  1. Microphone barely picking up audio


    I downloaded a voicemod and it's been messed ever since then.

    I've uninstalled the voicemod but it still picks up barely any audio.

    I've restarted my computer, reset all settings to default, got a new headset, and all my drivers are ok.

    Some said to right click the audio icon and click "Recording" but no such option is available.

    :)

  2. Microphone barely picking up voices

    My microphone on my computer barely picks up anything, even when close to it or even yelling. I tried boosting the frequency but that did nothing but change the speed it picks up but not the range. Anyone know how? Here's the Microphone specification details:

    Microphone (High Definition Audio Driver)

    Driver Properties: Microsoft

    Driver Date: 6/21/2006

    Driver Version: 10.0.17134.1

    Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows

  3. Microphone barely picking up any sound

    I have a Lenovo Ideapad L340 and use the built in microphone which is a RealTek , never had an issue with it. Talked with people using my laptop this morning, all good. Went out for lunch, came back and now it barely picks up any sound, nothing changed as
    far as I know, didn't even turn off my laptop. When I use the "test" option on the mic and talk the bar goes to maybe 5% at most, no one can hear me. Apps like discord and OBS aren't picking up basically any sound, you hear a low whisper if you pay attention.
    The "get help" app suggested I update the drivers, I did and restarted laptop after but it's still the same, audio trouble shoot says everything is working.

    Why is my input so low all of a sudden and how do I fix it please?

    Thank you

    Microphone picks up headphone audio.

    Hi,

    A microphone is a sound receiver device that can record sounds and convert it to an audio file. To help us identify your concerns with your microphone, we’d like to ask you a few questions:

    • What is the exact brand and model of your microphone?
    • Which version or build of Windows device are you using? To know, press
      Windows + R
      to open the Run window. Type winver and press
      Enter. A new window will open showing the version and build number of your Windows device.
    • What were the recent changes made on your computer before you experienced this issue?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Did you receive any error messages?
    • Did you use this microphone normally before? If yes, can you tell us if this was working properly?
    • Have you already contacted your manufacturer of your microphone for troubleshooting instructions?
    • Can you check if the device was installed properly in the Device Manager? To check it, follow these steps:
    1. Press Windows key + X.

    2. Click Device Manager.

    3. Expand Sound, Video and game controllers.

    4. Check if the devices under it have a yellow exclamation mark.
