  1. Build-In Speakers And Microphone not Working after update


    Hello,


    I really need your help on this one.


    Yesterday I have updated my Windows and just after the update, my microphone and build-in speakers stopped working.


    What works:


    - the microphone works if I call someone on Facebook, for example

    - I can test my microphone and it works the bar is moving

    - my headset works, I can watch YouTube for example


    What does not work:


    - StreamLabsOBS, both build-in speakers and microphone not working

    - Apex Legends, microphone showing that works bar moving, but no sound recorded


    What have I done:


    - everything that is in this article https://beebom.com/resolve-microphone-issues-windows-10/

    - I restored my windows to before the update, still not working

    - I uninstalled the updates, still not working

    - reinstalled Realtek drivers, still not working

    - reinstalled microphone drivers



    I am literally out of ideas and about to go mad.


    Please, advise!

    :)

  2. Lumia 930 microphone doesn't work on speaker

    Hi, I have same issue on Lumia 930, have tried the various steps proposed by Microsoft, have also tried updating software to Windows 10 but to no avail. While a number of posts on this topic suggest it is likely to be a hardware bug, my symptoms seem to
    indicate software:

    • while using the phone normally (not on speaker) the microphones work perfectly. IE microphones 1 and 2 at the bottom of the phone appear to be working 100%
    • while using the phone on speaker, microphones 1 and 2 (see Windows Phones for good photos of microphone locations) seem to be completely off
    • while using phone on speaker, microphones 3 and 4 at the top of the phone seem to work reasonably as long as I'm close to the phone. Not as well as they should on a speakerphone though.
    • microphone on headset works fine
    This does look to be a very widespread issue ... any updates from Microsoft?

    thanks
