Problem with recording sound on Gateway Tablet PC

Hi folks! I think this applies specifically to my Gateway CX2724 Tablet PC
so if anyone else out there with the same laptop can help, that would be
great, but all advice will be taken.

My laptop was recently reformatted and all functions reset. This problem
however, was happening before that.

The "microphone" function doesn't seem to work, either using the (Sigmatel
Mixer Device's, which is what is on my laptop) External Mic or Internal Mic.

I remember vaguely that I had it working some time past (ie. able to record
in OneNote for instance) but I have no idea what I did to get it going.

Any ideas?

Thanks a heap!

>> "microphone" function doesn't seem to work <<

most likely a hardware failure... two suggestions.

Plug in an external microphone and see if that works.

If not, get a can of contact cleaner (electronics store, rat shack,
etc,) squirt the microphone plug, then squirt a _small_ amount of
contact cleaner in the microphone jack, then plug and twist multiple
times and retry.

The jack contains a "cutoff switch" for the internal microphone
(normally somewhere on the screen edge) and doing the above may
reconnect the internal mic as well.

Beyond that, open the sound control panel applet and report what's shown
for sound input devices.
