Hi I'm using a VAIO SVF15N1A1J laptop, I just upgraded the storage to a Samsung 860EVO 2TB and reinstalled to the latest Windows 10.
For the past 3 weeks, I've had no issue, then since 2 days ago, my mic just stopped working, everything's turned on and supposed to allow mic function in the settings, privacy settings. When I open sounds settings, the classic one, that's where I see something really weird. The Mic is in full use, as if I'm screaming constantly into it, it's full green, and troubleshooting can't hear me as well. Over time it'll randomly work again, only to do this again. Then I noticed somethings stranger, you know how in the new winodws 10, when you use the mic, on the right side of the taskbar, you'll see a mic icon which tells you what's using your mic right? it's telling me that sounds is using my mic, and when i open settings, settings is using my mic....

Below are some snippets of what I'm seeing
