This might help. Goto the device manager and delete the device. Then reboot. It should be detected and reinstalled automatically. If it doesn't, the hardware is broken.

Other things to check are in the volume control. goto properties, recording, and see if the mic is selected and up.

The buelt in mic is not working


The inspiron 1501 doesn't have a built-in microphone.
It has a microphone input though, so just any external microphone should work.

Microphone Issue


Try the sound settings, there may be a seperate slider for the mic. Or failing that has it got the driver software for a mic.?
Sound settings should be in start,control panel,audio devices.

Sound is ok i hv mic problem


If you install the correct drivers, the audio device should work fine. That includes the microphone if present. Check your sound recording settings in Vista to make sure all the device selections, recording levels etc. are set okay.
Then try recording with the Vista sound recorder to verify.
