Well either it doesnt have i mic built in or its been broken or filled with dirt so no 1 can hear you. do you now where the mic is positioned on the laptop if so try cleaning it and if it doesnt work you might have to buy a mic to plug into it.

Have a dell inspirion 1521 and My Microphone does not pick up any sound. Please Help


Firstly, what Operating System came with you Inspiron 1521? It's either Windows XP or Windows Vista, my guess would be that it has Windows Vista (If you've not replaced the Operating System since you purchased it).

I would imagine that if it's not something simple like the volume of the mic being set to zero or muted, then it could be an issue with the drivers.

If you are running Vista, your best bet is to download the following drivers

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R173082&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1521&servicetag=&os=WLH&osl=en&deviceid=15135&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=0&libid=17&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&source=-1&fileid=235336

Although it's listed as Intergrated Webcam, your microphone would be part of your built in webcam, so with any luck, installing the drivers from the link above should solve your problem.

If not just let me know, and I'll be happy to investigate further :-).

The built in microphone on my Dell laptop won't pick up sounds of any kind and I've gone through to configure the mic but nothing is working.


hey possible cause is the driver for your microphone is not yet installed, if you have a cd just reinstall the microphone driver, if you dont have, try to go to this link.http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Check your sound settings, the settings of the software that you're using or might as well uninstall and reinstall the sound driver.

My webcam audio problems


Your laptop should have an inbuilt mic. You can check in the volume control properties to see if the mic is muted.

You can check that by double clicking the volume icon on the bottom right of the screen

My microphone stopped working and its built in


I had thesame problem on a brand-new Dell laptop. The solution is to intall IDT STAC9228 Audio Driver (file R204473.exe), which can be downloaded from Dell web site (http://ftp.us.dell.com/audio/R204473.EXE). This solved my problem with not having mic when using Skype.
