Hi Intel,

With latest BIOS "FNCML357.0050.2021.0303.2141", the front panel audio microphone, with win10 Windows Voice Recorder program. the play voice is very small. Even changed serval Nuc audio driver, the situation is the same.

 

Can you have a check?, Also please share your platform config of "detail" Intel SSU Tools.

 

Even I did not see conflict or Yellow band on device manager.

But, from system event view, it can observed the follow audio error.

Hello HPBird

  

Thank you for posting on the Intel️® communities. 

 

To confirm, you only get problems with the microphone, is this correct? Please share with us the following information:

  • Which program do you use for voice recording? Does it happen on other applications?
  • Which device do you use for recording? Please provide the brand and model of the microphone.
  • Do you also get audio issues on different devices? Please list their models
  • Audio Driver versions tested.
  • Did you test different graphics drivers? Please list the versions.
  • Did you update the Operating System recently?
  • Was the same setup working fine with the previous BIOS version?

Hi Intel,

I response your question as follow

= = = = = 

  • Which program do you use for voice recording? Does it happen on other applications?

[HPBird]: It is the windows voice reocrding in box application, you can get information from: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-record-sound-using-voice-recorder-app-windows-10

  • Which device do you use for recording? Please provide the brand and model of the microphone.

[HPBird]: I use "圓剛 AM133 外接式收音麥克風", I am make sure that it work on other computers (Intel NUC5i7RYH, AMD Lenovo L14, Lenovo USB Dock Gen2 Audio jack, ...etc)  with the same windows voice recording application. you can check the shopping store (brand: AverMedia, Model: AM133) :
https://24h.pchome.com.tw/prod/DCAIFW-A9009QV6L

  • Do you also get audio issues on different devices? Please list their models

[HPBird]: No information provide, I am a user, did not have too much device for testing, I am not employed by Intel QA.

  • Audio Driver versions tested.

[HPBird]: In basic, I testing the intel latest audio driver "Driver Version: 6.0.8950.1 (English)", I have already include in before intel SSU attachment. Can you check it?

For Audio driver, It list in Taiwan site latest version be:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/zh-tw/download/29213/-Windows-10-64-Realtek-NUC10i7FN-NUC10i5FN-NUC...

  • Did you test different graphics drivers? Please list the versions.

[HPBird]: No, my intel graphic driver also will be Intel SUT attachment, it show "Driver Version: 27.20.100.9168", can you will have a look it?

  • Did you update the Operating System recently?

[HPBird]: No, I  will not changed any setting of operating system, include Microsoft Auto System Update.

My windows version still include the Intel SUT attachment, Can you have a look?

From the Intel SUT attachment, it show the current version is "Version:"10.0.19042 Build 19042"".

The detail version from "winver" command, it show "19042.868"

  • Was the same setup working fine with the previous BIOS version?

[HPBird]: I did not aware of the previous BIOS version work or not. The latest BIOS did not allow BIOS downgrade. You can have a try if your NUC not yet upgrade the latest BIOS.

= = = = =

 

[Question]:

Can you get from your QA teams, it should have list the audio driver testing version, Does it can get from formal internet link?

Hi Intel,

After update the new Intel GFX driver, the microphone record sound too small is not improve.

 

For #1, #2, #3 have confirm the stepping, it is not improve.

 

Just provide some user experience, If un-installed the Realtek audio driver, next reboot, win10 will installed the default HD audio driver, the microphone is work well.

Later, win10 will find the best Realtek audio driver, after win10 installed it, the  microphone record sound will be small, Can you have a testing on your site.

I mean, microphone is work, but the record sound is very very small, it is not normalize.

Hello HPBird

  

There is an investigation open for your request. For the testing process, can you please confirm if this happens with other applications as well?

Which specific driver version is the one to work? (Before Windows automatically updates)
