    USB Microphone & sound

    What happened? I added my USB professional microphone and my sound went out. I can no longer hear any sound from my computer.

  2. Microphone detected but no output of sound


    I'm out of ideas. I have an XLR condenser microphone that connects to a preamp that then connects to my PC via USB.

    Windows sees the device, I've reinstall drivers, the latest Windows update, and all of the normal things I can think of. The premap shows that my microphone is picking up sound, but I get no output to any application or Windows itself.

    Any thoughts here or suggestions?

  3. Skype "can't access sound card" for microphone


    As you are facing issues with accessing the microphone on Skype. Do not worry we will help you with this issue.

    We appreciate your time spent in resolving the issue.

    • Do let us know if you have made any changes to the operating system prior to this issue?
    • Which version of Skype have you installed on your computer?

    As a workaround, I suggest you to check if there are any updates for the Skype app in Windows Store. If so, try to install the updates and check if it helps.

    Also, I recommend you to check with the settings in Skype app.

    Step 1: Check configuration in Skype

    Normally, you will receive the message about recording device error, if the microphone or the webcam is not configured properly in Skype.

    To check configuration:

    • Open Skype and navigate to tools
    • Click options and check for sound device.

    Step 2: Verify in the recording tab if the Microphone is enabled and working.

    To check:

    • Click Start, click Control Panel
    • Click Soundand click Audio.

    Hope it helps. Update us the status with the error message on Skype for further assistance.

    Thank you.

    This issue could have happened due to settings of your Microphone. To resolve your issue, we suggest that you check your Microphone is not disabled and set as default. You can follow these steps to check your microphone settings:

    • Right click on the volume icon and select “Recording devices”.
    • Now, right click on an empty space and select, “Show disconnected devices” and “Show disabled devices”.
    • Select “Microphone” and click on “Properties” and make sure that the microphone is enabled.
    • You may also check if the microphone that you are using is set as default.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help.
