    I have a Compaq Presario 1200 laptop modle 12xL300. I can not record voice over it. I have tried sound recorder...nothing! I can not speak over MSN Instance messenger...nothing! I tried using my IBM Video Camera that sends voice and video over e-mail....no sound! I have check mic...it works! I have check Device Manager....shows everything working...no yellow marks! I have check to make sure my speakers and mic are turn on...they are checked. I have not a clue what is wrong??? I can speak into my mic and hear my voice coming over my speakers though. Can you help me out here....Thanks!

    Hi dlw317, welcome to TSG.

    When you attempt to record using sound recorder, do the green lines spike like it's working?

    Check this out too....Go to your audio controls and click on the advanced tab under microphone. Look in there and make sure you don't have a secondary mic checked. If it is, uncheck it!Worked on mine!

    TT:)
