I need to activate my built in microphone...

I have a compaq laptop and yesterday I was trying to mute the microphone so I right clicked on the volume icon in the bottom right corner and went to recording and then hit properties for my mic. I then clicked device usage and made it disabled. This wasn't what I meant to do, and now my microphone doesn't work at all and I don't know how to enable it again because the microphone icon disappeared.

Does the 1030NR netbook have a built in micro-phone? If yes, How do I activate it for Skype use?


No, there is no built-in microphone on your machine, you have to buy one separately.
NB! It requires a combined headphone/microphone jack. The regular jacks work for the headphones, however the microphones will not work.

Microphone not workingon aspire 4720 z


You must provide more information please but to assist with troubleshooting this issue ( I am assuming that you have a regular microphone input that is a 1/8 inch plug.
1. Test the microphone in another pc to see if you get a response. If so then the issue is in the Windows volume control window.
2.Click the volume control icon in (usually lower right corner of the screen.
3.you will then see a slider bar and a mute box and the word "mixer" should be visible.
4. Click the "Mixer" link and you will see tabs captioned as General ,customer ,levels, (your sound card name), and advanced. Click the "advance) tab this will show you what is muted or checked for mute.
5. If there is a check or is is muted for you microphone then click or un check or deselect it. Then try your microphone. You should here audio.
6. click apply or OK and this will set the microphone to activate

Make sure the microphone is not "muted" and the slider is up in the mixer panel. Usually you can right click on the speaker icon in the lower right of your window to activate the mixer panel window.
