  1. PC suddenly freezing but mouse and audio speaker and mic are still working


    Hi! My problem started a month ago when i updated to windows 11. My PC would suddenly freeze but my mouse was still working and audio was still working i was in a call with friends when this first happened and my mic was still working and i could still hear my music and them. The problem would usually occur when opening or just playing a game called Valorant and it usually happens when the game is running and i alt + tab to open a file, open an app or just open a new tab in my browser and i have to hard shut down it using the power button. I have tried re installing windows 11 using a USB dr

  2. Mic suddenly stopped working, tried everything...


    Hey guys,

    So I put together a new PC running Windows 10 Pro around 3 months ago and everything was working perfect till 2 days ago when my mic suddenly stopped working. I use a Steelseries Siberia V2 headset and the headphones work fine, but the mic is not picking up any noise at all. I tried plugging in both the back and front ports and my realtek always detects that a mic has been plugged in, but it simply won't work. I thought maybe my mic got busted so I also tried using an A4 Tech headset that I had lying around in the office but it has the same issue, the mic won't work. I looked around online for possible solutions and tried the following with no luck:


    • Ensured the mic was set as the default device and that its volume settings were maxed out.
    • Tried disabling all sound effects (noise suppression, acoustic echo cancellation etc).
    • Uninstalled all audio drivers and reinstalled the latest realtek drivers on my motherboard's webpage: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1151 - GA-Z170MX-Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0)
    • Uninstalled all audio drivers and reinstalled the latest realtek drivers on realtek's own webpage: Realtek
    • Uninstalled all audio drivers and let Windows auto-install drivers.
    • I even uninstalled all realtek drivers and tried using the standard "high definition audio device drivers."

    Basically tried everything in this link: Microphone Not Working in Windows 10? | Win 10 FAQ

    The conclusion was the same with everything I tried, the sound worked fine in both my speakers and headphones, but the mics simply didn't work. What's strange is that it just stopped working out of nowhere. I didn't install any new software or hardware or make any changes prior to the issue. Just turned the PC on one day and boom, mics not working.

    I am completely stumped now and have no idea what to try next. I've attached screenshots of what my mic settings looked like with the realtek drivers and without. Really hope someone can help me figure out what went wrong.

    Thanks in advance!

  3. Mic/Headphone ports not working correctly - Acer Aspire 7745

    The speakers are 'plugged in' already as it is a laptop. With no external mic, headphones or external speakers plugged in, the Sound Control Panel lists three things under 'Playback' - HDMI, 'Speakers' and 'Realtek Digital Output' - the Speakers under 'Playback' is set as the default.

    Under 'Recording' with no external mic plugged in these are listed - 'Microphone', 'Line In' and 'Stereo Mix' (Disabled) - the microphone (in this case, the internal one) is set to 'Default' under 'Recording' as well.

    I don't have my headset here to test an external mic right now, but with normal external headphones plugged in, there is no change to the Sound Control Panel under 'Playback' - the same three listings (HDMI, 'Speakers' and 'Realtek Digital Output') with 'Speakers' set as the Default. If I make a noise, say, play a video, I can see the sound meters move to the sound, but no sound comes out of the headphones.

    PC suddenly freezing but mouse and audio speaker and mic are still working

    Front Panel Headphones and Mic not working.

    Hey Everyone,

    Mobo : ASUS M2N MX SE
    Processor : AMD Athlon X2 5200+
    OS : Windows XP Professional SP2 x86

    My Rear panel Speakers and mic works all fine. I got a new set of headphones(with mic) when i connect it to the front panel they don't work. NO SOUND OUTPUT.

    I updated the audio drivers. I tried a few many things but I still can't get them running.
    My default Sound Manager is Realtek HD Audio Manager.

    Please help me get my Front Panel working. A step-by-step guide would be better.
    Thanks.
