Internal microphone not working on my hp pavillion x360

HP Recommended
Pavillion x360 Model:13-u138ca
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My hp pavillion x360 microphone stopped working recently and I don't know how to fix it. I tried to troubleshoot in setting and it says it may not be set up(but it previously was) and when I tried to speak the phrase it asked me to to set it up, it did not hear me. I have reset my computer and I still have no luck. Does anyone have any recommendations? As I am working from home now I will need the use of my microphone. Thanlks

  - Right click on the Volume Icon on the taskbar, select "Recording Devices".

  - Click on "Show disconnected devices", and "Show disabled devices".

  - Select on Microphone, click on "Properties". If it is disabled, enable it.

  - Once enabled, set Microphone as default audio input device.

3. Check if microphone isn't muted.

  - Right Click on the Volume icon on the taskbar, select "Volume Mixer".

  - On the Microphone slider, slide it up to 100%.

4. Boost sensitivity of Microphone

5. Disable enhancements

     click on Microphone.
