  1. Podcast microphone crashing as soon as I share my screen in Google Meets or Slack



    I use a podcast microphone HyperX QuadCast S mainly for work meeting calls and gaming on Windows 10.


    In gaming I have no issues, however when I have work related calls and have to share my screen either through Google Meets on various browsers or Slack, microphone just crashes, windows device unplugged notification goes off, then few milliseconds later it turns on again, with the same windows sound. As soon as it turns on again, the sound that I receive through the audio jack on the microphone for microphone monitoring is completed distorted and not understandable at all. At that point the only way to fix the distortion is to unplug the microphone from PC and plug it back in.


    The microphone will continue to constantly crash and restart in the same manner until I stop sharing my screen.


    I have tried everything I can to fix this, using different USB ports, removing and letting windows install new drivers, setting the microphone as default mic, removing realtek audio drivers and letting windows pick the right drivers. Performing a complete windows re-install and testing with absolutely nothing but windows drivers installed. I have even did an RMA of the microphone, the replacement microphone is also experiencing the exact same issues. I tested on a macbook, and none of these issues are happening.


    My webcam is Logitech 4K Brio, if I use built in microphone I have none of these issues and everything works as expected.


    The microphone uses drivers provided by Microsoft, the problem must lie in there. What should I do? Contact Microsoft?


    :)

  2. Google Meet is automatically adjusting my microphone volume in Windows 10. I'd like it to stop.

    I use Google Meet for work. There's no getting around this, as my company uses it for every meeting. However, I've had issues where my microphone volume will go silent or peak at 100 seemingly randomly during
    meetings. I went to check my settings in Windows and sure enough the microphone's volume slider was at 0 or 100. Out of curiosity, I left the Microphone Properties window open during a Google Meet meeting and I could see the volume slider move as
    I spoke.

    • There is no setting on Google Meet to disable automatic gain.
    • I've unchecked "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" under the Advanced tab in Windows.
    • I've updated my microphone's drivers.
    • I've uninstalled and reinstalled the microphone in the Device Manager.
    • I used my Logitech webcam's microphone to see if I had the same issue there (I did).
    • I used Google Meet in Opera, Firefox, and Edge to see if it was a Google Chrome issue (it isn't; the issue happened on each browser, for both mics).
    • I installed a script using nircmd to set the microphone volume to 50 every second, which is a band-aid fix for the slider moving around, but...

    Now I have issues where my microphone volume will drop to a very low volume, and turning the volume slider to 100 doesn't fix it. In fact, nothing resets it except doing a system restore. But a system restore doesn't prevent these issues from happening again.
    I'm guessing adjusting the volume slider at the same time Google Meet adjusts the volume causes an issue, but this is just a guess.

    I really need help. I'm stuck using Google Meet, and I'd prefer to continue using this Windows 10 machine as it makes life easier (minus this specific issue). Does anyone have any advice or suggestions?

    Here are some general specs:

    • Windows 10 Home 64-bit
    • AMD Ryzen 7 1700X
    • 32.0GB Dual-Channel Unknown @ 1066MHz (15-15-15-36)
    • Micro-Star International Co. Ltd X370 GAMING PRO CARBON (MS-7A32) (AM4)
    • 3071MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (MSI)
