    System microphone picks up sound, returns intense feedback


    I need to do a Zoom conference meeting, but when I enable my microphone in my settings, and test it, it picks up every tiny noise and turns it into extremely 'shrieky' feedback. I need help getting my microphone to work.

    I've ran all system checks, and they say they can't diagnose or fix the problem.

    Windows 10 OS. Other than that, I am really not tech savvy, but I can follow directions.

    :)

  2. Microphone is picking up the laptop's sounds.

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your concern here in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about using Microphone as expected on Windows 10, we will assist you with this issue.

    I would suggest you to follow the below methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1:


    • Right click on the sound icon in the taskbar and select the
      Recording Devices menu.

    • In the Recording
      tab of Sounds window, you will notice the microphone which is active, i.e. the one with a green tick mark. Right click on the active microphone and select its
      Properties.

    • Select the Levels Tab. This tab exhibits you two sections:
      Microphone andMicrophone Boost.

    • Use the sliders to modify your volume settings. You can take the Microphone Boost slider up to +40 dB. To save the changes click on Ok.

    If you do the modification while the conversation goes on then you will get the immediate feedback of the output sound from the end user and so you can adjust the volume using the sliders as per requirement.

    Method 2:


    • Right click on Start to open the Power User Menu.

    • Click on Control panel and then on
      Sound.

    • Click on the Communication tab in the sound window. You will see four options under
      When Windows detects Communication activities.

    • Click on the radio button next to
      Do nothing. Click on Apply and then
      OK. You might need to restart the computer to implement the changes.

    Hope it helps. If you need further assistance, please do let us know and we would be happy to help you further.

    microphone speaker feedback

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    In order to help you with the appropriate troubleshooting steps, please reply with the following details:

    • When you say that, “you receive feedback between the microphone and the speaker” are you referring to the voice that repeats when you say something on the Microphone?
    • Are you using an inbuilt microphone or an external microphone? If you are using an external microphone, please help us with the make and model of the microphone.
    • Which version of Windows is installed on the computer currently? To check type:
      winver in the search bar on the Taskbar and hit Enter.

    If you want to listen to the things on your headphone that you say on the Microphone you can try changing the Listen to this device option for the Microphone that you are using and see if that helps. Please follow the steps mentioned below to change
    the settings.

    1. Right click on Sound icon on the
      Taskbar
      and select Open Sound Settings.
    2. Click on Sound Control Panel.
    3. Click on Recording tab.
    4. Double click on the Microphone that you are using.
    5. Click on Listen Tab.
    6. Select Listen to this device
      if you want to listen to your voice on the Headphone or Clear
      Listen to this device if you do not want to listen to your voice on the Headphone.
    7. Click on Apply and OK.

    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.

    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare

    System microphone picks up sound, returns intense feedback

    Microphone still unable to pick up sound from Dragon Speech


    Not a techie at all sorry but follow your general drift which is interesting. I've now got a mike input (USB Pro Sound) but how do you make the connection to the headphone output as there's two separate wires ?
