I recently purchased an IdeaPad Y510 from a friend who had it for 2-3 years. It is in excellent condition and it was reset with the Novo button prior to getting it.
Needing a larger HDD and with no obvious upgrade option from Lenovo, I purchased a 500GB HDD and a new Windows 7 Pro DVD. Installation was without a hitch, with one exception so far.
The internal microphone does not seem to hear anything. I checked the settings and all seems to be correctly configured, but I may be missing something.
Does anyone have any idea what may resolve the issue? By the way, I tried the Vista driver for the sound board, but it did not seem to have the necessary files.
Thanks in advance!

Hello Eric_G and welcome to community,
The issue seems to be audio driver.
Kindly check if the audio driver is installed properly and also check with external microphone.
If you have detail of sound card then get the driver from sound card manufacturer for Windows 7
