Question about Apple iBook G4 Mac Notebook
Your product specs can be found here
below under TECHNICAL SPECS in audio you can see that you system is supposed to come with a built in mic.
go into system preferences, (sound panel in the OS settings, select input device, input levels), see if you get any feed back from input level, see it's also muted or turned all the way down and adjust as needed
if no feedback seen on input level check if the mic holes have any dust in them, clear the dust as needed.
do you remember ever using your mic? where do you need the mic to be activated, see if there's any configuration that you need to do under tools or options for that application
has your computer ever being disassambled?, any repairs? that may have cause the mic to be disconnected internally (if you don't see any input level feed back when talking close to the mic openings and if it's not muted)?
there's a chance that there's a hardware problem, I've heard about wiring wear out causing mic to stop functioning,
a last thing you want to try is a type of hard reset (see here), this is a last resort. if this does not work, it's fair to assume that you have a hardware problem and if there's no warranty on the ibook you may want to just simply get a usb handset (mic and head piece) for your mic needs..
