I have a 6month old Packard Bell Easynote LJ65 laptop. I have recently installed Win7 and am happy with. I copied my files etc to a USB HD and have used it for a few weeks with no problem. Today was the first time I had tried the web cam with the new system and I had to load the cam software from the USB HD. That works fine but when I tested the built in microphone and played back the speech it was very quite. No amount of tweeking would sort it. It worked fine with Vista and the volume is OK playing MP3's or listening to TV or web radio. Can anyone suggest what went wrong and how to cure it.
Well I tried every thing suggested but still have a very low playback for anything recorded with my laptop mike. I found a little microphone which I forgot I had and now use that instaed of the built in mike. I have now got a superb playback and spoke on Skype with a mate and he said it was very loud and clear.
The mike I have was bought from Maplins a while ago and is little more than a jack plug with a tiny mike on the end which can be swivled round to point at me. The mike sticks up from the jack plug about one and a half inches. It was a fiver.
