  1. Devices and Printers


    Hello,

    I use a Lenovo laptop user.


    System info-

    Intel

    core i3

    7th Gen


    The operating system used is Windows 10. So there's a problem which I am facing. I just recently downloaded Realtek audio manager. And I updated my drivers. And usually when i use my voice recorder, there is no problem I am facing. But, when I need to use it in apps like Google Chrome, Whats app, etc. It asks me for the permission to use my microphone. So, when its needed I do give them the access but still chrome says that my microphone is not working properly and it says that it is not able to detect any voice.


    Please reply to my question because I really need the solution to this problem.


    Thanks

    :)

  3. Printer not printing after installing the device on the PC on Windows 10.

    Hi Yitzchak,

    I suggest you to uninstall and re-install the printer as a work around and check if it helps.

    Step 1: Uninstall the printer:


    • Press “Windows + X” keys on the keyboard.

    • Click on “Device Manager” from that list.

    • Search for the “Printer” device from the device list, right click on it and then select “Uninstall”. On the un-installation window, if you have an option: “Delete the driver software for
      this device
      ” you may select that and then remove its drivers from the computer.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete it and the restart the computer if prompted.


    You may also uninstall any related software provided by the printer manufacturer from the computer from “Programs and Features”. For this, you may follow these steps:


    • Press “Windows + X” keys on the keyboard and select “Programs and Features” from that list.

    • Search for any software provided by the printer manufacturer in the program list and if available, you may select it and click on “Uninstall” to remove it from the computer.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete it and the restart the computer if prompted.


    Step 2: Install a Printer

    Refer to the below link about: Install a printer

    Hope this helps.
