Please explain what you are trying to do and what is happening when you try it.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Does the microphone work okay if you plug it into another machine?

Its a built in microphone, the bar is always full, thats why it cant pick up my voice anymore, unless i remove the bar thingy, but i dont know how to do it, its stuck, even if i disable and enable it or i restart my laptop, or even reinstalling the drivers :)

For me it smells like a hardware problem.

When you record something now, do you really get nothing but loud noise?

I guess the problem doesn't appear when you connect an external microphone, does it?

I feel like its not a hardware problem, cuz like it just happened suddenly, but i ignored it for months, i THINK it could have happened after i connected my projector to my laptop through HDML? could that make it get stuck?
When i record now and play the recording, i wont hear anything. And if i enable the checkbox, thats when i start hearing the noise. (in the pic)

Hmmm...

Let's make an experiment. Please download Audacity (http://www.audacityteam.org/download/windows/) and record let's say 5 secs of silence and then start talking for 5 secs and then shout for another 5 secs. Plese provide screenshot containing whole track and rest of program window.

As for me it is hardware. It seems we've got some unwanted current which distorts the signal. Haven't your laptop had some adventures like contact with liquids, shocks or... ground?

The only thing which doesn't fit is that silence on recordings. It should be a noise. That's why I want to see the Audacity screen.

There was no adventures LOL, i think it changed over night, i dont remember clearly since couple of months passed.

but do you think getting this fixed will cost a lot? :o

I already had audacity, i recorded n it was like this the whole time.

It's nothing but huge dc offset. Something like this won't be perceptible as noise indeed.

If it was my laptop I would get used to using external mic. It can be even the cheapest one.

Costs of fixing? No idea. I think it is even possible that this isn't fixable at all. But it is also possible that it is just tiny little thing.

If you decide to have it fixed please let us know what was the final diagnosis of service center.

Ill get used to using the external mic aswell, recording isnt as important as the speakers n audio :) uk?

hmm idk if i wanna bother checking if its can get fixed or not, im lazy and i alrdy purchased another external mic through ebay

i contacted someone on a website that has been helping ppl with tech stuff since 1998, he also thinks its a hardware problem :)

thanks to the both of u :P
