Built In Microphone Support

hello....i just upgraded my HP laptop from WinVista32bit to Win7Ultimate64bit with a 500gb(7200rpm) hard drive upgrade(Wow what a difference). Since I made the upgrade i decided to replace the integrated webcam because it didnt work. Replacement did the trick. Presto!. NOW onto the problem, the micophone.....I have looked extensively online for the answer but i am still having to use a plug in mic......the driver is working....i can go to device mgr and tap the mic and the green test bar has action...but it will not record audio....i am beginning to think i should replace it too....but i hope not...any help is appreciated.

I also have an HP laptop and if you go and open HP Media smart Webcam then click on About in the left pane then check Capture with audio.
Maybe that will solve your mic trouble.
Good luck

Hi Outburst,

Have you set up the Microphone? Windows needs the mic to be set up before it will run.

Type "Microphone" into the start menu. "Set up a Microphone" should be the first option. Click it, and run through the wizard.
