Right click on the SigmaTel entry there and select uninstall. Put a check on remove this driver from the computer. Once done restart the computer and go to support.dell.com and click on Drivers and Downloads. Enter your system service tag and download the Sigmatel audio drivers and install them.

If the Arrey microphone is set as the default and you have uninstalled and resinstalled the drivers and it does not work in MSN try recording with the Windows sound recorder and see if it works there. To open the sound recorder click on start and type SOUND. Open sound recorder from the results. Incase the mic does not record even in the recorder it could be bad or have a loose connection. If in warranty call/chat with the Dell technical support. If the warranty has expired consult a local computer guy.

SOURCE: my dell inspiron 1525 webcam wont work with yahoo messenger

This is happening because the Dell webcam central is accessing the webcam at the same time as yahoo messenger. Click on start and click on Run(XP), Type MSCONFIG in start search (Vista) and you'll get the system configuration utility. Open it and go to the startup tab. Uncheck anything related to Dell webcam. Click on Apply and OK and restart the computer. If yahoo messenger shows a black screen uninstall Yahoo messenger and reinstall with the more recent version.

The built in mic on my dell inspiron 1525 does not work


Have you checked to see whether the correct settings have been selected for the microphone in the Control Panel>Hardware>Audio Devices page? Once you see which driver works (i.e., which one responds to your voice), right-click and set that as the default. Or you can try to set up the Speech Recognition program under All Programs>Accessories>Ease of Access, and try the different microphone settings till the onboard one responds to your voice. Perhaps the SigmaTel driver has been updated since you bought the laptop--go to the Dell Download site and download the sound driver for it, see if one of these helps!

Microphone


the external mic must be unplugged for it to work and you need to reconfigure the internal mic if it doesn't work... there should be an option for this under start>settings>control panel> audio> microphone

Built-in Microphone


Per the owner's manual:

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins9300/en/om/om_en.pdf

No, this system has no internal microphone.

You will need and external microphone to record/transmit audio. If you are going to do video conferencing, most high quality new webcams have a built in microphone in the webcam
