Having problems with your Acer PC Laptops ?

Why does the built in Mic not work?

\015 I am not sure of the set up for getting the mic to work when I am using Skype, and the quality with an external one is not good at all.\015

Answers :

Go to "Control Panel"..Open up the "Sounds and Audio Devices" folder..Now under "Device Volume" click "Advanced"...There should be a "Line in" option and a "Microphone" option. Make sure they and not muted and turned up.. Tell me if this helps...Don't get discouraged if this doesn't work, This is the most common cause.
