Inspiron 1525 Microphone VERY QUIET after Windows 7 installed?

This question is not answered

Basically, we installed Windows 7 Professional fresh on my laptop.  Everything's working great, except my mic is recording very, very quietly, despite the fact that the mic levels and mic boost are all at 100%.  If it's a driver issue, I'm not sure which one to DL.  Some help would be greatly appreciated! Much thanks in advance to anyone who comments. :)

  • I had the same issue when I upgraded. Everything worked fine except for the microphone, which you could barely hear.  I searched the Dell Support Downloads for laptop model 1525 sound drivers.  There was a download, took it, installed it, rebooted and everything is fine now.  File is R218148.exe
