VX2255 Microphone I have just bought this screen and the inbuilt camera works but the microphone does not work. Is it a driver fault, just simply broken or I haven't done the right thing yet. How would I know

    mine worked for about 10 mins but for some reason my recorder wasnt picking up on the "sound wave bar" that displays recording fluctuations. But it was picking up sound. Then it stopped all together.

What I thought was a microphone problem turned out to be a design turd and a cable issue.
One would think that the USB connection doubles as webcam and microphone input, and the line in connection is for the speakers -- amplified or otherwise. The brainiacs at Viewsonic have designed a "line in" jack which acts as BOTH the input for the audio signal as well as feeding the microphone signal out. So you need the special cable that came with the monitor. The black jack goes into the "line in" socket behind the monitor, and the lime green one on the other end into the PC side speaker jack, and the pink one into the PC side mic-in jack.
I looked in my grab-bag of wires and things and fortunately was able to find the weird cable despite the fact I purchased the monitor more than a year ago. I never tried to use the webcam/mic feature until now.
Fortunately the tech I talked to was smart enough to realize that I was the one who should be laughing (mad) at them and not the other way around.

Solution #2 posted on Dec 15, 2009 fixed the problem. THANK YOU kbfixer !! I had to open a few moving boxes and found the cable in the original package, unopened. The other problem was getting the webcam on the monitor to pick up sound. I had to set the mic configuration WHILE running the movie application on the webcam. Otherwise, it kept resetting the mic level. Also set the DC noice cancelation on which made for a much better sound.

Turning on Microphone of Viewsonic VX2255 LCD Display


The microphone setup should be with the communication software that you will be using such as SKYPE or OoVoo set up panel. It will not be at the monitor. I use OOVOO because I can do video call with six people at once.

If it has Realtek device drivers check through that not WDM. Also, make sure you set the record settings for the mic to select it, not the play settings.

Inbuilt microphone of hp presario c700 not working


At first let me tell you should have Operating System Vista for the inbuilt mic to work to get the full performance as it has the drivers. Got to Start>All Programs>Accessories>Entertainmnet>Sound Recorder. You can check the mic is working or not.
