SOURCE: GE PC Microphone with detachable laptop mic - does not work

Go to your default settings menu at the very top of the menu in the all programs. Check in there and make sure that your default recording device is the GE Microphone, if it is not, make that the default.

SOURCE: GE PC Microphone 98950 do not work

I had this problem. Found out that I had neglected to plug the little detachable mic. I thought the little thing was only for plugging into the laptop, but come to find it, it is the mic and is plugged into the stand. LOL. Hope this helps someone.

Hi,my built in microphone not working ,on laptop aspire 6930g can you help me,i am not very good with computer


I think you are using Windows XP.
Go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Volume Control
See if there is slider for Microphone & Mute button.
If it is not then go to Options - Properties in Volume Control Menu
Make a check mark against Microphone. Say OK.
You will find the Microphone slider & Mute button.
Remove the check mark against Mute if it is there & advance the Microphone slider control to your required level. Your microphone is ready for use.

When calling,i can hear the person i called but they cant hear me


Hi..

Looks like problem is on your side. This is may due to a faulty microphone on your phone or Mic is set to be on mute.

1. Please check that nothing is clotted on Microphone. This is a small hole on bottom side of your phone.
2. Please check that other party can hear you when you're using a Hands-free / Bluetooth ear phones with mic on it. If they can hear you, when you use a hands-free, problem is with your phone's on-board microphone.
3. You can also check that, while on a call, your mic is not set on Mute. This can be done as on call, select Options , look for Mute / Unmute. If Unmute is present, select it unmute the mic.
4. You can use Mute button Provided on the top side of the phone. While on the call, press this button to Mute / Unmute the mic. If the mic is set to Mute mode, other party won't hear any sound from you.


Hope this will solve the issue.

Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same applies for Internal mic.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

My built in mic is not working properly,when I call somebody hear me but I don't hear him!


If the other person can hear you then YOUR microphone is working fine.
The reason may be that his microphone is faulty (solution below)
Otherwise:
  1. Make sure the volume is turned up on your speakers (and if using external speakers they are plugged in / turned on) . To increase volume go to Control Panel, Sounds & Audio Devices and adjust the slider on "Device Volume" . Also click on "Loudspeaker Volume" and adjust the sliders there as necessary.
  2. Can you hear other sounds (like playing music or videos)? If yes then you need to adjust the audio settings for your calling program (skype or whatever). Launch the appropriate program Click on Tools and ' test audio properties' on the program tool-bar. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  3. Try plugging in headphones and see if you can hear better on them.

Good Evening Norton Brent:

Check to be sure that you have not pressed a mute button.

Download the latest drivers for your specific microphone.

Uninstall and reinstall the software for your microphone (I don't know the brand or whether it came with the computer or not. Therefore, I can only offer general solutions.

But, I hope that this has be of assistance to you.
