ideapad 310 built in mic not working



I can't get the built in mic to work on my new laptop.  It is showing as being connected in the recording settings and enabled and set to default.  All showing up fine in device manager.


When I try to run the speech setup no sound is picked up.  I have checked and the mic is not on mute (F4) and I have turned its volumn to max.  



I have tried reinstalling the mic and audio controllers from Device manager and installed the latest drivers from the lenovo site, still no joy.  Anyone got any other ideas?

Hi there, Riccaw         -


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


Check the Mixer/Audio settings whether Mic is turned on. 

Depending on the used software it might happen, that it disables the microphone while ending the program (Skype, ICQ etc.)

Update us how it goes.
