May I know if your webcam works or not? Because webcam and microphone share the same module, so it may be the cable got disconnected.
If webcam works but Microphone fails, it might be other HW issue that requies HP's supports to check out; but no matter cable loosen or HW breakdown, both require tearing-down your device to do the repair.

the web cam does work. Thanks for the response I guess I'll be buying a new laptop (black friday deals are coming) maybe with windows OS. The new Toshiba looks interesting.
