Mic not working on Lenovo Z40

My mic became suddenly not working 2 days ago. I have tried re-installing the driver (Conexant) and make sure my mic isn't muted, but still, it does not work. I have also checked the status of the mic in device manager, but it says the device is working properly and the latest driver had been installed. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Or maybe my mic was busted physically?

 

Specs:

OS: Windows 10 (updated on December 2015)

CPU: Intel Core i7 4510U

GPU: Nvidia 840M 4GB

RAM: 12GB

Storage: 1TB

 

Thanks for the help!

Re: Mic not working on Lenovo Z40

Welcome to the Forums Calvin.

 

Try this: Go to Control Panel > Speech Recognition > Advanced speech options > Microphone > Advanced...and checked real Conexant 20561 SmartAudio.

 

Update us how it goes.

Re: Mic not working on Lenovo Z40

You can also try the below steps:

 

Control panel / sound / manage audio devices

Go to the recording tab, click “internal microphone", then properties

Then in the "level" tab make sure the mic is not muted (even if the level is at 100 %....)

 

Also, your issue might be similar to this thread.

 

Update us how it goes.

Re: Mic not working on Lenovo Z40

My mic still not working despite following all the step and reinstalling driver 

But if I disable and enable the mic the green bar beside the mic rise briefly 

After that no matter how I scream into the mic no green bar has rise
