    Microphone suddenly stopped working


    All of a sudden my microphone stopped working, it wasnt just my headset, none of my mics were working. I eventually plugged my controller in and my headset into the controller headphone jack and that was working. However, soon enough it stopped working as well. Pls help im on windows 10.

    :)

    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.

    Microphone suddenly stopped working

    Hi,

    I have an HP G61 laptop, and I upgraded to Win 10 last weekend, it was working ok other than the fact that it is much slower than Win 7 that I was on before, but today as I was doing a Skype call my microphone stopped working. My son hit the power button
    and when the computer came back on the microphone didn't work. I've tried all your steps that are posted elsewhere and nothing works. I'm not impressed Microsoft, get your stuff working before you release it!!!
