    Microphone Muted


    I have a HP Envy all in one computer that is running Windows 10. My computer is updated to the latest version of Windows and I have gone to the HP

    support website to make sure I have the latest audio drivers for my computer. After the latest update to Windows 10 my microphone is muted.

    I have run the troubleshooter app for audio and nothing seems to help. Under device manager sounds and recordings the microphone is muted under levels and it will not allow me to unmute it. I have tried uninstalling drivers and reinstalling but to no avail. It was working before and now it is not.

    Has any one else had this problem or have any answers to my problem? Thank you!

    :)

    microphone mutes itself


    When i go into properties the mike is muted. When I unmute it works for less than a minute then mutes again. The only suggestion I have found is set as default device which does not solve problem. I have also read it is a virus but I cannot solve with malware or virus scans. It first became a problem just a few weeks ago while skyping. Never had a problem with mike until then.

    Troubleshooter finds the microphone muted and fixes, Within a minute the microphone mutes itself again.

    muting microphone


    Same issue. Windows 10 mutes the microphone only for Google Hangouts.
    I found it muted when I go to Sounds and I unmute but still doesn't work.

    Troubleshooted from the sound icon and the mute issue didn't even come up as an issue.

    Searched on microphone in search and then troubleshooted it from there (the troubleshooting looked different from there) and it came up that the microphone had been muted and was fixed. And guess what? I could use my microphone again.

    I have found it will just mute itself again for no reason that I can find out.
