X61 Tablet - Windows 7 - internal microphone not working




I've got some issues with my tablet.

The internal microphone is not working, only microphones connected to the microphone/line-in jack.


recording devices in the sound panel on win7: only the "external" microphone (jack) is available
























microphone / line-in jack on the X61t







internal / integrated microphone on the X61t





Any ideas what could be going wrong? Do I need a separate driver?

Thanks in advance

Re: X61 Tablet - Windows 7 - internal microphone not working

Where do you see "only the "external" microphone (jack) is available"?  


The device I see works for either.  No extra driver needed.  Do the buttons near the internal mic work?  (checking for cracked cable, which is common for tablets with rotating hinge).  Any problem devices in device manager?  (especially USB hubs)
