Sony Vaio Microphone Not working!

Hi, I am new to all of this. Sorry if these seems really dumb to all you experts!

I cannot seem to get the mic on my Sony Viao to work. It was working but now it has stopped. All very annoying.

Can anyone suggest why?

Many thanks!

I have the same problem. My

I have the same problem. My SONY VAIO is running on Windows 7. When I go to control panel "sounds" option and to "recording" tab, the device is shown but the whole image is faded type and says "Not plugged in".

This does not make any sense because my laptop has built-in microphone in it.

Please help if any advice regarding this problem.

Well, It will work again. Go

Well, It will work again. Go to your control panel and open "sound" which opens up to a small window with four tabs namely Playback, Recording, Sound and Communication. Click on the tab written "Recording" and you may either see one or no microphone icon. Just right-click inside the space and you will see a disply to tick in order to show devices and you are back again.

But if the dispaly is faded and could not come up, then you need to meet the PC technician to fix it. Thanks.

Sounds you may be hi jacked it's a type of malware/spyware most antivirus can't detect it, last time I checked, it's been a while.
