Please confirm first that you plug mic jack in right socket-open volume control and check mic not in -mute--and fader in up position

My hp pavilion dv6000 speakers and mic are not functioning even headset


Have you tried installing the correct sound drivers? If not, go to:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=3224050&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=1842153

Then select your current operating system and select your sound drivers. If that does not work, it might be the speakers and mic connector aren't connected properly onto your board, your speakers and mic are faulty or your on-board sound is completely faulty. In that case take it to your nearest Laptop Repair Shop. If its under warranty, take it back to the shop you bought it.

My mic is not working on my laotop,vista home premium


you do not need to uninstall any driver..i had the same problem and i just bought a new headset wid a mic so here's what probably your problem is...especially those who can't seem to uninstall their driver..
1. right click on the speaker icon and go to recording devices 2. select any of the microphones in the list 3. click on properties 4. go to the levels tab 5. unmute your microphone and voila..microphone works :)

Logitech headset, new vista operating system


either the headset is not supported by Vista, or you need to right click on both speaker icons, normally coloured red and black and in the properties you need to see if your headset is listed as one of the microphone input devices, if you need to make the Logitech headset the default mic and not the windows generic mic. If you do not see it in the properties then it may not be recognised by Vista.

Head set problem with vista


you will need to go into the sound manager in control panel and make sure that the external mic is enabled as the default use and ensure in the sound settings that the mic is not muted, this is normally done by right clicking the speaker icon in the taskbar and selecting options and see if the mic is muted or not in the properties

Cant talk


Try going to Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices Click on Voice Tab and make sure the proper device is selected. Click on Volume and make sure levels are appropriate. Lastly, click on Test Hardware and wait until you can speak into the mic to see the voice levels. If you can see the voice levels, then your mic probably works and it is just an issue of configing the COD settings. goodl luck
