Every time my computer updated Windows for some reason the microphone stopped working. I couldn’t use Skype or even the voice recorder. After running thousands of diagnostics and even contacting Microsoft support  I wasn’t able to find the solution. After driving myself crazy and trying a lot of things like updating the drivers, uninstalling and installing the microphone again.. I decided to look into the microphone settings. So, I finally found the solution!


  1. Right click on the speaker icon located on the task bar and select Sound
  2. On the sound window select recording
  3. Select microphone array and click on properties
  4. On the properties window select levels and increase the volume.
  5. Click ok and test!
  6. Done!
