My microphone was disabled in the install of Win 10. I have a Toshiba Satellite A505-S6960. Nothing has a problem in the Device Manager but when I click on the Microphone driver detail is says "No driver files have been required or have been loaded for
this device." I reloaded the drivers as well and windows said the operation was successful. Still no mic operation.
This issue might occur if the drivers for the microphone are not compatible or are not installed
successfully on the Windows 10 Technical preview.
