Hello. Today my microphone stopped working, it was fine yesterday. I dont know what happened, its enabled and the driver is up to date. I really dont know whats wrong with it, also its light is off( I assume the mic is right below the touchpad). I would reallylike a solution to it, since it hasnt been hit or touched any liquid or anything. Im really confused, because i also have 1 audio jack and i need 1 for my headset aswell so im unable to plug in an external mic. TLDR: Inbuilt Mic isnt working, even its light is off.

Hello. The Dell guy failed to mention that the 1st step to resolve an audio problem is to re-install the Realtek audio driver. If that doesn't fix it, then it could be due to a hardware failure, which would be covered under the warranty.
I did reinstall the drivers, so most likely, because the light on the mic has extinguished. The only concerning factor is that the PC is less than a month old. I will try to bring it to the shop for warranty repair. Ty
