In built Mic not working in Windows 7


I got windows 7 for Christmas and I love it! It's everything I need, however the only problem is that my built in mic won't work. It worked fine in vista and I'm not sure if I need to set it up again.

I hope someone can help

Welcome to sevenforums !
what is your mic/audio device? Have you checked in the device manager? Use the windows update utility to see if it can detect a potential driver. In this case, it is very likely a sound driver (realtek, altec lansing/conexant, creative, etc)
Also, check your manufacturer's support page to find out the specific specifications of your computer, including the name of your sound card (onboard or not)
