Re: sound card for acer aspire 5315-2153
Go to your speaker icon on the desktop, double click it to bring up the mixer. Your Mic is muted by default. Just take the tick out of the box and you should be away.
If your running Vista, then goto Start-Settings-Control Panel-Sound
You should find the settings box for your microhone there. If not, then do the same procedure as for XP, but only click the speaker icon once and select mixer.

You need to check the record settings and make sure the mic is not muted or turned down to low. Click START, CONTROL PANEL, then SOUND icon. Click the AUDIO tab up top. Make sure that your sound card is selected in the drop down menu under Sound Recording. Now click VOLUME tab. A new window will open up. Click OPTIONS then PROPERTIES. Make sure you have a check by the MIC and click OK. In the Recording Control window, turn the level up for Microphone and make sure it is not muted. Let me know what happens.
it sounds like you might have an old driver with your computer or possibly a progam running in the program is not allowing the computer to run fast enough to play the music. also try disabling if you have, antivirus programs or anti spyware programs.
have you set your mic with your messaging program
if so then continue with instructions below
if you have not then let me know what messaging program
control panel click icon for sound effect manager
then in sound effect environment should say none
then mixer and if dot in mic is a grey colour then click
should be yellowy colour
in 3d audio put check in
let me know if this has helped if not then we'll need to try something else
restart system and try sound again

You did great troubleshooting for your laptop. If the sound is fine and good for the headset, your sound card is probably not the problem. The driver aspect, should not be the problem either if it works with your headset. So herein lies the dilemma...the problem is most likely due to some physical componenent between the built-in mike and the computer case itself. You should take it to a laptop repair shop and see what they can do. It has nothing to do with the software or the sound card. It is the physical component of the built-in mike and speakers. Get that checked out and you should be good to go!
