  2. Skype "can't access sound card" for microphone

    Hi,

    As you are facing issues with accessing the microphone on Skype. Do not worry we will help you with this issue.

    We appreciate your time spent in resolving the issue.

    • Do let us know if you have made any changes to the operating system prior to this issue?
    • Which version of Skype have you installed on your computer?

    As a workaround, I suggest you to check if there are any updates for the Skype app in Windows Store. If so, try to install the updates and check if it helps.

    Also, I recommend you to check with the settings in Skype app.

    Step 1: Check configuration in Skype

    Normally, you will receive the message about recording device error, if the microphone or the webcam is not configured properly in Skype.



    To check configuration:

    • Open Skype and navigate to tools
    • Click options and check for sound device.


    Step 2: Verify in the recording tab if the Microphone is enabled and working.

    To check:

    • Click Start, click Control Panel
    • Click Soundand click Audio.


    Hope it helps. Update us the status with the error message on Skype for further assistance.

    Thank you.

  3. Microphone not working

    Hey there Carissa, could you try this for me?

    Open Settings.

    Click on Privacy.

    Click on Microphone.

    Turn on the Allow apps to access your microphone toggle switch.

    After completing the steps, you also want to make sure to check the list and enable microphone access for the apps you want, if they're currently disabled. In the case the feature isn't enable, click the Change button and turn on the toggle switch.

    Microphone detected by windows but mic doesn't work

    same happened to and this solved it, good luck

    If you're having trouble with your microphone, let's start by making sure your microphone has full permission to run in Windows. If your microphone is no longer detected after updating Windows 10, you may need to give apps permission to use it.

    • To let apps access the microphone, select the Start button, and then select Settings > Privacy > Microphone.

    • Under "Allow access to the microphone on this device", it should state, "Microphone access for this device is on." Select the
      Change button to make sure the setting is set to On.

    • Then make sure Allow apps to access your microphone is also set to On.

    • After allowing access to the microphone, you can choose which apps can access these features under Choose which apps can access your microphone.
