Hey! i just bought a new headset for my brand new desktop, and the mic isn’t working..
There seems to be absolutely No signal coming from the mic as I can’t get the green bars to rise in the recording device section of Sound options.
I have Tried deleting and reinstalling different drivers (Realtek) – both from manufacturer’s homepage and from Microsoft’s catalogue, rebooting my desktop between every deletion and installation. didn’t work…
I already checked the privacy settings regarding mic and webcam and it’s set properly.
Every time i installed new drivers, i checked and adjusted levels in “microphone properties”, and disabled sound effects under “Enhancements” and set communication settings to “do nothing”.
I believed it was a hardware problem and therefore went to get a new headset in the store – same problem.
I checked the new headset on another Windows 10 desktop – same problem.
It did work when i checked it on a laptop running Windows 7, so im fairly sure it ain’t a hardware issue.
I did all of the above with the jacksticks in the two ports in the front of my pc, and went on to make Windows go back to before i tampered with drivers, to start from scratch – repeating the steps with the jacksticks in the back of my pc. Still No Sound from the mic..
Im running Windows 10 64bit
on a ASUS Prime z370-a motherboard.
My newly purchased headset is a Hyperx Cloud Alpha with a splitted Jackstick 3.5mm.
Please work ur magic and pull out a trick from ur sleeve that I have forgotten or don’t know!
