Microphone does not work

I can't make my microphone of my Dell Latitude D600 work properly. The volume is desperately low even with the recording level all the way up. Does anybody know how to fix it?

Re: Microphone does not work

Make sure the Wave volume is turned up in your advanced settings and then check the level should be fine after that. If its not I would think It may be the Mic. did you try another Mic. If so Then you may have to uninstall the audio drivers and reinstall them I sure hope this help you out, Oh yeah I once had the same problem and Yahoo Messenger took over the Mic system and I had to unistall that program too, I don't think thats it but when you have things to try to diaignos one of them just may work for you. I sure hope that help you out Thanks for checking Here Bear001. If that don't work let me know

How do I find out what specs my sound card has? have a Dell lattitude 6400 and am considering buying software which requires Creative Labs Sound Blaster 16 or equivalent sound card supporting 16-bit...

Your laptop has a High Definition integrated sound card which will do just fine for low-to mid end recording. You'll just need to hook up your audio source to the Microphone input on your laptop using a standard DIN plug, just like the one used for headphones. Usually the plug is a stereo input so you can have full stereo recording using the Microphone input.

My built in mic was workin and now it dont work

Take a quick look through the steps below and see if any of it is of use to you.

Open volume control. (double click on it)

If it does not open you have a hardware issue.

If it does carry on below.

When the box with all the sliders opens check that none of the boxes at the bottom have ben ticked (untick any that are)

Click on OPTIONS (top left)

There will be a list and in here make sure that Volume Control, Wave, SW Synth, Aux, CD Player, Microphone are ticked.

Now click the Recording box and click OK

The slider box will swap to the RECORDING slider box
Select the one you want to use as the recording SOURCE (usually Microphone) and put a tick in the box at the bottom.

Now turn slide the microphone level about half way up.

Now click OPTIONS once again
Now tick PLAYBACK and then OK

You should now be back in the normal playback slider box
Double check that all the sliders are about half way up.

Check your MIC again

Audio on Dell Webcam Central And voice record isn't working

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. Also .. as a side note .. I disabled the web cam central Live! microphone completely from this window. 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.

My microphone in Dell Latitude D600 is not working

You need to go to this website and download all the driversfor your laptop as needed. These are only for the Dell laptopD600! I would concentrate mostly on the "Chipset" drivers. that should re-enable the board's Microphone input jack.

Good luck!
