External mike doesn't work

Using a Dell Inspiron 9300. I want to use an external mike, but when I plug it into the jack, the computer doesn't see it. I've tried a new mike, with the same problem. When I use a headset (plugged into a USB port), the mike works (I rather use an external mike instead of a headset, because it's a nosebleed to get the headset and boom miked synched up).

I'm assuming you have Windows Vista. If so, you may need to change the default microphone, particularly if you have a built-in microphone on the computer.
1. Right-click the speaker icon next to the clock in the system tray.
2. Select "Recording Devices"
3. Select "Microphone" or whatever item you want to record with.

There will be a VU meter showing the input level. Try talking into you mike and see if the VU meter goes up. If so, you're good to go.

If not:
1. Click the "Properties" button in the screen mentioned above
2. Move the "Volume" and "Boost" sliders up.
3. Click "OK."
4. Check your VU meter again.

If this does not work it is possible you selected the properties for the wrong device. Click on another device and repeat the last 4 steps again.

How to fix a black screen on a dell inspiron 9300


Hook this up to an external monitor and see if you get video. The key combination to activate the external port, normal key that is, [FN]+F4. You may find that you have accidentally hit that combination and turned your monitor off. There are usually 3 positions for the monitor. Monitor and External, Monitor only, and External only so you may have to push the combination a few times. If the external monitor works your problem is your LCD and your best best is to take it to a shop and find out exactly which part is bad unless your familiar with how to open up the laptop and replace parts. If the External monitor does not activate, your only choice is to take it in or replace it. The video card on the motherboard has gone out if the External monitor doesn't come on.

My speakers don't work, I can plug in head phones or external speakers and they do work. it started after my son repeatedly pluged and unpluged the external speakers


There is a microswitch in the speaker jack of the system. It disables the on-board speakers when external speakers are connected. If sounds like that switch is stuck and the on-board speakers are staying disabled when the jack is removed.

The screen is not coming on at all. i connected


With the external monitor connected, try holding down the FN key and pressing one of the F keys at the top of the keyboard that has a Monitor icon on it. This should turn off the external screen and show the laptop screen. If you press it a 2nd time, BOTH screens should show up. If still blank, Press again until the External Monitor comes back on. Then go to www.dell.com/support and go to Drivers for your Model. Then download and re install the VIDEO or DISPLAY Drivers. This should fix it if its a missing driver. If STILL no display on the laptop, call Dell.

Dell inspiron 9300 doesn't charges i doubt its dc jack is broken , wanna fix it


If it works from DC jack try to change the battery first, for example to the same battery from another comp. If DC jack is broken and laptop don't works from wall outlet better change the jack in service center. Disassembling Dell is hard work... Cheers.

External Mike not working


Try this:

Double click on the volume icon on the system bar (lower righ corner, asuming you are using windows), this will display the volume controls. Now, click on Otions -> Properties and select "Record", MAYBE you will need to change the Mixing Device in order to do this, click on accept or ok and the volume panel now contains the recording volume controls, check the silence mark ys not checked for the mic, adjust your volume settings if needed. Good Luck!.

To get the original volume config, just do the same selecting the play option.

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
