Yahoo messenger has to be setup to use a mic. There is a process you have to go through. Click Actions, then click Call Setup.
go through the menus...

Also Window make think it's in use already. Try rebooting.

    I was rated inappropriate. I think that you must have been mistaken. I said nothing inappropriate in my response.

    Thanks. Also, If only yahoo is not seeing the mic, than it's in yahoo that you'll find the answer.

    second. rebooting solve problems because of how windows interacts with other programs. EG: not releasing resources like it should.

The microphone does not work. The webcamera function is working fine but when I went to download SKYPE, I realized that the mic was not working. Any suggestions on how to get it to?


Make sure of the following:

- The microphone is plugged in directly to the mic port either in the back of your computer or in the front (if this is available)
- Turn off any other applications that may be using the mic (yahoo messenger, Windows Live messenger, etc..)
- Go to the audio settings of the application you are using. Try to change the mic to another mic other than the default then test your settings

Vaio VGN-NW23SE no built in microphone indicator


your computer has a built monaural microphone. check your sound settings to make sure the mic is on. if the mic is on and there still isn't any sound on the other end then you might try an external mic. they work better as far as quality anyway.

Microphone input on Dell Inspiron B130 doesn't work


Your jack may have been damaged, or the apple mic may not be compatible. Purchase another pc compatible mic to check. Or you could try a multimedia headset with mic that plugs into your usb port. Take a look at RadioShack for headsets, I saw one in a store near me. and they should have them online.

How increase my mic volume


a) to hell with calling india, they are as dumb as bush is.
b) click start > accessories > entertainment > volume controls. when the volume controls open, click on file (drop down menu) then select recording, then click ok. when the recording volume controls come up. select microphone as the default recording device, and make sure the mute box is not checked. slide the volume control slider most of the way up.
c) if you are using yahoo's call-out, run the audio wizard in yahoo messenger before making call.
d) plug your microphone into other 3.5 mm jacks on computer, and use window's sound recorder to see if the computer is picking up audio through the mic.
e) make sure your microphone's mute switch is not turned on (if applicable).

My computer is not detecting microphone when making internet phone calls.


Troubleshooting - Can't get voice chat to work.
Here are a few things you should know and check for to get the voice chat to work. · Firewalls - the voice chat feature may not work well behind company firewalls. Even though you can get other features of Yahoo! Messenger to work, the voice chat feature uses separate technology and may not work as well.
· Check connection - When you enter into a voice chat with friends, each participant should take turns trying to press and hold down the Press to Talk button. Everyone else should see their name turn red when they do that. If you see their names turn red, but don't hear anything, it may be a microphone / speaker problem, or it may be that we have more bugs that we need to fix. If you don't see their name turn red, you are probably having connection problems and that's why it's not working.
· Get the latest version - Please make sure that everyone who is using the voice chat feature has the latest version.
· Check mic and speakers - Check that your microphone works and that your speakers are turned on. Here's how:
* make sure the mic is plugged in correctly.
* adjust the mic properties.
- go to the control panel (start button -- settings -- control panel)
- click on the multimedia icon
- you should see a tab for audio
- make sure that the recording volume is set high.
* you can test your mic. by doing the following.
- Click the Windows Start button, then go to Programs, then Accessories, then Multimedia, then click on Sound Recorder
- A new window called Sound Recorder will pop up. Click on the record button (a red circle), then say a few words, then click the stop button (black square).
- Click the play button (black triangle).
If you can hear yourself fine, then your microphone is okay. If you can't hear your voice using Sound Recorder, the voice chat should not work either.

Not able to speak with mic while using messengers


when in yahoo messenger go to actions then call setup, this will set your microphone up within messenger and let you use it. You may need to try all three types of microphone on the drop down list in messenger to set yours up correctly.
