    My NEW Laptop's Microphone Doesn't Work!!


    I have an HP 2000-2b10CA and I bought it FIVE DAYS AGO!! I was checking if everything worked so I shot a video and when I played it back I heard nothing! Then I found out it was my mic! I searched online and a lot of people told me to go to the settings and set it as my default device but IT DOESN'T WORK!! So I decided to re-install the driver but it didn't work! PLEASE HELP ME!!! I LOVE THIS LAPTOP AND I DON'T WANT TO GIVE IT UP!!:cry::cry::cry::cry:

    If you have Stereo Mix (System Mixer), that should be set as default Recording Device, if you have it. Then if either the mic or Line In is used it will be detected and heard or recorded.

    If reinstalling the driver, from HP, did not work, best to contact HP as only HP can correct it under warranty.
