I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. I used Skype ages ago and returned to it a couple of days ago. No one could hear me. I researched for 20 hours, downloading drivers, checking EVERY setting possible and NOW have got the ANSWER. The wires in the Microphone Array are fatigued. My microphone works perfectly when I tilt my lcd screen half way down. Go to Webcam Manager, Tools, Audio controls, the microphone has 2 bars which go green when you talk into it. Tilt your screen and watch the bars go up and down. Not the answer you probably wanted but as long as you skype with your screen half tilted everything is good to go

If possible could you check output voltage of the charger with a multimeter? If you can get output voltage, then might be something wrong with laptop battery charging circuit. Contact Laptop Repairing Engineer.

Try with new battery pack. It may be faulty RAM too.

Dell Inspiron... | Answered on Jul 11, 2013

you are experiecing with your CMOS battery so:

try taking the CMOS battery out
leaving for 30 seconds
make sure it's all unplugged from the wall
do that first
then press the power button after the 30 seconds
to drain all power
then put battery back in
and plug in and turn on

and if still problem remains then you need to change your CMOS battery.

please test the adapter first, measure the output from the adaper see what is the exactly voltage, and if the voltage is NOT there the problem can be the adapter. Otherwise if there are the problem can be battery. However use the software diagnostic coming with the computer, and use for to test the battery chargin.

God bless you
