my built in to my laptop microphone has suddenly stopped working. I have a gateway laptop, and when i try to adjust the microphone settings on skype, it says the microphone is working correctly, but will not allow me to use any recording program. I have windows 8 consumer preview.
Problem solved. I had my microphone working for windows 8 consumer preview and then it all of a sudden deleted the drivers. I reinstalled the drivers from my laptops manufacturing website and BAM problem solved
