T430 microphone does not work Windows 10

2017-11-10, 12:42 PM



I have a problem with my Thinkpad T430 which I recently bought... It is running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (Version 1709; Buildnumber 16299.19) and according to Lenovo Companion, it is the version 2349.

Anyways, if I open the audio settings > recording devices, I can't find the internal microphone. If I connect my headset with combo jack, its microphone won't be detected as well... Reinstalling the drivers did not work for me and the other instrucitons of the Lenovo Support page didn't help either.


I would appreciate your help,

Thanks :-)

If you go into the BIOS, under the Security > I/O Port Access page, is microphone enabled?
