    Microphone for windows 10 is bad. Help!


    Hello, recently my mic for my laptop has become really bad, as my friends said that I sound as if I am speaking through something that is covering my mic. They can barely hear what I am saying and when I listened to myself, all I basically heard was static and other noises and I can barely hear myself. I've tried to uninstall my mic and reinstall it, change my mic, troubleshoot, look for an update and restart my computer but nothing works. Please help, as I have an ASUS laptop and will like to find a fix to my mic. Thank You.

    :)

    Microphone Problems (Please Help)

    Hi Larry,

    We'd like to verify a few things in order for us to assist you effectively. Kindly confirm the following:

    Were there any recent changes made to your computer prior to the issue? (Windows update, software or hardware installation, etc.)

    • Do you get an error when you're trying to use your microphone?
    • What is the make and model of your microphone?
    • How did you install your microphone to your Windows 10 PC? Kindly verify if the steps below are the same as the steps you have performed:

    To install a new microphone, follow these steps:


    • Right-click (or press and hold) the volume icon on the taskbar and select
      Recording Devices
      .

    • In the Recording tab, select the microphone or recording device you'd like to set up. Select
      Configure.

    • Select Set up microphone, and follow the steps of the
      Microphone Setup Wizard
      .

    To test a microphone that has already been installed:


    • Right-click (or press and hold) the volume icon on the taskbar and select
      Recording Devices
      .

    • In the Recording tab, look for green bars rising as you speak into your recording device. If the bars are moving, your device is connected and working properly.
