Microphone on Dell Inspiron 600M PC Notebook not working

I have been trying to use the microphone installed in the Dell Inspiron 600M but it's not working. It is the little hole above the volume control. I have all the volume up and done all I can to make loud sounds for it to pick up but it won't work. Any solutions?

    When I try to Skype , it says my mic is low or muted. Sometimes people can hear me if my iTunes are playing (but that is only sometimes, they usually cant even if my music is playing)

    Does the Dell 600m even have an internal microphone?

If your Inspiron 600m had a mic that you used in the past and it is no longer working, please try to press the mute/volume down/up buttons near where the whole of the mic is located.  
If, after trying the above, 1 or all 3 buttons do not work, the problem is with the board that is right under the power button (small 2-3 inch length circuit board). It is not making full contact on its connector below. If you put pressure on it (just above the power button) it will all respond. I had the same problem on another 600m laptop.

I have 2 600m computers. One has an internal mic and one does not, though they both have the little hole. On the one without the internal mic, I have to reboot in order to use the mic. What I am saying is the mic only works after a fresh reboot, and then it will generally keep working for a good long while. On the other, I have to reinstall the audio driver periodically to keep the mic working. I keep a shortcut to the audio driver installation program on my desktop and any time I need the microphone and it's not working, I quickly do a driver reinstall. Then the microphone will work for several days usually. I have talked to Dell many times about this problem and they are stumped. I even had 2 new mother boards installed under warranty and a complete Windows reinstall. No change.

You'll need to download the driver for your microphone.
After you've tried that then there's something wrong with it.

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.
