T500 Audio conexant audio driver skype or any VOIP mic inop after recent update

2010-02-17, 22:22 PM

I've had this problem before. when i use thinkvantage to update my system and update the conexant audio driver i no longer can use my internal mic on skype. Speakers still work, camera still works just can't talk.  i can plug in a mic to the front port and then it works. if i open up my sound menu with out testing skype i can unclick mute and the mic works. Fix would be nice on this, been this way for 3 months. it's not really a skype problem in the way of before the update everything works fine. I'm also running windows XP

rotonbanana,

 

We are looking into this symptom as potentially linked to the latest driver.   Try rolling back your audio drivers one level and see if these symptoms go away.

 

Best regards,

 

Mark

i've deleted the driver so cant really roll back...found some new info on this though if you

open up skype and then go into tools options and then audio settings.

 

now open up control pannel and click on sound and audio devices. then click audio tab. then volume. i get a microphone bar with insted of mute on the bottom check box there is a select.

 

now i check the select box and i can use the mic as long as the window is open,

 

if i close it stil works until i close the audio settings box then if i try the audio settings again it un-selects the box...hope  this helps

T500 - inbuilt microphone stops working

2010-03-07, 5:17 AM

The microphone has been working fine in Skype, which is the only application I have ever used it. Today, absolutely no response from the microphone. I have checked Control Panel, the microphone is not muted, it is correctly selected, being the only microphone on the laptop. Sound/Volume advises that it is not muted. As I select sound in Control Panel, I can hear myself talking through the micropohone and the sound coming out of the speakers, but as soon as I perform the hardware test, the system reports that no microphone is connected!! and it stops responding. No matter what setting I have tried in Skype will make it work.

I have downloaded and installed the latest Conexant drivers, but still no joy.

 

I can and have connected a USB headset, which works just fine, so what is the matter with this "brick" ?

USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.
