Microphone does not work



I've tried all the solutions I can think of...followed the trouble shooting
guide, but when I open up the Speaker Properties, and go to Levels to see if
my microphone is muted....all I see is the volume level.....no phone line,
Line In, Aux, Microphone....What else can I try......(frustrated)


Right Click Sound Icon (Little Speaker) near Clock - Properties
Sounds - Recording Tab - Mic - Configure and Properties

Click on the Speaker in the notification area. When the volume mixer opens
click on the word 'Device' situated just under the legend Volume Mixer.
Does it show more than one set of speakers? For example mine shows:

Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)
Speakers (Bluetooth SCO Audio)
Realtek Digital Output (Realtek High Definition Audio)
Speaker (Bluetooth AV Audio)

Is there a tick mark next to the 'Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)'?
That is assuming your PC is using Realtek Audio. It may be that you need to
re-install (or update) the Realtek audio.
