HP Audio :: G60-535DX / Windows 7 Home Premium - Internal Microphone Inaudible

Dec 26, 2009

I am having problems with the internal microphone located at the top of the display on the HP G60 notebook PC, pre-loaded with the Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.  All OS, PC drivers and system ROM have been updated to current.
The sound it produces is at best barely audible or usually completely inaudible.  This is true when I use the internal Sound Recorder app as well as when I try to utilize Windows Live and Skype for either audio or video calls.  The fact it behaves this way using Sound Recorder proves it has nothing to do with firewalls or internet latency.  Also, I can hear and see the people I'm trying to communicate with just fine.
I first noticed the problem on an HP G60t system I purchased from hpshopping.com in early December 2009, which was a custom build and shipped to me.   I opened a case with support and they told me I would have to ship it back for repair or I could just return it.  I returned it.
Figuring I was just unlucky enough to get a bad system, I then went to Best Buy in late December 2009 and bought a second HP G60, this time a G60-535DX, which was similarly configured.  Guess what?  The exact same problem.
I have been researching these HP support forums and the customer reviews posted at bestbuy.com for the HP G60.  It seems many people are having the exact same problems.  I have tried all of the suggestions I have found, including the following, but nothing changes the fact the microphone quality on two HP G60 notebooks purchased from separate retail outlets / inventories is extremely poor and essentially non functional.

Dell Inspiron 1546 - How To Reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium

Oct 22, 2011

I installed some windows updates to my computer. The next time I turned on my computer it didn't act normal at all. It went to a start-up repair screen which scanned for a long time only to tell me "start-up repair cannot fix this computer" so I shut down and left my computer. I called Dell's support line and talked with technical assistance, the guy had me run some tests and in the end told me that there was nothing wrong with the hard drive and that it was my systems software that was the problem. didn't wanna restore at that point because wanted to save my pictures.

I ended up taking the hard drive out, transferring pictures onto my brothers computer and then I did a full system restore ( by tapping f8, choosing repair my PC, then choosing "Dell data safe restore and emergency backup" in the system recovery options screen. ) This actually worked and I restored my computer, however after installing updates again (quite a few too, when I shut down my computer it said installing update 1 of 72?! )

My computer went back to the start up repair screen and did the same thing as before. restored my computer one more time, and now again after updates were installed my computer will not work correctly. I do have the windows product key under the battery but would like to know how I can fix this problem. Will have to reinstall my windows software?

Acer :: 8935g - Can I Download A Copy Of Windows 7 Home Premium X64 And Use My Genuine Key

Dec 7, 2009

Got a 8935g, q9000 1tb 4gb ddr3 and ati 4670 1gb.

I am very computer savy and have built my own systems and overclocked etc for many years but this is my first laptop so any thing you think I should know just tell me.

Here I go , Why does this laptop have 5gb (4gb system ram and 1gb on the gpu) and a 32bit OS? I am waiting on the windows 7 upgrade but that will also be 32bit, Can I download a copy of windows 7 home premium x64 and use my genuine key, And if I do this can I get all the apps and drivers I need for full functionality of the laptop?

Also, When I turned it on brand new it is using 43% system memory, How much crap is on this thing lol? Is the upgrade cd for windows 7 a full new install or does it just upgrade the os without formatting the drive? Will the drivers needed for the laptop be bundled in the upgrade cd?

Anyone overclocked the cpu or gpu in this lappy?

HP OS/Software :: ProBook 4440S Missing DRIVERS After Repair Install Of Windows 7 Home Premium

Feb 6, 2014

I had to re-install Windows after a hacker locked my system. I hadn't had the unit long, so didn't lose tons of  important data or files. But, I hadn't had time to really get to know my system either....so now I have the new issue of trying to determine what all the hardware is that is not recognized.    I thought I would come to hp.com, find my drivers, download and be DONE.
(HP ProBook 4440S running WIndows Home Premium, 34 Bit)   
I have yellow exclamation marks on the following devices in Device Manager:
1.  Base System Device
2.  Base System Device
3.  Ethernet Controller
4> Network Controller
5.  PCI Simple Com Device
6.  USB Controller
7.  Unknown Device
If there weren't SO MANY drivers, this could be simple!

Dell Inspiron 1521 :: Clean Install Windows 7 Home Premium On New 500gb Hard Drive

Dec 6, 2014

I  had a problem  with my old windows vista, and  cannot restart windows. I put in a brand new 500hd. The windows 7 goes through the whole install procedure, but the last step "completing installation",  it  does not complete, but locks up. I have tried several times, and even removed the cd before the final restart, to have it search the HD for start-up soft ware, as I have read, but nothing works.

Dell :: Vista Home Premium- 2GB Vs. 4GB

Dec 20, 2007

I have been searching all over various forums and tech sites for an answer. Currently I have 2 GB of ram in my 1520 that's running Home Premium. I've done a clean install after adding the 1 GB Turbo Cache module. It was only about $30.00 and figured worth the risk to try for performance gains. I haven't felt much there.

Does anyone have any positive feedback on performance when upgrading from 2 GB to 4 GB of RAM? I am running 32 BIT and don't care that the full 4 GB are not recognized. I don't want to waste money unless it will make some difference.

Aside from the clean install, I've been using X-Setup Pro, Tweak UAC and TweakIV for optimizing the settings for a little speed. I've also tweaked the services according to Black Viper's web site. The software tweaking has helped immensely.

I appreciate anyone's feedback on upgrading to 4 GB of ram. Sorry if this has been an old discussion getting beat up once again. However, prices are right around $75.00 for 4 GB of G Skill from Newegg.

HP/Compaq :: DV9930US Internal Microphone Not Working

Jan 14, 2010

I have an HP DV9930US, and the internal/built-in microphone (actually, I think there are suppose to be two, surrounding the webcam at the top of the display) is not working. When I try it, I get no input, e.g., with Sound Recorder, I just get "noise".

I've tried this with the original Vista Home Premium 64-bit, Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, and Windows 2003 (I multi-boot), and I've tried every possible driver (including both the ones from HP and the direct Realtek ones) and setting that I can find, but no success ...

I haven't had a need for using the mic, so I don't think that I had tried it when I originally got the laptop, so I don't know if it ever worked...

I've partially disassembled the laptop, and confirmed that the microphone connector that goes from the display to the small (~1" x 1") board is properly connected. I haven't opened up the display bezel to check what's going on there.

Also, if I plug an external microphone into the jack at the front of the laptop, that does work.

Does anyone have a DV9930US, or something in the same series, and if so, does your internal microphone work? Did you have to do something "special" to get it to work?

Dell :: Need A Reinstallation Disc For Vista Home Premium

Feb 15, 2010

Dell never gave my girlfriend a disc to re-install Vista.

Actually... I'm playing the role of Tech Support Guy (even speaking to her with a difficult-to-understand Indian accent!!).

She had a crash, so I used VistaPE to get her data off of the computer. Now, I wanna restore Vista to the original factory settings. Sounds easy enough... use f8, right?

Wrong... it won't work in my case. The recovery partition is still there... I just can't access it. The operating system won't boot up at all. I used a non-Dell Vista Home Premium disc to access the Vista System Recovery option, but that doesn't help. I can't get at Dell's recovery partition.

I figure if I had a re-installation disc that's actually from Dell, I could access Vista's System Recovery feature that includes the Dell option to restore the computer to the original factory settings. Problem is, I can't get ahold of one.

Does anybody know where I can find one without going directly to the Dell website? I think Dell has the worst customer service on the planet and I would pay someone to hit me in the head with a sledgehammer before I'd spend one dollar on a Dell product. I've been scouring the internet for two days and can't seem to find a stray copy of what I need.

The computer came factory-installed with the 32-bit (x86) Windows Vista Home Premium.

Yeah... you read that right: a DELL with VISTA!! Could it get any worse?!

This whole thing is driving me bat-sh*t crazy.

I hate Dell... I thank you all in advance for any help that you can give.

Maybe someone would be so kind as to post an .iso image of their own disc?!

Sony :: Upgrade From Home Premium 64 To Ultimate 64 On Z690

Apr 6, 2009

I recently purchased the new VGN-Z690 and thought i would save some money by ordering it with the Home Premium (64bit) OS since I already had Vista Ultimate disks. I went to do an upgrade by installing the Ultimate disks, but the option to upgrade was greyed out.

The only option was to do a clean install, which I want to avoid due to all the other software that is on it already.

HP/Compaq :: To Upgrade Home Premium Vista To W7 Ultimate + SD

I'm one of those people that purchased a notebook during the free Vista to W7 upgrade period so I'm eligible for the no cost W7 upgrade. However, I would also like to additionally upgrade from Home Premium to W7 Ultimate now that it's available.

What would be the most efficient and economical route to combine all these upgrades and include a student discount? Is there a way to do this so that I only have to upgrades once?

Acer :: How Can I Disable Internal Microphone On Aspire 5920G

Sep 19, 2008

I've just bought an Acer Aspire 5920G and the Crystal Eye webcam works perfect with MSN and so does the internal microphone. However, I've started hosting a show on an Internet radio and the sound quality from the internal mic is too low. Therefore I bought a microphone that I plugged in the appropriate jack on the laptop (next to the jack for the headphones) but when recording or broadcasting it seems that my laptop uses BOTH the external and the internal mic. Could anybody tell me how to DISABLE the internal mic and use the external instead?

I've tried to disable the Crystal Eye from the Device Manager on Windows Vista but that doesn't solve the problem. I've also tried to modify the settings from the recording devices but the LineIn is not plugged in. I'd just like to plug a mic and use that instead of the webcam's one. Any help would be really appreciated as I have to host a show in 2 days and I don't have a clue on how to solve this problem.
