I was using Windows Vista x86 and the microphone/speakers were working perfectly until very recently when I installed Windows 7 x86 on my Dell Inspiron 1525. Initially the microphone worked, but the volume levels were abysmally low, but soon enough that stopped working too. Now I can't get the microphone to work no matter what I try.
After reading alot, I found that installing the Sigmatel drivers available on the Dell website, (even though for Vista x86) would fix the problem. So I downloaded - http://www.dell.com/...oductCode=False and updated my chipset driver too.
I was able to install the Chipset driver but the Sigmatel driver fails to install returning an error - "ExitError.Error=Device Object not present, restart the system and run setup again.", after a few tries, it just gives the error that the driver is not meant for the hardware. After much searching on the web, I came across this goldmine of a forum.
It'll be much appreciated if anyone could provide any sort of help in getting the microphone to work again. Is there any specific custom driver that I can install for my laptop? I've tried searching on the forum a bit, but I really don't understand the driver codes. Any help or nudge in the right direction would be very very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
