Hey Marie,
Try doing a test recording in the Windows media recorder. Chances are you will get a wave signal if it has an internal mic.. Usually laptops have built in mics but descktops don't.
Hope that helps,
Ian

How do i unmute my microphone on my laptop. i went i the volume control but it does not have a microphone line on it

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 http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/E153fpb/En/index.htm 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.

I have Windows Vista laptop with a built-in webcam and microphone. However, when trying to Skype people, they can only see me - not hear me. I've tried all audio settings and still can't figure out the ...

If YOU installed Vista on your computer, chances are that it didn't come with the right drivers for that sound card. I had the same problem.

If the laptop CAME with Vista, then there is probably a short in the mic. Have the computer look at by someone who knows laptops, and you might be able to get it working.

If it still doesn't work, RadoShack sells computer microphones for a decent price.


Hope that helps!

Have a dell inspirion 1521 and My Microphone does not pick up any sound. Please Help

Firstly, what Operating System came with you Inspiron 1521? It's either Windows XP or Windows Vista, my guess would be that it has Windows Vista (If you've not replaced the Operating System since you purchased it).

I would imagine that if it's not something simple like the volume of the mic being set to zero or muted, then it could be an issue with the drivers.

If you are running Vista, your best bet is to download the following drivers

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R173082&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1521&servicetag=&os=WLH&osl=en&deviceid=15135&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=0&libid=17&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&source=-1&fileid=235336

Although it's listed as Intergrated Webcam, your microphone would be part of your built in webcam, so with any luck, installing the drivers from the link above should solve your problem.

If not just let me know, and I'll be happy to investigate further :-).

My microphone stopped working and its built in

I had thesame problem on a brand-new Dell laptop. The solution is to intall IDT STAC9228 Audio Driver (file R204473.exe), which can be downloaded from Dell web site (http://ftp.us.dell.com/audio/R204473.EXE). This solved my problem with not having mic when using Skype.
