My microphone stopped working, appears like is not connected, I just try to update and reinstall the driver but after that I had no audio coming out from speakers, I checked the hardware with the components test and do work only when I do it before the OS stars (the ESC and F2 keys before windows starts), so after trying everything this forum said about no audio finally I re-install the OS (Windows 10) and everything worked fine for a day, (that was yesterday), today I just tried to join a zoom meeting and again no mic working, so I connected via Bluetooth a headset and that worked, after that I tried again to update the driver but still has the same issue, and now I noticed that the power light (the one just near the power adapter input) is blinking (5 times cycle) with no power connected and laptop turned off.
