  1. A lot of windows functions stopped working


    I use Windows 11 on Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Gen6. For the past two weeks I have not been able to use a lot of windows functions:- start menu on click the icon highlights as if it was open, but nothing happens- windows settings- windows update I can see update icon on the toolbar, but clicking on it doesn't do anything- choosing display settings from context menu shows error: "ms-settings:display" This file does not have an app associated with it for performing this action. Please install an app or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Apps Settings page. - menus

    :)

    Sennheiser GSP 350. Microphone stops working when I open any game

    Wow, ok. I think I've fixed it by accident while fiddling around.

    It appears to be the Realtek audio being the issue here. I don't use my onboard sound card as my headset is a USB headset only and my speakers are plugged into an ASUS sound card.

    Step by step fix:
    • I went into recording devices
    • I enabled STEREO MIX (Realtek High Definition Audio)
    • Then I set that Stereo Mix as the DEFAULT DEVICE (At this point it took over both input and output devices without my permission )
    • Then set my Sennheiser headset as default recording and playback devices in their respective windows even though they both still said they were the default devices when they weren't
    Headset microphone is currently functioning while in game now. I'll update the thread if it goes again. Should I completely disable Realtek audio??? Or will windows just force it to work again?
