I downloaded Windows 10 and now my Microphone for recording in OneNote will not work. It states the device cannot be located.
What can I do to fix it?

I fixed this by uninstalling the Lenovo Conexant drivers for the speakers and the sound controller from within device manager and rebooting. The microphone reappeared. I let Win 10 install its own HD sound drivers and all was well.

As a (hopefully) final twist to the tale, Win 10 has now installed Conexant specific drivers in place of the Microsoft HD Audio ones. Looking at the event history the new drivers "outrank" the generic ones. The Conexant drivers are signed by Microsoft, not Conexant.
Crucially, the microphone remains in place after this latest update.
