Well, to find out if your computer has a mic open up the audio mixer (double click the speaker in the right hand side of you screen), if you do not see your microphone, go to Options>Properties, and select "microphone", then go to options, advanced controls, under microphone, if you see a "advanced" button, click it (if you dont see it, there is no internal mic), if you see Mic2 Select, you probably have a internal mic. Another way to find out if you have a internal mic is to go to the sound recorder, and see if you can record your self, However if your going to be using skype, i recommend you get an external mic

Samsung X360 laptop - built in microphone not working

Go to your control panel and find your device panel. Then look for your sound devices. once you are in your sound panel find your built in mic, right click and click on test. If you aren't getting a response, close out this window and right click on the built in mic again, click on properties. adjust the sensitivity, and test again. play with it until you get a response. If you cant get a response at higher sensitivity you should just buy an external microphone for skyping.

Sony vaio vgn-NR120E has no mic specially when u r on skype i can hear the caller but my voice is not heard by him...tell me the solutionWhat's your problem?

You're on a laptop and it's talking about a sound card?

If you can hear audio or the voice from the caller then you don't need a sound card.

Yes you can purchase an external mic and it just plugs into the mic port on your system. I think that might be why the caller can't hear you. All computers do not come with a built in microphone. And if you are skyping and using a web cam, all web cams don't have a built in microphone.

It Says that there is a built in mic but the people i chat with can't hear me. i don't think it's properly set-up. how do i set it up for skype and ym?

Make sure you have correctly installed the drivers for the microphone.
Running Skype, navigate to Skype-->Preferences--->Audio/Video from here you will able to select the device of your choice by changing the mic
Running Yahoo Messenger, navigate to YM-->Preferences-->Voice & Calls from here you will able to select the input device by choosing your mic These steps reference Mac, but PC should be similar.

Hi, Internal microphone on my acer aspire 8920g which originally has vista is not working now on windows 7. To be honest I didn't pay attention while I had vista and can't now remember if it worked at...

I suggest you go into control panel and device manager and see if your internal mic is listed there. If it is right click on it and see if it is selected as your default mic. I believe it may be un-selected. If that doesn't work I would just use the external mic with Skype as the internal mics with most laptops aren't that good anyway.

Acer aspire 5920 running vista has built in mic not working

Hey,

It is all because the Microphone is not set as a default device to start recording.

Its like your computer has no device for recording even if the computer has connected with Mic.

Just change the settings and enjoy..!!!

Check the below link:

Hope it helps.
