Microphone not on in Hangouts?

Well silly me. About a year ago, my wife bought an Apple Ipad and I was being smart and bought a Chromebook. We went to Europe and I used hangouts, with no trouble, to coordinate travel plans etc. with friends there. Later, I did the same around the States. But CBook was crashing and constant problems (my wife was laughing at me) so I sent it to Samsung repair. When I got it back, the mic in hangouts wouldn’t work. I did not change any settings in Hangouts before Samsung repair (no need). I’ve been trying Ninjas but we’re about 10-12 emails now with no result. So I thought to try some forums. I have a lot of screenshots if they will help.

Does anyone know how to enable (turn on) the mic in Hangouts………………short of a hammer or WD40?

Click on Settings in the top right. Make sure you have the correct Microphone selected. To test your microphone, speak into it and you should see the volume bars change over the camera feed. Click Done once you've set your microphone settings correctly.
