HP Envy x360 (ay-0012nl) | Integrated microphone not found

HP Recommended
HP Envy x360 (ay-0012nl)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My PC does not recognize any integrated microphone, as if there was none. No matter what I do, it's just like it's no there. It had already happened a few weeks ago, but the problem disappeared in a few days by itself. My guess is that there is some internal hardware connection that does not work properly. Any suggestions?


EDIT: turns out that the problem started when I uninstalled the AMD Adrenalin software. Re-installing it solved the issue. I believe that the proper functioning of the microphone should not depend on AMD's software though.

The driver controlling the microphone is part of the AMD graphics driver, so it does depend on AMD software.


I had the same issue, and was absolutely surprised when I found out that the AMD Audio device listed under the Sound, video and game controllers device manager category, was the microphone.


I would have bet $100 that it was part of the Realtek audio system like 99% of every other notebook out there.
