Dell :: M1530: Disabling Internal Microphone (WinXP)

Apr 14, 2009

I always use a headset when I need a mic, so I want to basically disable the internal mic but I can't figure it out.

I'm running WinXP with the sigmaTel drivers on my M1530

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T440s - Disabling Internal Battery If Can't Boot

Jul 31, 2014

I just got my T440s a couple of weeks ago. I stupidly ordered it with only 4GB of RAM, thinking that I couple upgrade it myself if neccessary (and it would be much cheaper that way).
 
Well it seems 4GB definately isn't enough for my needs, so I ordered another 4GB stick. I installed it, plugged the machine in and powered it up. And was met with the tone for a memory error. Probably the module isn't seated correctly, but I suppose it could be faulty.
 
Anyway, you'll notice I said that I plugged it in before powering up. That means that the internal battery has been reactivated. I can confirm this because it will start (and give me the error) without being plugged in and without the external battery connected. So my problem is, how do I disable the internal battery again to remove or reseat the problem DIMM, since I can't get to the UEFI/BIOS configuration to disable it.

Dell :: Where/how Do I Enable The Internal Microphone On The Vostro 1510?

Dec 25, 2009

Im trying to record some audio using my new Vostro 1510 but I can't seem to select the internal microphone and it allows me use the 3.5mm plug with a external microphone.

I think the microphone is left to the webcam

But there is no selection in the Sound settings.

HP/Compaq :: DV9930US Internal Microphone Not Working

Jan 14, 2010

I have an HP DV9930US, and the internal/built-in microphone (actually, I think there are suppose to be two, surrounding the webcam at the top of the display) is not working. When I try it, I get no input, e.g., with Sound Recorder, I just get "noise".

I've tried this with the original Vista Home Premium 64-bit, Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, and Windows 2003 (I multi-boot), and I've tried every possible driver (including both the ones from HP and the direct Realtek ones) and setting that I can find, but no success ...

I haven't had a need for using the mic, so I don't think that I had tried it when I originally got the laptop, so I don't know if it ever worked...

I've partially disassembled the laptop, and confirmed that the microphone connector that goes from the display to the small (~1" x 1") board is properly connected. I haven't opened up the display bezel to check what's going on there.

Also, if I plug an external microphone into the jack at the front of the laptop, that does work.

Does anyone have a DV9930US, or something in the same series, and if so, does your internal microphone work? Did you have to do something "special" to get it to work?

Acer :: How Can I Disable Internal Microphone On Aspire 5920G

Sep 19, 2008

I've just bought an Acer Aspire 5920G and the Crystal Eye webcam works perfect with MSN and so does the internal microphone. However, I've started hosting a show on an Internet radio and the sound quality from the internal mic is too low. Therefore I bought a microphone that I plugged in the appropriate jack on the laptop (next to the jack for the headphones) but when recording or broadcasting it seems that my laptop uses BOTH the external and the internal mic. Could anybody tell me how to DISABLE the internal mic and use the external instead?

I've tried to disable the Crystal Eye from the Device Manager on Windows Vista but that doesn't solve the problem. I've also tried to modify the settings from the recording devices but the LineIn is not plugged in. I'd just like to plug a mic and use that instead of the webcam's one. Any help would be really appreciated as I have to host a show in 2 days and I don't have a clue on how to solve this problem.

Dell :: XPS M1530/WinXP/S-Video Out

Oct 13, 2008

I installed XP on my 1530.

Everything works great. Well for sake of full disclosure, I have paired my phone to the laptop via the Bluetooth, but haven't transferred anything. And I don't have an HDMI device to test the HDMI output.

Which brings me to my issue. I can't get video out of the s-video port for love nor money.

I tried the nVidia/Dell driver 174.31. In the nVidia Control Panel/Change the Signal/HD source, I only get one option - Component. I tried reverting the old nVidia Control Panel style based on this thread [url] No joy.

Next, I upgraded to nVidia driver 177.66 from laptopvideo2go.com (with the modded .inf file). Nd change.
I tried both an s-video cable, and the Dell s-video to composite/s/pdif adapter. Nada.

Since I'm running XP and a non-Dell video driver, I really don't want to try Dell support. (I had a 3 hour conversation over the definition of 'overnight' when I ordered this 1530).

What else can I try, check, look for? I have read threads that suggest it might be a bad mainboard, which would suck big-time.

HP Audio :: G60-535DX / Windows 7 Home Premium - Internal Microphone Inaudible

Dec 26, 2009

I am having problems with the internal microphone located at the top of the display on the HP G60 notebook PC, pre-loaded with the Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.  All OS, PC drivers and system ROM have been updated to current.
 
The sound it produces is at best barely audible or usually completely inaudible.  This is true when I use the internal Sound Recorder app as well as when I try to utilize Windows Live and Skype for either audio or video calls.  The fact it behaves this way using Sound Recorder proves it has nothing to do with firewalls or internet latency.  Also, I can hear and see the people I'm trying to communicate with just fine.
 
I first noticed the problem on an HP G60t system I purchased from hpshopping.com in early December 2009, which was a custom build and shipped to me.   I opened a case with support and they told me I would have to ship it back for repair or I could just return it.  I returned it.
 
Figuring I was just unlucky enough to get a bad system, I then went to Best Buy in late December 2009 and bought a second HP G60, this time a G60-535DX, which was similarly configured.  Guess what?  The exact same problem.
 
I have been researching these HP support forums and the customer reviews posted at bestbuy.com for the HP G60.  It seems many people are having the exact same problems.  I have tried all of the suggestions I have found, including the following, but nothing changes the fact the microphone quality on two HP G60 notebooks purchased from separate retail outlets / inventories is extremely poor and essentially non functional.
 
Updated HP Drivers and ROMUpdated Windows softwareUninstalled Conexant Pebble High Definition SmartAudio driver in Device Manager, then reinstalledUnplugged and removed battery, pressed power for 60 seconds, reassembledAdjusted Conexant Pebble High Definition SmartAudio driver property settings, including changing the Default Format, Exclusive Mode and Signal Enhancement settings.

Dell :: XPS M1530 Microphone Issue

Dec 4, 2008

I can't seem to get my headset to work with the M1530. I believe that I changed the settings for the sound inputs etc to get the headset to work with EVE, but now I'm trying to get it to work with CounterStrike Source. But I can get anything. I'm plugging it into the front mic port as it's a non-USB headset. I know the headset works as I've tested it on my PC. I'm pretty sure that it's simply a settings issue and that the port itself is fine.

I've tried reinstalling the sigmatel software but it didn't help.

Dell :: Integrated Microphone In M1530 Driver

Jun 10, 2009

I recently did a hard drive format to install Windows 7 64-bit and since then the integrated array mic on my M1530 has not worked. I am not sure but I believe the integrated mic is run by the sound driver.

I have tried to update my sound driver from the standard Microsoft High Definition Audio one to the Sigma Tel on the Dell drivers website but when I but when I try to install it says "Object not present please restart system and try again."

I have tried this countless times now and have tried uninstalling the MS driver before installing the new one but after restarting Windows automatically re-installs the High Definition Audio.

Acer :: 5930g AHCI Driver For WinXP

Sep 29, 2008

So I wanted to try out WinXP, to see the performance difference.

At first, the WinXP setup wasn't able to see the HDD. So I changed the SATA Controller Bios mode to IDE mode. (was AHCI for Vista).

I managed to install so have a dual booted system. However I can't use IDE mode for Vista. (must switch SATA bios each time).

Everything installed fine. Even got 3dMark06 increase of 150 points (not much lol). Oh and CrystalMark of 100K instead of 90K on Vista.

But I'd like to use AHCI mode for WinXP. Saw a link in a WinXP 5930g Guide, however that link was out of date.

The driver was called: "Intel(R) ICH9M M-E Family 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller - 2929 Driver".

HP/Compaq :: WinXP Drivers For My Pavillion Dv2000t

Feb 27, 2009

This dv2000t came with Vista installed but Vista is now broken and erased. I installed WinXP in place of Vista and I notice many of the hardware devices show yellow question mark icons in Windows device manager. The yellow question mark means no driver is installed for the device. I went to the HP driver download page (using a different computer because no network driver for the dv2000t) and I found MANY drivers for dv2000t hardware devices for which I have no driver. I can't tell which specific drivers I need. For example there are drivers for more than one type of network adapter but I don't know which adapter is in my dv2000t. Also the same situation for other hardware devices with missing drivers: the HP site has multiple drivers available and I don't know which one I need. OK

OK there is a service tag on the dv2000t which says:
SERIAL #: 2CE71317GD
PART #: RM669AV

Acer :: 5620z Vista To WinXP Pro With- On “IDE To AHCI” And “NO SOUND”

Nov 29, 2008

IDE to AHCI
Here is what I have as IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller
Intel ICH8M 3 port Serial ATA Storage Controller – 2828
Intel ICH8M Ultra ATA Storage Controllers – 2850
Primary IDE Channel
Primary IDE Channel
Secondary IDE Channel
Secondary IDE Channel
My laptop is a 5620z or 5620-4025 with a Hitachi HTS542512K9SA00 ATA Device. When I looked up this HD, it appears to be the standard SATA HD, or is it?

The original setup under VISTA, had ATA Channel 0 (twice) and ATA Channel 1 (twice) instead of the above Primary and Secondary IDE Channels.

The files to be used are in the requested C:Drive, yet I am reluctant to pull the trigger because I am not sure that I should nor am I sure which one of the above is the driver that is to be changed if when I make the change.

NO SOUND
One other thing has be going in circles regarding sound with the Realtek software. The Manager in the 3D Audio Demo works fine………….but……..the MultiMedia, which is most important, indicates that there is NO Audio Device.
