1
Go to "Start," "Control Panel," then double-click on "Add/remove Programs."
2

Click on the "Windows Setup" tab, "Multimedia," then select "Details."

3

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

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.
5

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 Step 6. 6

Scroll your mouse over to the bottom-right corner of your computer screen and then double-click on the small speaker icon.
7

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.

SOURCE: does my acer laptop have a built in microphone

That depends on the model of acer laptop you have.

One way to check, would be to go to

all programs, accessories , run,

type in devmgmt.msc and press enter.

Then on the screen that comes up see if you have a microphone listed. If not, you either do not have one, or it isnt working , or installed.

Hi,

Make sure you also install the Audio driver from Acer. If after installing the Audio driver from Acer it still does not work right click on your speaker icon in the System Tray and select Recording Devices. Highlight your microphone device in the list the click Properties. Click on the Levels tab and make sure the microphone is not muted and the volume is turned up.

Hey,

It is all because the Microphone is not set as a default device to start recording.

Its like your computer has no device for recording even if the computer has connected with Mic.

Just change the settings and enjoy..!!!

How to fix and install the built in microphone of my acer laptop aspire 4720z


If the sound has worked on this machine after the new hard drive was installed, then all you need to do is a system restore from the start menu, acessories/system tools. You may need to go back a couple of restore point in order to get it back, but this should do the trick. If it hasn't worked since the new hard drive was installed, then ou will need to go to the manufacturer's support site and download the drivers.

Right click the sound icon in the lower right of the screen, near the clock and select 'open volume control'. Next click 'options' and select 'properties'. Click 'recording' and make sure that 'mic' is checked. Make sur ethat it is not muted either.
