Hi Kwstas_chris,
                                    
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issues with microphone not working on your Lenovo  G50-75 laptop.
 
Go to Control Panel,click on Hardware and Sound Click on Sound then you devices should come up ; speakers, Digital Audio, and headphones plug your headphones in, then select headphones at the bottom and select set as default option !! then when you disconnect your headphones it automatically switches to the speakers and when you plug them back in it automatically will switch to headphones!!
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if the issue persists!
                 
Best regards,

I have had Windows 8 since last November or December and only until recently I have had problems with the headphone jack. My laptop is Dual boot between Linux and Windows 8. Linux was put on after the Windows 8. I know there isn't anything physically wrong with the jack itself, because the headphone jack works perfectly fine in linux. I have tried to search the internet for solutions and I haven't found anything that is helpful, so I have come here.
My laptop is a Dell Inspiron N5110 that came with Windows 7. I had a few problems with drivers when I first put Windows 8 on the laptop. The display driver needed an update, but that was easily fixable. I don't think that this is a driver update problem because the headphone jack DID work, just recently has it stopped working.
I have tried to go into the device manager and search for driver updates, nothing. I am attaching link to a picture of my device manager incase it is helpful:

Since the Windows 10 anniversary update my headphone jack no longer works. It worked fine until then. Now, when I plug headphones in the system recognises the fact and a message pops up saying  'you have just plugged a device into the audio jack', but no sound comes through them. If I unplug them, the message is displayed that I have unplugged them. I have tried 3 different sets of earphones, so they are not the problem. Anyone else had this issue and come up with a solution?

This happened when I first upgraded from Vista to 7 32-bit last year, when the front output jack stopped working, and I ended up getting an extension cord to travel from the rear port.

Now I've upgraded again, and none of them work. I've got up to date Realtek codecs.

Any help is appreciated. I know I need to give more information, but it's 3am here and I can't for the life of me think what it should be.

Thanks in advance

I tried everything, something isn't right here all of them don't fix my problem. I tried to restore to early time before I update it, it didn't work. I tried to follow every single instruction from the basic setting, still doesn't work. THIS IS WINDOWS FAULT, their market share is going down and they do little trick to make money. I tried to contact support and it says, "charge may apply." ONLY BECAUSE I HAVE OEM in my ****ing product ID.

My hardware is TOTALLY FINE, I believe yours too. WHY I know mine is fine? BECAUSE I USE UBUNTU ON THE SAME DEVICE! Open Source is your friend, you can trust it.

HI there I am having a peculiar problem. The right-side USB port (the one next to the Ethernet port) of my 3rd Gen X1 Carbon (model 20BT) has stopped working. Windows reports two USB controllers, and Linux does the same. The ethernet port works as expected. I even replaced the USB/RJ45 system card and the problem persists: The Ethernet port works, the USB port does not. No peripheral is being recognised (I have tried a wireless mouse, a usb flash drive and a Yubikey) and no power seems to be available from the port.  I was thinking that if there was some issue with the motherboard then one of the USB host chips would not be recognised, but this does not seem to be the case. I am now thnking whether it would be worth it to replace the motherbaord or just purchase another (used) machine. The warranty has expired. Any ideas? Thank you! Frixos

So the other day i was spinning a fidget-spinner whilst watching a video on my laptop but then the spinner dropped and hit the keyboard, and when this happened the screen went completely black and there was this terrifying loud grinding noise like the laptop was screaming in pain or something, then i held the power button until it shut down. And then when i restarted the computer everything seemed fine until today when i realised the headphone jack isn't working. I've tried it with two headphones so far. How the heck could this happen? are Dell laptops so fragile that a fidget-spinner could permanently damage it? or is there a fix somewhere that i'm missing.

Hello, When I plug in my headphones right after a restart they work just fine. except for when i unplug the headphones and then plug them back in they decide to not play any sound. same happens when i mute the headphones while playing music and try to unmute. and i know sometimes when you mute you have to bring the volume all the way down and then turn it back up and it'll work but it's not doing that anymore. the computer recognizes the a device was plugged into the jack but no sound comes from them. the only solution i have found is restarting my laptop everytime this happens which is really annoying. I've gone to the control pannel > hardware & sound > manage audio devices. and i can see that the realtek hig def speakers are playing the music. theres no headphone icon or anything. i'm worried its a hardware issue but that also wouldnt make sense because i have no problem after a restart. please help. it's very frustrating

There's this annoying white noise on my left speakers(Logitech X-540 Speakerset), though I think it's not my speakers that are causing it, but something else, because when I connect my iPod to my speakers there's no white noise.

So I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to get rid of this noise

A:White noise on left speakers/left side of headphone

Sounds like either a driver malfunction or more likely a failing sound card. Most of the stuff below (Windows & Programs) wouldn't likely be causing problems. I'd be willing to bet it's a hardware problem (due to it only being one side).

Figure Out What's FailingIf you're using a secondary sound card
*** i.e. you have a second built in one on your motherboard, enable that.
If you still hear the sound on a different card, then it's something within Windows and not a problem w/ hardware.
If you don't hear the sound, then it's something w/ drivers or your hardware.
If you don't have an extra sound card, see if you can find/buy one Replace DriversDownload & Install a Program like Guru's Driver Sweeper
Uninstall your sound drivers w/ Driver Sweeper
Reboot
Download and install the latest drivers for your sound card.
RebootIf the sound is still there and you couldn't test a secondary card you're likely dealing with either a hardware failure (most likely with sound only happening in one speaker) or something in Windows failing.

Repair WindowsIf you want to try to fix windows, you can do the following:
Run an elevated Command Prompt and run this command:
sfc /scannow
Peform a system restore
Perform a repair install.Test to see if a program is causing the problemType msconfig into start menu search and hit Enter
Go to the startup tab and disable everything.
Restart computer
Do you still hear the sound?
Yes -- Not a program
No -- A program is likely causing the problem.If no... Read more

I have a 5th Gen X1 Carbon that the left USB port only provides power on. I can charge my phone but I cannot use any data or peripheral device. I've been all over the forum/net and have seen this question a hundred times but never an answer. The USB on the right side functions normally.  The laptop was wiped with a clean Windows 10 image. The Lenovo System Update software is installed with all updates installed. The Lenovo Service Bridge says there are no updates required for drivers. I have removed all of the USB drivers and rebooted. The USB and Always On are enabled in BIOS (hence power).  Does anyone have a good fix for this not working?

A:Lenovo Y50-70 USB 3.0 ports stopped working suddenly

hi haemming,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try the following:
1. Boot into the BIOS by continuously tapping F2 on boot-up. Once in the BIOS, hit F9 to load factory default settings then hit F10 to save and exit (this reloads the hardware configuration of the machine). Once inside Windows, uninstall the USB 3,0 driver (Device Manager > Universal Serial Bus Controllers) then scan for hardware changes.
 
When the USB device comes back, try to test your phone or any USB device (e.g., USB mouse, flashdrive, etc.) and observe.
 
2. If same problem, try to power down the machine > press the OneKey Recovery button > select System Recovery and test if the mouse will work on the USB 3.0 port
 - Sample image
 
Alternatively, you can also hold the Shift key then restart Windows and observe if the USB mouse will work on the Windows 8 Advanced Options.
 
If none of the above method works then I recommend you contact the lenovo helpdesk and report your findings as the USB 3.0 port is definitely malfunctioning and requires service.

I have put this in the virus section rather than hardware because this problem has appeared on my friends computer too. Actually his was first to have the problem. He thought it was his headphones and bought a new pair still nothing doing. I thought it was his system because he had dropped it, but then my system now is experiencing the same symptoms. I have tried a speaker test without headphones and the built in speakers play both channels properly it is only through the audio jack that this problem occurs. It plays the left channel normally and the right channel lower and through the left side also. I have tried a safe mode system restore and reinstalling the audio drivers. The other symptom that I am experiencing is with the WPD driver regarding my external USB 2.0 card reader not reading cards. I had the same thing with the built in SD card reader too but fixed it with a driver reinstall, but I can not find a download to reinstall the WPD and uninstalling then reinstalling does not work. The error is code 10 device cannot start.

Both are ASUS laptops his a K53T mine a X53U. I am assuming it is a virus and not a buggy windows update that is causing this. Please let me know what you need from myself in order to help me fix this problem like a Hijack log and anything else that you need. Thanks. If I should try asking in hardware first please let me know too. Thanks and have a great day.

Also if i wiggle the the headphones jack inside the pc it somtimes will play properly for a split second then go back to playing on one side.

It looks like, with the "High Definition Audio Device" that you only have the basic function Windows installed sound drivers.

Try installing the PC Vendor's sound driver. Same way for HDMI install the Video Card vendor's drivers.

So today when I go to plug in my headphones into my laptop, the video I was trying to watch today still is playing through the main speakers. I tried multiple pairs of headphones and it still didn't work. The volume coming from the speakers doesn't even shut off, it just keeps playing even though I have headphones plugged in. Any suggestions?

It is recommended to fill out your system specs. I have no idea what your system is or what audio driver/manager you are using.

If you have a realtek HD audio card- Install the audio manager, and set it to allow setting to pop up when jacks are used. That way you can tell it if you inserting headphones,mic, etc, and it will mute the external speakers and use the headphones-otherwise it plays out the speakers (this is common if you have a realtek card, and use the default Microsoft hd sound driver/software codecs. You may also note the "volume knob" does not work)

If you have a realtek card install the realtek driver/audio manager here:http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...&GetDown=false

Well, I have a new computer. And I recently bought a Headset & Microphone, to play games with. It was all working perfect, until my brother plugged in the Headset plug, into the microphone port. And I disconnected it because it was wrong. Then, when I went to plug it into the Headset Port, it wouldn't read.

I've checked the headset to see if it was the plug, but it wasn't. I opened my computer to check if the connections to the port are okay, and they are. I believe it might be a software issue, but not sure as to what to do now.

Many thanks if you can help me.

I tend to think it's a hardware problem, but to make sure open up your Device Manager and expand all of the +'s. Look for yellow exclamation points. That would indicate the problem device. Also check your sound and microphone configuration. I know this link is for skype, but it addresses the same problem and has pretty detailed solutionshttp://www.skype.com/help/guides

Since  "Sound"  did recognize my headphones when plugged in, I changed it to the default and it played through the headphones and cut the sound from the speakers.  When I unplugged the headphones, the sound went back to the speakers.  Yay!!  thank you all for the help.

Hi, I have an HP Pavilion 17 Notebook PC. Over the past few months my headphone jack has not been working properly. It started off with the headphones having to be held in a certain place to prevent sound coming out of the speakers at the same time as the headphones (I have tried every pair of headphones i own) . Over time, this has been getting worse and now, sound comes out of the speakers regardless of whether i have any heaphones plugged in. The headphone jack is really wobbly and i'm assuming i'll need to take my pc to a repair shop?Thanks in advance

I have just tried my headphone jack for the first time and the sound does not come through them. They still come out of speakers despte the headphone being plugged in. I have tried the headphones on other devices and they work fine. Looking on YouTube I have updated the drivers  and then put my headphones in the headphone socket, and checked the Sound driver (Realtek HD Audio) on the "Playback devices" tab -  it shows a headphone icon with a red down arrow next to it with a description "Realtek HD Audio 2nd Output" and "Not Plugged In". How do I get this socket to "plug in"  ? Or is this a hardware problem ? Thanks in advance for anyone's help.
