Having problems with your 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.


Answers :

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
