I have yet another one of these mic problems with windows 10. It all started when I decided to connect an additional monitor. I changed my main monitor to a HDMI cable and used the “white plug” cable on the other monitor. Initially it stuffed up all my sound but I managed to get sound out to get off my monitor (presumably going through HDMI) back to my gaming headset. However the mic just refuses to work despite trying numerous internet fixes like Mina’s guide.
My headset is shown as the output device but not as an input device option – I also tried another headset – same issue. Also note that its usually plugged into the front ports on the tower PC (worked before dual monitors) I also tried plugged it into the pink and green ports at the back of the PC, then doesn’t recognise the device at all for input or output.
Unplugging the HDMI cable also doesn’t fix it – I guess this has stuffed my settings permanently.
Any ideas? Attached are some screen captures that may be of use.
