A: internal microphone on HP 2000 notebook laptop not working

Hello maggie75. I understand that you're having some problems with your microphone.You should try recording audio in another application so that you can determine whether this is an issue with the application or the microphone. Try the following.Click Start, type "sound recorder," and press Enter. This opens the Sound Recorder application.Attempt to record sound.Verify whether or not you hear sound.Post the result.Also. you may need to update some software. If this is the case it will be helpful to have your product number. This document can show you where it is located for me.I will await the result of this. I hope you have a great day!

I recently upgraded my HP laptop to Windows 10 but discovered the internal microphone no longer worked after trying a video call on Skype. I have researched the problem thoroughly on the web and watched all the help videos I can find, but to no avail. I have tried updating the drivers from Realtek, uninstalling the microphone in devices and restarting my laptop, but nothing has worked. Before I updated Windows, the microphone worked fine. The 'intergrated microphone array' that I've seen discused on forums for this problem does not show up as in option in audio recoring devices. It doesn't seem to be recognised by my laptop at all in audio settings. In 'playback' the only device is Realtek speakers and in 'recording' I have set Realtek microphone as the default device but the internal microphone still does not pick up my voice as it used to. When I have troubleshooted the issue, I am told that my microphone is not plugged in, but this shoudn't be the case as I have never used an external microphone with this laptop. It seems that due to the Windows 10 update, my laptop no longer recognises the internal microphone. Does this mean I will have to buy an external microphone, or is there another way of fixing this problem? Any help with this issue would be much appreciated.

I had this same problem with Vista.

I have a Compaq V3018CL, and I have downloaded all the drivers from the Compaq website, but the Microphone only works in XP.

It's a Conexant High Definition Smart Audio H2 sound card.

Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

I called Compaq and they told me some ridiculous cost to talk to them, because my warranty ended on Oct 15 08

Thanks in advance!

Check the Mixer/Audio settings whether Mic is turned on.
 
Depending on the used software it might happen, that it disables the microphone while ending the program (Skype, ICQ etc.)

First off , thanks for having this forum to help us with our issues!

I just purchased Aspire 5733z, 8 MB Ram, Windows7, 64 Bit Notebook!
I have been setting it up a little each day.
The Built-in MICROPHONE does not work when making phone calls using Yahoo or even magic jack. After the first day of purchase it starting making a high pitch noise and so I turned decip down. I played with it for the next few days and well still no one can hear me on the other end.
Where is the Microphone located and is there something covering it when bought new that I need to remove?
Thanks guys!
P.S. I use a USB hub since I have several items that need to be connected to the PC.

A:Microphone Internal Not working!

To check your internal microphone is working use the windows sound recorder..... start, all programs,accessories,entertainment,sound recorder. Make a recording and check it records and plays back. If this works your internal mic is OK and I would start looking at a Yahoo driver or settings problem instead. From memory, the microphone is a small hole on the lid adjacent to the webcam.

As soon as i did this and after restarting my laptop the microphone was working perfectly fine. But again after a day the update automatically installed and the internal microphone problem started again. Pleas help me with a permanent solution as i cant keep on uninstalling this particular update time and again.

Hello

I recently reinstalled Win 7 on my HP Probook 4530s, and have encountered a few problems since.
The latest is that the internal microphone does not seem to be functioning at all through any programs that would use it (Skype, sound recorder etc).

It does appear in the audio devices control panel but not in device manager (although I don't know that it should?), and it says its working correctly but obviously this is not so!

Additionally, the sound was behaving erratically as well - it often will not work unless I click the test button on the speaker properties page. If I leave the computer for any length of time I have to repeat this.

I have downloaded the only audio driver that is listed here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsuppor...Id=5060880&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=4058 but this does not seem to have any effect.

Anybody have any ideas?

Hi,
My internal mic didnt work, i suspect it not compatible with driver but not sure. Please help.
Did not record sound, doesnt work at all (including with google talk, skype).

Here's are the related info. Do asked for more info if not sufficient.

A:Internal microphone failure (not working)

Usually, the Stereo Mix is set as the default recording device. Then any device, mic, or line in, can be used. Also with Stereo Mix set you can record audio from the internet (what you hear on the speakers). Setting to Mic only limits what you can record.

Also, in Microphone properties, do you have the "Levels" set for the mic? If the level is set to zero you would not hear anything.

A:internal microphone not working properly

Try the steps listed in this document from HP. It has the most common solutions and steps to isolate the issue. It is possibly a hardware issue since an external microphone works without any issue, but let me know what happens with each step of the document as that will help determine if it is a hardware issue or not. Also, let me know the results of the steps in the Using Windows Sound Recorder to test the microphone section. If this recorded file also exhibits the same behavior, then it is definitely not any third party software causing the issue.

Hello First off, I apologize if this isn't considered to be in the correct forum or not. I wasn't too sure, because I'm not exactly sure what the problem is.

My internal microphone currently is not working. I receive sound perfectly fine from everything, but my internal microphone will not record it. I have spoken into it, created loud noises, and have done whatever else I can, and it still does not pick anything up. My settings are enabled, yes. I've been to onto the HP site and have gone through step-by-step instructions over various solutions that could fix this, but none of it seemed to have worked.

I've tried a numerous amount of times to use the sound recorder and play it back, and when I do the sound does not show up.

Has anyone had this problem before? If so, how did they fix it? Or does anyone know maybe what it could be and any other possible solutions available?

Hello Dotaquote,

Check both the Speaker volume Microphone settings and the Microphone settings themself as there are a few settings found in each one that affect recording...Have you also contacted Compaq directly about this as they are more equipped to handle support requests for there hardware? They also provide a 24h live chat support service.

Hello there! I have been having issues with my internal microphone where it makes a loud noise on the other side  when I'm talking on skype. It has been like that since I got my computer and I had to buy an external one and then the issue was gone. External ones tend to break over time so I want to get the issue with the internal one fixed. I found an old thread ( http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/internal-microphone-not-working-properly/m-p/2158281#M30... ) In which the user had the same problem and he fixed the issue with the document he was provided with.

Would like some assistance please, thanks ^^

I've had this Toshiba Satellite L500 for over a year and the internal mic has always worked great. I often use Skype on this machine and the mic always works fine. The other day my friend added Skype to his iPhone and we wanted to see if it worked, but because we were in the same room, there was some feedback (not much, but a little), so we hung up. Half an hour later, I tried to use Skype to call a friend back home, and the mic wasn't working. It hasn't worked since.

I uninstalled Skype and re-installed all of the audio drivers. I have also tried adjusting all of the Sound settings in Control Panel (mic volume, boost, default device, etc.). I also tried using an external mic, which worked fine, and I was able to switch back and forth between the external and the internal, but only the external picked anything up. When I use Sound Recorder with the internal mic, all that's recorded is a quiet, garbled, electronic noise which fades to silence within a few seconds (see .rar attachment). EDIT: I found that this noise was due to using Microphone Boost. If I turn the boost off, nothing at all is recorded.

Device Manager says the internal mic is working fine. Is there anything else I can do? Is there some kind of software that I can run to test if the microphone is working properly or is broken? I am running Windows Vista 64-bit.
 

A:Solved: Toshiba internal microphone suddenly not working

So under "Playback Devices" I turned the microphone playback volume up so I could hear through the speakers if anything was being picked up. At one point I close the lid of my laptop and heard some crackling. Turns out if I move the lid up and down, the microphone crackles, so I'm guessing there's a loose connection in there somewhere. It's too bad because it's not an old machine, and I still have no idea why it stopped working so suddenly.

Just thought I would update you all and suggest a possible troubleshooting method for those of you in the same situation. Of course, be careful of using microphone playback without headphones, since it can lead to feedback which can damage your audio components.

A:Satellite Pro P300 PSPCDE - internal microphone is not working

How did you test the internal microphone?

Usually the internal mic belongs to the internal webcam. So did you test this in connection with the internal webcam?
The preinstalled webcam software allows you to create movies and pictures. The movie can be recorded with the sound and the internal mic is used for that?

Furthermore the internal mic should be listed in control panel -> sound -> recording tab
If it?s not visible there, then you should click right and should check the options; show hidden device, show disabled devices. Then you could enable the internal mic and could make this as default device.

Hello,

I own a laptop (Presario CQ56) and have been using Skype constantly for about a year with its internal microphone without an issue. After obtaining an automatic Windows 7 update a couple of days ago, my internal microphone stopped working. The microphone is still detected, enabled, but isn't picking up any input whatsoever. However, there is low static, but it's very constant, and isn't changed by input whatsoever. Here are the things I've tried:

-Restarting
-System Restore to before the update, then disabling automatic updates so I no longer have it
-Running the computer's find and fix audio recording software which claimed that there was no issue
-Uninstalling and reinstalling drivers without restart (with driver updates automatically through the computer's find and fix audio recording problems)
-Uninstalling and reinstalling drivers with restart (with driver updates automatically through the computer's find and fix audio recording problems)
-Uninstalling and reinstalling drivers with restart (through the official site's driver updates)

I do not own an external microphone, and I am hoping that I don't have to get one. That being said, that also means that I can't be entirely sure whether it's software or hardware based.

I hope that one of you can help me. I've done a lot of internet scouring and Google-ing and have run out of things to try; I've been at it for about 5 hours so far.

Thank you in advance.

A:Internal Microphone Suddenly Not Working After Windows Update

I would do a system restore to before it did the updates and see if it resolves the issue. Click start, programs, accessories, system tools, then system restore. Choose the date before the problem started happening and let it restore. See if the mic works after that. If it asks to do updates again and by chance you know what one caused the problem; then just dont download it. And to solve that from happening i would change the windows update settings to only download but let me choose when to install. EDIT: nevermind the system restore I just saw you already did that. In the end though i would just completely uninstall the device itself; remove it from device manager completely; and let windows hopefully re-detect it correctly.

Hey guys, I've been noticing a strange issue with my 2011 HP 2000 Notebook laptop for quite some time and figured
I should look into asking for some assistance. For a long while now, my laptop, at very random and less-than occasional times, will make a squealing sound or a long beep, and then something inside clicks rather loud. I've noticed lately that I have received a "BAD_POOL_HEADER" Blue Screen error a few times, twice when I would wake the computer from Sleep Mode, and once while a Windows 7 update was in progress. Luckily, after my computer restarted from the one Blue Screen, the update continued like normal. I've also noticed once in a while if I shut the computer down, right before the laptop completely powers off, it may make a quick beep and click before powering off. I'm a little scared, as I don't know what could be the issue. I feel as though it's the HDD, but I don't know, hence why I'm asking for help here. Can someone help me out? Thanks!

The integrated microphone on my T61P has stopped working since I sent it to the shop to get it fixed (they reimaged my hard drive and replaced the keyboard).

But since then, the "new" laptop's microphone hasn't worked.

It IS installed with the LATEST soundmax driver (aprl 2008), and it is NOT MUTED. microphone boost on/off doesn't work.

I tried the test voice thing in the audio properties, and it still doesnt work.

I really have no clue whats going on.

I'm usually pretty not-stupid, but I can't figure this one out.

I use nod32 antivirus, if that makes a difference.

I'm thinking its a driver conflict issue. I'm sure its not the microphone thats messed up.

I have a Sager NP2090 with Windows Vista. I recently tried using the built in mic for gaming, and after playing around with it I quickly found out it's extremely staticy, not really worth using. I've tried configuring it through the speech recognition, but after reading the lines given in the first step it says the computer is not picking up anything from the mic. However, when I go to my sound recorder and do a quick clip it's working normally, just really fuzzy. The mic is set to 100 and the boost is +20 db, anything lower and almost nothing is audible through it.

Anythign else I could try to get this mic working better? I really doubt any company this day in age would put mics this terrible into computers.

Hi,

after upgrading a Toshiba z20T laptop from Win 8 to Win 10 (and updating),
the back camera (Toshiba Web Camera - 5M) no longer works while the front camera
(Toshiba Web Camera - FHD) works fine.

The device manager shows the camera only under "hidden devices", and its icon
is greyed out. The device status message indicates this problem:

Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)
To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer.

I am not able to open the laptop and physically reconnect the device.
Here is what I tried to do instead:

0: reboot (any number of times since the problem occurred a week ago)
1: tried to update the driver but it's uptodate
2: tried "scan for hardware changes" and "add legacy stuff"
3: troubleshooted hardware and scanned for cameras and devices
4: uninstalled the driver - which made the camera disappear completely and its
icon came back only after using a restore point
5: sfc /scannow produced only standard unrepairable files (apparently related to NVIDIA)
6: compared the registry entries for the two cameras (there are slight differences -
working camera has EnumerationRetryCount = 1, while it is = 0 for the other one;
the non-working camera has 6 or 7 extra keys called DescriptorValidationInfo
7: tried to install an older Realtek PC Camera driver of the "unconnected" camera

Ive had my HP folio 13 Ultra book for a while now. I'm running on Windows 7 Home premium (64)
But a few days ago I found out the sund was not working. And for some reason the sound is working perfectly on my beats headphones
I have 2 Sound devices: IDT High Def CODEC (speakers and Headphones) and Communications headphones (IDT high def CODEC)
For Example: When you press the sound icon and you test the sound the green sound bar comes up but nothing comes out of the speakers.
Ive done the following: Trouble shooted, it found nothing , the sound is defiately on and ive tried updating the drive but its the latest. I really do not know why it is playing up.
Alright whats weird is it says it is working properly in the advanced settings?????!!!
Also when i play a song on itunes the green bar will go up and down like usual but the sound does not come out of the damn speakers. To make it more weird when I enable the Communications headphones and test them the sound comes out of the speakers and cuts out (since it is a test).i've phoned a friend of mine and he said that maybe the sound is stuck or locked on the headphones. He also thought that maybe the computer is computer is mixed up or confused with which audio device is what.

Hello ,
I have Dell Inspiron 3543. purchased on august 2015 . Its speaker and some keys of keyboard are not working . I updated all the drivers. I did Laptop's factory restore step. But none worked.  
I had shown the issue to few hardware engineers for issue confirmation. They all said It has keyboard and speaker issues. Contact to dell support as one year is not completed.  But Dell support is saying the product is not under warranty and contact dealer.  I contacted dealer. Dealer said we have updated the warranty.
To whom should I contact now? How my issue will get resolved?

What system update, windows update, a driver update? This is pretty vague.Could the update be coincidence and the keys are broken?

A:Internal and External Microphone

You need the Microphone mode. The microphone mode provides 5VDC on the "ring" connection, which is required by a "computer" microphone. If you use or set the jack mode to "Line" the "ring" connector will change from 5VDC to a signal in connection and a "computer" microphone will not work.

My computer was wiped recently and after reloading it with windows 7 the internal microphone has stopped working all together. I checked and it does not show up under my devices.
Detail about my computer:
I am using an Hp Widescreen lap top. Its an HP Pavilion dv9000 that originally was using Vista. I have had other internal issues in the past such as having the CD Drive stop working. I took that in and they said it is busted and the only way to fix it would be to have them take it out and put a new one in. The internal camera is still working though. I have never dropped my computer so I don't under stand what is happening. Also I think it may have happened before then. When I started using my headphones with a microphone attached it might have stopped working around there too... Sorry for not being very clear. I'm not sure when it stopped working EXACTLY.

I have a Dell Vostro 1500, running 32-bit Windows 7. It came with Vista, but I upgraded to Windows 7 a couple months ago, which I think is causing the issues I'm experiencing. According to whoever I'm speaking with, the sound for the microphone built in to my webcam fades in and out and gets really loud randomly. In an attempt to solve this, I bought an external microphone which also does not work.

The sound driver is the SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC, version 6.10.0.5614. When I tried to update it through Windows 7's update driver software it says I have the best version for my system, but I still suspect that this could be what is causing the problem. I can't seem to find a better driver though.

Any ideas?

Thank you

[The MSI forum either takes forever for someone to reply, or nobody ever does.]

So I noticed that, when I have external speakers plugged in via the green output, the internal microphone is disabled. When I have them unplugged, the internal microphone is enabled.

BUT, the audio quality is extremely bad and is very low. The microphone level is all the way up to 100, the boost is at +30.0 dB, and the format is at 2 channel (16 bit, 48000 Hz, DVD quality).

Even if I'm 3 inches away from the microphone, the audio is quite low and the quality is bad. Sounds like an old Internet stream or something.

My audio drivers are up-to-date. Sort of disappointing, especially when it comes to Skype (audio quality is very poor).

Hi,

I've searched your forums for this (and exhausted Google several times), and haven't quite found a response to it.

I have a Thinkpad (Lenovo R61, if that helps at all), and am coming to terms with this frustrating device known as the internal microphone.

Basically, all I want is to turn if off. Disable it. Be done with the wretched thing.

I use SoundCapture to record audio sometimes from websites (nothing heinous, just soundbytes to help with my studies). It works fine on my desktop computer, but this internal mic on my laptop is playing havoc with it. (Every time I try to record something, it merely becomes a muffled background noise, and in the foreground there is only the recordings that the microphone has picked up.)

I have tried going to Control Panel > Sound & Audio Devices and playing with the Audio and Voice options there (such as turning the volume down on both Sound and Audio Recording options). However, after doing that, I still could not get SoundCapture to successfully record any sound coming from the computer (or any alternative recording programs, for that matter). Also, now when I try and use a sound capturing program, the only 'source' I have available to select is Microphone.

I'm sure I'm probably doing something wrong; I don't claim to be a whizz with computers. But it's very frustrating all the same.

A:Latitude e5420 internal microphone not recognised

eabanda I upgraded to Windows 8Pro a while back. at first it would show the internal mic but greyed out
Are  you  saying that the mic worked okay in 7 but never worked at all in 8? If so, that might be the problem. Dell does not provide an audio driver for an E5420 running 8.
To diagnose the issue perform a system recovery.
> If the mic works when the system is restored back to 7 then the hardware is okay. You might need an 8 IDT audio driver or Intel chipset driver for the E5420 if you can find them. Maybe you can install the IDT 7 driver using compatibility mode.
> If the mic does not work after the system recovery then there is probably hardware failure. The E5420 came with 2 mic configurations: an internal mic near the power button on the base, or a dual mic array on either side of the optional webcam in the bezel at the top of the display.
If the mic hardware has failed and if you have the optional webcam, you can fix the mic by replacing the webcam. You can get the Owner's Manual (which is actually the Service Manual) from the E5420 documents page. It has step by step instructions for replacing all replaceable parts.
If the mic hardware has failed and if you don't have the optional webcam, I don't know how or whether it can be repaired.

Hi all, I've had this B50 for 6 months now and finally decided to update to Windows 10 (Machine Type Model 80LT). Now that I've updated, everything seems to work great apart from one thing... the Mic in Skype does not seem to work at all. The Mic works 100% fine in voice recorder but in Skpe the most I can get on the Echo test call when I scream at the laptop is a distorted buzz. Otherwise it's pure silence. Steps I've taken:1) Updated Realtek driver to 6.0.1.7553 found on Lenovo Support Site2) Updated driver through Windows3) Played around with every setting for recording devices (disable effects, let programs take exclusive access etc).4) Correct Mic is selected in Skype, tried the few settings possible in there which do nothing for me.5) In the Lenovo Settings App, tried all the settings in there too which don't do anything. When I do start a call on Skype - Lenovo settings highlights the Mic in Orange like it's been activated. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I need Skype for work and can't be having to use my phone for Skype calls all the time!

I noticed in the properties there was no "audio boost". There were also other mics to select from, but this is the only one that picks up sound. I'm currently using my phone through the external port as a substitute with the microphone app, but it's inconvenient.

A:Internal microphone only picks up background noise...

The first thing I see is you do not have the correct sound driver. You only have the generic, basic function, Windows installed High Definition Audio Device. The first step is to install the correct sound driver.

There are two different M14x models listed on the Dell site, a M14x (early 2011) and M14x R2 (early 2012). Which model do you have? The 14x downloads show Realtek for the sound. The 14x R2 shows Creative Labs.

Suggest you access the Dell downloads for your model and download the available sound driver, and then see if the mic works.

The Windows 10 upgrade seems to be working fine on my HDX 16 (I did a clean install). Now I want to talk to Cortana and cannot get my built-in microphone to work. This brings up two questions. 1. Does my laptop model have an Integrated Microphone Array? I cannot remember the last time it worked, but I thought it had one. 2. If it does have a built-in mic, how do I get Windows 10 and Cortana to hear it? I have tested and have got things to work with an external (Logitech) headset mic and headphones. And, I have an old unbranded external stand mic that works as well. I just cannot yell "Hey Cortana" at my PC and get anything to happen. I also ran the mic test on the Integrated Microphone Array and it recorded nothing (and I set the array to default). My driver is IDT High Definition Audio CODEC 6.10.6225.0, dated 7/21/2009.

I've encountered a problem recently with my hP notebook/laptop, it will turn on (you can hear it) and the screen will load but it will be almost blank but with the mouse cursor (which I can move with no problem).Some times it will load with a screen saying "preparing automatic repair" then goes back to the grey screen.I've tried resetting it by holding the power button and everything but that didn't seem to work.And I'm not exactly sure what model I have considering I can't even get into my laptop.If anyone has any suggestions it would help so much.This laptop isn't old either it's only about 2 years old.Also, I've noticed that the keyboard is getting loose (when I type I can see it pop in and out) so I feel like maybe something isn't connected.I have so many pictures/memories on this laptop and I have no way of transferring the files since I can't even get to them, so I really need help, thanks in advance!

We received a laptop of eBay with Windows ME installed and decided to upgrade to Windows 2000.

The install copied files, then converted to NTFS, then when it got to the stage where it says.. The installation will now try and detect keyboard and mouse.. Your screen may flicker for a few seconds.. about halfway through the progress bar, the same point everytime, the installation "blue-screens".

The error message exactly as it appears is:

*** STOP: 0x000000E0 (0x00000001,0x80000003,0x00008080,0x00000000)
Your computer (BIOS) has reported that a component in your system is faulty and has prevented Windows from operating. You can determine which component is faulty by running the diagnostic disk or tool that came with your computer.

If you do not have this tool, you must contact your system vendor and report this error message to them. They will be able to assist you in correcting this hardware problem thereby allowing Windows to operate.

Here are the details of the laptop: (The spec's are not precise.. I just remember them from the eBay ad)

Pentium 2, I think around 400 mhz.. somewhere around there

Recently received my U400 and the microphone worked great. However, at some point during a Skype call, my partner could not hear me very well and was only able to hear static on my end.

I checked my sound setting and under the "Recording" tab, the Conexant Internal Microphone was very active and "loud" (as if I was constantly talking). I went under properties and checked "Listen to this device" and all I could hear was static. I tried talking but couldn't hear myself. Lowering microphone level didn't seem to change the amount of static I hear from my microphone. I turned off mic boosts and enhancements, but it didn't change static.

Internal microphone is set as default device. Stereo mix is similarly active and loud. Driver version is 8.54.19.0. (up to date). Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Tried uninstalling driver and letting Windows install a new driver, but problem persisted. Pretty much can't use microphone to record, but it shows that it is active and is receiving a lot of sound somehow.

What should I do?

A:Lenovo U400 Conexant Internal Microphone Receives Static Input

The first thing to do, since you let Windows install a sound driver, is to reinstall the Lenovo supplied sound driver. Non-Vendor supplied sound drivers usually either do not work or do not work correctly, including the windows installed generic HD audio codec driver.

Hi, You do not have this option as mentioned in its manual (page #17 for the jack on the left hand side - ie headphones jack): Produces sound when connected to optional powered stereo speakers, headphones, earbuds, a headset, or television audio. Also connects an optional headset microphone.NOTE: This jack does not support optional microphoneonly devices. You can find more info from the following manual:   http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03328663.pdf Regards.

Good day, In order to increase the capacity of the internal HDD we are trying to install a 1TB HGST HDD, SATA & 7200rpm. The new HDD is not being recognized by the system. The HP engineer says that he is unable to run a health check of the new HDD in order to install the OS.We connected the HDD externally to a usb casing and still no luck. We can hear it spinning, but it is not seen in "My Computer / This PC"The HDD is original and brand new and purchased from the authorised dealer, with a tax invoice.This is the second time it is hapenning. HGST confirms that all the HDD's are tested for stisfactory operation prior to despatch. And are willing to replace this one too but are equally baffled.The engineer is not able to suggest or advise. Is there something we are not doing or that needs to be done to get this new HDD opertional / be recognised in DOS for the pre OS installation check-up, inorder to be able to install the OS on this new internal hdd? Any help / suggestions are welcome.Thank you
