This means you have installed Audio drivers as well? If not install them first.

Using the Snipping Tool post a screenshot of the Playback and Recording devices reported by Windows (Right click speaker icon in taskbar). And if you have the Realtek Audio Manager installed post a screenshot of that too.

Do you know what the AUX Device is under Recording Devices? My guess is it's your built-in mic unless you know it's not. Does the bar on the right move when you talk?

If you have a normal mic or headset with mic try plugging that in and see if that works.
If your only tried while running on battery, presuming the AUX device is your mic, click on it then click properties and then look at the attached image. Also check the other tabs for anything that may help.

Do you have any third party apps that control your sound devices?

BTW the Snipping Tool is found under Start Menu - All Programs - Accessories. This allows you to drag a box around the area you want to capture instead of capturing the whole screen.

AUX usually refers to auxiliary input, it a spare jack that lets you connect an external audio source like an MP3 player. It's a stereo audio input jack.

One of my old MB's had a internal AUX connecter (Auxiliary input) that allowed you to connect other Audio devices such as early TV Tuner cards. I think it's possible that the internal mic could use the same type of connector.

It's a "built in webcam with microphone" in a laptop. My guess is a broken cable.

Thanks for the help, i'm not sure what AUX is but i've tried playing about with it and i can't seem to find out what it records. I've tried plugging in a normal headset and it works perfectly - just not the built in one for some unknown reason. I've tried on battery and plugged in so it's not that. And nope, just normal windows, no third party apps.


Thanks for all the other reply's; the AUX doesn't seem to be recording anything and i've tried playing round with it to identify but i can't find anything. Where abouts would this 'broken cable' be if it was broke? Can i open my laptop to have a look at it?

The AUX or auxiliary jack on my desktop PC's is a jack on the back on my tower next to my speaker out jack. On this PC its actually reconfigured as my second speaker out jack as I have quad speakers. On my Acer laptop its refereed to as the Line in jack and its on the front next to the speaker and Mic jacks.

On my desktop PC, when I go to Sound in control panel. Under the Playback tab, I have Speakers checked as Default device and "HD audio HDMI out" listed under that. That is my nVidia GT220 video card.
Under the Recording tab I have Microphone checked as default device and then Line In and Stereo Mix listed under that.
In your case I'm not sure what that AUX device is? I'll have to go fire up my laptop and see what it shows.

EDIT: laptop shows Speakers, Realtek Digital out, and Realtek HDMI out, under Playback.
Microphone, and Line In under are listed under the Recording Tab. No AUX device listed. I'm not sure what that is now.
