    2 High Definition Audio Controllers in my device manager and my microphone and headset not...


    Inside my device manager, there is currently 2 "High Definition Audio Controllers" appearing under the system devices drop-down. One has the normal icon but one has the icon with the yellow triangle exclamation mark. At the same time, my pc has stopped detecting my headset and microphone in the audio settings. Please Help.

    :)

  2. Computer won't recognize headset microphone


    2 High Definition Audio Controllers in my device manager and my microphone and headset not... [​IMG]


    This is what i see in device manager. Im not sure if the Speakers/Headphones (Realtek High Definition Audio) is the one your saying to disable, as that is what is default in playback devices in the sounds panel.

    Setting Stereo Mix as the default recording device and disabling everything else still didnt get the mic working, even when the headset is plugged into the microphone only audio port or the mic + sound audio port.

    Computer Not Using and or Not recognizing Headset Microphone


    Recently I got a gaming headset but upon plugging in the headset my microphone jack, I realized my computer was not picking up audio from the headset mic. I have looked through other forums but I still cannot find a solution to this problem. I have looked at the sound settings and saw that under the recording category, It shows a second microphone device that is only accessible by plugging in my headset. But when doing so I've noticed that when talking into my headset mic the recordings menu does not show any signs of sound. But if I tap my headset the sound meter goes up. This makes me think that my computer only picks up sounds around the headset and not the mic itself.

    Here is an URL to my Microsoft support question there you can see a picture as well as some replies primarily by me.

    Other Info
    1) For my sounds, video and game controllers in the Device Manager I have High Definition Audio Device and Intel(R) Display Audio listed.
    2) I have a windows 7 upgraded to windows 10

    IDT High Definition Audio CODEC Not Working

    Taking those steps changed the devices in the playback (now they're "2- High Definition Audio Device" instead of "IDT High Definition Audio CODEC". But unfortunately, I still cannot
    hear anything, though it did fix my problem where my microphone would say "Currently unavailable".
