Microphone not working, but speakers and sound is working.

Toshiba S1900-102 Notebook


Don't know what happened, my laptop crashed and I re-installed everything since then the microphone has problems, I call people on Skype they are able to hear me but I am unable to hear them. Watching movies, cd-sound everything seems to be ok.


My sound card is Crystal WDM audio codec...the hardware manager says its working ok. Do I need to install anything else to have the microphone working when using chat/skype etc...I would appreciate if you can help fix this problem.


Thanks in advance

Re: Microphone not working, but speakers and sound is...

First off, if they can hear you and you can't hear them, it's not your microphone. It is more likely related to your sound card, possibly a driver update could fix your issue. Go to Toshiba's support site here's the link for the portege model listed above:, and select drivers and look for the sound card drivers with the latest/most recent date, download them and update your driver to see if that fixes your issue.
Since you post that your sound works in other areas just not chat or Skype, you might also want to do a Windows update on their site and choose custom for your choice so you can review hardware and software updates to add to any critical/security updates found on your PC, and that may fix your issue also.
Good luck.

Hi there, I've just bought an Acer notebook ASPIRE 5750, windows 7 home office. Everything is ok, but softwares like speech recognition, skype and google talk, don't recognize my microphone...

You may have to disable the onboard microphone to use the connected hardware.
Realtek is very picky, same goes with speakers connected to the back and front at the same time, no sound. Disable the one you are not using.

I changed my Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527's Vista operating system to windows 7 but afterwards, I have been experiencing microphone and speaker problems. My microphone is not working and my speaker volume...

Go to this website and select windows 7(32) or (64) depends on what version you are using then on the categories select sound and click Realtek Audio Driver for Windows 7 (32/64)(v6.0.1.5904; 09-03-2009; 60.61M) then click the red download now button to start downloading the driver. After downloading, install the driver that you have downloaded to update the sound driver of your laptop. If prompted for a restart, restart your computer then check your computer for a sound.

If the driver you downloaded will not fix the audio problem, you have to return to it's original operating system (windows vista) of your laptop by reformatting from a clean installation using windows vista installer.

Installation of Windows 7 is not supported by Toshiba for laptops made prior to 2007. Have a nice day.

I can't hear sound from my laptop even with the builtin speakers. It's a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4064.

On the front of the laptop there is a circular knob, play a music cd and then turn the knob from left to right and see if the sound comes back, if that doesn't work then make sure where the speaker is in the bottom right hand side of the screen click on it and make sure the volume is turned up.

If it still doesn't work then reload the sound drivers. At this point if the sound still won't work then that means that either the speakers or the motherboard is bad and you won't know for sure unless you replace the speakers first.
