Make sure your audio device is selected, the one that you are using such as a usb phone over your onboard realtek audio.

How to install a microphone in my computer for skype use?

The pink input jack is the microphone jack on most computers. The jack has 3 contacts on it One is for the microphone, one is ground and the third one is for the voltage applied to the microphone circuits. Easiest way is to get a headphone with a microphone on it . That way you won't get a squeal out of your speakers or an echo when using Skype.

When using Skype I can hear other person fine but she can barely hear me. I have tried to adjust sound on skype but it doesn't seem to make a difference

I had the same problem and I replaced and/or used "external mic for Notebook " for this purpose and everything is ok now..
pls use new mic and make a test call to SKYPE to hear your mic voice as well..

Take care and if it succeeds please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up

Hope this helps!

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)
  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



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 laptop is compaq presario cq40. my microphone is not working but i can hear the voice of the person on the other side

Firstly please check that you have pugged the microphone into the correct (red) socket.
If that is correct the problem is likely to be in the audio settings. You don't specify which operating system you are using. My answer is for Microsoft Windows XP but Vista and Windows7 will be broadly similar.
  1. Click 'start' or go to 'my computer'
  2. click on 'control panel'
  3. click 'sounds and audio devices'
  4. click 'advanced' button in the 'device volume' box. This should open a long window of audio volume controls.
  5. On the tool bar click 'options'
  6. click 'properties'
  7. There is a drop down menu with the label 'Mixer Device' - click the down arrow at the right hand end of this menu. If there is more than one device listed select 'wave device' from the list.
  8. Further down the properties window there are 2 options 'Playback' and 'Recording'. Click on 'Playback'and then look at the list of devices in the box labeled 'show the following volume controls'
  9. Make sure that there is a tick (check-mark) against microphone.
  10. click ok
  11. Now look at the devices listed in the long window of 'volume controls' make sure that there is NOT a tick (check-mark) in the 'mute' box against microphone and that the volume slider is up at or near the top of the scale.
  12. Make sure that the 'mute all' box (far left) is not checked
  13. click on the 'options' tab on the tool bar once more
  14. Click on 'Recording' and repeat steps 9 to 12
Your microphone should now be working but I assume, from your question. that you are trying to use Voice over Internet Protocol / Skype / Messenger or other chat program. If so you will now need to go into the appropriate program and test the audio properties. Exactly how you do this will vary with each different program but most have a fairly simple test wizard. With Skype the easiest way is to select the test call button.

Whistling background noise with Samson C01U USB condenser mic

Welcome to the world of STUDIO microphones. Super quality BUT you must have a studio to use them. You can't have any local speaker playing into them. You often use headphones lest your monitor speakers will feedback. At the high frequency capability of these mics, you can fry your amps with oscillations above what you can hear!

Toshiba laptop Microphone Not working or Non-existant?

Click Start/All Programs/Accessories/Sound Recorder. Click Start Recording and talk to your computer in a normal voice. When you finish click Stop Recording. Type in a file name and click save. Open the file and play it. If it works you have a built in mike, otherwise buy yourself an external, which I recommend anyway, because the built in mikes are generally not good enough for voice recognition or VOIP.

by default the playback of your voice is muted. next to your clock theres the sound speaker icon click on it, you should see microphone somewhere there, if you dont press settings from the toolbar and then properties

then on the playback make sure there is a X on microphone.

then click ok, now check is the microphone muted? unmute it and speak to the microphone you should hear your own voice played back instantly from the speakers.
