Verify the microphone is not muted in your audio settings.

Windows 7:
Right-click the speaker icon in the system tray in the bottom right corner of your screen.
If you see a green check mark next to a microphone then Windows is recognizing the mic.

Next:
Double-click the microphone
Click the Levels tab
Verify the Speaker icon does not have a red circle with a line through it(indicates it is muted).

Check the button on microphone if it is on or off

Make sure it is plugged in RED PORT in laptop

Go to Sound recorder and try to record sound and play back

If issue is still persisting, you can check the same issue with another mic and decide it finally.

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.

Recording to itunes program is muffled and unclear and instead my voice and conversations while i am recording is heard


Sounds like the Record Input is picking the computer's microphone instead of the iT Turntable Source.

On your computer, select Start->Settings->Control Panel
Pick the "Sound" panel item, and bring up the "Sound and Audio Device Properties" dialog.

Across the top of this dialog, there should be several tabs. Pick the one marked "Audio", and there should be a pull-down menu in the middle to select the default Record Device.

Pick the device that matches your USB Turntable device, and try again.

If this helps, please be sure to hit the "thumbs-up" for me.

If not, post a comment back and I'll see what I can do!

Hi. Your computer does have an onboard, built-in microphone and speakers. I do not know what type of operating system you have (please provide that) but if you or anyone did a fresh install of an operating system, the drivers for the Acer machine may not have been installed. If this is the case, you can find the drivers here: http://www.vistaxpdrivers.com/download-acer-aspire-5338-windows-vista-drivers.html

If that is not the problem, it may be that the speakers are simply turned off in "control panel > sounds and audio devices". If you know how to check this, you should. If not, I'll help if you want. See ya.

The microphone may not work because of a hardware or configuration problem. To determine if it's a hardware problem, test the microphone in Sound Recorder.

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
The microphone may also be defective. To test this, try the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.
Multimedia Keyboards:
A multimedia keyboard is a keyboard that has a button which can automatically control your computer volume. If you have a multimedia keyboard installed, the software for the multimedia keyboard may need to be uninstalled in order for the camera's microphone to work properly in Windows. Please contact Logitech with the make and model of the multimedia keyboard that is causing the problem. While we will not be able to assist you other than to advise to uninstall the keyboard software, it will help us determine the root cause of the incompatibility.
