Make sure you have the mic cable plugged in the right port at the back of your computer. double click on the speaker on your desk tray, lower right corner by the time-date location, the Volume Control window will open. Check if you have the Microphone column, and the Mute check box is not mark. If you can't find the Microphone column in your Volume Control window, click Options > select Properties... check the box that says Microphone... then click OK. Now you should see the Microphone column... uncheck the Mute box. Test your mic now....

    do you get sound at all, using windows or audio music or internet sound?

    check the sound card driver by going to the hardware profile in the start > control panel > system > device manager...

    make sure you don't have a yellow exclamation mark on any devices there...

My Son Bought Computer For me & Set It Up. No Instructions ARE Available. Does This Computer HAVE Hidden Microphone?

If your "computer" is what you have posted, it is not a computer at all, rather it is a monitor. Here is the manual for the monitor in question it does not have a built in microphone, however, if you were to provide me with the computer type, the computer might have one. Or, if you told me the Operating System (Windows XP / Vista / 7) I could also tell you how to find out if the computer comes with a built in microphone.

In short: What you have requested information on is not a computer, and it does not have a microphone.

I have a compaq 7500. Can you tell me where the microphone connection is. Also can microphones for this model still be purchased ?

This monitor doesn't have a speaker or microphone jack available on it.
These ports will be located on your PC generally on the back. The microphone port will be either red or salmon color and typically have a picture of a microphone by it. Also microphones use a standard port for many many years and any will work just fine typically with no special software required.
Comment back with the model of your computer and I can help you locate the port.

People are unable to hear me on Skype. The built webcam on monitor is working properly, but the mic is not.

You monitor with built-in web camera may only process the video signal through the USB only, not audio from the microphone, look for analog microphone output jack to hook it up to your PC microphone input.

Turning on Microphone of Viewsonic VX2255 LCD Display

The microphone setup should be with the communication software that you will be using such as SKYPE or OoVoo set up panel. It will not be at the monitor. I use OOVOO because I can do video call with six people at once.

Asus 19inch monitor with web cam mic not working

double click on the microphone volume thing at the bottom right of your start menu bar, that should bring up your volume levels, make sure the mic isn't muted. Also check to see if there are any microphone cables to plug into your soundcard. It's also possible it's just a webcam and doesn't have a microphone with it.

Blurry n want to know about mic

Blurry image is usually due to either a bad picture tube or failure of a part in the monitor called the flyback transformer. Both of these parts can go bad with age and use, and this is a pretty old monitor now. It is not worth trying to repair this; a new 17 or 19-inch flat screen is pretty inexpensive these days.

The microphone is wired to a connector on the back of the monitor which has a little symbol of a microphone by it. You connect this to the microphone jack on your computer. You can use the same kind of cable you would use to connect the sound output from the computer to a set of speakers. Once you plug in that cable just make sure the microphone is turned on in Windows and you're set to talk.

If this doesn't answer what you wanted to know, please add a comment with any other questions, and please take a moment to rate tis solution if it's been helpful. Thanks for using Fixya!
