Lenovo Y700 Microphone Issues

2015-12-31, 3:52 AM

Hello,

Today I bought a Lenovo Y700--my second one, as there was a hardware issue with my first one and was able to exchange it for this one. The microphone and any audio device I use with this laptop continue to malfunction. Little or no sound comes through the microphone, including the built in one and multiple other audio devices. I have attempted to increase the microphone sensitivity through Control Panel->Hardware and Sounds->Manage Audio Devices and adjusting the microphone, but the microphone boost is already at its highest. Is there anything I can do to increase my microphone sensitivity?

I have the same issue.  I tried 3 different headsets and adjustments to every possible mic gain setting, in Windows as well as bundled sound software.

 

People tell me the mic is too quiet.  I am guessing it's related to the drivers/software rather than hardware.

 

Anyway, shortly afterward my Y700 completely gave out, the black screen of death after not waking up from sleep mode.  Now I sent it back for repair and we'll see what comes of that.  The mic gain issue will probably remain.
