Monitor built-in webcam and microphone aren't working :/

Q: Monitor built-in webcam and microphone aren't working :/

I have the compaq LA2206xc monitor and as i've been trying to use skype, I found out my microphone and video cam aren't working. I recently just moved so I am not sure if I'm missing something that needs to be hooked into the rest of the computer? Would love some help! Thanks

Preferred Solution: Monitor built-in webcam and microphone aren't working :/

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Monitor built-in webcam and microphone aren't working :/

Hello, You have to install the monitor driver: You must also install the Cyberlink YouCam software from the cd that came with the monitor. USB connectivity between the monitor and PC is required for the webcam to operate. Then, you need to check the user guide, check page Thanks,

I have a Dell Vostro 1500, running 32-bit Windows 7. It came with Vista, but I upgraded to Windows 7 a couple months ago, which I think is causing the issues I'm experiencing. According to whoever I'm speaking with, the sound for the microphone built in to my webcam fades in and out and gets really loud randomly. In an attempt to solve this, I bought an external microphone which also does not work.

The sound driver is the SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC, version When I tried to update it through Windows 7's update driver software it says I have the best version for my system, but I still suspect that this could be what is causing the problem. I can't seem to find a better driver though.

Any ideas?

Thank you

A:Built in webcam not working on dual monitor display?

nevermind, i realize that I am a dumb *** and didn't really take the whole "not plugged in" thing seriously as I thought a built in webcam was already plugged in with the rest of the cords. I guess one of my monitor cords wasn't pushed in all the way which caused it to not be detected. problem solved :/

Hi All
My TECHNIKA autofocus webcam with built in microphone was easy to set up and the picture is ok - seems a bit in slow motion - but the microphone is out of sync with the recording and playback.
I have tried asking this on many sites, but since I have Vista I though one of you clever bods would have some idea. It is very frustrating.
The webcam is: Technika 1.3 Webcam model no: H16BD5 from Tesco. Frame rate 30 frames per second at 640x480 resolution, built in microphone, plug and play, no need to install software.
My PC is an Acer Aspire M3600 - Inel Core 2Duo cU E4500 @ 2.20GHz 2.20Ghz, 2GB Ram.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank You!

Is there a cable coming out of the monitor that you would plug into a headphone looking jack? If not then you would need one.

I have installed Windows 7 Professional from Home Basic in my laptop about 3 months ago. The problem is, I cannot record any sound from my internal microphone after the installation. I think I have installed all the right drivers in my notebook and I have searched for troubleshooting my microphone. But the result is still the same. I only hear a hissing sound whenever I record a video.

Please help.

I bought my Envy about a month ago but haven't had any occasion to use the microphone. Today I tried and it's not working at all - on Skype or in Windows Voice Recorder. I've been through the HP document ( multiple times and it doesn't help. The weirdest thing is that when I play sound on the laptop, it does get picked up on recording - even if I mute the speakers. So it seems like the 'external' microphone just isn't switched on, somehow. But in Control Panel > Sound > Recording it's definitely the 'Microphone Array' that's enabled and set to default. So I'm very confused about what's going on, but it's pretty inconvenient!

Most likely the device is faulty.

The only way to rule out a software/driver glitch would be a fresh install of the OS. But that's not likely.

The built-in microphone on my computer is not working. I just recently got this computer from a friend and had it formatted to Windows 8 (it's a Toshiba). I went to 'Set up microphone', and when it asked me to test the mic, it wouldn't work. It would not pick up any sound. Then, I looked to see if it was either disabled, dysfunctional (according to the system), or maybe if it was outdated and needed an update. Not only was it enabled, but according to the system, it was also "working properly" and "up to date". What more can I do to get it to work ? I cannot afford to get a new one. PLEASE HELP !

I have a dell inspiron 1520 that runs Windows Vista Home premium. I had to reformat the hard drive about a week ago and it caused a lot of my built in hardware to stop working. One of the devices that stopped working was the built in microphone. I have tried right clicking in the recording devices window and showing disabled and disconnected devices, but it does not work. Is there a way for me to recover or download the program that I need to use the microphone again?

EDIT: Also having the same problem with my wi-fi catcher.

A:Built-in Microphone not Working

HI. Whats the make of your Soundcard? Find that out and then go to the manufacturers website and download the latest drivers for your card. Dunno if Dell themselves have the drivers on their website. Might be an idea to check first.
Alternatively, you should have been supplied with a setup CD with the drivers on (hopefully). Install them from that.
Once installed configure as normal via the sound control panel.

Go to your computer's Device Manager (right click My Computer, select Manage,locate Device Manager) find the devices in question and see if there are any symbols (? X or !) on the Webcam and any other devices. If found, right click and choose uninstall, reboot your computer and see if your computer will automatically install the drivers.

If that didn't work, please visit the Sony site and driver the latest drivers for the webcam and audio.

I recently wiped my laptop clean and reinstalled with windows 7 and the driver for my built-in microphone is not showing up and I can not use my microphone in any program.

I've tried updating everything.

Help ?

Good evening everyone,

I recently upgraded my HP Touchsmart IQ500 from Vista Home Premium to Windows 8 Pro. Aside from the lack of a media center or otherwise out-of-the-box-inability for DVD playback I've been enjoying the change. I solved the DVD problem with VLC, but I cannot figure out how to get my microphone to work now. It was fine before the upgrade, and now there's just silence when trying to Skype or record otherwise.

I've read a few articles that suggest updating the drivers in the Device Manager which I have tried, only to get a message that reads:

Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date.

Any help with this would be great. We've got family across the country and friends overseas that we keep up with via Skype and this is becoming quite the headache. Thanks in advance.

A:Built-In Microphone Not Working after Upgrade

Windows lies sometimes...

that being said, right click your speaker icon in the system tray

choose recording devices

Does it show a microphone with a green check mark under it?

Or does it say no audio devices are installed?

If it says no audio devices are installed then right click anywhere in that box and select show disabled devices

If the microphone shows up now but says disabled under it, then right click the microphone and select enable.

If this doesnt work then we'll look at your drivers.

I have a built-in microphone, Realtek audio drivers, and vista one of these is causeing the microphone not to show up. the microphone is not listed under audio devices and fails to work for recording of any sound.

I have fixed this one by installing drivers for a different audio card....this crashed the audio system and reset the system. the only problem is I can't remember how I did that.

I have also tryed system restore.

the line-in port works.

I'm am sure it's a soft ware problem.

I also lost my web cam last month and that came back on its own.

any idea whats causing this problem? any idea would be a great help.

Have a look in Device Manager at Control Panel >> Device Manager.
If there's an error symbol against an "Imaging Device" or "Camera" or something along those lines it will be the camera driver you probably need to re-install.

A:Built in webcam not working well

Yes, please try reinstalling the driver for it.

Uninstall the driver, restart your computer and Windows should automatically the detect the webcam and prompt you to install a driver. Pull out the Driver CD or point to the location of the driver and let Windows install everything for you.

Restart your computer again and give the webcam a whirl. You may also want to use different programs to test out the webcam.

Hi there!

I have recently purchased Toshiba Tecra Z50-A-181 laptop that came with Windows 7 64 bit (have 8.1, too but never installed it).

Anyways, once I started using it, I have discovered that the built in microphone is not working or not recognized at all.
So, what happens is that, once I plug in my headphones into the combined audio/mic jack, whoever I am talking to (on skype, let's say) stops hearing me (and my camera is turned on).

I have tried several things mentioned in other topics, however, the problem does not go off. Moreover, there is no driver for the camera or the built in microphone, or whatever.

In the device manager there is no additional device, not recognized and in the sound/recording options, no other microphone to use is shown.

I will appreciate it if anybody can help.
Thank you in advance!

The speakers and the webcam both work fine. Any help much appreciated! Thank you.

I have problem with the built in mic for my brandnew laptop (3 weeks old), so don't think that it is a hardware problem. I tried to reinstalled everything but does not work. I was infected by a spyware, then install AVG and scan the system, but as soon as the spyware was removed, so was my mic.
Thanks for help.

A:Solved: In-built Webcam Is Not Working

If it's not listed in Device Manager & neither are there any error symbols in Device Manager, it typically means the webcam itself is faulty or broken, which is why Windows is not detecting it. In that case, if the laptop is no longer covered by the manufacturer's warranty, you can buy an external webcam.

I purchased a Toshiba Satellite P855-S5200 laptop (just over a month ago) that runs Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I have used the webcam frequently for Skype and recording videos. Today when I tried making a video call, I got an error message from Skype that no camera was detected. I checked in Device Manager and the camera was not listed there. I've tried doing a system restore back to when I know the camera was working. That did not work. What could have caused this problem? What can I do to resolve it?

A:Built-in webcam has stopped working

Sounds like your web cam went bad. If you have already tried a system restore point. I doubt downloading drivers would solve the problem. Your best bet would be to have it service. You are still under warranty.

A:toshiba built in webcam not working

If the webcam is not listed under "Imaging Devices" and there are no error-symbols in Device Manager (eg question-mark), it almost always means that the device itself is faulty, such that it's no longer being detected. As far as Windows is concerned it doesn't exist. If it's still covered by warranty, Toshiba should fix it free of charge, otherwise it would be considerably cheaper to buy a clip-on webcam than to pay to get the internal one fixed.

Right, well I got this Toshiba laptop about 4 years ago. 6 months ago it started playing up.
When I preview the webcam, and take a picture, the picture doesn't actually take. I go to my gallery and a picture that I took AGES ago comes up instead. I don't know why! I've deleted the picture. It's not even on here anymore.
I deleted my webcam software and restored it from the recycling bin but it didn't change anything.

It's really frustrating, how can I get my webcam to take the picture that's actually in front of the camera, not one that's no longer existing!?

It's an old Toshiba satellite I believe.

A:Built-in webcam no longer working

Even without it's driver, the webcam device or "unknown imaging device" would still be shown in Device Manager (allbeit with an error symbol). The fact that it's not listed there, combined with the YouCam error message, does point to the webcam being faulty.

You can buy an external, clip-on webcam to get around this. Get a reputable brand, Microsoft, Logitech or Creative.

A:Built in Webcam - Not Detected or Not Working

If there is a warning or error in Device Manager that may be the web cam and it may just need a driver.

Else there is a small chance it somehow got disabled in the BIOS (Setup), so check in there.

Most likely the web cam died.

I have an ADC (or AOC, can't read the font) monitor with built in speakers. Today, they have suddenly stopped working. I checked all the sound controls, made sure everything was plugged in, and even restarted a few times. I also fiddled around with everything in between.

And yet, I still get no sound. I've learned that while im listening to music, if I turn my monitor off, I can catch a quick millisecond of sound from the speakers. The same also happens if I turn my monitor on, so I'm pretty sure nothing's truly broken. In any case, I'd reaaaally like some help on this problem, pleeease.

It will be interesting to know if you will be able to use mic on headset.

Windows xp sp logitec webcam c Installed according to directions on logitec ran CD connected hardware when prompted Worked fine Can see self in the logitec video screen take pics etc Chose not to use the headseat that came with the webcam as it had a mic built in to the camera and I only had one place to connect the head set would have pre-empted my speakers Downloaded and installed skype and ran through their series of video and voice tests All was fine Placed several calls good Also installed LogMeIn free version so I could support this set up after I left home for a business trip as my Mom is not all that savvy Two days after I got it all working the Mic no longer works When I run the test in Skype with the echo service I can hear the recording but it shows at the top the mic volume is too low and sure enough it does not play back the messages I mic Logitech working in c250 built webcam on stopped skype leave for the test I have found a post on here several in fact about checking certain skype settings and will do that when I get home tonight Meanwhile I had my Mom move Logitech webcam c250 built in mic stopped working on skype the camera from the USB port to Logitech webcam c250 built in mic stopped working on skype another one thinking it was maybe a port gone bad No such luck I also wondered if it could be caused by the install of logmein It doesn t work whether I m remoted in or not so it s not the amount of traffic causing the issue it would almost be like some kind of interupt conflict but a I thought that was pretty much a thing of the past and b I wouldn t expect logmein to glom onto a hardware interupt in any case Perhaps a conflict in port numbers used for the mic and the logme in software Can uninstall logmein but not remotely and won t be home for another month Wanted to see what else I could try Don t have any other apps on there that I could test the mic with apart from Skype Logitec installed something to let me take pics but not anything to test mic with Did check the skype mute button we are not muted Any other tips or ideas would be greatly appreciated I suppose the mic could just have failed immediately after purchase but that seems a bit odd nbsp

I am hoping someone can help me out here. I recently got a new monitor with a built in mic. When I would try and talk to someone, all the person could hear was a buzzing noise and when I recorded my voice and then played it back, all I could hear was a buzzing noise. I have the cord plugged into 'mic out' on the back of the monitor and it goes to 'mic' on the CPU. Is something hooked up wrong? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
