Vista no microphone input

Hi all,

I've got a built-in microphone on my computer. Six months ago (when I last used it lol) it worked fine to video chat. Now, it's been a while and I've updated to service pack 2, but I also updated my drivers.

Now, when I try to use Yahoo (or any program for that matter) my mic picks up a lot of static but no voice, even if I shout. Windows recognizes the mic on the Recording Devices tab. It's a Realtek Hi Def mic in a Toshiba Satellite, if that makes a difference.

Is there something that needs updating? Is the mic broken? What's up?

it seems like you have allot of interference
it may be a bad connection, or a messed up driver

Thanks, JessicaD. I'll check them out.

Arges, the interference varies. It's just odd that I can't get any sound into the mic at all.
