    Problems like that are generally easy to fix, but we need more information to know what the problem may be. Please provide a model number for your laptop and clarify if you're using the same OS it came with. You may be experiencing driver issues if you switched to a different Operating System. Also, please note that you're requesting help with an issue that no one gets paid to solve, a "please" and a "thank you" would be nice :)

Good day, Hi, to test your laptop mic, open the sound recorder. 1. if you ar using XP, goto START, All Programs, Accessories, Entertaiment, Sound Recorder. If the sound recorder loads normally, press the red button, shout as load as you can, you will see sound waves on the recorder. 2. If the sound recorder does not loads, chances are your mic isn't working properly, Load the device Driver for your mic, you can find the driver on the CD that came with your laptop, if not you may need to go to the Internet to find the MIC driver. 3. If the driver is loaded on your laptop, chances are it may be defective, you have 2 options, 1. replace the mic on your laptop, which requires you to dismantel it, get the defective mic and replace it. 2. just get an external mic. hope this may help.

My integrated microphone stopped working today when i was Skyping my mother. I have tried installing/upgrading the drivers but it isnt working. I havent damaged the laptop in any way. I really need help...

The best is to try with an external microphone to see if the fault is only on the microphone hardware. If so you can test and use with athe external for the time being and need not tamper the laptop mic .
But if you are able to open and change with your expertise thendo so.
however if the external mic does not log on then the audio section hardware is faulty.

Does my acer laptop have a built in microphone

That depends on the model of acer laptop you have.

One way to check, would be to go to

all programs, accessories , run,

type in devmgmt.msc and press enter.

Then on the screen that comes up see if you have a microphone listed. If not, you either do not have one, or it isnt working , or installed.
