It could be either your microphone muted, or issue with drivers. You need to remove old ones completely and install new - but from Lenovo support website, not from Realtek.

The following items should be installed:
- Lenovo Power Management Driver
- Lenovo Settings Dependency package
- Lenovo Settings metro app from ms store

The latter needs also Lenovo System Interface Foundation (read readme file)

Take a look at the Lenovo Settings app info and download link:

Re: T430 Windows 10 Clean Install internal microphone not working

I have the same problem - plus that mouse disappears sometimes, plus that the allways on USB is not always on and that closing the lid has to be done twice to get the machine to sleep.

 

But let us stay with the microphone at first.

 

I did not understand what you wrote above. I tried removing the driver completely and reinstall it. but it did not help. Maybe I did something wrong. Also, I have all the prerequisites installed, but maybe I di so in the wrong order?

 

Could you please elaborate a bit more on what to do to get it going - if you know it. So many say - just reinstall drivers or twiddle with the sound enhancements etc. But it does not work in my case.

So far I did try everything I could with no luck.

 

We did try on 2 other T430 and the microphone works fine so ... 

Maybe it is a faulty microphone.

Re: T430 Windows 10 Clean Install internal microphone not working

No, I do not think so. It does react when I clap in my hands. why owuld the microphone suddenly start working really strange after updating to W10. Before it worked flawlessly.

I think it has something to do with the drivers and what programs are installed. It shoudl not have - but I think it does,

Help!!!!

Re: T430 Windows 10 Clean Install internal microphone not working

Oh wonder!
I updated Lenovo Settings - including the crazy ASPpackage that required reboot. Np change

Then I went into the audio page and turned on suppress Keyboard Noise and Automatic Audio Optimization.

Lo and behold - after 6 months frustration - the internal mic worked again.

PLEASE LENOVO - WHEN YOU MAKE FANCY IN BETWEEN SOFTWARE INTEFERING THE OS - PLEASE MONITOR THIS FORUM AND PROVIDE INTELLIGENT REPLIES: I have seen many with problems and none suggested this.
