Mic in Acer Aspire 3610

The mic in my Aspire 3610 is very low in volume no matter how high I have the volume set. I have the volume levels turned up all the way on the audio devices. Is that an inherent problem with this laptop, or can it be corrected?

    I'm not finding a "mic boost" option. When I go to the Recording Control, all I see is CD Player, Line In and Microphone. The Microphone has the volume slider and a "Select" box. I obviusly have that checked. Am I looking in the wrong place?

You need to go back into the sound settings in the mic and look for a little box that says 'Mic Boost', you need to tick this and you will find a big difference. right click on the speaker icon in your taskbar, click open volume control, click advanced on the microphone at the end of the row and see if mic boost is ticked.

When setting up xr8600 is it best to start mains and monitors master at 0DB?

1. Turn the main and monitor volumes all the way down (off). Plug a cd player into channel 9/10 and play a track of music of your liking. With the main/monitor volumes still off, adjust the gain on 9/10 until the clip light turns on, then back it down until the clip light just turns off. Put the channel volume at 12 o' clock.
2. With the music still playing, turn up the mains to the desired listening level first, and then adjust the graphic eq until the music sounds good in the room. Remember or mark the position of the volume control. Do not use the channel eq on 9/10 for music that has been mastered properly, leave the eq flat. Once this step is completed then you have now set the main eq.
3. Repeat the same for monitors. Turn off the main volume and then bring up the monitor main volume to the desired level first, then set eq. Now your monitor eq is set properly. Remember or mark the position of the monitor volume.
4. Set up microphone - plug a mic into channel 1 with volume all the way down. Speak or sing into the microphone and adjust the GAIN until you see the clip light, then back down a litttle on the gain. Put the monitor and main volumes back up to the mark from step 2. Now adjust the volume and monitor send on the mic channel to the desired loudness first before adjusting the mic channel eq. Use subtractive eq method to minimize distortion and feedback. ...i.e. if the mic is bassy then turn down the lows, do not ADD highs. If the mic needs bass, turn down the highs.

I always have too turn on the mic volume from volume control before i start audio chat. by default it is off. could u help me in fixing this . Model : Acer Aspire one d150 1669.

hi the reason this is is because you could be playing loud music and the mic could pick it up causing a screeching sound (you probably heard this when a mic is next to a speaker) and because this is such a small unit it is inevitable you can set it not to turn the mic down but if you do it will damage your speakers as it will either screech and when it decent 80 percent of the time it still is but we cant hear it and it really damages both mic and speakers that is why it is set like this by default i also have one of these computers and it is because they are so small the mic and speakers are really close so they have it set like this to prevent damage i hope you understand my exploration OK and i hope that this has helped thanks please contact me if you require more info on your net book as i can help you with anything regarding

Acer Aspire internal mic won't work.

You need to check the record settings and make sure the mic is not muted or turned down to low. Click START, CONTROL PANEL, then SOUND icon. Click the AUDIO tab up top. Make sure that your sound card is selected in the drop down menu under Sound Recording. Now click VOLUME tab. A new window will open up. Click OPTIONS then PROPERTIES. Make sure you have a check by the MIC and click OK. In the Recording Control window, turn the level up for Microphone and make sure it is not muted. Let me know what happens.
