    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:

    Driver Version: 10.0.17134.1

  3. Built-in Microphone not picking up voice correctly.

    Hello. I am using Windows 10 Inspiron ONE2330, which is a desktop computer. I have been having a problem with my built-in microphone. Every time when I talk into it, it barely picks up my voice. I would only hear my voice, but muffled very badly. This problem
    has been around for the last two to three months. During that time I was trying to find a solution to the problem or someone with a very similar problem but I have not found any. I have checked my settings and I have also troubleshooted the problem but nothing
    has solved anything. I've opened the settings tested if it would pick up my voice, and the green bar for it was very low. I have even checked to see if my microphone's drivers need to be updated. I realized that they needed to be updated, but each time I updated
    them they'd still say the same date of the last update as before. Also, it is still saying that there are still available updates for the drivers. I do know that this computer is over two years old so I was suspecting that there was dust clogging up the microphone.
    The thing is I do not know where the built-in microphone is located in my computer. Does anybody know how to fix this problem? If so, thanks in advance.
