Built in Microphone suddenly stops working.

HP Recommended
Example: SPECTRE x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I have had this HP spectre X 360-13t-4000 laptop for 5 years. it has been working well all along. Lately, the Micros phone suddenly stops responding, or maybe picks up very week signals. The weird thing is that when it goes into this state, the voice recorder barely picks up any sound. Playing back I cannot hear anything, but can hear fine when it is not in this funky state. The control panel (system->sound->input) shows no indication of sound being received. This happens right in the middle of a Zoom session, and the people on the other end say they cannot hear me.


I went to HP site and downloaded audio drivers and installed them. But still no help. Appreciate any help you can give me. This is becoming a real nuisance.


I am not sure what makes it recover, but this does look like a software problem.
