MSI GS70 Stealth Pro 607 mic not working


Aug 19, 2015
I recently purchased the MSI GS70 Stealth Pro 607 (5th Gen Intel). It came with Win 8.1, but I upgraded to Win 10. The internal mic will not work. I have uninstalled the audio/mic drivers and reinstalled fresh ones (RealTek) from the MSI support page. I also installed the new Nahimic audio utility (MSI no longer uses Soundblaster Creative I guess). I'm fresh out of ideas, please advise.

And yes, I've gone to the sound properties, checked that the mic settings are all maxed out and the exclusive control option is disabled. The mic settings are also maxed out in the Nahimic control panel.
