First thing is first, there should be 3 audio jack inputs. Line in, Line out and Mic. Make sure you are plugged into the Mic input.

Next if you are running windows XP check to make sure the Microphone volume is not muted and turned up. Do this by going to control panel --> Sound and Audio Devices --> volume tab --> Advanced button. The Microphone volume should be there if not select file --> properties and make sure microphone is checked. It should then appear on the volume controls.

This should take care of it if not what program are you using the mic with?

    Control Panel--> Sound-->Recording Tab-->Select microphone-->Properties Button-->

    At the bottom of the general tab device usage should say enable
    On the levels tab adjust the desired levels for the microphone.

You can go into the properties of the microphone and disable or fine tune to eliminate the feedback. If all else fails reinstall the driver.
Good first step.

Skype not working


Sir,

Click this link for more information........

http://support.skype.com/index.php?_a=knowledgebase&_j=questiondetails&_i=35

Also Check........


On a PC with external speakers and also a headset with microphone. Windows XP is configured so that standard audio are external speakers and standard microphone is the headset. Skype is configured to use the headset for audio in and out.

This way one can listen to sound from the PC and from MP3 players through external speakers and if there is a call to make or take, this is going through the headset.

But now there is the problem that the noise level for the headset is too low. Increasing volume has no effect on the headset, it only affects the external speaker's volume.

Now the solution: Going to the control panel and opening the sound setting, go to the audio tab. The external speakers are selected as default. Just temporarily select the headset and then click on volume just below. You can now set the volume for the headset, click OK and click cancel (!!!) on the sound control dialog box. This way the external speakers remain as default output.



Skype-->Tools -> Options -->Sound Devices-->audio device/USB/etc Audio Device (do NOT use windows default device)
You can also tick the ring pc speaker check box as this is a good backup to alert you even
if the main speakers are off or turned down.

Windows:
Start-->Control panel-->Sound and Audio devices
On the audio tab set the default playback device to your main soundcard(AC97/Audio-chip/add-on-adapter), etc.
Your installed audio device must be present there.
If not, reinstall audio device


thanks
good luck

Audio driver is working properly but mic is not working.....using lenovo g430 3000


Hello,
If the audio driver is working properly but the microphone isn't, ensure that: 1(a). The microphone is not muted.On Windows XP, go to start, run and type sndvol32 and press enter button to launch the Windows Sound Volume Management Panel. Under the Microphone volume control, uncheck "mute" box.This should make your microphone functional again. (b). The wrong microphone may be selected, esp. if your sound-card has an external port for microphones.To rectify the problem, use 1(a) as illustrated above, go to File>Advanced Controls and select Input Devices.Under the Microphone advanced settings, you'll see MIC1 Select and MIC2 Select. Switch the selection as appropriate until it works. 2. If the audio driver has it's own Sound management Panel, e.g that of Realtek, open it's sound control panel and disable all microphone effects that may be enabled. 3. Ensure that sound acceleration is maximum. Open the DirectX Diagnostics Engine by going to Start>Run> and type dxdiag and press enter button.When the window opens, click the Sound tab and slide the Sound acceleration bar to maximum.
I hope my solutions work.Have a good day.

Very bad echo, on my NEW Acer laptop 8730G-6945


I had this problem for months - I finally figured it out on my own...

Go to your RealTek HD Audio Manager (this is either a red speaker icon in the bottom right hand corner or if you go to 'control panel, sounds speak and audio devices, realtek hd sound effect manager)

once you have the window open, under 'sound effect, go to environment and to the right of the drop down menu, click 'RESET'.

After months of trying to fix this issue, this fixed it for me!!! I hope it does for you too!

Rear audio does not work


Hi the solution for the rear audio do not work is cold solder connection to the mother board or the banana plug female connector. You have to remove the mother board because you don have no access to re solder the the frame cover that area. If the female banana pug connector is the problem the parts is available at radio shack. Before you do all of what I mentioned first you have to confirm by going to control panel click sounds and audio devices and watch the screen and speaker will gray out if the speaker is un plug or not detected. If your PC use Realtek audio device on the control panel click the sound effect manager and click the speaker test tab and perform speaker test. Then if the test fail perform mother board repair. Hope this info might help you solve your PC rear sound problem.

How to turn-on/function mic in my acer aspire one pc notebook?


To test the microphone, click "start" button, then "Control Panel", then "Sounds and Audio Devices". On the popup window that opens, click on the "Voice" tab, then click on the button that says "Test Hardware". After several seconds this will bring up a test program that will show a noise level meter when you're speaking into the microphone. (The default device listed under voice recording should be "Realtek HD Audio Input".)
