    Problem Using Microphone With Windows 10


    Can anyone help me solve this issue with my microphone. I've just upgraded laptop to a Dell XPS with Windows 10. I have a USB condensor microphone, which is recognised by Windows when I plug it in, but as soon as I use Audacity or Voice Recorder, I get an error. Windows gives 'Your microphon isn't working error'.


    I've tried everything - restarted, removed from Windows etc. Then I saw a post on Amazon about another microphone, where someone was saying that apparently Skype causes issues. So I went into Skype and saw it does detect the microphone, and it works. ****? So I thought great, I'll remove Skype and the conflict should go... wrong. No other program will work with the microphone except for Skype.


    Any ideas? It worked perfectly on my old laptop, which was also Windows 10, so I can't understand it.

    :)
