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.

I think that you should reinstall the microphone's drivers... that could be the problem. If that isn't it, the something could be disconnected

good luck!!

I have dell inspiron 1318 with windows vista but my my microphone does not work ? if this laptop contain the builtin microphone then why it is not working ????


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

The built in microphone on my Dell laptop won't pick up sounds of any kind and I've gone through to configure the mic but nothing is working.


hey possible cause is the driver for your microphone is not yet installed, if you have a cd just reinstall the microphone driver, if you dont have, try to go to this link.http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

The Audio in my webcam central won't seem to work can anyone help me fix this problem when i first got my dell it seemed to work but now it doesn't and i want to record a video but the audio won't seem to...


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. 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.

Integrated webcam microphone error


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.

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

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.
