    So I have been trying to solve this problem and this is probably my last try onto this. I have a g430 and I connect it with a USB adaptor that already comes with the headset (I use the Logitech G Hub software). So whenever I talk loud, scream, or use the "Soundpad" program, my microphone level in the properties lowers itself, and I just can't find a fix to it. Any ideas? I've already tried to:

    I want to keep it at 100

    1. Uninstall skype
    2. Disable the ''allow apps to control the microphone'' in exclusive mode or something
    3. Disable all the other recording devices in the sound panel
    4. Check ''don't do anything'' in the communications tab, again in the sound panel
    5. Check if some app were changing the level
    6. Create a .bat file to lock the volume at 100 (didn't work as expected)
    7. Check if there is a malware or spyware

    So I'm really sad that this is impossible to solve, and maybe the answer is right under my nose but I can't see it. So please help as I'm getting mentally abused. Thanks.

    Hi Hassan,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    If a mic connected to this computer isn’t working properly then it’s likely a settings problem.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    • Right-click on the speaker icon in the bottom-right part of the screen.

    • Click on ‘Recording Devices‘.

    • A list of recording devices will appear. Try speaking into your microphone, and see if there any
      green bars rising next to one of them while you talk.

    • If you don’t see any green bars skip to step 5.

    • Check if you can recognize which one of the devices in the list is your
      microphone. If you found it, click on it to highlight it, and then click
      Set Default.

    • Check again if you see green bars rising when you talk into the microphone. If you do your mic is now correctly setup. If not, continue to next step.

    • Double-click on the device that represents your microphone. The
      Microphone Properties window will appear. Click the Levels tab.

    • In the levels tab, drag the slider all the way to the right, until the number on the right says “100“.

    • Click OK and check if it helps.
    Hope it helps, reply to us with the status of your issue. We will be happy to assist you.

    Microphone Level self-lowering

    Speech recognition stops working/ switches from entering directly into the text to entering into a pop up box

    Hi Randa,

    Thank you for your response.

    Any chance your PC updated the system recently? Also, if Cortana is having difficulty hearing what you say, then we suggest doing the following the steps below. The steps are to manually adjust the gain for the voice recognition.

    • Right click on the speaker icon in the lower right hand corner of your desktop.

    • Select "Recording Devices".

    • Select your main input microphone.

    • Speak into the microphone

    • Note the sound level meter. You want the level meter to peak every so often at the top of the bar but still show good bounce during your spoken text.

    • Ensure the microphone input is still selected and click properties.

    • Click the Levels tab.

    • If you have a microphone boost set it in the middle.

    • Now adjust the microphone gain by moving the slider.

    • Click “Apply” and verify that the level meter is responding as described in step 5.

    We'll look forward to your response.
