    Problem with Microphone


    Hello
    I just tried to use a microphone with my Windows 10 - 64 bits

    After several tries, I got the sound going from the microphone through the speakers

    But I am unable to "connect" the microphone to any sound application : the microphone is not recognized

    Thanks for your help

    Have a good day

    PS I add a screen capture of the sound devices

    :)

  3. Cortana Microphone headset problems.

    Hi Mike,

    Thank you for using Windows 10.

    I understand your concern. I suggest you to follow the steps:

    • Open settings by clicking thee windows icon the click settings.
    • Search Sound in the top right corner and click it.
    • Then right click the one device you want to use, then click default communication device.
    • Then try Cortana.
    As you've already set up microphone but I would suggest you to check again by typing microphone set up and go through that, it should set everything up for you.

    Hope it helps. Let us know if you need more assistance and we'll be glad to help.

    Problem with Microphone

    Microphone issues

    Hi Michael,

    Here are the possible reasons why you're getting an error "The microphone did not pick anything up" when using it:

    • Incorrect settings (microphone is not set as default device)
    • Corrupted or outdated driver
    • Faulty device

    For us to isolate the issue, we'd like to know the following:

    • Were there any changes made to your computer prior to this issue(e.g. Windows updates)?
    • Have you tried connecting other microphone to your computer?
    • Have you tried connecting the microphone to the other computer?

    In the meantime, we suggest running the Recording Audio Troubleshooter to find and repair problems with recording sound. We also suggest checking if your microphone is set as your default recording device. For troubleshooting steps, please see
    Geethu B's on this
    link.

    We're looking forward to your reply.
