Right click the speaker icon and open recording devices. Enable the mic and set the levels.

The mic is enabled and the levels are up. It still doesnt work it only ever records a fuzzy noise and never picks up my voice. I know others have the same problem with win7 on netbooks

It's not just you having a problem with that netbook.
Where is the gain for the mic set?

I tried it on all different levels but still didnt work. What i dont get though is that i can talk on skype without a problem but the internal mic doesnt work with any other applications
