Re: Mic not working stilllll!
I'm not certain about yours, but my Acer Aspire 5920 has an audio/volume turn button, just under the lip of the laptop, just to the right of center. Even if you un-mute it, if the volume is turned down all the way - the button revolves, so looking a the front, turning it counter-clockwise will turn the volume down to off, and you won't hear a thing, no matter how much you try to un-mute the thing.
So turn that rotating button to the right, to make it louder, after you have un-muted a control panel volume slider and moved it up, and that just might make it work for you.

On your Skype menu go to "Tools" at the top of your menu. Select "Options" and then select "Audio Settings". There is a drop down menu for "Microphone". Try selecting each option until you see the "Volume Bar" start indicating that your mic is working.
in the bottom right hand corner, there should be an icon that looks like a speaker. left click it and display the "mixer" style control panel. When opened there should be a series of faders (sliders) with titles either above or below each fader. Click on the box that says "mute". Your microphone should now be muted and the feedback problem cured. Don't forget to unmute the mic again if you use it.
Go to control panel and sound devices and unmute the mic under record options. To avoid feed back use headphones or mute the mic in the play back option. Audacity is a good open source application to use to record on your PC.
make sure the mic jack is not in the speaker jack please try swap it. if it does not work, plug the mic and go to control panel select sound devices there u can set ur mic, if not reinstall ur sound driver, thanks, dont forget to vote me if it works
If you have one front panel and one back panel mic input port, Front panel is active by default on most systems. Try front first. if that is ok..or even if not, click on sound icon near clock (double click) select input/recording. unmute the mic or check it as input. thanks
If you are using xp, try going to the control panel, sound and audio devices, click on audio tab.
to check the mic settings, click on the volume tab under the sound recording sections. Make sure that the mic is selected and the volume turned up. It may be working only to record, not to hearback without recording...so you may have to actually be recording or talking to someone to know if its workings.
To check the sound, check to see if your audio device is selected under "sound playback" section...and make sure that all channels are unmuted and turned up. you may also have to check the volume control on the laptop (actual buttons on the pc) if there are any, and make sure that the volume is up and unmuted there also.
Hope this helps.
i know this might sound a little obvious and maybe irrelevant to the problem, but did you press the switch on the mic? it will turn the mic on and off. make sure sound and mic are unmuted in windows volume control. if both are these didnt solve the problem, test the mic on another computer. if the mic works, maybe its not the mic that has the problem. if the mic doesnt work, then your mic may be defective or damaged in some way or other.
