    Mic picks up desktop audio in all programs


    I am using a USB splitter. With voice recorder and streamlabs, my desktop audio is picked up by the mic. I am using windows 10 2009, made sure stereo mix and listen to my device are disabled. Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    Muted mic picking up sound in game

    Hi JonPaul,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    The issue could be because of the internal mic picking up sound even when the external device is pluuged in. If you have the RealTek HD Audi Manager installed on the machine, I would suggest you to try the steps listed below and check if it works for
    you.



    • Open RealTek HD Audio Manager and go to the
      Advanced tab.
    • Check the boxes Separate all input jacks as independent input devices
      and Mute the internal output device, when external headphone is plugged in,
      and hit OK.
    • Exit RealTek HD Audio Manager, restart the machine and see if the issue persists.


    Regards,

  3. nokia lumia 920 mic problem

    I've also been having a mic issue for a while (four months), but all of the other discussions don't quite describe what I've experienced. I just upgraded to 8.1 hoping that would fix the issue, but it still hasn't been resolved. Here's what I'm experiencing
    (Lumia 920):

    • Mic does not pick up audio input to Cortana.
    • Mic does not pick up audio input when listening for music, although it always finds the exact same song (Spaceflight).
    • People I talk to say the audio is usually muffled somewhat. It seems to be random: Sometimes they hear me better on speaker, sometimes close to mic, and sometimes the call quality seems to become worse a few seconds into the call. Sometimes cycling
      the speaker on then off makes it better.
    • Using a bluetooth headset for audio input does work fine.
    • Mic does not pick up audio recordings (like in OneNote), tested making sure both mics were clear, then covered one mic, then the other. All I hear from the recording is straight static.
    • Phone does recognize whether or not headphones are plugged in (seemed to be a recurring issue among some).
    • Interestingly, mic DOES pick up audio in recorded videos.
    Troubleshooting steps:

    • Cleaned out holes on both mics.
    • Reboot phone.
    • Soft reset phone.
    • Update phone to WP 8.1 dev preview.
    The phone's over a year old, so yeah I know I'm not getting a warranty replacement or anything. I'm torn whether this is a hardware issue (because software updates don't seem to affect it) or a software issue (because there are limited circumstances where
    the issue doesn't occur). If it's a hardware issue I'll probably just get a new phone (a 930 would be sweet, but alas, I live in the US). If it's a software issue I'd like to know if there are any bug-fixing steps I can try.

    Mic picks up desktop audio in all programs

    Windows 10 (Realtek(R) Microphone not picking up any audio

    Im running windows 10 and have realtek driver version 10.0.19041.1 and its not picking up any audio with its internal mic. When I plug in a pair of headphones, mic seems to work fine and audio comes out fine as well, once unplugged the issue persists. Ive tried updating drivers, changing defaults, unmuting/increasing volume, disabling and re-enabling, but nothing worked. Any suggestions?
