This is a vexing little problem. I am trying to use Skype but my microphone won't work. This is an internal ATAPI Realtek HD microphone.
I am running an Asus NX90Jq with Windows 7 Ultimate. Ran the Windows troubleshooting process on the microphone which verified that: device was found and is available; the driver is installed and enabled; the volume is correct; the device is not muted. Basically, no trouble found.
I tried to run Skype, including the microphone set up and the test call. Tried speech recognition as well as Yahoo IM voice with microphone set up and the test call. None show any microphone volume.
Running Control Panel/Sound/Microphone set up gives me three options: headset mic; desktop mic; other external mic. I have tried each of those with no success, showing no volume.
I have tried three sets of Asus audio drivers available for my system, two from downloads and one from the driver CD, all with the same result.
So, the basic question appears to be: How do you perform Microphone Set Up on an internal microphone when that option isn't presented? Or, if that is not the problem, what is?
Thanks in advance...RG
