Hello, I’m having the same problem where my built-in microphone doesn’t work anymore

I’ve try reinstall the sound driver from the manufacturer website. still no luck.
I’m using a laptop Acer VN7-591G. 

I’ve tried to use the instructions above, but I was stuck at step 7 “Let me pick from a list of the device driver on my computer”. I cannot find ‘High Definition Audio Device” nor Realtec Driver as it’s default

Hello JFrog, I’m so sorry for this late reply, your post was in page 2 and I was unable to see it, remove all audio drivers you got and make sure to give it another try from this link:
https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/support-product/5614?b=1
Then give your computer a couple of restarts and see if it works, also make sure you have the latest Windows 10 version.

Hello, did you try to install the compatible audio driver from here?

It’s this one (Realtek High Definition Audio Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) – ThinkPad 11e, Yoga 11e) dated 02 Sep 2015. Make sure to select your Windows version from the top left list. Install the downloaded driver then give your computer a couple of restarts. Good luck!

Hello everyone, I struggled almost a month to try to solve my micro problem, visible, correctly installed, but inoperative in the apps that use it: Skype, Audacity, etc. This problem occurred after my update in August 2018 … Today, by browsing the privacy settings, I discovered in my section “Microphone” that it was disabled … So I activated it and ‘Ô miracle’, it’s working again …
