Windows 7: built in mic not working

built in mic not working

My microphone was working fine with vista installed, after clean-installing windows 7, it stopped working. All my drivers are up to date ( I guess) after scanning with third party software. Anyone, please help me!

System specs would really help... In short you can try DriverMax to possible locate the needed driver required... GL

try realtek "Vista_Win7_R249" downloaded from majorgeeks.com. My guess is that a realtek driver is required instead of a standard high defination audio driver.

Hi Kimlou,

You could try going here, selecting "Windows 7 (64-bit)" and "Sound" from the dropdown menus, and clicking the Conexant Audio Driver. Let me know if that one works for you.

As part of learning, I also tried to install realtek,but did not go in. When I checked in the device manager, the realtek was not there, but in the programs and features. I tried several times both in safe and normal mode. May be it is not compatible, I am not sure. How about if I want to upgrade my sound drivers (that you gave it to me). I found the more recent driver(conexant hermosa 4.98.9.0), I tried to installed it, but said "can not find the device" or something. I appreciate so much if you can help me in my learning.

Sincerely,
Kimlou

I am also not an expert. I am still learning. What I did was installed the software "realtek". Then I went to Control Panel>Harware and Sounds>Device Manager>Sound Video Game Controller and uninstall the current device.

This is done through an administrator mode and upon a right click, there will be various instructions. Click "uninstall" on the software identified in the Sound Video Game Controller. The restart your computer and it would automatically search for drivers installed in your computer.

Hope this help - like I said , I am also an amatuer who also am also interested in learning more.
