    Microphone not popping up or working

    Hi,



    This issue could occur due to incompatible or outdated drivers. We suggest you to run the
    Hardware and Devices troubleshooter by following the steps below:



    • Type Control Panel in the Search bar, and press
      Enter on the keyboard.

    • Click View All.
    • Right-click on Hardware and Devices from the list.

    If issue persists, we recommend you to check if the microphone was already enabled. To check it, follow these steps:



    • Right-click on the volume icon located at the lower right corner of the
      task bar.
    • Select Recording devices.
    • Right-click on an empty space inside the windows, and select Show disconnected devices
      and Show disabled devices.
    • Right click on Microphone, and select Properties.
    • On Device usage, make sure that enable
      is selected.
    • Hit the Apply button, then the OK button.
    • Make sure as well that it is set as default.

    Microphone Issue

    Hi
    Mateviar,

    Upon analyzing the details you have provided, it is possible that the issue is with the
    hardware
    or the
    device
    itself. However, we need to make sure that is the case. To isolate this matter, we have some questions for you:


    • Were there any changes made before the issue occurred?

    • Have you tried using the microphone to another PC?

    • What are the troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    We suggest that you run the
    Hardware and Device Troubleshooter. To run the
    Troubleshooter, follow these steps:


    • On the search bar, type
      Troubleshooting
      and hit
      Enter.

    • Choose
      Hardware and Sound.

    • Click on
      Hardware and Devices
      to run the
      Troubleshooter.

    Update us on how it goes.

    Regards.
