Couple of thoughts:
1) is mute on?
2) is the volume turned too low?

- assuming you have XP for the following -

3) if you open the control panel and go to 'sounds and audio devices', make sure the volume is 25-50%. Click advanced button and put all volume sliders at 25-50%. Make sure none of the 'mute' boxes are checked.
4) Right-click 'My Computer' and click 'manage'. From the list at the left, click 'Device Manager'. On the list at the right, is there any items under 'sound, video, and game controllers' that have a yellow exclamation or red x on them? If so, you'll likely need to reinstall the audio drivers.

Here are the links for the sound driver Dell Inspiron 6400. You have to select the correct audio driver and operating system to run on your computer. If you are not sure download all the audio or sound driver and then install after download. No sound means you did not installed the sound driver or if installed but not working properly. Installing these software will update your sound then it will work after update or installing the sound driver. Have a nice day.

I cant hear anything with my internal mic or with my mic that i plug in for my dell studio 1535. Can someone help me?


I usually check the configuration at Volume control/sound control option(try between mic and line-in, the volume of the mic etc) and then test my mic with the Sound Recorder.

..Never failed me before, so hope it works.
