Depends on what Operating System you have; Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 (or 8.1). Also, what HP laptop do you have? does it have a built-in microphone?

My Mic is on all the time it is also coming through the speakers so when i turn external speakers on there is an huge feedback


See Adjust volume below



To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. Instructions are for Windows XP but are similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES



Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Ensure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing window.


Click VOLUME button in SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. The same applies to 'Internal MIC' if you are using a laptop with built in microphone - this must be enabled/ disabled separately to the external MIC.



To adjust audio volume.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.



You can also put a check mark in the box to show the volume control icon on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to in future

My built in mic is not working properly,when I call somebody hear me but I don't hear him!


If the other person can hear you then YOUR microphone is working fine.
The reason may be that his microphone is faulty (solution below)
Otherwise:
  1. Make sure the volume is turned up on your speakers (and if using external speakers they are plugged in / turned on) . To increase volume go to Control Panel, Sounds & Audio Devices and adjust the slider on "Device Volume" . Also click on "Loudspeaker Volume" and adjust the sliders there as necessary.
  2. Can you hear other sounds (like playing music or videos)? If yes then you need to adjust the audio settings for your calling program (skype or whatever). Launch the appropriate program Click on Tools and ' test audio properties' on the program tool-bar. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  3. Try plugging in headphones and see if you can hear better on them.

Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In the Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate the SOUND PLAYBACK box and click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a tick (check-mark) in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Also make sure that the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here you need to SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK.


That should be it.

My laptops (toshiba with windows 7) built in microphone won't work. I'm trying to call a friend through Windows Messenger and I can hear her but she can't hear me. Any ideas on what to do?


Hello, maybe the volume control for mic (in Windows) is turned down or set to 'mute' I only know where to find it in XP, which is Start > Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control
and you want to view the 'advanced' controls.
Hope you can relate this to your Windows 7 system.

regards,

When i skype with my granddaughter, i can hear her, but she cant hear me


It must be with your mic or with your computer's sound settings or with your skype sound settings. First check your Microphone, you can record something using the Windows (if your o.s. is windows xp or vista, or etc..etc..) built-in Sound Recorder.

Open your computer's sound settings and make sure it's default recording device is Microphone and the volume is turned up.

Open the skype, click "Tools", then "Options" and again click" "Audio Settings" and check the mic volume, if possible uncheck the "Automatically adjust the microphone settings" and turn the slider to the right. Save the changes you've made and try again.

If the problem persists, let me know.


Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
