  1. Microphone does not work


    I tested my microphone in my computer, I see green bars when I check the driver and the blue bar moves up and down when I test it in sounds. So it works, yet when I use voice recorder, camera video or any online program my voice is not recognized or I hear nothing in the playback. Now I checked privacy settings and enabled everything. I troubleshooted the microphone, but it says everything is fine. But Cortana, voice recorder, camera video or any of my desktop apps cannot access the microphone even though I already gave them permission. Is there any way to fix this because it was working last Friday. After I updated my computer to take a test as I usually do, on Sunday it has not worked since. I followed all the instructions in Cortana can't hear me, yet none of them work. I would appreciate a solution to this problem.


    Thank you very much.

    :)

    External microphone does not work

    Hi Zarbab,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    The issue could be because of the microphone being in a disabled state. I suggest you to try the steps listed below and check if it works:



    • Open Control Panel and categorize to view by
      Small Icons.
    • Click on Speech Recognition and navigate to
      Advanced Speech Options > Microphone > Advanced
    • Check Real Conexant HD Audio, save the changes and exit
      Control Panel.
    • Restart the machine to see if the microphone works.


    Meanwhile, you may also want to go through the troubleshooting suggestions given in the following articles and see if they help:



    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards,
