My new Toshiba has a great sound system but the mic is bad.

My new Toshiba has a great sound system but the quality of the sound from the microphone is bad, when I use skype. It is tinny, sometimes has an echo and gets garbled. Are there settings to fix that? I really don't want to send it in for repairs.

Mic sound muffled static


Buy a better mic! This question reminds me of the musicians who invest in a nice JBL public address system but then use Radio Shack microphones. A good quality mic, not GREAT but just good will cost you a minimum of $100. Quit playing with toys and invest in real recording gear. Computers and hard drive recorders can easily record CD quality audio, and-so why would you use a $70 mic?

Friends say When i speak sounds like Static any 1 know how to change setting or find it in computer. Im using Satellite Fusion


The external microphone itself could be the culprit, or its connection to the 3.5mm port could be flaky. To test the theory do this:

1 Connect an external microphone to the computer.

2 Click Start, point to All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, then click Sound Recorder.

3 Click the Record button and speak normally into the microphone.

>>>> WIGGLE THE CONNECTION AT THE LAPTOP OR FLEX THE MIC CABLE WHILE RECORDING. Maybe even narrate what you are doing while you record your voice. "Flexing cable near mic, now near plug..." <<<<

NOTE: You can only record 60 seconds at a time.

4 When you have finished recording, click the Stop button.

5 To hear what you just recorded, click the Play button.
6 To save the file, select Save from the File menu.

>>>> If you hear crackling in the playback that correlates with your handling of the cable then bad seating or a bad cable are the problem. <<<<


Adjusting recording quality

The better the quality of the recording, the more disk space the sound file requires. Experiment to find a balance that fits your needs.

1 Open Sound Recorder, if necessary (click Start, point to All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, then click Sound Recorder).

2 In the Sound Recorder window, click Edit, then click Audio Properties.

3 In the Audio Properties window, adjust the Sound Playback quality and volume, and the Sound Recording volume.

4 Click OK.


Your new settings take effect the next time you record.

I have a Toshiba Satellite P205d-S7438 laptop. I am trying to determine if I have an internal microphone. On the front of the computer, there are connections for a microphone and headset.


sorry, accourding to the laptop specs found here
you do have built in speakers but no mic!
you need to get mic and headphones or a headset to say chat with sound through your mic using msn messenger or skype.

I know is not the answer expected, my apologies!

I'm really at my wits end with my Rode NT1 A microphone. I bought one of these microphones from Musicians Friends and when I got it it was Dead On Arrival. no sound at all...yea I plugged it into a phantom...


If you are satisfied with Shure products I would recommend that you check out their condenser microphones.All condensers are more fragile than other microphones. Get someone to look at your Rode first in case it is not trashed and can be fixed as they are good mikes. AKG is another brand I would recommend.

Bad microphone reverb


Ok, i can understand that, I play Eve-Online myself.

If you are using onboard sound, depending on the manufacturer of the bits and pieces that make up the sound portion of the motherboard, will greatly effect the sound quality you get. Also, making sure the microphone is not too close or too far is a big key to it also.

I have found that running whatever chat program that I use at the time to chat with my alliance friends online with, opening an advanced window with sound controlling properties, like you would on the older stereo systems, you have to sometimes tweak the bars a little on each setting to get the right quality.

Also, by chance, if you are spending less than 25$ US standard dollars on a microphone headset unit, you are just getting what you pay for. Sasd to say, but they dont put a whole lot of effort into making good mic's for cheap. Use Playtronics, for one, but expect to spend roughly between 50 to 75 dolalrs on the headset to get a decent quality. For my gaming purposes, i spent 124.99 on mine, but thats because i occasionally use them for other software.

Sound Input problems


What you have to do is go to your speaker volume icon in the taskbar, right click and go to open volume control and click mute microphone. If mic does not show click Advanced. This dissables the onboard mic but allows the use of your external microphone, rectifying the tinny sound.
