    I would try to install another OS (e.g. WinXP) and see if the problem
    persists. If so, you could have your mic damaged.

    Try also to connect an external microphone, Vista would show you
    a window that you can use to select what you've connected
    (line-in, mic, ..., select mic).

    Have you gone to the Dell website and downloaded the driver for it?
    If the machine is under warranty, I'd be on the phone with Dell.
