I have a lenovo y520 laptop with fedora 28 64-bit installed. When I boot the laptop into fedora, sometimes the mic isn't working. At other times upon boot, the mic works out of the box without me touching anything.

I have tried several approaches like playing with alsamixer, playing with pavucontrol, and other tricks with no luck. If after boot it's working then it'll continue to work. If it isn't working then no matter what I do it'll continue to not work, which tells me that neither of the aforementioned methods would really touch on the root cause.

I have blacklisted ideapad-laptop kernel module as when activated it completely prevents wifi from working. Even enabling it back doesn't solve the problem.

I had the same problem before with fedora 27 64-bit.

Has anyone faced the same problem and found a solution?

Thanks in advance for your help and support.

Hi there. I have the same problem with an ideapad 520S laptop from Lenovo. I have no solution, how about you, did you figure it out ?
