Yoga x1 3rd gen audio microphone problem

2018-06-24, 21:31 PM

Hi all,

my audio suddenly stopped working (no sound at all) and whenever I record and play a message recorded by the voice recorder I just receive a feedback noise. The problem disappeared for a short while with a bios update but re-appeared 2 days ago. Yesterday, everything was normal again for 1 day until battery dropped below 45%. Then, after waking the laptop up from standby I had no sound when playing videos and only feedback sound when playing a recorded message. Windows re-install and driver re-install did not work. Also, I have no sound when booting from an Ubuntu live CD (also more like a feedback noise). 

Any idea? I would say hardware fault but I was surprised that it started to work again and suddenly stopped working again. Can it be a software fault or a bios problem or somehow be related to the battery?
