    External mic isn't working on Bootcamp Mac running Windows 10


    I'm on a Bootcamp mac running Windows 10. I can confirm that both the headphones sound and the headphones mic work when I'm running Mac OS. I can get sound through the headphones when I'm on Windows 10, but the mic just defaults to the built-in. When I go into settings, it just says Cirrus Logic speakers and microphone. I can't use the built-in mic because I really need to talk on just voice calls and gaming, which makes the fans on my computer super loud, blocking out my voice. From what I've seen online, this is a pretty common issue, but I haven't been able to find a solid solution. It's not just these headphones, I've used two different sets of earbuds too.

    :)

  2. Printer isn´t working after latest update.

    After the latest update from Windows, my Canon Pixma ip6600 printer isnt working. In Device Manager it shows up as working properly but when I go to print it isn´t listed as an option in any programs. Troubleshoot suggests it´s a USB 2 printer on a USB
    3 port and that that´s the problem but that cant be since it worked fine before the update. I´ve tried to uninstall and plug it back in but that doesn´t work either.

  3. External display not working in Windows 10 on Bootcamp on Macbook Pro

    Hi There,

    I've got a Macbook Pro 2018 and I'm running Bootcamp with Windows 10. I'm trying to connect my computer to an external display. The external display works on my Mac side, but it is not working on the Windows
    side. When I restart my computer on the Windows side, the external display shows the screen for about 2 seconds, then it turns off again. In my settings, the external display can't be recognised.

    any help please!

    Thanks

    Windows 10 Bootcamp Installation: Mic isn't appearing

    I have a Mac Mini with two audio jacks, one I use for headphones. I use apple earbuds, and they've always worked as a mic for Skype calls. Recently, I've installed Windows 10 on my Mac using Boot-camp, and the mic in my earbuds isn't working. The audio works
    fine, but the mic does not register. After some troubleshooting, I found the "recording devices" tab in Device Manager, and I found that my earbuds do not even appear on the list. It says Line-In (not connected) and Digital Audio. I've seen a lot of help suggesting
    to update the drivers, but how can I update the drivers if the earbuds don't even appear? Is it a hardware issue? Thanks!

    UPDATE: I also tried plugging a USB Blue Snowball mic in--same problem.
