RE: Dell Inspiron 1525 internal microphone
i got it fixed! i downloaded the IDT R261324 drive and it solved my problem.
Thanks for sharing that solution. I am putting in a link to the IDT R261324 (184.108.40.20667, A18) driver in case anyone else with an Inspiron 1525 wants to try it.
Note: it is an audio driver for certain Studio laptop models. It runs on Vista and Win7 operating systems only, not XP.
