MICROPHONE ISSUE

HP Recommended
Envy Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Microphone encodes audio very low and slow like an old LP being played at half speed.  I've checked drivers and any suggested fixes I can find.  No help. And all diagnostics I've tried, say its working fine.

As anyone who has been on a Zoom call with me can attest.  Its not.

Making a great laptop worthless for video conferencing.

Any ideas?

Welcome to HP Community

 

I have gone through your Post and would like to help

 

I suggest you download and run the HP Support Assistant from this Link: https://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/hpsupportassistant/hpsupport.html?jumpid=va_r602_us/en/any/psg/p...

 

HPSA will automatically search for all the latest drivers for your Notebook

 

  1. Click My devices in the top menu, and then click Updates in the My PC or My notebook pane.

    Click Updates in the My notebook pane

  2. Click Check for updates and messages to scan for new updates.

     Updates list in HP Support Center

  3. Review the list of updates. Updates with a yellow information icon are recommended. Updates with a blue information icon are optional.

  4. Click the update name for a description, version number, and file size.

  5. Select the box next to any updates you want to install, and then click Download and install.

Also ensure Windows is up to date.

 

Select the Start  button, and then go to Settings  > Update & security  > Windows Update , and select Check for updates. If Windows Update says your device is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available

 

Keep me posted how it goes

 

Thank you and have a wonderful day 😊
