My built-in microphone doesnt work due to important sound updates
Well, my built-in microphone was working just fine at the start. The sound was very clear. But since i download some audio updates, my microphone never worked again after that.
When i play the sounds that i recorded, its like a massive annoying continous noise and you cant record any sound properly. And when i open my sound tester, it says that the computer doesn't detect any sound. (When there is a lot of sounds around)
its very annoying. Anyways, i hope that u can try to help my with this problem. I would really appreciate it if you could.

This could be due to several reasons -
> Faulty microphone (something could be wrong with the device, or the input jack) - Try using your microphone on a friend's PC. If it is working fine, then proceed to the next line.
> Incorrectly installed sound card - Have you installed the sound card and its drivers correctly? Update your sound card's drivers, and then give it a try with the microphone.
> Go to Control Panel->Sounds and Audio Devices. Go to Audio tab, and in the Sound Recording section, check whether your sound card is selected. Click on Volume button here, and ensure that Microphone is "Selected". Do the same with the Voice tab too.
Go to start then control pannel then sounds and audio devices. Then in in the volume tab select advanced in the device volume section. When the mixer comes up go to options then properties select the recording option a recording mixer will come up make sure to check the microphone box. Raise the level in the ixer and you should be golden. If you want to hear the mic select playback mixer and raise the mic level. Hope this helps. : ]
I had this problem too. My built in mic wasnt working, but i went to the list of programs (Classic view of the start menu) and under the program folder TOSHIBA > Speech System it'll have a choice "Configure Microphone." After I went through that, it worked fine. Make sure you restart your webcam software though after you've done that if you had it open like me. Hope this works!
