Satellite C55D-A - internal microphone not working after windows 10 upgrade.

Q: Satellite C55D-A - internal microphone not working after windows 10 upgrade.

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.

After upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7, the internal microphone on my DELL Inspiron 1525 does not work. When checking in the Control Panel > Sounds, the only device options are for the external microphone connection to the jack... Please help!

A:DELL Inspiron 1525 Internal Microphone Not Working After Windows 7 Upgrade

Hi vinnyspice,
 
According to Dell's website, this laptop's drivers are only for Windows Vista. You contact Dell and see if there is any update available.
 
In the meantime, try downloading and installing the chipset driver and the sound card driver for Windows Vista and see if the issue can be resolved. You can download
them
HERE.
 
Also, run Windows Update to see if it helps.
 
Regards,

I recently updated my Satellite S50t-B from 8.1 to 10 and have found that the microphone is not functioning. I does not seem to be picking up any sound. Removed and reinstalled the Conexant HD Audio Drivers and ran the Windows troubleshooter. Have installed all Windows updates and the updates on Toshiba Service Station and updated all the Toshiba software and drivers I could. The microphone shows as being installed correctly but no sound is picked up when I try to configure a recording device or if recording video via Webcam app. Not sure what to do now? Is there a Windows 10 version of the Conexant Audio Driver?

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.

Hi people,

i have the above problem since i upgraded Vista to windows 8. my soundcard seemsto work ok. My webcam is also working. i made sure i chose the right microphone on the control panel etc. so theoretically there is no reason why it shouldnt work.. but its not working.

im guessing it has to do with my laptop being quite old, hence no compatible drivers ? i have a Satellite L350.

what should i do?
simly buy a headset?

best!,
Al

A:Satellite L350 - built in microphone is not working after Win8 upgrade

I can understand that you want to use newest OS on this old piece of hardware but it can be problematic to use it if the certain notebook model is not fully supported.

I think you are the first one who has reported about this issue. Unfortunately I cannot help you with this but if possible ask some friend if you can get headset and test audio out and mic ports.
It will be interesting to know if you will be able to use mic on headset.

Please post some feedback.

The Windows 10 upgrade seems to be working fine on my HDX 16 (I did a clean install). Now I want to talk to Cortana and cannot get my built-in microphone to work. This brings up two questions. 1. Does my laptop model have an Integrated Microphone Array? I cannot remember the last time it worked, but I thought it had one. 2. If it does have a built-in mic, how do I get Windows 10 and Cortana to hear it? I have tested and have got things to work with an external (Logitech) headset mic and headphones. And, I have an old unbranded external stand mic that works as well. I just cannot yell "Hey Cortana" at my PC and get anything to happen. I also ran the mic test on the Integrated Microphone Array and it recorded nothing (and I set the array to default). My driver is IDT High Definition Audio CODEC 6.10.6225.0, dated 7/21/2009.

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.

Hi, I was asked by Toshiba USA to post this here as my laptop is an European model.

I recently got this laptop, so it is still new and so is the installation.

The laptop is TOSHIBA SATELLITE C55D-A-149. I realise that this is a budget laptop and the processor is fairly weak. But still it came pre-installed with Windows 8.1 and afaik isnt Windows 8.1 optimised for slow laptops/tablets but mine is performing really poorly.

Startup is slow, file manager is slow, minimizing a window takes forever and so on.

In order to find out where the problem lies I ran a cross platform benchmark on my machine i.e. on Windows and on Ubuntu linux. I used a live CD to run linux without installing it. The benchmark tool used was Geekbench3: http://www.primatelabs.com/geekbench/

The results of the benchmark can be seen from here: http://browser.primatelabs.com/user/87755

And it is clear how lagging Windows 8.1 is.

What is the reason for this very poor performance?

If Windows 8.1 really is the problem would it be better for me to remove this and install Windows 7? But I dont want to lose my genuine copy of 8.1 as this is what ensures the next free Windows 10 upgrade. Is there any way to partition the hard drive and not lose the recovery partition?
What are my options now

A:Satellite C55D-A-149 - Windows 8.1 depressingly SLOW

Well, the Satellite C55D-A-149 was equipped with the AMD Essentials E1-2100 Accelerated 1GHz CPU

This CPU does not provide the best performance… therefore its necessary to modify the system to get a appropriate notebook performance.
First of al I would recommend you to clean the system using the CCleaner. Its freeware software and it helps you to clean the registry as well as to remove “garbage” like temporal stored files.

Furthermore you could disable some background processes and tasks which are not really necessary…
I think this should help you to get the system running smoothly.

Regarding the Win 7 installation:

If you want, you can install Win 7... the clean OS installation can be useful because all the additional software would not be installed automatically but you could choose between the single utilities...

Hi all. I accidentally 'cleaned' my drive with DISKPART as I was trying to fix boot issues.

I'm using 'TestDisk 7.1' to recover the partitions and everything seems ok so far, but I need the original partition characteristics to assign.

Options are *=Primary Bootable P=Primary L=Logical & E=Extended.

Portions are:
NTFS "System" 1024 MB
FAT32 "" 100 MB

Any help would be much appreciated!

Also any advice/feedback on 'TestDisk 7.1' or suggestions for other software (preferably free). I've tried 'MiniPartitionTool' and it seemed to do a great job of finding the deleted partitions too, but they want 40 bucks!!! to recover!

Depending on the used software it might happen, that it disables the microphone while ending the program (Skype, ICQ etc.)

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.

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'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?

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?

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.

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.

Hello,

I sometimes make overviews in virtual machines and technology tutorials on my Mac for YouTube and other video sites, I bought a Dell PP28L laptop yesterday with Windows 7.

There is an internal microphone (2 are listed) but neither seem to detect any audio, the volume setting is on 100, and I have tested both of the listed, but neither work.

I want to do a tutorial on installing Movie Maker 6.0 (Vista version) on Windows 7 easily, but can't do it, because I need to use my voice in the video, of course.

Would like some assistance please, thanks ^^

A:Dell PP28L | Internal Microphone Not Working

PP28L does not return anything on the Dell support site. Do you have another number for this unit? It must be an old machine?

Also, what is listed in the Device Manager, Sounds section? Post a screenshot.

Try right clicking the speaker on your taskbar then go to recording devices then go and right click in the big box with little rectangles in side and show disabled devices then if it is there right click it and enable. Hope this helps.

Anyone know if there's a way to reverse the "polarity" of the FN key on Toshiba Satellite C55D-A? All I can find is sticky key or notification settings. I'm looking to have F1 - F12 work like on desktop keyboards and hold down the FN key to adjust brightness, volume etc..

A:Toshiba Satellite C55D-A reverse FN key?

I found it. I could not find anything in Settings screens. I went to the Toshiba folder under Program Files (x86) and there was an exe file SystemSettings.exe. Click Keyboard. From the dropdown box change from Special Mode to Normal Function Key Mode. Now I can kill a window with Alt F4 and no FN key. Yay!

Edit: you have to restart for it to kick in. The quickie restart from the Power thingy in Settings does it just fine.

Hello. I have a Satellite C55D-B series laptop and for the last week or so, the screen has failed to light up. Sometimes it will say that the RTS battery is low, usually after taking the main battery out as I have tried that one trick where you hold the power button, and have taken it out when opening up the laptop. Some more important information:
-There is a very dim image on the screen which indicates that for some reason, the backlight isn't turning on. Of those reasons, one I've read could be the lid switch but I cannot find it.
-Every so often, the laptop works perfectly and the monitor lights up.

Could it be a faulty converter board (sp?), CMOS battery (which I also cannot find-- it seems the slot where it would normally go in other toshiba laptops is completely empty), lid switch, driver, or something else?

Last I bought a new laptop TOSHIBA Satellite C55D-C-13M.

Unfortunately there is no DVD/CD player in it.

Where can I buy a separate DVD/CD player and how can I install it in the laptop?

Thank you in advance for your answer.

There may not be a SATA connector for a DVD.
You could use an external USB DVD drive.

Hi All,
I was hoping someone on here could help me out, I have a relative who's laptop - a SATELLITE C55D-A-14W is now asking for a BIOS PASSWORD at boot. They're insisting they never set one nor would know how to. They reckon it was last installing updates of some sort. I was thinking of the possibility of it's maybe been installing a BIOS update and hasn't went quite right and is now therefor corrupt? I've had a look around the motherboard from under the memory covers etc. to see if there's any jumpers - I remember years ago you could short a couple of jumpers and it would force reset the BIOS but no joy. I searched around the web too and couldn't find an indication what the jumpers might be for this particular model. Is this possible anymore? Or could I somehow force re-flash the BIOS in the hopes that might cure it?

Please guys any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
