ThinkPad x1 Yoga (1st Gen) Stuck on Mute (Fix)

2020-10-14, 20:53 PM

So i have been plagued with the harware mute issue. After a month of trying to reinstall audio and hotkey drivers to resetting bios to default I have finally figured out a proper fix for this laptop. What i did was hard reset (holding down power button on side until the laptop fully shutdown) then when I tuned it back on it hit enter on the lenovo start up screen to enter bios, once i entered Bios i hit Fn+F2 to unmute the laptop, and the orange light went away on the mute key, then exited bios and saved, went through normal startup and this finally fixed my issue, I noticed that when i connected headpones or any bluetooth audio device this issue popped up. Hopefully this fix works for everyone else since it seems that it gets stuck on a hardware mute and the only fix is to unmute it from the bios menu.
