Question about Dell Inspiron 1521 Notebook
I have a dell inspiron 1318 with an integraded webcam and microphone. The webcam works but the microphone doesnt. Ive gone to settings put the volume up and changed it to microphone array (the one it's supposed to be) when i did a microphone test it said that it failed with a microphone error of -6.
please help on how to fix this
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.
