  1. After Windows 20H2 special function key won't mute microphone


    Hey,

    so I have Lenovo IdeaPad laptop and I had Win 1909 everything was working smoothly but Microsoft started pushing the 20H2 update so I was forced to install it. After installation my mic was not working at all I ran the troubleshooter and somehow my mic was muted and it was fixed. So now my mic works but I used to mute/unmute my mic with special function keys like F4 will mute/unmute my mic but this is now not working at all I tried reinstalling the sound driver, the microphone is set to default... nothing works.

    Any help?

    :)

  2. Volume Mute Light won´t change color

    I have an HP ProBook 6440b with a Win 10 Pro os. My problem is the volume mute light (#5 in the service manual, page 2-6). The switch works o.k. and shows when the mute function is on or off on the desktop but the light stays orange (muted position) regardless of the function being on or off. I know that the blue color is there as I see it flicker so slightly during upbooting but I can´t find out how to have the blue color show when the speakers are not muted. The wireless button (#4; page 2-6) changes color and the function works properly when pushed (tried it as a function comparison test) so I think this may be a slight software glitch in the sound system code but how to find and fix is way beyond my knowledge and skills. If anyone knows how to fix this problem, please do tell but baby steps please as my computer skills are truly limited (old dog, new trick syndrome rules here).

    microphone mutes itself

    When i go into properties the mike is muted. When I unmute it works for less than a minute then mutes again. The only suggestion I have found is set as default device which does not solve problem. I have also read it is a virus but I cannot solve with malware or virus scans. It first became a problem just a few weeks ago while skyping. Never had a problem with mike until then.

    Troubleshooter finds the microphone muted and fixes, Within a minute the microphone mutes itself again.
