    The mic wire on an m285 travels under the hinge cover, there is a good chance it could be broken. I regularly take these apart and half of the wires are cut by the hinge and or cover.

The mic wire on the M285 travels under the hinge. Often when I loosen the bezel, the wire underneath is cut.

Hello, I just purchased the C01U USB mic and whenever I test or record with it I get this really high pitched noise. but when I tap the Mic is goes away and then slowly fads back in after a couple of...


1. Try the microphone on another USB port and check.
2. If not OK, try the microphone on another computer and check.
3. If OK on another computer, re-install it or recover the O.S. from a backup.
4. If on another computer the same problem exists, the microphone could have a internal control defect.

Internal microphone not working


I have Dell Inspiron 1520 and I have issue to built in microphone is not working. I tried to execute the Sigma Tel driver from Dell Driver and Support website but prompted 'Exit Error; Error : Device Object not present, Restart system and run setup. Then, asked Dell support to help and they are not really helpful, after System Restore and drivers upload and finally asked to reformat the laptop........

Anyway, this is what works for me.

1) Download the Sigma Tel driver from Dell Support Drivers page and save it in Desktop
2) Shutdown your computer
3) Start your computer and press F8 at the Dell Logo page
4) Select Safe Mode (not others)
5) Proceed to work on Safe Mode
6) Right-click the Sound icon and activate the Sound icon
7) Select Recording device.
8) If still not working, then execute the Sigma Tel driver that saved in desktop

then, shutdown the computer and start as normal, you may see the system able to detect the built in Microphone then.

Hope it will work the same for you too..!!

Dell dimension4600. microphone does not work. I have a portable microphone connect to the pink mic connection.


it might be a bad mic or it may be your mic settings
its worth looking into, try connecting a audio source to it when you are configuring it and have the volume control for the microphone (on the playback section) so that you can hear it when it starts working

I had this problem too. My built in mic wasnt working, but i went to the list of programs (Classic view of the start menu) and under the program folder TOSHIBA > Speech System it'll have a choice "Configure Microphone." After I went through that, it worked fine. Make sure you restart your webcam software though after you've done that if you had it open like me. Hope this works!
