This model does not have a built in microphone. It is compatible with any computer, but only has a VGA input, so your computer would need a VGA output, or you would need some type of video converter.

    I'm age 73, not sure what a VGA is. For instance, when on Zoom we can hear them but they can't hear us. Currently have HP monitor & computer. Was given this Acer monitor that haven't hooked up yet, that's why was wondering if it had Mic & if compatible.

    Hi Mary. VGA is the video type that the monitor will accept. Since this monitor does not have a built in microphone, it will not be any better for you than the one you currently have. You will need an external microphone. It would be plugged into either the computer motherboard or a sound card. The jack on the computer would be pink.

    VGA is a distraction. the missing mic has nothing to do with any VGA port.
    the monitor did have speaker option new.
    but never any mic, ever.

Depends on what Operating System you have; Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 (or 8.1). Also, what HP laptop do you have? does it have a built-in microphone?

My Son Bought Computer For me & Set It Up. No Instructions ARE Available. Does This Computer HAVE Hidden Microphone?

If your "computer" is what you have posted, it is not a computer at all, rather it is a monitor. Here is the manual for the monitor in question it does not have a built in microphone, however, if you were to provide me with the computer type, the computer might have one. Or, if you told me the Operating System (Windows XP / Vista / 7) I could also tell you how to find out if the computer comes with a built in microphone.

In short: What you have requested information on is not a computer, and it does not have a microphone.

Is my AOC 9170 monitor compatible with HP Pavillion 6523W Windows 7? Does this monitor have built in speakers?

Hi there,

I am not sure about the speakers. The best way to tell if it has speakers is if you can physically see them. They are usually located at the bottom of the monitor and they look like little screens on either side of it. If it doesn't have HDMI or a line in jack (speaker plug) that you can see then it won't have built in speakers for sure.

If the monitor has the right connections to plug into your HP computer, which it should. Then it will work with your computer. Your computer has both VGA and DVI monitor connections on it so either of these should work as long as your monitor has the connections (which it should have at least one).

Have LG W2343 monitor. Just purchased a new HP computer which has Windows 7, but having trouble with the size resolution on my screen. Monitor worked fine on my old HP computer which had Windows XP

You have to look hereto see if it is compatible with Windows 7,

Otherwise you will need Windows 7 driver from LG if they have one.
Most monitors works fine without the need of the drivers when running XP, but Windows 7 you need the correct drivers to get the correct resolution setting, that is one of the reason I do not care much for Windows 7 until they fix this problem, since a lot of people out there that still have great working monitors that work just fine with XP, most manufacturers do not provide drivers for Windows 7 for old monitors because they want you to buy new monitors.

Acer Aspire 5315 micro dont work after installing Windows 7 :(

Hello rudifuhr37,

There might be a hardware compatibility problem with Windows 7 and the microphone driver. The following two web sites might offer information that can better help to find a possible solution.

1). The Microsoft Windows 7 Hardware Compatibility List. It can only be viewed with Internet Explorer.

2). The Acer support Windows 7 eligible systems link shows all the acer computers that are fully compatible with windows 7. (Acer Aspire 5315 is NOT in this list !):

If this solution is helpful please click 'YES' by 'Was this helpful?' below.

Have a great day,

I just upgrade to Window 7, to my ACER AspireOne Netbook. Successful install with no problems. I have Acer X163W Monitor to use with my Acer Netbook, before install Win 7, I was able to setup the monitor...

As of now, there are no Windows 7 drivers for that monitor.

Here is the Vista driver:

Acer X163W Vista 32-bit Driver

You can try installing this in Windows 7 using compatibility mode and see if it works. Otherwise, just try to contact them directly or try and submit a query about it.
