Most laptops have a mic these days. Have you checked the settings in Duo, there is a switch which can switch it on/off

You want to check that your microphone is enabled on your laptop and in the operating system. For Windows, right click on the speaker icon in the system tray (end of taskbar) and go into Recording Devices. If you right click on a device you can enable it and make it default.

You could check that the microphone is working. When you go to the settings (on your machine) tap close to the microphone and you should see some green lines. If not, the microphone is not working. A reboot sometimes fixes this but do check the settings again afterwards.
