Choose "Sound Recorder" from that screen, then click "OK." The Sound Recorder application will begin to run.

If you hardware device is functional, you should see the recording display begin to move.
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.
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.

Hi I am Vortash check what audio devices you have in device manager .. under sound and video controllers, select and un-install then re-boot give the unit any software it requires in the installation wizard and check if the microphone is back .
If not back up any documents and data you wish to keep and do a system restore to a point where you know the Mic worked .. hope this helps .. Regards Vortash

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.
