Microphone Won't Work

I have an external headphone and microphone set plugged into my Latitude and the headphones work fine but the microphone won't. Previously the microphone worked fine up until a few days ago and now it won't work at all. The drivers are all updated, the sound is not turned off, the microphone is not muted, etc. I've tried all of the regular troubleshooting for this but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions?

The Laptop has 3 Ports on the side- Pink,Green,Black
Pink Port is LineIn for an external device player jack



Green Port is LineIn for the Microphone jack

Under device manager where to locate microphone option


Your microphone would only show up under Device Manager if it is a USB microphone. If you are using analog, 2.3mm jack (looks like a headphone jack only red), then you won't see it there.
For WinXP you want to be looking under Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices to see and configure settings for your speakers, microphone, etc.
What is shown under Device Manager, if you aren't using a USB microphone, is the sound card. This is because your headphone and microphone ports are connected to the sound card in your computer.

Hello there, my mic won't work.


The external microphone input is most likely dirty and causing the internal microphone connection to be disconnected. The mic socket is at the front edge next to the headphone socket. try cleanig with a vacuum cleaner first to clear any dust and fluff. Then use a cotton bud and cleanig fluid e.g. WD40 or contact cleaner, or CD cleaning fluid.

Microphone of Dell latitude D610 not working


The D610 has two audio jacks. The one closest to the monitor has a picture of a microphone above it, and the one closest to the user has a picture of headphones above it. Do you have your microphone plugged into the correct jack?

Losing sound when plug in mic


You are probably plugging the mic in the wrong port, you should plug it in the other port looks the same.
I think the port that you are plugging in your mic is of sound (headphones).

Headphones w/ built-in microphone. Can both work with one jack?


the simple answer is No. The long answer is your laptop/computers headphone output and mic input are completely separate on the sound card. Meaning there are no tie to the audio in on the heaphone lines, and vise versa on the mic/line in. Sorry to disappoint.
