In built Mic not working in Windows 7

Hi,

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
Thanks
Cameron

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)

It seems to detect it in the control panel but doesn't record anything
