I just fixed this exact problem. I went to the dell website and found the drivers for the inspiron 1318, Be sure to check "all related drivers for your product" and choose the correct operating system which was defaulted to "bios" when I did this. Then there should be an audio tab with two possible downloads. I downloaded the one labeled "IDT-Driver" and then my microphone started working.

My inspiron 1318 is less than a year old,the problem now is that my laptop does not on, it just shut down then it doesnt on. even i plug the charger. pls help thanks


Call Dell tomorrow... it will still be under warranty!

One thing to try is removing the battery and running it straight from the power adaptor. If it runs, you have a bad battery.

My microphone stopped working and its built in


I had thesame problem on a brand-new Dell laptop. The solution is to intall IDT STAC9228 Audio Driver (file R204473.exe), which can be downloaded from Dell web site (http://ftp.us.dell.com/audio/R204473.EXE). This solved my problem with not having mic when using Skype.

No, you'll have to buy a microphone and plug it into the microphone jack on the chassis.

If you buy a webcam, many have a built-in microphone in the webcam.
