Laptop: Dell Inspiron N5110 Here is the problem: -Main problem:
After updating my laptop's drivers (every update DriverMax has found) I had many problems, but I fixed them somehow (with more "updates" if I remember correctly). That left me with one serious problem for me that I am not able to fix..
My laptop's microphone is ruined! (And I don't know which specific driver caused this problem)
When I try to record or speak to someone through Skype, it makes very loud and strange noises!
The other side can only hear those noises (Even I am able to hear them) and they are really a pain..
I have tried changing some settings on Skype...nothing.
I have changed several settings on IDT Audio Control Panel...nothing.
I have connected a headset and the problem is the same!
I tried to update the IDT driver (29/09/2011 - Version: 22.214.171.12441, A03) from dell website...nothing...uh wait!...something changed!
Now my headset's microphone is not working at all(!) and the problem keeps growing.. -Another problem:
I have another problem related to the laptop's speakers this time.
I am not sure if it is also a driver's problem.
When I am listening to music and increase the audio at over 50%, it sounds weird, like old speakers do, a lot of noise.
I did a search and many people with the same laptop model have the same problem and some of them are saying that it is a hardware problem.
I can listen to music using a headset with no problem at all.
Does this mean it's a hardware problem or can it be a driver problem again?
Thank you in advance.
