Re: To enable Microphone in laptop
You've provided no details about your computer, so I can't give a precise
answer to this, but have some suggestions:

Firstly please reply and post details of the make and model of the laptop
(at the very least).

Secondly , read the user manual for your laptop. If a copy didn't come with
the machine, then the manufacturer website would usually have a PDF copy
available.

Thirdly, at a very rough guess, I would say you need to press a combination
of the "Fn" key and one of the "F" keys (the ones number F1 - F12 like Fn+F5
or whatever). It could be any one of these 12 (or perhaps 10) "F" keys.
Each of these keys does something different, like turn volume up and down or
swaps between monitor and projector or external monitor etc.

Finally (and this is probably not an issue) if it's some sort of hardware
problem (microphone not working for some reason), you need to take the
computer back to the vendor from whom you purchased this (or their
authorised service agent) claim service for it (under the terms of the
warranty if necessary).

Also check that the hardware devices are all up to date with drivers and
software etc. (also usually available from the manufacturer's website).

Re: To enable Microphone in laptop
Go to Help & Support from the start menu and search for the word microphone.
HP/Compaq and other manufacturers customize the help and support to be more
specific to theirr hardware, sometimes. User installed Vista's help and
support should give general info that might be useful on your system.

You might also go to control panel and choose something like Sounds and
Audio Devices. The window you get might have a hardware tab that lists
your microphone, and with that highlighted, you might click the properties
or troubleshoot... button.

Re: To enable Microphone in laptop

If u want to enable it (if it is disabled) u can go to device manager
and open the device settings and enable it. If it still does not work
try updating the driver and in some cases the microphone does not work
with some software's ,this has happened to me well i use an external mic
for that but there is a solution to it but i would not like it. You can
do a custom reinstall of your OS then it does work. (OR there may be a
fault in your device.)
