Ubuntu – No microphone in Ubuntu 18.04 on HP elitebook

18.04alsasound

I installed Ubuntu 18.04 on my new HP elitebook 850 G6 after erasing windows. I could not get audio input part working though..
Fn F8 key is orange all the time and this is how settings looks like.

I installed pavucontrol, but that didn't change anything. What I have noticed is that I cannot check "set as fallback" permanently.

Also tried editing /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf by adding

options snd-hda-intel model=auto

Sound control still does not recognize any microphone

I have installed dconf-editor and dconf after start of the gui the search-function is active and you could use the keyboard. The keyword "volume" drives to a button named "use-mediakeys" on or off?
