Microphone is not working

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Notebook 17-AB011NL

Hello to all,
I have a problem with the microphone. There is a hum instead of my voice. For 3 times I solved by reinstalling the Chipset, Audio, Intel I2C, Intel ME drivers but now this solution no longer works. I tried to format the PC and after some time the problem returns. The BIOS is updated to the latest version.

This is what I am listening to: https://voca.ro/kjv6tfpuUXu

Can anyone help me please?
Thank you

Welcome to HP support community.

 

Did you try recording with a different software and check if that works fine?

 

Meanwhile:

Follow below steps to resolve this issue.

1. Run Audio Troubleshooter

  - Launch Troubleshooting by typing and clicking “Troubleshooting” in    

     Windows search.

  - Click on "Playing Audio".

  - Follow the on-screen instructions.

2. Check if microphone isn't disabled.

  - 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

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

  - Double click on Microphone.

  - Open the Levels Tab, move the Microphone boost slider up to check audio.

5. Disable enhancements

  - Right Click on the Volume icon on the taskbar, select "Recording“, Double 

     click on Microphone.

  - Open the Enhancements / Effects Tab.

  - Check "Disable All Sound / System Effects“. Click Apply, OK, test the Microphone again.

6. Change format of the Microphone

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

  - Double click on Microphone.

  - Go to the Advanced Tab, choose any of the 16 bit options on the list.

 

 I hope that helps.
