This may be a daft question but how do you check to see if there is a built in Microphone and speakers on a laptop or desktop. :)

well....if you can hear sound out of your laptop...(heck...if it was built in the last decade) then it's got speakers....and most recent ones will have a built in mic....press start, then settings, then control panel. now click on "sounds and audio devices" then go to the voice tab...and press test hardware...that should bring up a hardware test that will ask you to talk to your computer...if it detects you talking...then you've got a mic

most desktops have A built in speaker...but it's just for system alerts....desktops RARELY have built in speakers or microphones....there are monitors that can have speakers or mics built in though
