Hey. I'm working with a Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q701 which is supposed to have an internal microphone. But every time we attempt to use anything with the microphone it says there is an issue but never says what the issue is. In trying to find any settings to work with the microphone they don't seem to exist. It's possible a previous owner deleted the driver but I can't seem to find solutions for this anywhere. Any suggestions?

Microphones don't really need a driver.
Since this one is built-in, see if you can open the Sound Manager(check if the microphone is muted) or Device Manager(look for Microphone) and enable it.

Tried that already. Sound manager shows no devices installed and device manager doesn't seem to have anything that looks like a microphone.

Start > Settings > Control Panel > Sounds and Devices

Make sure the microphone is enabled/unmuted and that the volume isn't low.

If all fails, try reinstalling your audio/sound drivers.

Right. There's not even anything for me to enable or unmute. The computer makes it seem like there is no microphone at all.

I guess the microphone isn't being recognized by Windows.

Alright then, remove the existing sound driver, reboot your system and install it again.
If you don't have the sound driver setup, you can download it from the link I've posted above.

Please do that and post back.

Ok, problem fixed. Thanks for helping in a sort of round-about way. The driver comes along with its own software for adjusting the microphone properties that some bonehead must have deleted. Reinstalling the driver reinstalled the software and I was able to unmute the microphone. Thanks a lot.

Yeah, the software is the "Sound Manger" I was talking about earlier.

Cheers.
