    Where should I install microphone?


    I went to set up Skype on my laptop and it says "No device found" for microphone.

    Neither is there anything under Control Panel > Sound - it says no audio devices are installed.

    I did a clean install recently and there is nothing missing in device manager (no yellow exclamations) so where do I install microphone?

    Where should it be? I can't install a driver if I don't know where... I know there is a microphone built in to the laptop as I used it before but now I'm lost how to install it. I am using a 2013 MacBook Pro FWIW.

    Microphone Not Working

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting your query to Microsoft forum. I will certainly help you with this.

    This issue could occur due to incompatible or corrupted device drivers. Let’s try to follow these methods below which can help us resolving this issue.

    What is the make and model of your computer and microphone?

    Method 1: Run audio troubleshooter.

    You might be able to solve some problems by running a troubleshooter that will automatically fix some common issues with audio.

    Follow the steps to run the troubleshooter:

      Troubleshooting..
    • Click on view all (on the left)
    • Select Playing Audio
      troubleshooter
    • Follow the prompted steps to troubleshoot this issue.
    If the issue persist, follow method 2.

    Method 2: Check for the microphone settings.

    Step 1:
    I would suggest you to set microphone as default device and check.

    • Right click on the volume icon in the system tray and then click "Recording devices"
    • Right click on the blank space in the popped up window and then select "Show Disabled Devices" and "Show Disconnected Devices".
    • Right click on Microphone and then click "Enable".
    • Highlight the microphone and then choose "Set as Default Device".
    • Click Apply and OK.

    Step 2: Make sure that the Microphone is not disabled.

    • 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”.
    • Make sure that the Microphone is not disabled.

    If the issue persists, follow method 3.

    Method 3: Update the sound drivers.

    Step 1: Check for the latest driver update through Windows Updates.

    • At the Start screen, type Windows Update.
    • Click or tap Settings on the right side of the screen, and then select
      Install optional updates from the left results.

    • Go to device manager.
    • Right-click your audio/sound devices.
    • Click Update Driver Software and then follow the steps in the wizard that appears.
    Restart the computer and check.

    Step 2: Check in
    compatibility mode.

    Download the drivers from the manufacture's website for Windows 10, if not available.

    Follow these steps to install the drivers in compatibility mode and check if that helps.

    a. Download the driver from the manufacturer’s website.

    b. Right-click on the driver setup file and click on
    ‘properties’.

    c. Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box

    d. Once this is done, restart the computer and check if the issue persists.
