Preferred Solution: Lenovo IdeaPad 710s Plus - Built-in microphone not working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, so I've had this problem for almost a year now, and I've tried everything to fix it. First, I checked the levels of the microphone, set it as default, still no sound. I tried listening to the microphone, and I get green bars but not from me, just me playing with the microphone jack. I uninstalled the drivers, then reinstall the realtek audio hd sound driver, and that didn't help either. I don't know what to do from there and I need your help!

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad y510P built-in microphone problems

Hi chalessandro,
 
Thanks for Posting!
   If you already reinstalled the driver which will reset the Audio Settings plus the Steps in this guide still won't make the microphone to work.
    Then I could say that you might need to contact Lenovo Technical Team for assistance, It might be a problem with the Microphone Hardware already..
You can try to reach them here

I am totally disappointed in Lenovo's customer support. My lenovo 710s was bought less than 1 year ago (as of 10/6/2017, when I sent it in for repairs) and had 2 years warranty (1+1 year of extended warranty). I sent my laptop for repair due to a white spot issue on the monitor, affecting viewing of webpages and videos. However, the laptop was returned after 3 weeks without any fixes/repairs, as Lenovo claimed that it was a cosmetic issue. I wrote a message on their customer care website on 3/7/2017. However, they ignored me and there was no reply to date.  I thought Lenovo is a reliable and popular brand. However, it turned out to be a horrible decision, much to my dismay!

Okay so I've had this computer less than 3 months and it's given me nothing but problems. Now it refuses to even turn on. The power LED turns on but the screen remains blank. This is an non removal battery type before anyone says remove the battery and use the adapter. I've drained the battery which has worked before but this time when I try to charge it the orange battery LED blinks three times. And still nothing on the screen. Any Lenovo stores are quite far away. Anyone knows what's going on?

I purchased my Y 500 just a few days back, while the laptop is perfectly functional otherwise the inbuilt webcam and microphone array just don't seem to work no matter what I do. Here is a list of what I have already tried after reading other posts: 1. Reinstalled drivers2. Fn + Esc3. Reinstalling energy management 4. Checking hardware in device manager It's like the camera doesn't exist it won't even appear in device manager.  Though the mic is displayed here, device manager says it is working properly yet I can't seem to make it record. I tried testing the camera with skype, youcam and testmycam webpage... the result was, all of them concluded I don't have an in-built webcam. I also tried attaching an external mic this works well enough but it is not a solution to my problem. Apart from opening up the screen panel I have done everything I can think of, the local lenovo customer care didn't provide much help either. I don't want to believe this is a hardware defect but that seems most likely, if any of you have a solution please help me out.

Hi  I am thinking of purchasing a 13" Lenovo ideapad 710s ($1199 model) over a MacBook air. I have been using a macbook air for several years and recently thought of getting a new laptop. Lenovo's 710s seems to be quite good on paper (except the battery life), but I couldnt find any reviews online which can tell me if the laptop is as good as Lenovo projects it to be. If anyone has bought/used Lenovo 710s, can  you guys chime in and let me know if this laptop came on par with your expectations (esp. the battery life)? Thanks

Dear Lenovo Community, I've just bought my Lenovo Ideapad 710S two days ago. Bought the highest-end configuration with 16GB RAM + 512GB PCIE SSD. I got to say I'm absolutely in love with the form factor and its performance. I decided upon this laptop mainly because of its portability and the combination of 16GB RAM + 512GB SSD at less than $2k. DesignAt 1.1kg, it is really light - I can hold in up effortlessly with one arm. At home, I use a Dell monitor (U2715H) which is almost borderless; looking at 710S's edge, it is equally slim and is key to making it look stylish. The matte screen display has very crisp, clear text and is very comfortable to look at. PerformancePerformance wise, there is no complain. It lives up to what it's spec-ed on paper. Every application and operation (e.g. startup, shutdown, boot from sleep) loads at breakneck speeds thanks to its PCIE SSD. I've yet to try running more intensive software e.g. the Adobe suite but at this rate, it looks promising thus far. AccuType KeyboardAt first, I thought the flat keys have really little travel to bottom-out but as I spend more time typing on it, I gradually grew to like the keyboard.

Hi, since I got my Ideapad 710s everything has been running smoothly, however, in the last month or so whenever I load something the mouse cursor disapears. If I go into settings and set the mouse pointer again it will appear as normal when something is loading, but within five minutes will go back to disappearing.  Another problem that started slighlty before that was that the night light (blue light filter) setting refused to turn off between 9pm and 6am, even when it said it was turned off. Now it is turned off, but won't turn on.  In general there has been lots of little settings malfunctions just like this, which while not laptop breaking, are increasingly annoying.  Any suggestions?

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad 710s cursor disappearing and other malfunctions

Hi there, Frevans                       -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Just to verify, did you encounter this issue the first time you setup the PC or you just encountered this lately?
 
If it's just lately, can you try one of the following?
 
Disable "hide pointer while typing" under Control Panel (large icon view) > Mouse > Pointer Options Tab and enable "Show location of pointer when i press CTRL key"
  - Link to picture
 
Uninstall the Touchpad Driver (ELAN or Synaptics) under Control Panel > Programs and reboot. Upon logging back in, Windows will use a generic touchpad driver. Try to observe the mouse pointer behavior and observe (you can always re-install the touchpad driver by navigating to D:\Drivers\Touchpad or by downloading the driver from the lenovo website).
 
Boot in Safe Mode with Networkingand observe the mouse pointer behavior. If all goes well, perform a clean boot and observe. If same problem, perform a System Restorein safe mode to undo any possible updates that was installed on the system (ensure that you make a backup copy of your files).
 
Update us how it goes.

I have a Dell Vostro 1500, running 32-bit Windows 7. It came with Vista, but I upgraded to Windows 7 a couple months ago, which I think is causing the issues I'm experiencing. According to whoever I'm speaking with, the sound for the microphone built in to my webcam fades in and out and gets really loud randomly. In an attempt to solve this, I bought an external microphone which also does not work.

The sound driver is the SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC, version 6.10.0.5614. When I tried to update it through Windows 7's update driver software it says I have the best version for my system, but I still suspect that this could be what is causing the problem. I can't seem to find a better driver though.

Any ideas?

I bought my Envy about a month ago but haven't had any occasion to use the microphone. Today I tried and it's not working at all - on Skype or in Windows Voice Recorder. I've been through the HP document (http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03421813) multiple times and it doesn't help. The weirdest thing is that when I play sound on the laptop, it does get picked up on recording - even if I mute the speakers. So it seems like the 'external' microphone just isn't switched on, somehow. But in Control Panel > Sound > Recording it's definitely the 'Microphone Array' that's enabled and set to default. So I'm very confused about what's going on, but it's pretty inconvenient!

Is there a way for me to recover or download the program that I need to use the microphone again?

EDIT: Also having the same problem with my wi-fi catcher.

Answer:Built-in Microphone not Working

HI. Whats the make of your Soundcard? Find that out and then go to the manufacturers website and download the latest drivers for your card. Dunno if Dell themselves have the drivers on their website. Might be an idea to check first.
Alternatively, you should have been supplied with a setup CD with the drivers on (hopefully). Install them from that.
Once installed configure as normal via the sound control panel.

The built-in microphone on my computer is not working. I just recently got this computer from a friend and had it formatted to Windows 8 (it's a Toshiba). I went to 'Set up microphone', and when it asked me to test the mic, it wouldn't work. It would not pick up any sound. Then, I looked to see if it was either disabled, dysfunctional (according to the system), or maybe if it was outdated and needed an update. Not only was it enabled, but according to the system, it was also "working properly" and "up to date". What more can I do to get it to work ? I cannot afford to get a new one. PLEASE HELP !

Good evening everyone,

I recently upgraded my HP Touchsmart IQ500 from Vista Home Premium to Windows 8 Pro. Aside from the lack of a media center or otherwise out-of-the-box-inability for DVD playback I've been enjoying the change. I solved the DVD problem with VLC, but I cannot figure out how to get my microphone to work now. It was fine before the upgrade, and now there's just silence when trying to Skype or record otherwise.

I've read a few articles that suggest updating the drivers in the Device Manager which I have tried, only to get a message that reads:





Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date.



Any help with this would be great. We've got family across the country and friends overseas that we keep up with via Skype and this is becoming quite the headache. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Built-In Microphone Not Working after Upgrade

Windows lies sometimes...

that being said, right click your speaker icon in the system tray

choose recording devices

Does it show a microphone with a green check mark under it?

Or does it say no audio devices are installed?

If it says no audio devices are installed then right click anywhere in that box and select show disabled devices

If the microphone shows up now but says disabled under it, then right click the microphone and select enable.

If this doesnt work then we'll look at your drivers.

Hi All, I recently purchased my Yoga 13. I'm having an issue with the microphone. While trying to set up skype I couldn't get the microphone working. I initially checked to make sure the microphone wasn't on mute... and it wasn't.  I then tried the following:- windows voice recorder which didn't register my voice- disabling and enabling the microphone- uninstalling and reinstalling the driver - going through windows troubleshoot wizard which couldn't find anything. Has anyone had this issue with their Yoga 13 or have any advice what I could try next? Many thanks!

Answer:Yoga 13 - Built In microphone not working

Hi puffy,
 
Thanks for posting and welcome to the Lenovo Community,
 
Could you please try to uninstall the audio drivers Conexant Audio Driver for Microsoft Windows 8 and reinstall them again,
 
And please change the settings on Skype to set the default Speaker and Microphone to be the audio driver,
 
And after that please try again to enter Search and type Troubleshoot on the settings tab and select troubleshoot and then Hardware and Sound and then Recording audio,
 
And share with us the status of the recording after these steps.
 
Hope the information helps. Let us know.
 
Regards
 

Soha

I have a Tecra A9 PTS52A-OEYO3F

My operating system is XP Professional.

I am trying to configure a Skype account without having to purchase a plug in microphone. I believe that my Tecra A9 has a built in microphone. When I test hardware via Control Panel / Sounds and Audio Devices / Voice / Test Hardware, an error message indicates that my voice could not be detected. A similar Skype test also revealed that my voice could not be detected.

The user manual at page 4-23 under the heading Microphone Level sets out the process for changing the recording level. Step 1 requires right clicking of speaker icon on the task bar to reveal Recording Devices on the sub menu. When I perform the right clicking of the speaker icon the menu revealed comprises "Open Volume Control" and "Adjust Audio Properties". There is no "Recording Devices" option hence the instructions in the user manual do not apply.

I am not convinced that I have a built in microphone, and if I do then why is it not functioning.

Thanks

Welcome to TSF,

Go to your computer's Device Manager (right click My Computer, select Manage,locate Device Manager) find the devices in question and see if there are any symbols (? X or !) on the Webcam and any other devices. If found, right click and choose uninstall, reboot your computer and see if your computer will automatically install the drivers.

If that didn't work, please visit the Sony site and driver the latest drivers for the webcam and audio.

Hello,I'm having a problem with my VN7-572G-724R laptop. I installed windows 8.1 and after some trouble installing the sound card update, I realize the speakers are working but not the mic. On the recording devices manager, I can see it but it says "Not plugged in". In the properties, it says that the driver installed is "Realtek high definition audio (SST)", not quite sure it is the right one. Additionally the jack informations says "Left pannnel 3.5 mm Jack", I don't know if I can do anything of it.  The various programs that I tried to identify if the driver had a problem all tell me that everything is in order, so I don't really know what the matter could be. Thanks in advance everyone.

Hi there!


I have recently purchased Toshiba Tecra Z50-A-181 laptop that came with Windows 7 64 bit (have 8.1, too but never installed it).

Anyways, once I started using it, I have discovered that the built in microphone is not working or not recognized at all.
So, what happens is that, once I plug in my headphones into the combined audio/mic jack, whoever I am talking to (on skype, let's say) stops hearing me (and my camera is turned on).

I have tried several things mentioned in other topics, however, the problem does not go off. Moreover, there is no driver for the camera or the built in microphone, or whatever.

In the device manager there is no additional device, not recognized and in the sound/recording options, no other microphone to use is shown.

I will appreciate it if anybody can help.
Thank you in advance!

Answer:Tecra Z50-A-181- built in microphone not working/not found

Do you have problem using external microphone only?
Your notebook is preinstalled with original recovery image so all necessary drivers should be installed.

Can you use internal microphone? It should be listed under recording devices.

I have an MSI GE62 laptop. I recently updated Windows 10 and had the same "no sound" issue that I've read about here. I was able to fix that, but now I have an issue where my laptop's built-in microphone does not work (i.e. it receives no sound, does not work with Skype or Audacity) upon first starting up the computer. If I restart the computer, then the microphone works. But it never works when I start up the computer after being shut down. I never had an issue with the microphone in the past year. This just happened now. I have no idea if it's connected to the update; it just happened around the same time, so I thought it could be related.

I'm assuming this is some kind of driver problem. Any recommendations on what I should do? The driver for the built-in microphone is listed as "Realtek High Definition Audio".

What driver software you have installed?
The microphone belongs to internal webcam so you have to reinstall the webcam driver if internal microphone doesn?t work properly.

> but then mute again.
Does this mean the internal microphone is muted? Please check the Windows sound settings if the microphone is listed properly under recording devices and set as default device.

I registered just to answer your question. Not sure if that popup is a win10 feature or a realtek feature. Only way I was able to fix this was by uninstalling and reinstalling the audio driver. It reset teh setting and allowed it to popup next time I plugged in my headphones/headset. There might be an easier way, but I am not aware of one. Hope this helps.

Hello. I have recently encountered some kind of a problem with a built in microphone in my notebook. It was working just fine for a long time and today suddenly stopped when i restarted my teamspeak client. I tried basic stuff like reinstalling audio drivers, messing around with microphone/recording settings etc. To give some more insight into this specific issue:- I have windows 10- when I go into sound settings/recording tab where recording devieces should be listed there are two of them: microphone and some mix stereo (this one is turned off), both from Realtek High Definition Audio- the green volume bar near microphone icon in mentioned window is not responding to anything- when I try to start windows built in "set up microphone" feature after i pass the "detecting problems" screen and choose "configure microphone" field I get message saying "The Wizard could not start. Make sure your audio hardware is working properly and check your audio configuration in the Audio Devieces and Sound Themes control panel." And then the whole process is being aborted.- I tried restoring system to one of saved restore points but apparently I can't do it as after computer restart I get the message which tells me the process failed because system could not have accessed some file (it says antivirus may be blocking it) Any tips on this subject are welcome.

Answer:Built in microphone of Satellite A100 is not working

Hi there,

after googling a bit around I found out that the A100 probably has no internal microphone. Maybe some of them have one, but without knowing which model you exactly have, it?s hard to find out whether you have a built-in micro or not.

So tell the exact model and the modelnumber and maybe we will find out if you have one or if you need an external microphone.

The internal microphone belongs to the internal webcam.
You can increase the mic volume in webcam software settings.
Start webcam software -> settings -> audio tab

There you should increase the mic volume to max.

Answer:Satellite A500 - Built in microphone stopped working

Hi buddy,

Do you use the microphone with an external application like Skype or how do you use it?

The microphone is a part of internal webcam so if you have some problems with the internal microphone I would recommend reinstalling the webcam driver that you can download on official Toshiba website:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com

Remove the old webcam driver and restart the computer. Then try to install the newest one.

Your laptop was shipped with Windows Vista. Yet it says in your profile you are running Windows XP. Your laptop is not compatible with Windows 7. Run the Windows 7 Advisor to make sure.

Hey Guys,  My built in microphone was working correctly until a few days back. I made no updates or system setting changes. It's a ThinkPad Edge E430 with Windows 8. The required audio drivers are in place. I have also enabled the microphone from audio settings. Please refer image below. Can some one guide me on what else I can do? Will be grateul as all my Skype calls are blocked becuase of this.  Thank you,Hariharan.  

Answer:Built in Microphone not working - Windows 8 - Edge E430

Hi, hariharaniyer22
 
If you press Win + X, a menu should appear at the bottom left corner of the screen. One of the options in this menu is Device Manager. Open this. Once inside, double-click on the tree for Audio inputs and outputs. What devices do you see listed under here?
 
Thanks in advance,
Adam

As the title, I tried to use the my microphone that comes inbuilt on this model (integrated VGA Web Camera with built-in microphone) and found its not working. Tried to plug in an external microphone via the mic jack and still not recording.
I cant seem to find the drivers for the inbuilt or the jack anywhere.

Any ideas?

Answer:Satellite C650-197 Built In Microphone and Jacks not working

Hi

> I can?t seem to find the drivers for the inbuilt or the jack anywhere.
Such drivers don?t exist. The sound card driver controls everything.
I think you should firstly start the webcam software and should test the mic because the internal mic is a part of the webcam.
The webcam software provides an tab; settings and properties. In one of these tabs you would find settings for audio.
There you could increase the mic volume and could record small audio session.

Additionally I recommend checking the settings in control panel -> sound.
Be sure that mic volume is set to max. Don't forget to check hidden and disabled devices there...

No matter what I try to do, I cannot get the microphone on this laptop to function.  It is not muted.  It is the default microphone.  However, it does not pick up any sounds.  I have contacted Windows and they could not help. Also, I cannot get the Lenovo live chat to work. Operating System is Windows 10.  Microphone is Conexant SmartAudio HD.  THen there is this Harman audio that came with the computer.  Computer was purchased 15/8/2016.
