    Hi there,
    I have been searching forums for some help, but have not found anything.
    I have a thinkpad x100e netbook and a Conexant CX20582 SmartAudio HD sound card.
    i just reinstalled windows 7 and it seems the microphone has not worked since i did that.

    I have adjusted, updated, disabled and enabled the drivers, but i still do not get any sound when playing back recordings or skype test calls i make. the system lets me make the recording, and skype seems to detect the microphone, but nothing plays back.
    the speakers work without problem.
    when i try to set up the microphone, the prompt does not identify it.
    i have tried to connect a microphone as well, but either way, i would like to mostly rely on the built-in mic anyway.
    also, the microphone does not show up on the volume mixer.
    if anyone has any advice on how to get it to work, i will be grateful.
    cheers,
    jolitical

    Have you checked Device manager? See if the onboard mic is listed or if any question marks are present.
