Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

My D600 internal microphone goes out all the time-Help!!!

My internal microphone has been out for a long time on my Dell Latitude D600 and I can't seem to fix it. The troubleshooting goes through the steps but it doesn't tell you what to do if the tests don't work. This is an internal Sigmatel microphone. Please Help!!!

I have had this issue before and it has always "fixed itself" after a reboot or two but it's been a while since it worked.

Does your caps lock light shine ?( the caps lock light is attached to the internal microphone. its on top the caps lock light. the little hole.) the only way to get it working is to:1. get the drivers for the mic.2 the mic wont work unless your caps lock light works so youllhave to kinda shift around the area

Check you BIOS settings. How old is your laptop and what version of Flash Player is on your computer?

    I believe its F2 when the computer is booting up.

Same problem here. The mixer only showed an external microphone. I managed to get my internal microphone on a Dell Latitude D630 with MS Vista working in the following way:

1) check your BIOS if the internal microphone is enabled
2) go to 'Control Panel' and click 'Sound'
3) select the 'Recording' tab
4) if the internal microphone is not in the list: R-click on external microphone
5) select 'show disabled devices', the internal microphone should now become visible in the list
6) R-click on internal microphone and click 'set as default device'

And you are done.

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!
