My microphone on my acer aspire one isnt working

Whenever I record stuff on my webcam, there is no sound. I know it's not a volume issue cause volume works on other things like youtube and music. How can I fix my microphone? I saw your answer to someone else's question, but I didn't know where the "my computer" button was. Thanks! My Aspire One (Linux version)'s internal mic doesn't work with the build-in video recording program. I also tried an external mic. It also doesn't work...

    I HAVE A MICROPHONE PROBLEM AS WELL.


    I recently bought from amazon a pink acer one. 160hd,1gig ram and xp built in.


    Before this I bought a white Acer one...same specs...160, 1 gig xp.  ..but everything worked just well out of box.



    Difference I noticed was the BIOS...my white acer one uses the 3301 version while the pink acer uses the 3305 version.
    I wonder if thats the cause of the mic not working correctly.



    Heres what i tried...
    I went to acer website...downloaded the audio driver...installed it.
    Didnt restart it...tried my skype again...MICROPHONE WORKED!!!
    But whats strange is when i Restart or Log Off my pc....the mic will stop working again.
    Ive tried a number of things...even uninstalled the audio drivers and reinstalled it...but still same story...MIC will work.  BUt when i log off or restart...it will not work again.


    Which leads me to believe that its a software issue.  cause the mic is working when i install the driver.


    ANYONE HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.  NEED ADVICE.

  • asiianbarbii Dec 31, 2008

    I got mine for Xmas and the mic doesnt work unless i yell into. im not going to scream into my mic when im webcamming with friends and/or family. this is ridiculous!!! im PISSED at acer. u guys are rip offs and i paid MONEY for this laptop! u guys would know cuz u cheap company are just taking it from us!!!!! i better get mine fixed by ur company for FREE.ur support page system SUCKS! how do u even navigate the freakin place?!!?!? im pissed. wouldnt u think a laptop company should at least try to do something about this? wow.

    I experience the same problem... when I make a video conference on Messenger both the webcam and the mic work fine... but the problem is when I try to record video with the application that came installed in my Aspire One... just video no audio capture whatsoever,,, I also tried different settings with no success. I contacted tech support on Acer and the "solution" they gave me was to download a third party application because the application that comes with the computer does not capture audio (even though the controllers and settings include choosing wheter to capture from an internal or external mic and volume etc,) so this is weird... hope there is an update indeed that solves this soon.

This solution works for the Windows XP version. Go to msconfig.exe, then the Startup tab. UNCHECK rthdcpl and restart. Realtek driver doesn't load, but who cares...the microphone works now.

The solution is: you have to install the driver that is on the Acer FTP site. No matter that there is a newer version out on the Realtek site, just install the Acer version. It will work then.

Here is the link to the official drivers:

Hi, I bought an Acer aspire 1 2 days ago I also found the same problem but I solved this by going onto the acer homepage and selecting support, I had downloaded skype and tested my microphone and it worked and then checked this on my msn which also work what the problem is that you need to update you will see an update called communicatios suite with other updates update these on your aspire 1 please update all these with given time of 30 mins to complete. But if your wanting to use the video recorder the one problem is that acer are working on a codec update for video recorder please keep your eyes peeled for this update by checking your updates regular.


Cheers

I got my Aspire One 150 (Model ZG5, with Windows XP Home Edition installed) on Jan 16 2005, and surprisingly, the problem of this thread was still there!

I tried some solutions of this thread, but some are partially helpful, and some update file sites seem to be not working for the time I tried. Finally I found a solution on http://www.aspireoneuser.com/forum/.
(And it's also a anoying and common problem there, people are tortured by it. Not all dealers are able to handle this problem. Some local dealers even request people to send the machine back for them to analyze!)

My situation is:
1. The mic beside the webcam doesn't work. It only records very low volume noise.
2. The mic socket works fine.

The solution is basically to use a OLDER driver instead:
1. Go to http://freewarelist.net/realtek-high-definition-audio.html and download WDM_R178.exe
from one of the links. (I got mine through Software Author.)
2. Remove current Realtek High Definition Driver and restart the computer.
(I remove it through Control Panel's "Add or Remove Programs".
But I am not sure if that's because I tried install Realtek Audio v5.10.0.5628.)
3. When the system restart, it would detect the audio hardware and try to find the driver for you,
cancel it.
4. Run WDM_R178.exe to install the driver.
5. After you restart the computer, the mic beside webcam now works.
(It works better than the mic socket! ;-)

Best regards.

I too had the deaf mic problem. A mic connected to side port worked, while the mic next to the webcam was very weak. I know it worked before as I used it to make VOIP calls when i first bought the netbook. However, something happened, perhaps an application tampered with a BIOS setting(?) and the mic went unusable (very weak). I tried adjusting XP’s sound settings with no luck. I was going to download a new driver, but the 50Mbyte file gave me pause. I decided to check if there was a BIOS setting for the mic by rebooting and pressing F2. I discovered there was no setting for the microphone. However, when I finished my reboot, I discovered that I got my microphone back (the recording level was as good as a plug-in mic). Hmmm.. next time I have built-in microphone problem, I will go through this procedure again. Can ACER explain this? Do they need to update their BIOS? Mine is 3304.

I haven't got a solution only some info:

In The linux version of Acer Aspire One there seems to be a problem using both internal and external microphones with the webcam and for recording. Looks like it is a driver problem - hopefully ACER who sells computers without a working mic - solution, will have an update soon! - or else we will have to look at the linux community and hopefully find someone who can create missing driver.

It's a shame that ACER sells a product that is not really finished... Who would ever belive that in 2008 a pc with a built in webcam wouldn't have a functional microphone - internal or external.

I have found this on the iNet:

install
ucview-0.22-2.fc8.i386.rpm and
unicap-0.9.3-1.fc8.i386.rpm

Better still if the system is upgraded to fc10 with the latest alsa-drivers.

    unicap-0.9.3-1.fc8.i386.rpm

    With an experiment with another fedora 10 usb flash, I find the quality is even better with a matching alsa-driver (1.0.19), and newer unicap and ucview versions.

Hello all,

the linux webcam program doesn't record sound on the aspire one. You need to get another application to record video and sound.

If your internal mic doesn't work have a look at this thread:

I HAVE BUILTED IN MIC ON MY COMPUTER AND WHEN I GET ON MY WEBCAM I CAN HEAR THE PERSON BUT THEY CANT HEAR ME SOLVE THIS


hi,

there could be multiple causes of this problem. to fix we need to proceed step by step.

1. try another microphone - try using an external microphone and see if it works. if yes then there could be an issue with the internal hardware of the mic and to fix it you need to contact acer authorised service center.
if an external mic also does not work then please proceed to step 2
2. check the volume settings - go to control panel and then sound and audio devices. click on the audio tab. please ensure that under the sound recording section the audio driver(for acer aspire realtek mostly) should be selected.
3. go to device manager and reinstall the audio drivers.
4. if this is a recent problem that has been reported then please perform a system restore to a backdate when the mic issue was not there.

please let me know if any of this helps else we can check out further options.

Skype video using Acer Aspire Mini Laptop camera?


If you have a WEB camera you need to configure your video Webcam settings. Open Skype click on Tools - Options - Video Settings - select your Webcam model. When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.
If you still have problems with your mic. then - To test if the microphone is working, go to Start - Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and record you voice. Can you see your voice recording, the green line should vary as you speek.
If you see a flat green line, then the microphone is either faulty or the wrong microphone is selected.

My microphone on my acer aspire one isnt working


I had the same issue. This is what I found. It seems the Realtek audio and the Microsoft volume drivers are conflicting with each other. If you look at the bottom right (next to clock) you should see the usual grey speaker icon (Microsoft Master Volume controller) and you may also see a reddish speaker (Realtek audio) icon. This should indicate that both are controlling your audio.

If you click [start] - [run], type: msconfig and click [ok]. Click on [startup] tab at top. Look under startup item and uncheck: RTHDCPL then [apply], [ok] and restart your netbook. After it reboots the only audio icon that should appear is the grey speaker (microsoft master volume controller). Your mic should work now. Go to sound recorder and test. You may also need to upgrade to the lasted audio driver from the acer site but try shutting down Realtek first.

My microphone on my acer aspire one isnt working


For Windows users with AOA 150-Bb model: Download Audio_Realtek_v.5.10.0.5772 (Size: 50.5 Mb) available at ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/netbook/aspire_one_150/driver/Audio_Realtek_v.5.10.0.5772.zip Installing it solves the problem, both builtin and external mics working correctly.

On AOA 150-Ab migrated to Windows XP Professional the Driver Audio_Realtek_5.10.0.5628_XPx86 (Size: 42.6 Mb) seems that works fine.

All drivers available at http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads_gd.html by selecting different models different drivers are shown also. (AOA 150 for v5.10.0.5628, AOD for v5.10.0.5767...)

Hi Melissa,

to put that in cam microphone working, as I have an equal trade mark cam, you need to see on audio settings properties and change the "recording device" to usb device, instaid of the soundcard as is. that means that the sound recording goes to the cam's microphone.
the steps are:
1- rigth mouse click on the speaker next to the clock OPEN VOLUME CONTROL
2- OPTIONS - PROPERTIES - RECORDING
3 - in MIXER/RECORDING DEVICE (where is your soundcard's name) change to USB DEVICE and then OK
4- select MICROPHONE and the close the volume control windows
5- you can test the mic settings in messenger (any version) because of volume and to a clearest voice sound in your pc.

ATTENTION: carefull with the distance between your cam and your sound speakers because of distorcing sound and feedback

Webbcam works but no sound or microphone


First, make sure you have a webcam with a microphone, and run any test software the webcam came with to check and make sure it is *supposed* to work. Next, open SOUND PROPERTIES through the CONTROL PANEL and then from the menu go to ADVANCED and RECORDING and OKAY, to bring up a volume array that includes the control MICROPHONE. Then, dig around to make sure MICROPHONE is the input being selected for amplification, and try ADVANCED on MICROPHONE and turn on BOOST if it has this control. You can test whether all of this worked by opening SOUND RECORDER from ACCESSORIES and making a short recording of yourself cursing the machine and everyone who designs them. If it plays back normally, try your web camera again. If it still has no sound, the problem is in the settings of the web camera itself. Open whatever software it came with and check setting like MUTE and MICROPHONE VOLUME are set correctly.

Good luck...
