    My microphone does not work.


    I use a razor headset Do not know the type of model. It uses a splitter which is connected to my headset and back of my pc to work. recently my microphone has stopped working. By its self the headset mic works fine, which I tested on my phone. So I concluded its the splitter. Problem is, is that I tried a different splitter and no microphone connection at all. I need to figure out the problem if possible.

    :)

    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:
