If you are doing any serius recording you may want to invest in a USB microphone. The USB mic should come with it's own software and setup should be pretty simple. I hope I have been helpful.

The first thing that I suspect is that it couldn't locate the right drivers for installation. Still, I'd suggest that you try reinstalling the right drivers for you laptop. There's no harm reinstalling the drivers. Get the drivers for V2000 at this link, but you need to choose which OS are you using: Presario V2000 Audio Drivers. Take note too, that HP recommends that you delete your existing drivers first before installing the new ones.

The method of deleting and reinstalling can be found at Method 4: Delete and reinstall the original sound drivers of this LINK. That link includes the troubleshooting methods for audio/sound problems. You can go through the procedure that applies to you, but I'd still suggest that you do first METHOD 4.

Please let me know of your troubleshooting success by rating me here, or visit me at or at .

Good luck and enjoy!

Is the microphone available on compaq presario V6000 model for using skype

Any "modern" laptop will either have a built-in microphone,
or it will have a small "microphone-in" socket where any separately-purchased microphone can be connected. Look for a small hole with a PINK ring around the hole.

Microphone not working for presario c700

If it has Realtek device drivers check through that not WDM. Also, make sure you set the record settings for the mic to select it, not the play settings.

External microphone jack wont work

HAve you tried going into your mixer, by clicking on the sound icon at the bottom right of your screen, selecting microphone, and making sure its not on mute. it is on mute by default, you may also find a switch to apply more dB to the signal, you should try this and see if this corrects your problem

Battery charging

you need to replace the battery, don't leave your laptop plugged in when not in use, it will reduce the batteries life and eventually it will fail.

hope this helps
