    Audio issues when mic is used by program


    Recently I started having really bad stuttering after the most recent windows update and couldnt figure out any fixes whatsoever. I eventually ended up factory resetting windows and starting from scratch but after that all my audio sounded hollow and not right. I updated all the drivers and it was fine for a couple days. Then today whenever I launch an app that uses the microphone to my headset Razer Kraken Ultimates the audio cuts out and there is never any voice output. This also stops all programs that use audio from loading including spotify, youtube videos, discord, and even the sound settings in the settings app all basically crash after this point. Any help would be amazing

    :)

  2. Mic issue with Realtek

    Hi,

    I would suggest you to first check if the MIC is set as the default device. Right click on the volume bar in the notification area and then click on 'recording' devices. In the recording tab, right click in the MIC and click 'Set as Default' and then check. If
    the issue still persists, I would suggest run the Audio troubleshooter and check. Press Windows key +X and then click on 'Control panel'. Click on 'Troubleshooting' and then click on the 'Audio troubleshooter' Try these steps and let us know the results.

    Issues with Mic? a MB issue? OS issue?

    shed some light here. i plugged my Mic. to front panel and the volume is louder but the issue with the Detection at first is still happening. i have to hit the *Detect Audio Devices button in order to get a better connection or whatever. i'll try what you suggested.
