Re: Feed back from speaker

Obviously it will make feedback. Microphone should be put on mute. Putting microphone on mute will not stop it working for recording sound or talking on voice chat. All you need to do is double click on speaker icon on system tray check the mute box of the Mic channel.

Good Luck

Does it have a built in mic

If it doesn't have a web cam then it wont have a built in mic. However you can buy cheap plug-in ones.

Built in mic not working

You may be able to solve this by clicking around in the sound settings (start > control panels > sounds). Often the mic is muted.

if that doesn't work, get an external laptop mic for .99c on eBay/amazon. This will also sound a lot better than the built in one too. Good luck

Acer aspire 5735 mic problem

Go to control panel and sound devices and unmute the mic under record options. To avoid feed back use headphones or mute the mic in the play back option. Audacity is a good open source application to use to record on your PC.

Lenovo G3000 38Q - built-in mic not working under Windows XP but built=in speakers are working fine. How do i solve

I believe the problem is that your mic isn't working properly so follow these instructions:

1: Go to control panel and click on "sound"
2: When the sound window opens click on "recording" you should find the built in mic there in the dialog.
3: Click on your built in mic and click on configure.
4: Then, click on "levels" and set the microphone level to 50 and the microphone boost to +20.0dB

If that doesn't work try doing a system restore.Or you could try restoring the defaults on the sound pref.

Headset and inbuilt speaker works at same time

Can you not just disable the built-in speakers in control panel while you're chatting on the mic?

Does she have a microphone plugged in? I dont think the 6400 has a built in mic.

If you're sure your mic works then open the sound mixer (click the speaker icon by the time in the lower right) and click "options" then "properties" and select recording. Click ok. Make sure "microphone" is selected.

Hope this helps!
