You should try to reinstall the device drivers in a proper manner from the driver resource cd.
you may have forgotten to install them.
and don't forgot to restart your system after doing that.

If my built in mic has stopped working..if i buy a mic..will that fix the problem?


Hi,

If the built in mic is not working but you are getting sounds from the speakers, you can still try to fix it by updating the audio driver of your laptop. Also try to check the settings to see if it is not disabled before you go ahead and buy an external mic.

Hope this helps.

Does the acer 5517 have a built in mic


Acer 5732z has a webcam but there is no built-in mic, you need to use the external mic connector (pink/red).

Feed back from speaker


Obviously it will make feedback. Microphone should be put on mute. Putting microphone on mute will not stop it working for recording sound or talking on voice chat. All you need to do is double click on speaker icon on system tray check the mute box of the Mic channel.

Good Luck
