Yoga chromebook c630 microphone

2020-02-13, 16:38 PM

A few months ago I started having problems with the microphone and video freezing.  Two weeks ago the microphone died while trying to use it with zoom.  doing further analysis the other day shows that it's not working with any product that uses it.  It also doesn't work if I use a bluetooth device with a functioning microphone.   Apparently this is a known issue according to other postings i've seen, but now my warranty is 5 days over it's expiration date. As recommended on the support site, I rebooted, reset to original settings, to no avail.   Is there any workaround I can peform without having to pay an silly amount of money to get this fixed?

Did you ever get this figured out? I've had the same issues and have been trying to follow Chrome forums etc. but it hasn't been fixed on the chrome updates end of things for me

If you can install Lenovo Vantage on Chromebook then try it.

And update the drivers of your laptop as recommended by the application.

 

It seems that this a driver issue and nothing else.

 

I hope this helps!

I hate this Lenovo Yoga. My solution is I've gone back to my 2015 Acer Chromebook. It's old and beat up but the microphone, camera and processor work perfectly for Zoom and Skype. This new-ish Yoga fails constantly. 

 

This microphone is broke. The camera freezes constantly and there's other anomolies that force a restart. Ridiclous. The old Acer is cheap plastic but it works perfectly with Zoom and Skype.
