    Hello

    I recently reinstalled Win 7 on my HP Probook 4530s, and have encountered a few problems since.
    The latest is that the internal microphone does not seem to be functioning at all through any programs that would use it (Skype, sound recorder etc).

    It does appear in the audio devices control panel but not in device manager (although I don't know that it should?), and it says its working correctly but obviously this is not so!

    Additionally, the sound was behaving erratically as well - it often will not work unless I click the test button on the speaker properties page. If I leave the computer for any length of time I have to repeat this.

    I have downloaded the only audio driver that is listed here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsuppor...Id=5060880&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=4058 but this does not seem to have any effect.

    Anybody have any ideas?

    May I ask what the reason was for re-installing Windows 7?

    A few issues, something was pinging the internet intermittantly using almost 100% of the processor and causing the whole system to slow, plus the system came with a ton of bloatware that was causing it to be really slow to boot up etc.

    Basically just wanted a nice clean install, but for reasons best known to themselves HP don't seem to have put all the correct drivers on the support page.
