  1. Microphone not working in Windows 10


    Hello everyone. Today I realized that my microphone doesn't work. I am using a headset that has a microphone built in. When checking the device manager to see if it shows that my mic is plugged in, it says it isn't. I have tried plugging in my headset to every audio jack, and tried every playback device I can. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    :)

    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,
