    Built in Microphone not working

    Hello,

    I've been having a problem with my laptop (MSI GF63) Built it microphone that it's not picking any sound. It was working the day i bought the laptop (few weeks ago) and for some reasons it stopped working all of the sudden. I tried to check the privacy setting
    and it's all good and there's nothing interfering with the mic. I also tried to reinstalling the driver (Realtek HD audio) multiple times and still no luck. I even reset windows and It worked for a day (Before i shut the laptop down i believe) and it's not
    working again . The weird thing is when i try to "set up the microphone" the built in mic, the troubleshooter doesn't gave me the step where you try to speak to your mic and straight up just gave me "Your microphone might need to be set up" with the green
    checklist logo on the right still having the same problem.

    Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank You

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that after an upgrade of Windows the microphone is not working, we will look in to this for you. However, in order to help you with the appropriate troubleshooting steps, please reply with the following details:



    • What type of upgrade are you referring to, is it a system upgrade or an update?
    • What is the complete model number of the tablet?
    • Which build version of Windows 10 is installed on the computer? To check type:
      winver in the search bar on the Taskbar and hit Enter.


    In the meantime, I suggest you to refer the troubleshooting steps in the article

    Fix microphone problems
    and see if that helps in resolving the issue.



    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.

  4. Laptop built-in microphone stopped working, how to troubleshoot it?

    Built-in Microphone stopped working.

    My RealTek microphone has recently stopped working on my ASUS VivoBook. This has happened before, usually after plugging in headphones, but in the past restarting the computer fixed the problem. This week, however, the built-in microphone seems to be completely
    off. I have set it as the default, run troubleshooting, and installed the latest drivers. Plugging in a separate microphone works, but I would like to be able to use the built-in one. Any thoughts?
