    Realtek Built In Microphone Not Working


    So, the problem is occurring on an Asus computer, Windows 10. The microphone was recording fine, and suddenly it stopped. Running the test in sound picks up level 0 - 3 at all times. When I try to listen to it through playback, I get a piercing screeching noise, and incredibly muted sound. So far I've tried reinstalling the microphone, changing the levels, confirming it was enabled as a default device, and restarting the computer several times. I would appreciate any advice on how to fix this, as it's really inconvenient. Thanks in advance

    :)

    SurfaceBook built in microphone

    All

    SB had issue (twice now) where the Realtek built-in microphone didn't work when I was skyped. Rather than shutting down and rebooting the whole SB, I tried in Sound/Properties to disable the device so I could then enable the device.

    But when I disabled, the microphone disappeared completely. Tried reinstalling drivers, uninstalled Realtek drivers, and reinstalled. Bluetooth headset works. Plugged in (3.5 mm) headset works - but not the built in microphone as it doesn't even appear
    in the list.

    Called MS tech support, but all they know how to do is read off a script. There last suggestion was to re-install the machine. Sounds like a sledgehammer for a fly solution.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Built in Microphone not working

    Hello,

    I've been having a problem with my laptop (MSI GF63) Built it microphone that it's not picking any sound. It was working the day i bought the laptop (few weeks ago) and for some reasons it stopped working all of the sudden. I tried to check the privacy setting
    and it's all good and there's nothing interfering with the mic. I also tried to reinstalling the driver (Realtek HD audio) multiple times and still no luck. I even reset windows and It worked for a day (Before i shut the laptop down i believe) and it's not
    working again . The weird thing is when i try to "set up the microphone" the built in mic, the troubleshooter doesn't gave me the step where you try to speak to your mic and straight up just gave me "Your microphone might need to be set up" with the green
    checklist logo on the right still having the same problem.

    Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank You
