I have a problem where I have sound but my microphone doesn't work. I am using a lenovo ideapad 330S-15ARR. I've had problems with this laptop with linux in the past but nothing that can't be fixed however this one is puzzling me.

What I have tried

  • Reinstalled Alsa and pulseaudio
  • Installed pavucontrol and viewed the alsamixer but the microphone is turned and yet no sound is detected.
  • Tried plugging in a headset but the microphone still doesn't work.

I have never posted an issue before and I understand I am missing some information so please tell me what I should post the result of to help anyone. Thanks
