  3. Built in microphone not working

    Hi,



    If the issue still persists, I suggest you to perform the below methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1: Hardware Troubleshooter

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with hardware and devices. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with your Microphone. Refer these steps:

    • 1. Press Windows key +X, select Control panel

      2. Change the view by option on the top right to Large icons

      3. Click on troubleshooting and click on the view all option on the left panel

      4. Run the Hardware and devices.
    Check if it helps.



    If the issue persists, I suggest you to download and install the latest audio drivers from the computer manufacturer website and check if it helps.



    I hope the information helps. Please keep us posted on the issue. We will be happy to assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.

    Built in Microphone

    SurfaceBook built in microphone

    All

    SB had issue (twice now) where the Realtek built-in microphone didn't work when I was skyped. Rather than shutting down and rebooting the whole SB, I tried in Sound/Properties to disable the device so I could then enable the device.

    But when I disabled, the microphone disappeared completely. Tried reinstalling drivers, uninstalled Realtek drivers, and reinstalled. Bluetooth headset works. Plugged in (3.5 mm) headset works - but not the built in microphone as it doesn't even appear
    in the list.

    Called MS tech support, but all they know how to do is read off a script. There last suggestion was to re-install the machine. Sounds like a sledgehammer for a fly solution.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
