How do you turn on the internal mic


Many portable computers no longer include a built-in Condenser Microphone (Mic) in their standard specification, even if a Mic seems to be present (a small hole with an image of a microphone or "Mic" beside it normally sited on the upper part of the screen's plastic frame or occasionally on the Control Panel at the foot of the screen, often what seems to be the Mic is actually just a redundant, optional extra facility under which a MIc could be added by the manufacturer if the specification of the computer required one.

Since many computer-based activities that require Mics, such as Conference Calling, Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP - voice calls over the internet) Telephony, Gaming, Skype Internet calls (VOIP calls + Webcam), E-Mail Account Voice Calls, Voice Messaging, Karaoke, Music Recording, etc. also tend to require earphones/headphones as well as Mics, a consensus has built around a preference for dedicated headsets with combined Mic and Headphones functions.

To establish whether a built-in Condenser Mic is specified for and installed in this computer (assuming this computer runs a Windows Operating System):

Start -> Accessories -> Entertainment -> Volume Control -> Options -> Properties -> scroll down through the audio-related device list to find "Mic" -> tick "Mic" -> OK -> untick "Mute" at the foot of the "Mic" Panel -> Close Volume Control -> Start -> Accessories -> Entertainment -> Sound Recorder -> click the button with red dot on it to start recording sound via the built-in Condenser Mic -> Speak, clap or generate sounds near the computer -> if a Mic were installed the waveform in the center of the Sound Recorder box would modulate to reflect the sounds you are making -> if no sound registers during test recording, then check for a power up/mute Mic switch on the front or sides of the computer or on the Control Panel or by using a Function Key to toggles the Mic on and off (press and hold Fn + the relevant Audio Input/Mic Function [F+number] key), then repeat the above test recording procedure with another set of sounds.

If any of the devices, switches, Function keys or tools mentioned above is missing or inaccessible on this computer, then the probability is that no built-in Mic is specified for or installed on it.

In any event, in terms of convenience, ease of use, comfort, posture and both inbound and outbound sound quality, by far the best device for a Conference Call is a dedicated headset (see examples and a potential source below):

I have just brought a Logitec Webcam C120 and cannot get any sound. Do I have to get a microphone? When I do the sound test can't get any recording back.


Hi lynne_law ,

Many people mistakenly think that webcam can be used for audio as well as video transmission.

  1. Webcams don't usually come with microphones , therefore you would require a separate microphone for your voice recordings and voice chats.
  2. I would suggest you get a headset which would have the microphone option as well , or you can get a hand held mic.
  3. Once you get a new mic, you need to connect it to your computer by plugging in the mic in the appropriate slot , and by default the mic should work.
  4. If it does not work , you just need to change the microphone settings using the volume control option or audio settings via control panel.
Hope this helps ... ) Your feedback would be appreciated.

My mircophone is not working on my MSI laptop


Hello Freshnoble, hi! try first the sound recorder program, for testing purposes, if you are using XP, it goes, start, all programs, accessories, entertainment, sound recorder. Shout on the mic, you should see wave pattern on the sound recorder program. if not. the problem can be hardware and/or software. If its the hardware, check the microphone, is the mic built-in or are you using an external mic? if built in, try to enable first the microphone, right click the speaker on the lower right side of windows, select adjust audio properties, sound, at this point you should see the sound recorder device, select mic volume and adjust it all the way. test again the sound recorder. If you did not reach this point, there is some thing wrong with the device driver, load the sound driver first and test the mic again.

Foot pedal won't work with hands free microphone


The 3750 won't let you control the telephone record jack. The only way you can get a mic to work using the Tel Rec jack is by pressing and holding the 'Tel Rec' button for about 1 second. But this isn't compatible with the hands-free operation.

If you're looking to do hands-free recording, it uses the built-in conference mic. Press and hold the 'Conf Rec' button for about a second and it should start recording. This built-in mic is located on the right-hand side of the machine near the front by the headset jack.

If you want to control the machine via a foot control while in Conference Record mode, you'll have to change the 'Foot Control Dictate' setting in the menu. Here's how:

1) Press and hold the 'Erase' & 'Search' buttons for about 5 seconds until the menu appears.

2) Scroll through the options until you get to 'Foot Control Dictate' and set this to 'Yes'.

3) Press 'Stop' to exit the menu.

4) Press the 'Conf Rec' button to enter record mode.

Now you should be able to control the start/stop of the record function via the foot control.

Hope this helps...

Purchased a used Zen "M"


Dear Larr

If you want store music or songs then u can use the usb cable, but if u want to store a voice or sound through mic then you should buy a mic that has sound cancellation, but it will not entirely cancell the background music, since the recording capacity is not up to the mark in zen.

Thankyou
