    Default Toshiba Satellite - no built in mic?

    I know there is a port for an external mic....but it looks like there is a tiny slit near the volume dial....but i can't pick up any built in mic....either it doesn't have it or my laptop mic is defective. Why wouldn't they have a built in mic?

    I don't know what model your notebook is, so I don't know exactly if it comes with a built-in mic or not. Perhaps it is referring to the built-in mic jack, not a mic itself.

    It would help if you told us what model. My U205 has the mic built in an it works very well.

    (From prior forum posts he mentioned he just bought a Satellite A100-0FH)

    From the manufacturer specs;

    it doesn't look like it has a built in mic. On the US A100s they don't mention one..

    Yes A100-OFH and no, it doesn't look like it has a built-in mic which I find quite surprising as I thought virtually all of them had it. Regardless, I just can't figure out what the little open slit is to the right of the mic? Maybe they threw in the built-in mic in higher models and just have a universal casing?

    not looking at your model, maybe it is the card reader? i bought a p100 and it has a memory card reader slot on the front panel.

    negative, the memory card slot is to the left of the mic and headphone jacks. this is a little slit about 2mm wide and 5mm high to the right...i called support and ofcourse they are clueless.
