Audio driver is working properly but mic is not working.....using lenovo g430 3000
If the audio driver is working properly but the microphone isn't, ensure that:
1(a). The microphone is not muted.On Windows XP, go to start, run and type sndvol32 and press enter button to launch the Windows Sound Volume Management Panel.
Under the Microphone volume control, uncheck "mute" box.This should make your microphone functional again.
(b). The wrong microphone may be selected, esp. if your sound-card has an external port for microphones.To rectify the problem, use 1(a) as illustrated above, go to File>Advanced Controls and select Input Devices.Under the Microphone advanced settings, you'll see MIC1 Select and MIC2 Select. Switch the selection as appropriate until it works.
2. If the audio driver has it's own Sound management Panel, e.g that of Realtek, open it's sound control panel and disable all microphone effects that may be enabled.
3. Ensure that sound acceleration is maximum. Open the DirectX Diagnostics Engine by going to Start>Run> and type dxdiag and press enter button.When the window opens, click the Sound tab and slide the Sound acceleration bar to maximum.
I hope my solutions work.Have a good day.
