DV2400 Conexant audio w/ HD smartaudio HD2 driver Cleared all cache, history, temp files... ran several anti-virus, spyware programs to make sure this isn't a virus
Ok, this is how I noticed the problem. I plugged in my iphone earbuds w/ mic into the microphone jack in the front and used windows sound recorder to record voice. It didn't pick up much of my voice but it picked up a radio station. If i unplugged the earbuds and hit record again, it only pick up static noise. Has any of you experience this problem? Pretty sure this isn't a virus...just something our laptop does.
I recently bought a product that works better with an external micorphone headset. This was my first time ever using one with my laptop. When I went through the set up process, the microphone was not picking up any sound and I could not hear anything through the external headset. I tried using both the microphone and headset port as well as different headsets with the same result. The headsets work fine on other devices. When I use just a plain headset connected through the headset port, I can hear just fine.
I went to Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Sound>Manage Audio Devices to troubleshoot, but nothing worked. I tryed updating the latest drivers and was told the latest are already installed.
The Product Name is : HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC The Product # (NOT serial number) is : B5R46UA#ABA The External Mic is called: IDT High Definition Audio CODEC
I just reinstalled windows 7 on dell inspiron 1525 and the wireless adapter isn't picking up any connections. When i troubleshoot the error it says 'turn wireless capability on' the switch on the laptop is on but the light isnt showing up on the laptop.
I checked device manager and there is dell wireless mini-card and it says it is working properly.
When the laptop is on and I pick it up to move it I would often hear a loud CLICK sound coming from the HD. It had me freaked out that something was loose or that the heads were scratching the platters.
I just came across an article explaining what this noise has been. It is the sound of the read/write heads parking because of the "Sudden Motion Sensor" built into the laptop. It senses the rapid movement when I pick up the laptop and then it parks the heads to prevent scratching the platters... that is the click sound of the heads parking.
The sensor is a tri-axis accelerometer that detects sudden changes in "position and accelerated movement".
Anyways, I tested this to see if it was the "sudden motion sensor" parking the heads: - first I confirmed that the sound would still occur when picking up the laptop and tilting it quickly while still on - then I checked the sensor's settings to see if it was really on by running a command I found in the linked article. - then I turned off the sensor (that command is also in the article). - then I tested by picking up the laptop again and tilting it quickly...
no more CLICK
I enabled the sensor again because it is better to have it enabled than to risk scratching a platter if I drop the laptop. I'm just happy to have found the source of the CLICK and to know it wasn't a faulty HDD.
I have an m1530 which I upgraded to 64 bit Windows 7. The default audio driver from windows update didn't allow me to use the microphone, so I used the Vista 64 Sigmatel driver from the dell site.
Because of a slight audio popping issue (many other people have discussed this) I updated to the IDT drivers for the m1645 as Black Russian recommended. Then I searched even further and found this list on laptopvideo2go:
I have a e1705, when I got it I had Windows Meadia Center but since then Ive had to format and Im using Windows XP Pro SP3 now and since I put this on,
I had the original drivers from Dell working with the Service Tag lookup on their website. I had to format again, and this time around, with the same copy of Windows, those drivers, and every other copy of the drivers I can find wont work
I need those drivers and software. I was looking around but I can't find anything (maybe you had luck). So If it is possible for someone who has already dealt with this to post links, it would be appreciated.
B.T.W - If there is another thread like this, send me messege (with a link of course) and delete this thread...
1. The damn CPU whining? I know everyone has it. Dell said last time I called that they're working on some way to fix it. The new A09 Bios didn't seem to do anything for me, or anyone else apparently according to dell's support forum. What's up with that?
2. My laptop wobbles on the top right and bottom left corners. it only wobbles if I use my 6cell batt, and it doesn't wobble w/ the 9 Cell. So does that mean the 6cell's rubber feet thing on the top right corner isn't high enough? Can dell fix that?
3. The "increase volume" media button thing isn't as responsive as the other ones. i have to press really hard to get it to respond. all the other ones i just tap it lightly, and it works.
Here's some questions that I know Dell has no clue what to do with:
4. I'm currently using Vista Ultimate on this only because I couldn't get my bluetooth driver and my sigmatel audio driver to work properly on XP. since dell hasn't released a xp bluetooth driver, i used WIDCOMM 5.1 stack, and the bluetooth headset and stereo headset drivers would disable the sigmatel drivers. really annoying. cmd51229 says he's gotten it to work:..........................
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.
I can't find anything allowing me to turn it back on anywhere. It's as if Vista doesn't detect it even being plugged in. Where should I start looking for an option to turn it back on or reinstall it? I have looked and looked and can't figure this out
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.
No matter what I do it will not take a microphone. The mic is working, I plugged it into an amp. It can't be the connector as I just got a new one today and tried it on the Aux input of a headphone amp.
This is absolutely ridiculous. I remember having this trouble before. I can't even seen to access "line in" as an option when recording anymore either. What's going on? I need to record some stuff and I can't use the crappy in built mic for that.
When I speak through Skype, my microphone is buzzing, and I sound like an old radio or something. But when I pull the AC out, my voice 100% clear with no buzzing! I can't figure out why. I have checked the settings, but there are no changes at all?
I have tried to update to all kind of Realtek drivers, and I have done several system recoveries -
