    How do I know if I have a built-in microphone?

    Howdy all,

    How do I know if I have a built-in microphone? I am on a relatives computer, trying to get skype going without external mic. Microphone drop-down choices are:

    Windows Default Device
    Realtek AC97 Audio
    Modem #3 Line Record (emulated)
    Modem #4 Line Record (emulated)
    Modem #0 Line Record (emulated)

    None of these allow sound to be recorded, Sykpe says cant hear any sound when test recording.

    Thanks, Nathan

    Hmm . . . Some monitors with built in speakers also have a built in mic. But they are rare. Other than that, I would venture to guess that your relatives computer does not have a built in mic.

    yep, I'd venture to guess that too, not too many if any that I know of, PC's have built-in mics, Windows AC97 audio would be one of the recording sources, but I think you'd have to have a Mic plugged in & set up to use it.
