Question about Compaq MV 540 15" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Integrated microphone... I've never had a monitor with a built-in mic before, so I'm utterly clueless as to why its not working. The only way I've figured out how to test it is to use the system sound recorder, but I get nothing but white noise. Why isn't it working? i mean, should it "just work" or should I have a cord plugged into it somewhere? Please help. Thnx much.

Re: integrated microphone...

If the monitor actually has a built in mic, you will have to connect a cable from it to the "mic in" jack on your sound card/motherboard, there isn't any way a standard VGA cable can carry that signal back to the comp. Look for a plug, or a separate cable coming out of the monitor.

Does the Hp w1907 have a built in monitor microphone? If so, how do I activate it for an online meeting?

I'm sorry but it does not. I also wanted to find this out a long time ago. If you use skype or some other type of chatting. It will only output what is happening on the computer like watching a video or anything else. The only possible way for you to make a cheap and inexpensive mic is using the headphones that you have, and put them in the microphone slot in you PC and or Laptop.

Where is the microphone situated? Have just downloaded skype. The speakers are working but not the microphone.

If you mean in the monitor, they do not usually have a microphone, if you mean on a laptop, it is usually a small hole on the top of the laptop, or the Red Jack on it, and desktop, PC's don't have any, and must be added, via, USB or red, Phono jack

People are unable to hear me on Skype. The built webcam on monitor is working properly, but the mic is not.

You monitor with built-in web camera may only process the video signal through the USB only, not audio from the microphone, look for analog microphone output jack to hook it up to your PC microphone input.

Asus 19inch monitor with web cam mic not working

double click on the microphone volume thing at the bottom right of your start menu bar, that should bring up your volume levels, make sure the mic isn't muted. Also check to see if there are any microphone cables to plug into your soundcard. It's also possible it's just a webcam and doesn't have a microphone with it.
