If the microphone is not working well you need to buy a headphone (external) which you can use for calling and listenin and even for recording.
It comes at a very cheap rate and is very handy

How to turn microphone on


Acer laptops feature on-board microphones for sound recording purposes within Windows.
Since an internal microphone can be a very handy tool for communication and speech-to text capabilities, working without a functional mic can severely hinder work flow for many users.
If you do not have any prior knowledge of how to repair a non-functional microphone within Windows, you may feel the need to send off your Acer laptop for repair.
There is no need, because even the most novice Acer user can do it.

Go to "Start," "Control Panel," then double-click on "Add/remove Programs."
Click on the "Windows Setup" tab, "Multimedia," then select "Details."

Choose "Sound Recorder" from that screen, then click "OK."
The Sound Recorder application will begin to run. Step 4 will begin the microphone test.

My acer aspire 5332 laptop doesnot have clear microphone sound


the issue is that the mic is built in and it has a poor quality ..It was meant to be used for instant messaging calls ..so if you have to make quality recordings use an external one ..either on usb or just plug one in the pink jack ..
you can also go to sound settings in control panel and try to adjust it ..turn on advanced and select to boost it up ..but low the volume to avoid oscillations ..

I have acer crystal eye webcam but is there already a microphone in the laptop ? or do you have to plug in a mocrophone ?


My acer has a small hole where the microphone is located, and it doesn't even have a webcam. So, I think your Acer Aspire has a built in microphone. Most laptops have had that since Windows 95 or 98 or so.

Can you tell me does the acer aspire 57322 have a built in microphone


Most of these Aspires have microphones built into the LCD bezel. Look for a tiny pinhole at the top of the LCD bezel. There may even be a small picture of a microphone etches into the plastic at that area.

Is the microphone available on compaq presario V6000 model for using skype


Any "modern" laptop will either have a built-in microphone,
or it will have a small "microphone-in" socket where any separately-purchased microphone can be connected. Look for a small hole with a PINK ring around the hole.
