  3. External microphone not showing in the Recording tab

    My Windows 10 laptop is not recognizing any external microphones. I have two headsets: a Bluetooth one and one for an audio jack. Both headsets work correctly on other devices. When I connect the headsets to my computer, I can hear audio, but the microphones
    do not work.

    Here are the steps I've taken so far:

    • Updated drivers (they were already up to date)
    • From Sound Settings, headsets do not appear as options for the input device
    • Ran the microphone troubleshooter - headsets do not appear as options
    • From Control Panel > Sound > Recording, headsets do not appear as options. I have selected the disabled and disconnected devices options.
    • From Microphone Privacy, all apps have access to the microphone.
    That's everything I found online to fix this problem. Any suggestions?

    External Microphone Problem

    I have the same problem on an HP laptop. I've looked for hours on forums, gone through all the troubleshooting steps on the HP help page for this issue, reinstalled/updated drivers, checked the microphone privacy setting, ran troubleshooting, etcetera.

    I'm running Windows10 on an HP laptop, and it refuses to see the microphone on the 3.5mm combo jack. The microphone works fine on an older Dell laptop with a dedicated microphone jack.

    Very frustrating, as even the HP help page notes that external microphones should work on the combo jack.
