    Laptop's in-built microphone not working


    I had bought an Asus Vivobook 15 with pre-installed windows 10 on 2nd August 2020. I had video called through Google Duo on this laptop once or twice and it was working normally, but after about a week or so the in-built microphone of this laptop stopped working. There isn't any physical damage since I haven't taken this laptop anywhere out of this room. It's currently using Realtek Audio drivers. I have tried almost everything tried updating my drivers, disabled and re-enabled them and everything but no use. Even the native camera app of windows 10 doesn't record any audio when I tried recording a video with it.

    :)

    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

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