  1. Windows 10 won't recognise my microphone


    I have a Corsair HS50 Pro Stereo headset with a microphone, and I can hear things through the headset, but the microphone is a completely different story. I've tried both this headset and some generic mobile in-ear headphones and both have the same issue, when i'm talking in a meeting, i'm super quiet. I've looked in audio settings at the microphone section and this headset isn't even an input option, nor is it an option for hearing audio. The only options I have for both are Realtek Audio. I've changed the Privacy settings to allow apps to use the microphone also but this hasn't fixed the issue of the headset not being recognised.

    :)

    microphone stopped being recognised by Windows 10 - worked perfectly for two years

    My microphone stopped working. Windows 10 just doesn't recognise it if I plug it in or disconnect it. It was working perfectly a few hours ago and nothing has changed. Any suggestions? If I right click on the speaker icon, go to Recording Devices its not
    listed. And if I disconnect it by USB and reconnect it, it doesn't show any activity in the window relating to it. Any suggestions?

    Windows 10 won't recognise my microphone

    How to make computer recognise external microphone

    Hi Everyone
    I am using a small netbook laptop Lenovo about 4 years old. The Windows 10 version is 1903.

    Now that we are all locked down I am using zoom a lot BUT so far I have had to use it on my smartphone because on this computer, although I can hear other people, they cannot hear me.I had this problem a few years ago with skype though that seemed to happen after skype upgraded and I blamed skype and the upgrade. Since then for videocalls I have mainly used whatsApp but on phone, of course.

    Now that we are all using zoom so much and because I was encountering this same microphone problem - the App apparently not recognising the internal microphone - it was suggested to me that I should buy an external microphone. This I have done BUT it has not helped and the problem seems to be that the computer just does not recognise it is there. If I go to Settings, then System then Sound it is still only giving me the option 'Microphone (Realtek High Definition Audio)' that it always has i.e. the built in microphone.

    So my question is: to use Zoom with the laptop, which will be much better for meetings with more than 4 people, how do I connect in the external microphone? (It connects via the audio jack).

    Thank you for any help uyou can give.
