    One of my friends has a Compaq fs740 monitor, one that comes with a built in microphone. Now, he had been told that the microphone will work as is, nothing to plug in or anything. But when I try to talk to him using MSN and other talking software, I cannot hear him. The volume is all the way up and his microphone is turned all the way up as well.

    Can anyone help?

    Does the microphone work on other applications? Try using Start> programs> accessories> entertainment> sound recorder and see if the mic works in that.

    Are we assuming that its configured correctly? There might be a wire that comes out the back of the monitor that has to be plugged into the sounds card.
