1. sound driver 2. microphone settings in volume control applet 3. tap test (tap the area around the microphone and see if eg Sound Recorder picks it up) 4. external microphone
If you get to step 4 before you get anything then your problem is one of missing or damaged microphone.

Firstly, what Operating System came with you Inspiron 1521? It's either Windows XP or Windows Vista, my guess would be that it has Windows Vista (If you've not replaced the Operating System since you purchased it).
I would imagine that if it's not something simple like the volume of the mic being set to zero or muted, then it could be an issue with the drivers.
If you are running Vista, your best bet is to download the following drivers
Although it's listed as Intergrated Webcam, your microphone would be part of your built in webcam, so with any luck, installing the drivers from the link above should solve your problem.
If not just let me know, and I'll be happy to investigate further :-).
