  1. Microphone not working


    It worked fine for a while then out of nowhere stopped. I either get no feedback or 100% static feedback. the headset and mic work fine on other devices like my laptop but not on my desktop. Everything seems to be plugged in as well as possible and everything is updated so I don't know what to do next. Also I'm not a big computer person so expect little knowledge on anything PC

    :)

    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:
