    Microphone detected but no input sound

    Mic suddenly stopped working (it was working properly yesterday night).

    The input device is showing properly:

    Microphone detected but no input sound 1f42e4f0-06f0-4264-8580-67989a20adc8?upload=true.png

    Windows even detects when I connect it to the front or the back jack. So it's being detected properly.

    Today I booted the computer and no sound was being captured.

    Some environment data:

    - The mic works fine (tested in a different computer)

    - The output sound works fine (in all the possible outputs: headset by front/back jack, NVIDIA gfx to the monitor)

    - As far as I know, no update was applied

    - Motherboard model: ASUS ROG STRIX Z270F GAMING LGA1151 DDR4 DP HDMI DVI M.2 ATX Motherboard with USB 3.1


    - Installing sound drivers from ASUS site

    - Installing drivers from windows device manager (nothing happened, already best ones installed)

    - Uninstalling the sound device, restart, and let Windows detect the sound device + install drivers

    - Installing the 2018-11 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1803 for x64-based Systems (KB4467682)

    Sound from input devices only detected when i listen to this device.


    I have a very strange bug happening here. At first i thought my microphone didn't work anymore, because the green vu-meter didn't react, and no software detected any input from it either.

    So i tried a lot of fixes suggested on the internet, but discovered it was something stranger…

    Even if i plugged my microphone in another sound card, or created a virtual input device, the sound was detected by the vu-meter only… When i activated «listen to this device». And even when i do this, no software accept the input, detecting absolutely no
    sound whatsoever.

    I am still hesitating to reinstall windows entirely, but i wondered if there was a simpler solution before.

    (Excuse me if some sentences are approximate, english is not my native language)

    Microphone not detecting sound

    I'm having issues with microphones on my computer not picking up sound. They appear in the device manager fine, but aren't detecting any sound.

    This has occurred with several different microphones, including the built-in microphone, two USB microphones, and a 3.5mm microphone. Headphones and the speakers work fine as well.

    I have tried reinstalling drivers and has noticed no difference. I have also confirmed that the microphones are unmuted in the sound options.
