Microphone(s) not working? - Windows 8

    Question

  • So up until a few days ago my integrated webcam and microphone were working fine. Then, all of a sudden, I tried to call someone using Skype, and my microphone AND webcam both weren't working. I tried plugging in an external microphone, but all to no avail. I have tried reinstalling drivers, and adjusting decibel levels, audio levels, muting, un-muting, and all of the possible culprits that I thought could have been the reason, but nothing is working. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I'm using a Lenovo Y500 Notebook running Windows 8. I'm starting to think that it might be a hardware issue, because I can't find any software that would fix this problem.

  • Did you do any updates? Re-installing the drivers might not have over written newer drivers if you did get some updates.

  • I think it did update. How do I make sure it doesn't update automatically?

    In the control panel, click on Windows Update. Under change settings there is a drop down. Change it there.
