  1. Microphones not working


    My recording devices are all messed up. The issue is when i plug them in installs drivers and everything fine but when i try use them it just glitches out the input devices on the sound settings. It will show up then disappear and then repeat. I have tried it with 2 mics both are usb mics. I have tried using all usb ports doesn't work. Restart pc, Update drives, using different wires still doesn't work. And i have nothing else to try, only thing i can think of now is to reset my 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:
