how to find out if a laptop has a built in mic?

Hi,

I'm trying to help a family member find out if they have a built-in mic. The sound options say "SoundMAX Digital Audio". The laptop is a HP Compaq nx6110.

Any tips on whether they have a mic or not??

Try recording from it? Laptop's typically have a Microphone jack, if it doesn't it could have a built in one - normally quite well marked and around the top of the screen though as to catch your voice.

It doesn't, although it does have a microphone jack just incase you want a microphone.
