Title:

Internal Microphone not working?

Text:

The microphone on my Macbook Air has stopped working, which I figured out when I couldn't make any skype calls.

Have checked System Preferences -->Sound and increased the input levels but that doesn't make a difference.

The hinge on the macbook has broken, as a result the right side of the LCD is almost detached from the computer itself. Could this be a reason (although I have been using the mic successfully despite the hinge problem for a while) ?

Incidentally, i did drop the macbook a few days ago. Can anybody help me in fixing this problem myself?

Device:

MacBook Air 13" Models A1237 and A1304
