HP Pavilion x360 2-in-1 built in microphone is COMPLETE DISASTER !!! It's VERY sensitive to how you touch/position the lid (where screen is) of the computer. Trying to use Skype I have gone through the whole "check drivers, disable/enable device etc" procedure only to find out that if you bend (very little) the lid or change its position - it suddenly starts (or stops) working. It may either not take any sound at all, record static or work normally.

Try adjusting the lid position and test the mic with Voice Recorder.

Either my laptop is flawed (and BestBuy wouldn't take it back because it's 20 days instead, not 14) and I haven't figured out how to open case with HP yet or it's REALLY bad design.
