How to load microphone on my acer?


Not sure what you are asking.
Microphone socket is usually on the left-hand side of the laptop next to the earphone socket.
If you want to know how to turn the microphone on (as it is normally on mute), go to the control panel and pick sound icon.
You can turn on the microphone from there.

Resound hearing aid


Your laptop probably has a built in microphone. Turn the volume on the microphone down or off altogether, this should solve your problem.

How to turn microphone on


Acer laptops feature on-board microphones for sound recording purposes within Windows.
Since an internal microphone can be a very handy tool for communication and speech-to text capabilities, working without a functional mic can severely hinder work flow for many users.
If you do not have any prior knowledge of how to repair a non-functional microphone within Windows, you may feel the need to send off your Acer laptop for repair.
There is no need, because even the most novice Acer user can do it.

Go to "Start," "Control Panel," then double-click on "Add/remove Programs."
Click on the "Windows Setup" tab, "Multimedia," then select "Details."

Choose "Sound Recorder" from that screen, then click "OK."
The Sound Recorder application will begin to run. Step 4 will begin the microphone test.

Click "Record," which is the circle located on the right side of the user interface.
If you hardware device is functional, you should see the recording display begin to move.

Press "Stop," "Rewind," then "Play" to verify the audio that has been recorded.
If you are able to hear what the microphone picked up, but are having trouble hearing the microphone's input within other software, refer to the software's manual about proper configuration of the device.
If you were unable to record with your Acer microphone in Sound Recorder, continue to next Step.

Scroll your mouse over to the bottom-right corner of your computer screen and then double-click on the small speaker icon.
Slide the microphone volume slider all the way to the top and make sure that there hasn't been a mute check-box selected.
If you are still experiencing error while recording with your Acer laptop's built-in microphone, you most likely have faulty hardware that needs to be replaced by Acer directly.

How to turn speaker on acer d257


Make sure you have installed the Acer's audio driver for your model laptop. Test the audio by playing a music CD.
SKYPE MICROPHONE PROBLEM
If the person cannot hear you then, either your microphone driver not installed or not working OR the microphone is not configured in Skype.
To test your microphone then click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound recorder. Then record your voice and then play it back. If this is OK then the microphone need to be configured in Skype.
To configure the microphone - Open Skype - Tools - Options - Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.Also while you are in the Audio Settings select the your Audio card in Speakers.

Please help when I bought my HP laptop it said it had a built in web cam and microphone how do I use this


You should have an application called Acer Crystal Eye on your system for the built-in WebCam. Check the Programs list under the Start window for Acer Crystal Eye. This should turn on the camera.
For the microphone click Start>Control Panel>Sound>Recording to see if the microphone is being detected. If it is, click on the Microphone icon and turn the microphone on.
Let me know if you need a driver or have any other questions. Thanks.

Microphone connect have acer aspire travelmate


It appears that your Acer has 3 ports in the front center bottomportion of the laptop. One of them should be for plugging in an external microphone, one should be for external speakers, and one should be an input jack.http://complap.com/yahoo_site_admin/assets/images/acer-travelmate-2420-2.192120139_std.jpg
