    I have the same problem but my OS is Vista. There is no microphone activity when I do call set-up on either Yahoo Messenger or Google talk. I have to reset my laptop in order for the microphone to work again. The output of Microphone is distorted...

Not sure why people say mic doesn't work in xp I have never had a problem. I can suggest this though. Oh the taskbar right click the speaker icon and select: Recording devices. a window will open showing all recording devices enabled. your mic may just be disabled so easy to enable it from here. Right click in the window and select show disabled devices. Now 2 things you can do here if you mic shows disabled. double click it or right click it.
Double click will open Microphone properties. Near the bottom of window will see device usage. It will probably be saying: do not use this device (disable).
Just open the drop down menu and select
Use this device (Enable)
GO THROUGH EACH TAB AT THE TOP: Listen Levels .......
I would suggest to just go to Levels and check to make sure that the Microphone is not at 0 and the same with the Microphone Boost. (if applicable) Also make sure that the speaker Icon is not x out.
Click apply then ok.
You are taken back to the recording listing. The mic should appear in bold outline with a check next to it. And once again click apply and ok. Should this not help reopen the window go to properties and click the advanced tab. Select restore default then apply and ok etc.
I hope this helps anyone having mic issues regardless version of windows from xp - 8.1

    There are many program you can use to obtain and install drivers for you, however those programs do not always give the right drives. cnet's program gives out dated Drivers repeatedly, Drivemax just throws any driver regardless that it doesn't match, at you. If you can't determine the right driver even from the part manufacture/provider then I would suggest using Slimdrivers from Slimware utilities. I have only been suing it for the past 3 years or so myself but have not run into any problems obtaining correct drivers. Let me put it this way. it scans all drivers logs into the appropriate site to obtain the updates and gives you the option to update or ignore, I've noticed over the year Microsoft fails to retrieve updates if you go through device manager.

    My compaq with vista (bought 2009) had driver problems when I first got it . tred various top programs suggested by Maximum pc and pc world. All failed. Not to mention most where only partly free. Or just scans then have to buy the programs. Slimware does have a paied for version that will automatically scan for updates but seems a waste of money to only get updates once every few months or so for drivers.

    PC manufactures fail to stay up-to-date in providing correct and most recent updates for drivers, Usually a few versions old. Slimware goes directly to the part manufacture to get the updates no searching obscure third parties sites.

    But as I stated prior in first response I gave best to check to make sure that mic settings are on and volume is up etc. Try to restore to default then if still no mic update driver(s). I have noticed that sometimes if you add an external m ic to laptop with on built-in, there can be a conflict between them. Should this be the case just go to recording device and turn one of them off.

we have to face it, the microphone feature is not working on XP. i've tried to install it a millionth times, no go. it's working very well on vista. if you want, you can just try to do dual boot. both XP and Vista in one system. just a suggestion though...

Hope this helps!
