Any standard desktop microphone or headset with microphone will perfectly work. It requires simple crystal microphone which starts from few dollars. You can get from any IT store

Good Luck

Where is the michrophone on del inspiron 6400?


Unfortunately the Dell Inspiron 6400 is not equipped with a built in microphone.

You can use an external microphone having a 3.5mm jack by connecting it to the microphone connector found on the right side of the laptop.

Hope to have helped you.

Microphone input on Dell Inspiron B130 doesn't work

Your jack may have been damaged, or the apple mic may not be compatible. Purchase another pc compatible mic to check. Or you could try a multimedia headset with mic that plugs into your usb port. Take a look at RadioShack for headsets, I saw one in a store near me. and they should have them online.

Built-in Microphone

Per the owner's manual:

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
