I have installed the most recent Conexant drivers for XP (126.96.36.199/188.8.131.52) and do not have the internal microphone as an option for audio input. I don't see any errors in device manager either.
Can someone please help me fix this?
I too have experienced this situation.
Is there a fix?
I have just noticed that my mic on my W500 (Model BK8, type 4061) is not working at all.
The speakers are working ok.
The internal mic does not produce anything when I test it using the Windows Control Panel.
I have tried the external jack also, and still nothing.
I updated the driver and the bios using the Thankvantage update. Still nothing.
