I believe the problem is that your mic isn't working properly so follow these instructions:

1: Go to control panel and click on "sound"
2: When the sound window opens click on "recording" you should find the built in mic there in the dialog.
3: Click on your built in mic and click on configure.
4: Then, click on "levels" and set the microphone level to 50 and the microphone boost to +20.0dB

If that doesn't work try doing a system restore.Or you could try restoring the defaults on the sound pref.

Turning on Microphone Boost in Windows XP:

Not all sound cards support Microphone Boost. The simplest way to find out in Windows XP is to open the Windows Volume Control. If a speaker icon speakericon.gif is displayed at the lower right hand corner of the Windows Desktop double-click it. If no speaker icon is displayed then click the Windows Start button and select "Run..." In the Open box enter sndvol32.exe and click the OK button. This will open the Windows Volume Control. Select "Advanced Controls" from the Windows Volume Control's Options menu. You should see an "Advanced" button near the lower right hand corner of the Windows Volume Control screen. Click the Advanced button. If the "Advanced Controls for Microphone" screen shows a check box for "Microphone Boost" then check that box and click Close. Now try making a test recording and see if it works.
Now, If you do not find this option, I found an amazing video that might just do the trick. Click on the
link and view how to see the hidden "Mickey" :). Mic Boost.

make sure that your mic input is not muted. look under control panel/sound and audio devices, then under your microphone, select "volume" and make sure the input is selected (with a chack mark in the box under the mic volume control) and not muted.

Sound from one speaker with mic plugged in.


Hi I am Vortash it sounds to me that this is linked to the realtek program off shutting off the speakers when the earphones are attatched , it is confusing the Mic plug on one channel as a speaker plug .. check in the advanced section of your mixer settings that you have not got the box ticked that says treat all inputs the same .. and the other that says mute rear when front plugged in ? as does mine .. ( same system that was my problem yours may be diffrent ) if this fails uninstall your realtek drivers and uncheck the realtek devices in device manager unistall them and rebboot the computer installing new drivers .. hope this helps regards Vortash

Headset and inbuilt speaker works at same time


Can you not just disable the built-in speakers in control panel while you're chatting on the mic?

I cant get my built in mic to work for my acer travelmate 2313LCi..?


I'm assuming your speakers work and you're running Windows XP. Please correct me if otherwise.

There are two settings for the microphone in Windows XP. One is for the volume of the mic you hear through the speakers. The other is for the recording volume of the microphone (and the volume others here when you speak to them through Skype or another program).

First check the recording volume:
Volume Manager (double click on speaker icon on your taskbar) -> Options -> Properties -> Recording -> OK -> Make sure the Microphone slider is at least halfway turned up and make sure the Microphone is selected

Next check the playback volume:
Volume Manager -> Options -> Properties -> Playback -> OK -> Make sure the Microphone isn't muted and adjust the volume according to your preferences

Microphone not picking up the voice


In order to use another microphone other than the built in microphone on a Logitech web camera, you will need to configure the new microphone to be your system's default microphone.

To change the default microphone in Windows:
  1. Click "Start," "Settings," and "Control Panel."
  2. Open the applet that corresponds to your operating system.
    1. Windows 98 users, double click on "Multimedia."
    2. Windows Me and Windows 2000 users, double click on "Sounds and Multimedia."
    3. Windows XP users, double click on "Sound and Audio Devices"
  3. Click the Audio tab.
  4. Set the microphone to the sound card in the drop down box that is appropriate for your operating system.
    1. Windows 98 and Me users, click on the Preferred Device for Recording box.
    2. Windows XP and Windows 2000, click on the Default Device box under Sound Recording.
If you are using the built in mic, open the Quickcam 11.5 software and adjust Audio Settings.
The Audio Settings provide access to device selection, basic audio levels, and AEC.
  • Select Microphone– Allows you to select desired microphone for video calling and video recording applications.
  • Volume indicator – Indicates the current input volume level..
  • Adjust Recording Volume – Toggles input volume level.
  • Cancel Echo – Enables or disables AEC for RightLight and RightLight 2 supported cameras.
  • Select Speakers – Allows you to select desired speaker source for video calling and recording applications.
  • Audio Tuning Wizard – Launches the Audio Tuning Wizard
If all this fails, it could indicate a problem with your soundcard. Try using some speakers or another mic and see if they work. If they don't, you card is faulty. Remenber to set up your mic in the volume properties. On the lower right hand of the screen, you should see a volume icon. Right click and select open volume control. Select Options and the Properties. Select Recording and check all boxes below. Close that window and now make sure Mic level is max and not muted.

Hope that helps!
