Question about Dell Latitude D410 Notebook

1 Answer

No more mic

Hello Fixya,

Last week I was using skype with my built in mic. I have a inspiron 1525 Dell laptop. My voice kept falling away for the other person so under control p - hardware and sounds - manage audio devices - recording, I had two mic's there. I guess one internal and the other external. I set the external one as default (SIGMATEL high definition audio CODEC) and the other one dissappeared and I can't find it back. I have tried finding devices, downloading from Dell website, reinstalling drivers and restarting my comp, etc and nothing is working. I am wondering how to find my mic back. Can you please help me?

ps. I only have one mic under recording now: SIGMATEL high definition audio CODEC and had two.

Thank you very much,
Marlies

  • Hi, the best "option is to perform a System Restore," select from Control Panel or the "Accessories (System Tools) in the "All Programs," Start Menu. Select the (Date of recovery prior to the change); at least a day before to make sure the "Restore" will not miss any changes on the day of the change. Follow all the instructions "carefully," be patient, and "DO NOT RUN!" any programs during or after the System Restore is complete! The computer will "restart," system restore is still making corrections. "I Hope for the best, rating the solution is appreciated, thanks.

How do i find my web cam on my dell inspiron


Most laptops that have built in web cams have preloaded software in the programs. If you don't have the software anymore you might be able to download it from Dell. Or you could use third party software. Skype will work.

My computer is dell insprion 1525 model. when i speak use in speaker that time voice is comeout changed. if female speak comeout that voice is male.


If you are using the Dell Webcam then i know what's wrong. Go to the Dell Webcam Consol click effects. If "Enable Audio Affects" box is checked then uncheck it. This takes away the audio affect you are hearing in speakers.

Hope this helps :)

The built in mic on my dell inspiron 1525 does not work


Have you checked to see whether the correct settings have been selected for the microphone in the Control Panel>Hardware>Audio Devices page? Once you see which driver works (i.e., which one responds to your voice), right-click and set that as the default. Or you can try to set up the Speech Recognition program under All Programs>Accessories>Ease of Access, and try the different microphone settings till the onboard one responds to your voice. Perhaps the SigmaTel driver has been updated since you bought the laptop--go to the Dell Download site and download the sound driver for it, see if one of these helps!

check your microphone settings. first, be sure it is plugged in and on. next, in skype, connect to a call. in my version (3.8.0.188) you can check you mic and speaker settings by pressing the headet icon at the lower part of the screen. i use windows default settings but try others to find one that will work. you can chat with your contact to hel ptroubleshoot the call.
