My built-in mic vanished!

The build-in mic disappeared from the list of record devices on my Pavilion dv9000z. The HP diagnostic just tells me to install the driver. I don't see it in the list of drivers shown for my laptop.

Re: My built-in mic vanished!

Does it show up in your device manager? If it doesn't even show up there, it's probably not a driver issue.


Otherwise, just delete it, and run a "scan for new devices", let it auto search for drivers, chances are, the driver is still installed if it was working before.
