Re: my internal microphone is not working

Hi

 

What model is your laptop?

 

If you go to Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, then Sound, then the Recording tab.. does the green bar for the Microphone move when you tap the mic or speak?

 

If so, it is working. You can't hear it yourself through your speakers.. unless you go in to the Microphone properties, then to the Listen tab and check 'Listen to this device'.

Hi

 

Yep it does. Did it used to work OK? Could be an issue with the Mic itself.

 

Maybe a job for the Repair Center.. or you could buy a Headset with a Mic.. these tend to be better for Skype calling etc anyway.

Re: my internal microphone is not working

Tx for the assistance.  Still don't have a working microphone..  I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the sound card software from the RealTek web site and nothing has changed..   If there is anymore help out there, I would appreciate it.
