    Microphone not working when on Zoom/Skype or when trying to record my audio


    Hi,

    I have an Acer latop with Windows 10.

    For some reason I can't work out, my microphone is not working when I try to speak to people on Zoom/Skype calls, or when I want to record my voice when putting together presentations - eg Powerpoint.

    I've been through all the suggestions re testing the microphone and ensured all settings are correct, and everything is telling me the microphone is functioning fine. I've also been through all my Zoom and Skype settings to ensure that they are set up to work with my microphone Realtek HDA, as that I'm unmuted.

    But when I try to talk to people on Zom etc, or when I try to record my own audio, there's nothing.

    Anyone had a similar problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    :)

    Audio recording settings / microphone settings on skype not working

    Hi Bill,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    There is an option ‘Automatically adjust microphone settings’ in Skype. Try adjusting Skype sound in the application by following the below steps:



    a. Open Skype.

    b. Navigate to Tools > Options > Audio Settings > Microphone.

    c. Select the default device.

    d. Uncheck the ‘Automatically adjust microphone settings’.

    Also, I suggest you to adjust Skype sound in the control panel to fix the recording issues. You can do this by following the below steps:

    a. Open ‘Control panel’.

    b. Select ‘Sounds and Audio Devices’.

    c. Click on ‘Playback’ tab.

    d. Verify that nothing is set to mute.

    e. Verify that microphone is checked under the ‘Recording’ tab.

    Try updating Skype, if any update is available. Please follow the above steps and get back if the issue persists.

    Hope it helps.
