It's my first post here so please bear with me. I'm not a super techie person so pardon my terms.
I got a Toshiba Dynabook AX/940LS laptop with Windows XP before and installed Windows 7 on it. Everything has been working so far except for the microphone. I can't seem to perform any recordings, or use Skype and other Video Calling plug-ins because I kept getting an error that "No audio devices are installed". The speakers are working fine though. Again, I just recently purchased it and installed a different OS immediately, I did not know if the microphone was working fine before. But I was thinking, if it has a microphone port then I guess it has a built-in mic, right? Well, I performed some TS and here are some of them:
I checked the devices for Sound and here is what I get:
I checked "Show disabled devices"
and "Show disconnected devices"
but nothing still shows.
I went to Device Manager > Sounds, Video and Game Controllers
and got "High Definition Audio Device"
..not very helpful with that one..
anyway, I "Updated the Driver Software"
So, I "Disabled"
the High Definition Audio Device Sound Card, "Uninstalled"
it, yet it's still the same.
Next, I went to Control Panel, typed "Troubleshooting"
in the Search bar. Went to "Troubleshoot Audio Recording"
Lastly, I performed a step that I found online, going to DXDIAG > Sound
to get the "name" of my Sound Card, because I was thinking of performing a manual search for its updated drivers
and here is what I got:
Still, it's not giving me a "name"...and I don't really know what to do anymore.. I guess I'm out of options, hopefully someone here can enlighten me and help my issue.
Sorry for the very long post!
Thanks in advance!
