    Sennheiser GSP 350. Microphone stops working when I open any game

    Wow, ok. I think I've fixed it by accident while fiddling around.

    It appears to be the Realtek audio being the issue here. I don't use my onboard sound card as my headset is a USB headset only and my speakers are plugged into an ASUS sound card.

    Step by step fix:
    • I went into recording devices
    • I enabled STEREO MIX (Realtek High Definition Audio)
    • Then I set that Stereo Mix as the DEFAULT DEVICE (At this point it took over both input and output devices without my permission )
    • Then set my Sennheiser headset as default recording and playback devices in their respective windows even though they both still said they were the default devices when they weren't
    Headset microphone is currently functioning while in game now. I'll update the thread if it goes again. Should I completely disable Realtek audio??? Or will windows just force it to work again?

    Realtek Microphone Array Stopped Today -- Windows Update

    Hi:

    Windows update today delivered 5 Realtek updates. The built-in microphone array has stopped working.

    My machine is an Intel NUC8i3BEH.

    Sound out is working through two outlets. The PC can get sound from the mic on my Bluetooth headset.

    The built-in microphone array does not work in 3 sound-related apps, all of which get sound from the BT headphone mic.

    Windows troubleshooter finds nothing.

    I have downloaded and installed the Realtek Audio driver from Intel's web site (6.0.8716.1). No change.

    There is no way to uninstall the Realtek updates delivered today by Windows Update.

    Microphone suddenly stopped working

    My microphone is still not working. I even checked the BIOS as someone had suggested but there is no listing for the microphone in there.
