All of a sudden my microphone stopped working on notebook

All of a sudden my microphone stopped working on my emachines m5405 notebook. I think it is a physical issue because I've updated all drivers. Can this be fixed or am I out of luck?

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. I actually have the microphone already plugged into the mic jack. Basically, the story goes that I was using it on Skype one day and the next day when I went to use it it didn't work. I've tried all different types of microphones and none work with it now; that's why I think it is a physical issue with the microphone jack. What do you think? Can the microphone jack be easily replace for my notebook? If so, where could I buy one?

Try plugging a mic in the mic hole to see if it works , that would eliminate the driver or the sound card issue.

if you dont have a mic you can use a diskman headset, and speak in to the ear part
wont be as loud but still good to test

- Try to use Microphone on another device and check is it working there? If No! Then replace the Microphone. If its working then update the drivers of your machine.
- Run Reginout scan and check is it your windows registry fine? After scanning if you found errors then fix it.

Hope it helps.

You will have to disassemble your laptop to get to the CMOS battery. Check out this guide for doing so:

You will have to remove the LCD Screen to get to two more small screws under the hinge attachments. Then two more screws to release the cover plate that the Touch Pad is mounted to (the entire remaining half of the main cover). Lift it up gently and the CMOS battery is located to the right of the Touch Pad position.

Need to remove the screen from my emachines 5405 laptop

The laptop screen is secured to the laptop with screws at the hinges.
There are usually two screws per hinge. The LCD screen has one ribbon cable and possibly a power connector for the back lighting attached to the motherboard near the hinges. Disconnect these, they are under the plastic panel next to the hinges.
