Internal Mic did not work

After weeks trying to figure out what had gone wrong on my Aspire one with the internal mic,... just decided that the microphone died... Tried every single driver and such..... to revive it.

I sent the laptop to Acer and they repaired it (you have a year warranty). It was picked by UPS and delivered back by UPS in 2 days.

So, recommend that anyone with this problem just sends the Acer for repair. My system was running Windows XP and the microphone worked for several weeks before it died.

Pro505xl mike does not work


Hi Davey,

You have a Radioshack PRO 505XL, and I take it that you have the mic connected to the set and not using the internal mic, is this correct?

If this is so, the problem might very well be the wrong mic for that radio brand & model, or if it's the correct mic, then it's a dead mic, but if you're referring to the radios internal mic, then it could be a wire has come lose or that mic needs replacement, which ever it is, it means replacement or re-soldering.

I hope this has been helpful.

Cheers,
Peter

You can try going into device manager and find the device and remove it then reboot and let it reinstall the mic drivers. If that does not work try going to the HP site and see if a new driver is available and install it. The mic could have gone bad and you may have to buy an external mic.

Hi, Internal microphone on my acer aspire 8920g which originally has vista is not working now on windows 7. To be honest I didn't pay attention while I had vista and can't now remember if it worked at...


I suggest you go into control panel and device manager and see if your internal mic is listed there. If it is right click on it and see if it is selected as your default mic. I believe it may be un-selected. If that doesn't work I would just use the external mic with Skype as the internal mics with most laptops aren't that good anyway.

Acer Aspire internal mic won't work.


You need to check the record settings and make sure the mic is not muted or turned down to low. Click START, CONTROL PANEL, then SOUND icon. Click the AUDIO tab up top. Make sure that your sound card is selected in the drop down menu under Sound Recording. Now click VOLUME tab. A new window will open up. Click OPTIONS then PROPERTIES. Make sure you have a check by the MIC and click OK. In the Recording Control window, turn the level up for Microphone and make sure it is not muted. Let me know what happens.

Gateway Tablet m-285 Internal Mic not working


I've seen that happen once before. The mic might have disconnected from the mainboard or the mic cable might be broken. The connector is located just to the left of the screen hinge (visible after removing the power button cover by lifting the right corner of it and pulling up and out gently). It is the small connector. If it is connected, then is either the wire roken or the mic itself has gone bad. The wire is routed under the screen bezel, which has to be removed in order to gain access to the mic and mic wire. The wire breaks at the neck of the hinge, where it is subject to torsion from swiveling the screen. Hope that helps

My microphone on my acer aspire one isnt working


This solution works for the Windows XP version. Go to msconfig.exe, then the Startup tab. UNCHECK rthdcpl and restart. Realtek driver doesn't load, but who cares...the microphone works now.
