Microphone looks like it should work, but no sound from playback

#1
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

Hi, did you install the drivers for your machine found on your manufacturers website? If not you might be lacking functionality.

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