  1. Is anyone else's microphones not working?


    I am trying to get my headsets microphone to pick up audio but it doesn't work. The headset works fine but the microphone doesn't pick anything up. I have tried everything. Privacy settings for the mic, updating drivers for the mic, trying to use earbuds as a mic, i even tried to plug it into another computer running windows 10. I can't figure out why it refuses to work. I think it might be the latest windows update but I can't tell.

    :)

    Microphone suddenly stopped working

    My microphone is still not working. I even checked the BIOS as someone had suggested but there is no listing for the microphone in there.
