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!
- Right click on the speaker icon located on the task bar and select Sound
- On the sound window select recording
- Select microphone array and click on properties
- On the properties window select levels and increase the volume.
- Click ok and test!
If you found another fix please share!
