Hello, I have a Lenovo B40-80.  The internal microphone is not working.  I originally bought the laptop with Windows 7 in 2015.  I upgraded to Windows 10 (probably the Anniversary update??) shortly after purchasing the laptop.  I have never attempted to use the internal microphone or webcam until yesterday.  Neither the webcam or the internal mic was working.  I was successfully able to fix the driver for the webcam and now I can record video and pictures, but it cannot record audio.  I have tried updating the driver for the microphone without success.  Yes, the microphone is set as default and it is enabled.  There is no external mic plugged in.  Please help.

Hi, I've been using my new laptop for 2nd week and when I speak with someone in Skype or Facebook they complain that they first start to hear me and then the volume becomes lower and lower and they start to hear some sounds and sometimes my voice dissapears at all. One time I was recording a video of myself for an interview and the sound of the video was so low when i was listening to it that I barely heard myself even with 100% sound volume. Did somebody have the same problem?

Hi all, I've had this B50 for 6 months now and finally decided to update to Windows 10 (Machine Type Model 80LT). Now that I've updated, everything seems to work great apart from one thing... the Mic in Skype does not seem to work at all. The Mic works 100% fine in voice recorder but in Skpe the most I can get on the Echo test call when I scream at the laptop is a distorted buzz. Otherwise it's pure silence. Steps I've taken:1) Updated Realtek driver to 6.0.1.7553 found on Lenovo Support Site2) Updated driver through Windows3) Played around with every setting for recording devices (disable effects, let programs take exclusive access etc).4) Correct Mic is selected in Skype, tried the few settings possible in there which do nothing for me.5) In the Lenovo Settings App, tried all the settings in there too which don't do anything. When I do start a call on Skype - Lenovo settings highlights the Mic in Orange like it's been activated. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I need Skype for work and can't be having to use my phone for Skype calls all the time!

I purchased my Lenovo Ideapad 320-15IAP on 9/14/17 and received in 9/19/17. It runs Windows 10 Home (64-bit). Upon initial boot-up, I was prompted to do all the Windows 10 Updates. Everything worked fine. Yesterday 9/20/17 I called someone on Facebook Messenger and had no issues. Then, today, 9/21/17, I tried to call and suddenly they couldn't hear me. I went through the following troubleshooting steps: 1) Used internal troubleshooter. The worst it could come up with was that I had a "generic" audio driver.2) Opened up sound properties, checked recording devices. Realtek was a) enabled, b) the default, c) not muted.3) Used automatic system and driver update, reboot. (Note it only recommended a BIOS update.)4) Manually uninstalled audio device/driver, reboot, manually reinstall audio device/driver from Lenovo website, reboot.(All the while, confirming multiple times that the microphone was enabled, default, and not muted. Also checking in other programs to see if it would work.) Nothing has worked. I don't know if this is something I can fix at this point, or if there's a hardware failure and I need to return/exchange the laptop. The computer itself insists that everything is working fine, at least in terms of drivers, and it is recognizing the mic. Note I do have sound, just no recording ability with the internal mic. Help?

Recently received my U400 and the microphone worked great. However, at some point during a Skype call, my partner could not hear me very well and was only able to hear static on my end.

I checked my sound setting and under the "Recording" tab, the Conexant Internal Microphone was very active and "loud" (as if I was constantly talking). I went under properties and checked "Listen to this device" and all I could hear was static. I tried talking but couldn't hear myself. Lowering microphone level didn't seem to change the amount of static I hear from my microphone. I turned off mic boosts and enhancements, but it didn't change static.

Internal microphone is set as default device. Stereo mix is similarly active and loud. Driver version is 8.54.19.0. (up to date). Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Tried uninstalling driver and letting Windows install a new driver, but problem persisted. Pretty much can't use microphone to record, but it shows that it is active and is receiving a lot of sound somehow.

What should I do?

A:Lenovo U400 Conexant Internal Microphone Receives Static Input

The first thing to do, since you let Windows install a sound driver, is to reinstall the Lenovo supplied sound driver. Non-Vendor supplied sound drivers usually either do not work or do not work correctly, including the windows installed generic HD audio codec driver.

Check the Mixer/Audio settings whether Mic is turned on.
 
Depending on the used software it might happen, that it disables the microphone while ending the program (Skype, ICQ etc.)

The Built-in MICROPHONE does not work when making phone calls using Yahoo or even magic jack. After the first day of purchase it starting making a high pitch noise and so I turned decip down. I played with it for the next few days and well still no one can hear me on the other end.
Where is the Microphone located and is there something covering it when bought new that I need to remove?
Thanks guys!
P.S. I use a USB hub since I have several items that need to be connected to the PC.

A:Microphone Internal Not working!

To check your internal microphone is working use the windows sound recorder..... start, all programs,accessories,entertainment,sound recorder. Make a recording and check it records and plays back. If this works your internal mic is OK and I would start looking at a Yahoo driver or settings problem instead. From memory, the microphone is a small hole on the lid adjacent to the webcam.

Hello

I recently reinstalled Win 7 on my HP Probook 4530s, and have encountered a few problems since.
The latest is that the internal microphone does not seem to be functioning at all through any programs that would use it (Skype, sound recorder etc).

It does appear in the audio devices control panel but not in device manager (although I don't know that it should?), and it says its working correctly but obviously this is not so!

Additionally, the sound was behaving erratically as well - it often will not work unless I click the test button on the speaker properties page. If I leave the computer for any length of time I have to repeat this.

I have downloaded the only audio driver that is listed here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsuppor...Id=5060880&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=4058 but this does not seem to have any effect.

Anybody have any ideas?

Hello First off, I apologize if this isn't considered to be in the correct forum or not. I wasn't too sure, because I'm not exactly sure what the problem is.

My internal microphone currently is not working. I receive sound perfectly fine from everything, but my internal microphone will not record it. I have spoken into it, created loud noises, and have done whatever else I can, and it still does not pick anything up. My settings are enabled, yes. I've been to onto the HP site and have gone through step-by-step instructions over various solutions that could fix this, but none of it seemed to have worked.

I've tried a numerous amount of times to use the sound recorder and play it back, and when I do the sound does not show up.

Has anyone had this problem before? If so, how did they fix it? Or does anyone know maybe what it could be and any other possible solutions available?

Some information that might possibly be able to help (I'm not sure if it will or not, but it can't hurt.):

I have:
a Compaq Presario F730US Notebook PC
Vista Home Premium

the product number is: GR967UA#ABA

Hello Dotaquote,

Check both the Speaker volume Microphone settings and the Microphone settings themself as there are a few settings found in each one that affect recording...Have you also contacted Compaq directly about this as they are more equipped to handle support requests for there hardware? They also provide a 24h live chat support service.

Hi,
My internal mic didnt work, i suspect it not compatible with driver but not sure. Please help.
Did not record sound, doesnt work at all (including with google talk, skype).

Here's are the related info. Do asked for more info if not sufficient.

A:Internal microphone failure (not working)

Usually, the Stereo Mix is set as the default recording device. Then any device, mic, or line in, can be used. Also with Stereo Mix set you can record audio from the internet (what you hear on the speakers). Setting to Mic only limits what you can record.

Also, in Microphone properties, do you have the "Levels" set for the mic? If the level is set to zero you would not hear anything.

Hello there! I have been having issues with my internal microphone where it makes a loud noise on the other side  when I'm talking on skype. It has been like that since I got my computer and I had to buy an external one and then the issue was gone. External ones tend to break over time so I want to get the issue with the internal one fixed. I found an old thread ( http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/internal-microphone-not-working-properly/m-p/2158281#M30... ) In which the user had the same problem and he fixed the issue with the document he was provided with.

A:internal microphone not working properly

Try the steps listed in this document from HP. It has the most common solutions and steps to isolate the issue. It is possibly a hardware issue since an external microphone works without any issue, but let me know what happens with each step of the document as that will help determine if it is a hardware issue or not. Also, let me know the results of the steps in the Using Windows Sound Recorder to test the microphone section. If this recorded file also exhibits the same behavior, then it is definitely not any third party software causing the issue.

I recently upgraded my HP laptop to Windows 10 but discovered the internal microphone no longer worked after trying a video call on Skype. I have researched the problem thoroughly on the web and watched all the help videos I can find, but to no avail. I have tried updating the drivers from Realtek, uninstalling the microphone in devices and restarting my laptop, but nothing has worked. Before I updated Windows, the microphone worked fine. The 'intergrated microphone array' that I've seen discused on forums for this problem does not show up as in option in audio recoring devices. It doesn't seem to be recognised by my laptop at all in audio settings. In 'playback' the only device is Realtek speakers and in 'recording' I have set Realtek microphone as the default device but the internal microphone still does not pick up my voice as it used to. When I have troubleshooted the issue, I am told that my microphone is not plugged in, but this shoudn't be the case as I have never used an external microphone with this laptop. It seems that due to the Windows 10 update, my laptop no longer recognises the internal microphone. Does this mean I will have to buy an external microphone, or is there another way of fixing this problem? Any help with this issue would be much appreciated.

I have tried diagnostics also via Lenovo and nothing is showing as wrong. As I said all updates, drivers etc installed correctly via Lenovo and the system is running Win10. I also tried reinstalling the system to no avail. Fingers crossed. scotty66

Win7 Professional 64Bit German

Helllo Forum,
The problem sounds simple but its tricky. The internal microfone is not working.
I cannot find any related entry in the deivce manager.

Is there a maybe simple way to activate the Mikro like FN+X?
I already tried the standards such as "Start+"Mikro", rightclick on the speaker symbol...

Is there somebody who had and solved the same problem?

Iam running low on ideas...

Thanks

A:Satellite Pro P300 PSPCDE - internal microphone is not working

How did you test the internal microphone?

Usually the internal mic belongs to the internal webcam. So did you test this in connection with the internal webcam?
The preinstalled webcam software allows you to create movies and pictures. The movie can be recorded with the sound and the internal mic is used for that?

Furthermore the internal mic should be listed in control panel -> sound -> recording tab
If it?s not visible there, then you should click right and should check the options; show hidden device, show disabled devices. Then you could enable the internal mic and could make this as default device.

The microphone won't work (Or at least it's extremely unresponsive that if you scream into the mic port it might flicker.) I've read other forums and lots of people are having this problem but none of the solutions given are yet to work. I've tried them all. People seem to think it's a problem with the Bang & Olufsen driver. Any help welcome!

A:internal microphone on HP 2000 notebook laptop not working

Hello maggie75. I understand that you're having some problems with your microphone.You should try recording audio in another application so that you can determine whether this is an issue with the application or the microphone. Try the following.Click Start, type "sound recorder," and press Enter. This opens the Sound Recorder application.Attempt to record sound.Verify whether or not you hear sound.Post the result.Also. you may need to update some software. If this is the case it will be helpful to have your product number. This document can show you where it is located for me.I will await the result of this. I hope you have a great day!

Hello,

I own a laptop (Presario CQ56) and have been using Skype constantly for about a year with its internal microphone without an issue. After obtaining an automatic Windows 7 update a couple of days ago, my internal microphone stopped working. The microphone is still detected, enabled, but isn't picking up any input whatsoever. However, there is low static, but it's very constant, and isn't changed by input whatsoever. Here are the things I've tried:

-Restarting
-System Restore to before the update, then disabling automatic updates so I no longer have it
-Running the computer's find and fix audio recording software which claimed that there was no issue
-Uninstalling and reinstalling drivers without restart (with driver updates automatically through the computer's find and fix audio recording problems)
-Uninstalling and reinstalling drivers with restart (with driver updates automatically through the computer's find and fix audio recording problems)
-Uninstalling and reinstalling drivers with restart (through the official site's driver updates)

I do not own an external microphone, and I am hoping that I don't have to get one. That being said, that also means that I can't be entirely sure whether it's software or hardware based.

I hope that one of you can help me. I've done a lot of internet scouring and Google-ing and have run out of things to try; I've been at it for about 5 hours so far.

Thank you in advance.

A:Internal Microphone Suddenly Not Working After Windows Update

I would do a system restore to before it did the updates and see if it resolves the issue. Click start, programs, accessories, system tools, then system restore. Choose the date before the problem started happening and let it restore. See if the mic works after that. If it asks to do updates again and by chance you know what one caused the problem; then just dont download it. And to solve that from happening i would change the windows update settings to only download but let me choose when to install. EDIT: nevermind the system restore I just saw you already did that. In the end though i would just completely uninstall the device itself; remove it from device manager completely; and let windows hopefully re-detect it correctly.

Can anyone (1) confirm that this model of laptop has an internal microphone and (2) tell me how to get it working? Narrative: I have had this laptop for several years with Win 7 64-bit, recently upgraded it to Win 10 Home 64-bit.  When running Win 7, I definitely used an external microphone with the input jack, but I'm not sure I ever used the internal microphone.  Yesterday I tried to use Skype and couldn't get the microphone to work (I don't have an external mike where I am now).  Started trying to analyze and the only  Recording device listed in the Recording tab of the Sound control panel is "Stereo Mix, IDT High Definition Audio CODEC" - not sure if this applies to the internal mike.  Neither speaking to nor tapping on the microphone hole above the screen caused any response at all in the level bars at the right of the window. Started to doubt that I have an internal mike, so looked for specs.  On http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02910495, I found "Webcam with Integrated Digital Microphone (VGA)", which led me to check out the integrated webcam under Imaging Devices.  Still no definite confirmation that I have an internal mike, but I found an image of the laptop with mike identified next to the webcam, that corresponds to my laptop, so I really think the hardware is there. I used Device Manager to check for updates for the webcam device (HP Webcam-101), and it said the drivers are up to date.  I d...

I've had this Toshiba Satellite L500 for over a year and the internal mic has always worked great. I often use Skype on this machine and the mic always works fine. The other day my friend added Skype to his iPhone and we wanted to see if it worked, but because we were in the same room, there was some feedback (not much, but a little), so we hung up. Half an hour later, I tried to use Skype to call a friend back home, and the mic wasn't working. It hasn't worked since.

I uninstalled Skype and re-installed all of the audio drivers. I have also tried adjusting all of the Sound settings in Control Panel (mic volume, boost, default device, etc.). I also tried using an external mic, which worked fine, and I was able to switch back and forth between the external and the internal, but only the external picked anything up. When I use Sound Recorder with the internal mic, all that's recorded is a quiet, garbled, electronic noise which fades to silence within a few seconds (see .rar attachment). EDIT: I found that this noise was due to using Microphone Boost. If I turn the boost off, nothing at all is recorded.

Device Manager says the internal mic is working fine. Is there anything else I can do? Is there some kind of software that I can run to test if the microphone is working properly or is broken? I am running Windows Vista 64-bit.
 

A:Solved: Toshiba internal microphone suddenly not working

So under "Playback Devices" I turned the microphone playback volume up so I could hear through the speakers if anything was being picked up. At one point I close the lid of my laptop and heard some crackling. Turns out if I move the lid up and down, the microphone crackles, so I'm guessing there's a loose connection in there somewhere. It's too bad because it's not an old machine, and I still have no idea why it stopped working so suddenly.

Just thought I would update you all and suggest a possible troubleshooting method for those of you in the same situation. Of course, be careful of using microphone playback without headphones, since it can lead to feedback which can damage your audio components.

Hello.

I'm having a bit of a problem after I reset a Toshiba Satellite C55D-A-13T computer and upgraded it to windows 10. I reinstalled all the software from the Windows 10 upgrade Toshiba page and everything appears to work except the internal microphone. It doesn't appear to register any sound. It worked before, with windows 8.1 installed.

I tried another external microphone and that work fine. I tried reinstalling the IDT sound drivers and uninstalled DTS sound and Toshiba audio enhancements. I tried different audio levels and boost levels. The newest BIOS is installed. I tried using microsoft HD audio drivers but always with the same result, the green bar doesn't budge in recording devices.
