Have you checked the webcam software to make sure you have the volume turned up for the microphone?

You could try downloading and reinstalling the webcam driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Acer Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the webcam drivers.



Try using ManyCam. It comes with drivers and software to drive it.




You can always download Manycam and install it. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When the site opens look down on the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type "Manycam" (without the quotes) in the white search area then hit the search mirror. When it brings back your results look for the one that says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it and install it. Make sure you remove the check box on any junky programs it would like to install. You only want to install ManyCam, no additions whatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use, and you will always know where your webcam software is.



You can also visit their site to see how to use it when ever you want to skype or use some other function that requires the webcam.

If the sound has worked on this machine after the new hard drive was installed, then all you need to do is a system restore from the start menu, acessories/system tools. You may need to go back a couple of restore point in order to get it back, but this should do the trick. If it hasn't worked since the new hard drive was installed, then ou will need to go to the manufacturer's support site and download the drivers.

SOURCE: web cam on latitude e6500

I have same problem. I downloaded the latest webcam driver, installed it. Everything is fine, in the device manager the device are present. But when i try to load the webcam application from dell the device is not present or not installed appear.
Notice: if I try the YM webcam, the device work properly - that's mean the device driver is OK.
So the E6500 is a beautiful great notebook, with poor software.

Should i have a built in microphone in my acer aspire 5332 laptop

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
NO, sad but true Aspire 5332 doesn't have a in-built Mic, you need to buy a separate one and plug it in the Mic jack.
I hope you understand, If you are having any more questions, feel free to ask.
