Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

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.

Does a Toshiba Equium A200 have a built in microphone?


Here are two different spec sheets for the A200-1V0 & A200-196. Neither one lists a "built-in mic" but both support external mics via 3/8 jack. Also there's always the possibility of using a USB mic.
A200-1V0
A200-196
Hope this helps, if so please comment, vote, etc.
Thank you.

Computer Does Not Detect Headset Microphone


Sound and Recording jacks stop working on the DV6000 series due to the ribbon cable running under the power button. when the power button is pushed it bends the flex cable and over time it breaks the connection rendering the front jacks useless you can buy a new upper button panel for about 20 dollars on ebay

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!
