You do not say what sort of mic you have - if its a built in laptop mic, a standalone mic or one built into the webcam.
It would also be useful to know what your OS is and what chat program you want to use the mic in
However we can generalise and hopefully put you on the right track

Have you set the mic you wish to use with your webcam as Default ?

XP
Plug in your webcam or headset or mic you wish to use with your webcam
Control Panel (Classic View)
Open 'Sounds and Audio Devices' folder and click on the 'Volume' tab - make sure the speakers are not muted, open 'Speaker volume' and set the sliders toward the upper end.
Open 'Audio' tab - make your preferred mic the default device in the 'Sound recording window'
Open 'Volume' below the window to ensure the mic is not muted
Click 'Apply' and 'OK'
Restart your computer
Configure the webcam / mic to your chat program

VISTA
Plug in your webcam or headset or mic you wish to use with your webcam
TEST SPEAKERS
Right click on speaker icon in System Tray or from Control Panel
Select "Playback Devices"
The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible
Right click on the volume graph and click "Test"
Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard

SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC
Click "Recording" tab.
Right click on the volume graph and select 'Show disabled devices' and 'Show disconnected devices'
To set your preferred mic as default - click the mic font to highlight and click "Properties"
In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click 'OK'
Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays

Restart computer

Configure your webcam and mic to the Chat program

Microphone not working on HP PVILION DV 40000


  1. Right-click the Sound icon c01453402.gif in the system taskbar, beside the clock. Select Recording Devices from the drop-down menu.
  2. When the Sound window opens to the Recording tab, select Microphone . The Microphone entry should say that it is working, and there should be a meter beside the entry.
  3. Tap the plastic above the display gently. The meter should respond to the sound stimulus by rising and falling.
  4. If the microphone is not working, or if the meter is not present, or does not seem to respond to sound input, try the following:
    1. Click Properties and in the Microphone Properties window, make sure the device is enabled in the Device usage drop-down menu on the General tab.
    2. Click the Levels tab and set the microphone volume to 100.
    3. Click the Advanced tab and make sure all options are selected.
    4. Click Apply and then OK . Close the windows.

I just bought a new gigaware earclip monoheadset with mic. the problum is i cant seem to get the mic working the sound works great but i just cant get that voice to work


Hello Mithmar hi, try setting the volume for your microphone, (i'm assuming you are using X P) to do this right click the speaker icon (or the mixer icon) on the lower right side of your screen, you will go to the volume controls section, goto options, then properties, select recording. check the microphone, then click apply/ok. On the mixer there is now the microphone slider. Test your microphone by loading the sound recorder program (start, all programs, accessories, entertainment, sound recorder, press the red button) then shout to the microphone, you should see wave patterns on the recorder, your microphone is working fine. at this point let me know your progress.
