    Microphone Problems (Please Help)

    Hi Larry,

    We'd like to verify a few things in order for us to assist you effectively. Kindly confirm the following:

    Were there any recent changes made to your computer prior to the issue? (Windows update, software or hardware installation, etc.)

    • Do you get an error when you're trying to use your microphone?
    • What is the make and model of your microphone?
    • How did you install your microphone to your Windows 10 PC? Kindly verify if the steps below are the same as the steps you have performed:

    To install a new microphone, follow these steps:


    • Right-click (or press and hold) the volume icon on the taskbar and select
      Recording Devices
      .

    • In the Recording tab, select the microphone or recording device you'd like to set up. Select
      Configure.

    • Select Set up microphone, and follow the steps of the
      Microphone Setup Wizard
      .

    To test a microphone that has already been installed:


    • Right-click (or press and hold) the volume icon on the taskbar and select
      Recording Devices
      .

    • In the Recording tab, look for green bars rising as you speak into your recording device. If the bars are moving, your device is connected and working properly.
