Now, the issue is that even with all the "pure" drivers from Lenovo on this machine, whenever I attempt to mute the microphone array that's built into the machine it never ever mutes even when the Control Panel applet says it's muted, nor the fact that the little orange LED on the F4 key shows it's lit and it still isn't muted.
That's not a good thing with me not being able to totally shut the mic up - I know I can disable the hardware (and yes that works) but that isn't a proper solution.
Anyone else ever have this situation? I've attempted:
- muting the mic manually in the Windows Recording mixer on the device itself, no effect
- muted the specific device in the Control Panel applet aka Microphone (Realtek High Definition Audio)
- making sure I have the latest drivers from Lenovo and deciding not to install anything else, not even those from Windows Update
Not sure what else to do. I did install Windows 10 on the laptop the other day for some experimentation (I can't stand the OS but I wanted to see how it ran on this laptop) and yes it was the April Creator's Update version 1803 and after getting that set up with the same method then installing Lenovo's ThinkVantage app for Windows 10 and everything else necessary, still the mic will not mute.
I'd hate to think it's a defect of some kind but maybe it is, I don't know, but I figured it couldn't hurt to toss the question out there and ask if anyone else has had such issues.
Thanks for any input on the situation.
Have fun, always...
