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

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.

Turn off itself while loading windows logo

This could be either a software or a hardware problem. the reason it works in safemode is because safemode does not initiate some on the drivers by recovery with recovery cd does. I recommend that you formatt your harddrive completely then install a fresh copy of your vista operating system. then install the correct device drivers (download from the manufactures website if you have doubts) to your system 1 by 1, restarting the system after each driver installation. this should work and if the problem persists at least you will be able to identfy which device is giving you a problem as it will restart itself again after you install the driver for that device.

You need to check you owners manual, and see if they can tell you, if you need to reinstall drivers for the microphone. Go to the Toshiba usa website and check the support area for frequently asked questions and troubleshooting sections. You may find that someone had the problem and had a solution posted. If not use the customer service e-mail or telephone number to get technical assistance for your problem.I hope this helps you with your problem.
