Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook ?

I got a new dell notebook and the microphone hasnt worked

\015 I have a Dell Notebook that i got around 6 months ago. It has a built in camera and microphone. The camera works fine, but the microphone has never worked. ive tried changing all settings and highering the volume. Nothing has worked. I did a mic check on the settings and it said error -6. What does this mean and is there anything i can do to fix it?My dad bought it for me and i brought it to his attention that it doesnt work and to him its "unimportant" and "unneccesary" so he hasnt done anything about it.help would be appreciated.\015

Answers :

If the notebook is still under warranty, then get it fixed under warranty. If you try and fix it yourself you most likely void your warranty.
\015\012Before you send it off try these tests.
\015\012Try connecting an external mic to the mic port to see if that works.
\015\012Also try reinstalling the mic/sound driver.
Your Dell us under warranty. Go to Dell.com and work through the prompts to get them to honor your warranty and fix your microphone.
