Default Internal Mic??? - 01-13-2009, 05:54 PM

I've just got my Mini and was looking through the manual. It mentioned that there is an internal mic located near the buttom of the trackpad. However, when I test it with the Dell chat software (mine comes with Ubuntu), it doesn't seems to pick up any sound. So I wonder if there's really an internal mic there and has anyone get it to work. Thanks

Yes there is one. It's actually on the underside of the unit, just behind the front center. A small hole in the case.

Using the Google Search bar at the top-right of the screen, I found this thread about getting over initial configuration for the microphone...


Does your unit have a webcam? If so, there's another channel to look at while poking around in the sound settings.

Good luck!

Thanks guys. It does come with a webcam. I don't have my mini with me now. Let me do a little bit more digging when I head back home tonight.
