    internal microphone in laptop - not being recognized

    i hope someone can help me!!
    i was testing my microphone and it wasnt picking up any sound so i went to
    the devices and thought i would disable then enable the microphone to see if
    it would work.. but then it disappeared from the list!! everytime i go into
    the audio recording section nothing comes up! i know that there is definitley
    internal microphones but its just a matter of surfacing it on my screen!!
    please help... anyone!?!?
    p.s i tried system restore but stupid me didnt put in a resotre point
    earlier so i have nothing to go back to

    Have you got the appropriate driver for it from the laptop vendors website
    for Vista support ?

    I had the same problem. After disabling the microphone, I was unable to
    enable it again. That is until I opened the Sound window, clicked on
    the Recording tab, and then right-clicked in the space under the last
    recording device and clicked "Show Disabled Devices." Then I could see
    the microphone and enable it again.

    And to think that tech support wanted me to re-download and reinstall
    all my drivers...

    Hope this helps.
