Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
Both my mom and I have a HP Pavilion dv 1000 notebook computer. We have been using them to make skype calls and after several weeks, both microphones just stopped working, mid coversation. I tried an external microphone but it didn't pick up sound. The only sound the person on the other end of the line could here, was when I pulled my microphone jack in and out of the port. It would make a clicking noise on the other end. Do you know what may have caused these mics to suddenly die and how do we fix them or get an external mic to work?
Try this on both computers:
go to start
sounds and audio devices
click on audio
make sure that a mic is selected.
double click on the small spkr icon at the end of ur taskbar
make sure ur mic channel is enabled

Try un-installing Skype and see if the mics work after that...Maybe Skype is causing the issue. If both computer's mics stopped at nearly the same time it's gotta be a software issue....or both computers got a virus. The odds of the microphone hardware going out at nearly the same time has to be very low...but not impossible.

Hey! I have the same problem with my Toshiba P105. I use Skype and the microphone stopped working suddently. It happens to be that it does not work with Linux either...!!
I thought it was a physical problem... probably that my daughter pulled it up improperly. But now I see that it might not be what caused the problem.. Does anybody has an idea about what is going on?
