It sounds like the Hard Drive has failed. You an get a new drive for $30 from Amazon or BestBuy. Replace the hard drive and install an Operating system of choice. The Old drive may not be accessible, thus be prepared to accept the loss of data as all may be lost.

You seem to have isolated the problem to the microphone. If the opening to the microphone is not blocked by dust or lint or some other substance then the microphone itself will need to be replaced. You might be able to verify the function of the microphone with an oscilloscope or volt meter, or simply replace it. Sorry there is not an easier solution.

The problem with your Netbook seems to be that you have turned "NUMBER LOCK" or "NUM LOCK" on. This causes some of the letter keys, e.g U,I,O,J,K,L,M to be printed as numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5,6.

To turn this off, hold down the "FN" key (near the bottom left of the keypad) and then press "F11" and then release both keys.

Please try this and post back if you need further assistance.

What netbook is it?

Samsung... | Answered on Oct 31, 2013

If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Use the repair option to reinstall Windows 7. This should load on top without wiping system.

Download this tool and make a USB Windows 7 Installation drive.

I personally use AVG rescue disk and have successfully installed it onto a USB stick using WinSetupFromUSB http://code.google.com/p/winsetupfromusb/downloads/list
use the PartedMagic/Ubuntu Desktop Variants /Other G4D comp. ISO option.

Sorry to half answer your question, I have tried to run the Avira rescue cd with this method and not been successful.

Hope that helps
