Toshiba satelite isn't recognizing that the


Have you tried using a different mic? If its a cheap mic It may have very well just quit working(or never worked).
Is it a new laptop? If not, any previous issues/problems?

"Apparently" the drivers are updated? "Apparently" isn't exactly a good term to use when it comes to something like drivers. Its either: Yes, they are or No, they are not. Make sure they are first.

To test if the mic is/isn't working go to Control Panel> Sounds and Audio Devices>Advanced Button(Bring up the Mixer)>Properties>Make sure Mic is checked in the list. Go back to the mixer, and un-mute the mic and slide the volume bar all the way if it isn't already. Now talk into the mic, is it playing threw the speakers? Yes? No?

From what you've provided I would guess its just a bad/broke mic. I'd suggest investing in something better, like a headset with the mic built in(as you'll probably need one at some point anyways).

Does my computer have a built in mic?


Hi Jaygeewallac,

I tried to locate a manual for your computer to find more details - no success. (But found a lot of people having the same issue...) Regardless - I don't think that your computer is equipped with a microphone; laptops usually have a built-in one, desktops don't.
You can always try: Go to start -> All Programs -> Accessories ->
Entertainment -> Sound Recorder
and try to record something. If you were successful - your PC has a built in microphone!

However - if you want to use Skype, I strongly recommend to use a headset with a microphone. I am using this program daily and although my laptop has a mic and speakers, I always use my headset. Without it you have to stick your head to where your mic is located and turn the volume of the speakers up a lot so you are able to understand what your son is saying. Don't do it.

A USB headset costs you between 20 -50$ and you can either get it online (Newegg or Tigerdirect) or at your local RadioShack or BestBuy. I would recommend buying it locally, because in case it does not fit your head comfortably, you can exchange it very easy.
I would furthermore recommend a USB connection, because it is not as flimsy as two small audio connectors and also easier to plug in and out.

Did this informatin help you? If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I am happy to help you with whatever you want to know.

Need new / 2nd hand Toshiba satellite laptop motherboard


Hi timlondonuk,

I don't know if you've ever replaced the motherboard in a laptop, but it can be a serious chore - even damaging to the LCD connector and other devices if you're not careful. Oftentimes the cost of a replacement board is 50-75% of the cost of a new laptop, so you might consider that venue.

If you provide a model number we can help you find prices for the board.
