Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook
I am having an issue with getting my microphone to work for my Dell Webcam. In the Webcamp app, the audio source is set to off : the "move" link cant be clicked and the audio source control drop down box only has ONE option which is SigmaTel High Definition Audio. In all of my other applications (skype, speech recognition, tango, etc) the microphone works fine but I'm figuring a different mic is being used. I've attempted going into the "recording devices" box in my control panel and changing the set default microphone but when I test it I cant hear anything even in the control panel. I can record videos in the webcam app but they have zero sound. How do I fix this?

I have a Dell 1545 with Dell web cam central & I've had this issue. The problem is that Dell web cam central installs it's own microphone settings onto your laptop called something like Dell web cam Live!. This isn't the built in microphone in my laptop & maybe not yours either. You have to change the settings for your computer system & Dell web cam central. Go to start> control panel> sound> recording .. on mine there is an option for Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" ... that is the built in mic. You want that for your default & apply it. Also .. as a side note .. I disabled the web cam central Live! microphone completely from this window. Then open Dell web cam central & go to the "Record Video's" option. In the middle of this is an orange button with a video camera icon. Next to this on the same button is a little arrow pointing down .. click that. Under microphone .. choose Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" just like the sound option in control panel. I've done this & it's completely fixed. I can record videos with sound & use my built in mic in voice/video chat.
