Microphone I used the 6400's built in microphone up to recently and am now not able to do so. I now have to use an external microphone plugged into the mic jack. Would like to know how I might be able to get back to using the internal mic.

    jomama5509,

    does that mean that the 6400 has an internal microphone?

    I used my built in microphone when I purchased it. I sent it in for repairs, a new hard drive and never checked it until recently and could not find the microphone driver. There is an external jack that works but I would like to use the built in mic.

The external mic must be unplugged for it to work and you need to reconfigure the internal mic if it doesn't work... there should be an option for this under start>settings>control panel> audio> microphone

Where is the michrophone on del inspiron 6400?


Hello,

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.

There is a built-in microphone located beside the built-in web cam. however, if the microphone should stop function, or you want to use an external mic, there is a mic input jack beside the eSata/USB port.

I get a quiet signal when using the mic.


Hi,

You should use the mic input of your computer.
If it's not there, use a microphone pre-amplifier.

Does she have a microphone plugged in? I dont think the 6400 has a built in mic.

If you're sure your mic works then open the sound mixer (click the speaker icon by the time in the lower right) and click "options" then "properties" and select recording. Click ok. Make sure "microphone" is selected.

Hope this helps!

Micro phone not working in my DELL Inspiron 6400


There is NO built in microphone with this laptop. You will need to purchase an external microphone and plug it into the mic in socket.

I believe you need a stereo mic. This will have two black rings around the male input. When you plug it into the camera, it will "disable" the built-in mic. I don't believe it will matter if the attenuation is on or off.

Built-in microphone does seem to work


The only way to really tell if the buit in mic. is bad is to replace the mic or plug another one in the external mic. jack. Also use the input (red and white) RCA jacks and input a signal from a stereo or TV into it and record. If still no sound then its probably Bad capacitors in the sound processor Printed Circuit board. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but mostly all of older camcorders suffer from this breakdown fault. Good luck
