Unable to record - flat lining

Hi All

Would appreciate some help.

Forgetting that I was able to record using my laptop’s own microphone, I am finding today that I cannot record using the in built device.

When I go to sound settings on my laptop I can see that the microphone is working fine and is detected and picking up sound. However, when I go into Audacity and hit the record button, it doesn’t detect any sound (as it did previously).

I have noticed that the correct microphone is selected (I renamed it in the laptop sound setting to be sure I recognised it) and the name has transferred ok into Audacity. I have also have the mic recording volume up full and audio host is MME (which I believe is the default) and set to 2 (Stereo) recording channels.

Not sure what else to tell you but if there are any checks I should go through to get this working, any details would be much appreciated.

Many thanks
