Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

I want to assign a new shortcut

I need a quick way to turn on and off my microphone with my Dell Notebook. It has a function key to mute the volume or turn it up/down. I would like to assign a new key, like f6 which isn't currently used, to "mute/unmute" the microphone.

To assign any new function you would need a software for it. Is a lot better to just use functions already on system, like Fn+F8 (on my Acer). Is just a key more.

    for the volume I can use the system setup functions, but there isn't one for the microphone already assigned in the system. This is what I need to create.

SOURCE: Volume buttons and mute/unmute buttons don't work

First open the Control Panel -> Keyboard Layout. Look for the dropdown list for different keyboard models. Scroll to the Dell models and try e.g. the Dell Mulimedia USB Keyboard layout. Stop the GUI with Ctl+Alt+Return, login again and maybe your multimedia buttons will work now.
and for more info contact http://tinyurl.com/m7ghqz
If there is no keyboard layout that fits your needs, you may download the programs keytouch and keytouch editor, which are very helpful creating your own layout.

How do you turn the sound up and down?


Hi Patricia,

What is the make/model of your laptop and what operating system are you using?
First is to look at your keyboard. All of your keys will have your main characters assigned to each key in bold, white letters, but some may have other characters or symbols in a different color.

25358410-xuob0sb0sjjt23zmtlvb05nb-1-0.jpg

This is a good example from a Dell keyboard where you have the volume keys above the numbers 7, 8, and 9 on the very top row (mute/volume down/volume up respectively). It's easy to see taht you simply hit these keys to mute, lower or raise your volume...very straight forward.

You also see that this keyboard has some smaller blue characters on the top row, set as the Function Keys. To access these you first hold the "Fn" key on the very bottom left of the keyboard (between Ctrl and the Windows key) and then press the top row to access the related function. I only point this out as some laptops have the Volume Up/Down set as such, where you will have to hold down and alternate key first (usually the same color) and then press or hold down that second key to activate it.

Good luck!

I have a dell laptop - inspiron 1564. i am getting noise through the speakers from the onboard microphone. How can i turn it off with out muting.


open the audio properties box by right clicking on your volume control and selecting the properties choice
where it lists all the devices, turn the volume level for the microphone all the way down. if that still does not cure the problem, then mute just the microphone by itself, that way the rest of your audio still works.

I have a Dell Latitude D600- 1.4 ghz Intel Pentium M, 40 GB hardrive, and my Volume control keys near the power button do not work. I have installed The Dell Quickset, but still it does not work. Please...


Do the Function keys work too or not? There are function keys that control the screen brightness, mute, volume, monitor swtiching etc.
If none of those keys work, download Dell's Utility software for the D600 here: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R171887&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=3601&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=5&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=7&fileid=233742
If all of the function keys work, then you may need the "power board" under the keyboard. It's a little circuit board that controls volome, mute and power. Available for eBay sometimes.
Hope this helps!

Microphone on Dell Inspiron 600M PC Notebook not working


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.
