    well, thanks for trying but i can't find any grey speaker icon in my taskbar that matches your description. I'm running Windows Vista, so if that means anything, i posted it.

    Sorry After RE-Reading your soultion i realized you said right click not left click, I found the microphone settings and turned the recording and boost all the way up, however it still didnt work.

Assuming that the mic itself isnt faulty, go to the right side of your taskbar and right click on the grey spekaer, not the red one and click on recording devices. When the window pops up make sure the mic realtek HD audio has a green tick and not the line in icon, next click properties and check the settings,you can also configure the mic from this window.

    you may have already but check the red speaker icon also, right click and click sound manager and then click on the microphone tab and check tht it's also showing as the default device there also and not muted

Do i need a pc card for my wireless connection i have an acer 5050


Hi,

No the laptop has an in-built wireless card so there's no need for an add-on.
The switch is a slide switch which is at the very front of the laptop on the left hand side of the headphone and microphone jack.
When you slide the switch a LED will come on.


Regards.

Webbcam works but no sound or microphone


First, make sure you have a webcam with a microphone, and run any test software the webcam came with to check and make sure it is *supposed* to work. Next, open SOUND PROPERTIES through the CONTROL PANEL and then from the menu go to ADVANCED and RECORDING and OKAY, to bring up a volume array that includes the control MICROPHONE. Then, dig around to make sure MICROPHONE is the input being selected for amplification, and try ADVANCED on MICROPHONE and turn on BOOST if it has this control. You can test whether all of this worked by opening SOUND RECORDER from ACCESSORIES and making a short recording of yourself cursing the machine and everyone who designs them. If it plays back normally, try your web camera again. If it still has no sound, the problem is in the settings of the web camera itself. Open whatever software it came with and check setting like MUTE and MICROPHONE VOLUME are set correctly.

Good luck...
