When you plug in the microphone make sure the output settings are set to recognize it. To accomplish this go to settings>sound>output and make sure your microphone is selected.

It needs to be selected as the recording device instead of your inbuilt one but as you dont state important info i need to tell you how. I will leave it for you to figure out, as i see it if you cant be bothered, why should i?

When i plug my external microphone into the 3.5mm jack it doesnt work


First you need to check that the microphone works by plugging it in something else. If that works, go to Control Panel - Sounds and check that the mixer unit has microphone enabled. If it is, then the socket is faulty.

Also make sure you are putting in the microphone socket and not the earphones or auxiliary in socket.

Microphone not working


Try an external one. A set of ear/head phones work well. That will tell you if your system is not set up correctly or your internal mic is at fault.

MY MICROPHONE DOESNT WORK


Go to Hardware and Sound in Control Panel, choose Manage Audio Devices, select Recording, click on Microphone and test the microphone built into your computer. If the results are unsatisfactory, buy an external (USB) microphone and plug it in.

Internal microphone not working on Gateway M-6843


First check the settings under Sound Settings of the Realtek HD sound Manager. If everything looks ok and it works with external microphone, then the problem could be Hardware problem which won't be fixed unless the motherboard is replaced.

In the meantime, I would also suggest you to uninstall and re-install the sound driver. By the way, what's the operating system installed on your laptop?.. Hope this helps.

Let me know if you need further help..

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
