Ok, maybe someone here will know something I don't. I have a HP Pavillion DV9260NR notebook with x64, Conexant HD audio. Like most, my internal mic no longer works. I have been to the HP support online with technician Soooo many times it's ridiculous. I have flashed Bios, uninstalled, reinstalled, updated all drivers
, gone through every step. I have rolled back drivers and installed old driver
packs. And guess what? They internal mic still doesnt work. Everyone says "just buy an external mic". My problem with that is that I did not go spend a ton of cash for this machine on the premise that it had everything built in, just to turn around and go buy more crap to drag around with me and plug into it. The machine should perform as it was represented when sold to me.... it HAS the hardware. Apparently, HP, Microsoft, and Conexant will continue to be absolutely worthless in this regard. Is there anyone, please, who can tell me how to fix this ridiculous problem? Any help at all would be most welcome!
