I have a tip and a problem.
The tip is, if your mic is outputting chipmunk sounding audio, go to the Properties for the mic, Advanced Tab, and change the Default Format sampling rate to 16 bits, 16 khz. (48 = fast talking chipmunk, 32 = normal chipmunk, 16 = human, unless you are recording a chipmunk).
Here’s my problem – Sometimes after a reboot, the webcam does not respond at all. It appears as enabled, but the green bars don’t move. If I go to Audacity and try to record, it won’t start recording. The work around is to disable then enable it. Then it works again, but it might not after the next reboot.
My Microphone problem:
My mircophone worked for only a few days , after that my mircophone says that it is not plugged in but i plugged in.
I also have tired using 1 female, 2 male audio splitter but still … it didnt work : i used it on the second Headphone
My computer back had blue,red and green
I got two headphones :
First Headphone had 2 “3.5mm jack” green and red
Sencond headphone is a mix of green and red jack
Razer tiamat 7.1
The micrphone is not detecting sound, i followed every step on this articel http://win10faq.com/fix-microphone-settings/ and nothing, I tried using the fix davedicko posted above and it didn’t work.
Microphone was working fine until a couple days ago when windows 10 updated and i’m starting to lose it.
Thanks in advance
Irian – Did you try what I suggested above? Go to the recording devices window as shown in the article you posted, click on the microphone to highlight it. Click on Properties. At the bottom, change Device Usage to Disable, apply, then change it back to Enable, apply. If it works, the green bars should move when you tap on the mic.

i have literally done everything the web has to offer on this problem. Yes I have tried everything you have posted about. EVERYTHING. Not a fucking thing works (not your fault). I use the via chipset. Ive even tried downloading windows 7/8/8.1 via drivers, daniels modded, etc, nothing. My computer doesnt even detect the mic as plugged in, Headset/mic combo but it worked windows 7.
I did disable AMD audio driver, restarted, and mic was detecting as plugged in, but audio didnt work and mic didnt work at all. So renabled and back to square 1 with working audio and no detected mic, let alone working mic. Yes mic works on windows 10 on my lap top. So is not a faulty mic issue.
Like previously stated, i have done everything you have posted about and everything the web has posted about.
Is there solid fix i am not aware about? or you can figure out? Please dont respond have you tried this if its something that you have posted or the whole of internet has posted. Ive tried it.
Thanks if you can figure something out.
I’ve tried a lot of things at this point. My microphone is being recognized, but when I talk there is no sound being picked up from the microphone. I decided using another mic, one that worked before too, but then that one didn’t work either. Same problem with both, recognized but no sound. This started when I found an old headset and plugged it it for both the sound and the microphone jacks and both worked fine.
I’m not sure what the name of the headset or original microphone are but the microphone has “Genius” on it, and headset has “CD-R King Stereo Headphones”.
My version of Windows is 1607 (OS Build 14393.222)
Hey! Ive used different types of headsets like Apple and Ecko unlimited and still nothing works. I followed all the steps from the first one to the update of the drivers. It is only one difference from the beginning. The green bars appear only when i shout in the headphones, if i speak in the mic it doesn’t happen anything. Im on win 10, version 1607, OS build 14393.321. Thank you a lot!
HI guys. Sorry for my poor english. Hope it sounds good. I’m having a problem with the microphone and my win10 asus N552VW. Basically mic works weel until i plug in my headphones (monster by dre). In that case mic cuts off. I can’t use it on OBS, skype or any other program whatsoever. I’m 3 hours into this and i’m struggling a lot. I have installed and re-installed all the possible drivers but i can not fix this. Mic works well without anything plugged in. Even if i connect others headphone mic goes off. What can i do? Ty in advance
I have a Hyperx cloud Revolver headphone and attached mic. I am running on windows 10. Everything was working fine and then the microphone stopped working. I have tried: restarting the computer, uninstalling and reinstalling headphone and mic drivers, set microphone as default in sound manager under recordings. I can not get the green bars to move when using mic. Please help.
