You may have to enable it in your BIOS under INTERGRATED PERIFERALS that should do the trick. I'm assuming its a laptop you are having problems with? And your running Vista? You should check if the correct drivers are installed for the microphone and if it comes up in your device manager. hope this helps

External mic wont work


The A/V out jack is for output from the camera, not input to the camera. The camera has no way to accept sound from another device. You can record onto another device and then combine the soundtracks using video editing software on a computer, or even completely replace the camera's audio track. However this has to be done on a computer, not in the camera.

How do you turn on the internal mic


Many portable computers no longer include a built-in Condenser Microphone (Mic) in their standard specification, even if a Mic seems to be present (a small hole with an image of a microphone or "Mic" beside it normally sited on the upper part of the screen's plastic frame or occasionally on the Control Panel at the foot of the screen, often what seems to be the Mic is actually just a redundant, optional extra facility under which a MIc could be added by the manufacturer if the specification of the computer required one.

Since many computer-based activities that require Mics, such as Conference Calling, Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP - voice calls over the internet) Telephony, Gaming, Skype Internet calls (VOIP calls + Webcam), E-Mail Account Voice Calls, Voice Messaging, Karaoke, Music Recording, etc. also tend to require earphones/headphones as well as Mics, a consensus has built around a preference for dedicated headsets with combined Mic and Headphones functions.

To establish whether a built-in Condenser Mic is specified for and installed in this computer (assuming this computer runs a Windows Operating System):

Start -> Accessories -> Entertainment -> Volume Control -> Options -> Properties -> scroll down through the audio-related device list to find "Mic" -> tick "Mic" -> OK -> untick "Mute" at the foot of the "Mic" Panel -> Close Volume Control -> Start -> Accessories -> Entertainment -> Sound Recorder -> click the button with red dot on it to start recording sound via the built-in Condenser Mic -> Speak, clap or generate sounds near the computer -> if a Mic were installed the waveform in the center of the Sound Recorder box would modulate to reflect the sounds you are making -> if no sound registers during test recording, then check for a power up/mute Mic switch on the front or sides of the computer or on the Control Panel or by using a Function Key to toggles the Mic on and off (press and hold Fn + the relevant Audio Input/Mic Function [F+number] key), then repeat the above test recording procedure with another set of sounds.

If any of the devices, switches, Function keys or tools mentioned above is missing or inaccessible on this computer, then the probability is that no built-in Mic is specified for or installed on it.

In any event, in terms of convenience, ease of use, comfort, posture and both inbound and outbound sound quality, by far the best device for a Conference Call is a dedicated headset (see examples and a potential source below):

I have a gxl 2200 mic and my computer acknowledges the mic but i cant record anything because when i play it back there is no sound


You'll need a phantom power source, like an interface or mixer. Otherwise, the mic is likely in need of repair.

Acer 5732z has a webcam but there is no built-in mic, you need to use the external mic connector (pink/red).

Acer aspire 5920 running vista has built in mic not working


Hey,

It is all because the Microphone is not set as a default device to start recording.

Its like your computer has no device for recording even if the computer has connected with Mic.

Just change the settings and enjoy..!!!

Acknowledging Microphone


Sounds like the mic is bad. The only way to confirm this is to plug a different mic into the computer and see if that works. If the second mic gives no sound then the computer may have an issue. Hope this helps.
