Having problems with your Dell XPS 420 PC Desktop ?

My microphone not working on my dell xps 420 vista system

\015 In sounds/recording there is no audio device, i have tried to download the drivers but it says theres no device. it's the integrated mic jack on the tower i'm trying to use and there is no mic jack on the back\015

Answers :

Double click on the speaker and make sure that the mic does not have the mute box with an x in it.

I am pretty certain you have a card in your computer for it mentions a 7.1 speaker system.
If you put your service code in to do a search for drivers you will get the correct ones for your particular machine. Download install and reboot.
If you are not using six speakers and one sub woofer then the pink one in the back is the mic

The solution for VISTA was to go in and delete all of the\012associated drivers. Go to control panel>System and Maintenance>Device\012Manager>Sound and Video Game Controllers> Then uninstall all the drivers\012in this category including the Blue Tooth Hands Free Audio and Blue Tooth\012Stereo Audio and the High Definition Audio Device.

Next plug microphone into front jack of the Dell XPS 420.

Next restart computer while connected to internet. In my case the drivers were properly loaded\012and the microphone worked for the first time in 4 years.

Good luck
