I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system
It's worked out well for many of us in the past.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)
Hello,I am desperate for help. My laptop will turn on. And I can type in my password.

But I cannot open anything or do anything at all. How can I fix this?Thank you!!!Read other answers

I am wishing to upgrade the hard drive in my new Envy AIO since it came with only a 5400rpm drive to a hybrid 7200rpm. I have read from previous posts that it is difficult due to the location of the drive sitting behind the curved monitor and to access it you have to remove it. I also have watched a video on someone doing this but they didn't mention how they were able to over come the strong adhesive that attaches the bevel to the monitor without breaking the screen. Is there a documented way to remove the bevel without force? This seems to be a poor engineering design for hard drive replacement or upgrades as well as memory grades where you have to go a step furhter and remove the motherboard since the RAm is located on the back side with no access. I am a computer engineer and very hardware savy and am very concerned about opening up the system to upgrade the hard drive. Any suggestions for removing the bevel safely would be greatly appreciated.Read other answers

Hello. My new (1) month old computer has no power. It's a tower but has a power supply on the cord like a laptop.90W 19.5V.My multimeter says it is only putting out 16 volts.Computer does nothing. Would a 3.5 volt drop in this power cause this?HP support only open 9-5 M-F and it's Sat night.Seems like such a small power supply for even the little tower this is.Can I get this under warranty?Thanks for your time.RobertRead other answers

I opened up my case but there doesnt seem to be a place to install a new GPU. I have integrated graphics, but they're not exactly great. Was wondering if I'm just missing something or if I truly just can't upgrade.
Hi: I agree with you. I took a look at the motherboard illustration, and I do not see any kind of expansion slots available for add on graphics, or any other PCIe card. The only upgrades that can be done appear to be to increase the memory if you don't already have 2 x 8 GB installed.Read other 1 answers

Hey every body, can any one tell me how to fix the mic on my PC. Everthing seems to be working fine even the sound is working but no mic.
By the way i have checked the mic itself is fine,
Be sure you are plugging the Mic into the Pink (Red) Mic input jack in the back of the computer. Go to Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices/Audio/Sound Recording. Take the drop down menu and make sure your Microphone is selected. Go to the Volume button and make sure that Mic does not have a check for Mute, and the volume is all the way up.Read other 1 answers

I have a Soundblaster Audigy 2 NX usb sound card and for the life of me,cannot get
the microphone to work.I have tried the latest drivers and whatever else but the bloody thing wont work.Operating system is Win XP SP2.
Anyone know of a fix???
Hi, I have had little to do with Creative products but if the A 2nx follows the pattern of most usb sound devices check this out:
Plug headphones into the device, plug in a mic, do you get mic thru' phones, this is called "direct monitoring". If you cannot get this and the book says you should ( and and decent sound interface WILL do it) you are on a hiding to nothing 'cos the box is t**s up. In 2years of pc sound I have yet to really grasp the tortuous route that certain systems use ( I don't think Bill G likes muscians). USB devices can be a pain. BUT; always,always keep checking, controlpanel;Sounds and Audio Devices, make a carefull not of what is turned on or off, slider posistions, go into "advanced" it won't smoke! These boxes can get messed up for no apparent reason I have found.
Best of luck

For some strange reason i cannot get a microphone to work on my computer anymore, i used to use it all the time on ventrilo and online games, but i went on vacation, and no one touched it while i was gone, but when i got back it no longer worked. i have tried 3 mics that all work on other computers, and nothing works. i thought it might be my soundcard but i bought a new motherboard(with 7.1 audio) and still nothing. my computer knows that the mic is there but it wont work. i think that this problem has something to do with ventrilo, or possibly some old audio settings hidden somewhere in my computer that are muting my microphone. i had a similar problem before but with some basic troubleshooting i got it fixed fairly easily. but this time it didnt work.

There are 2 types of microphone, Electret (condenser type) and Dynamic.
They are not interchangeable. Make sure you have the right one for the hardware installed.
As the title says, my computer does not recognize when i plug a microphone in. I am using a pair of headphones with a microphone attached to it.

Under control panel, Hardware and Sound, Manage Audio Devices, Recording tab, it says no audio devices are installed I have tried using 2 different ports and it still doesnt work. I recently installed to windows 7 from vista, could it be that some sort of audio driver didnt get installed or xfered over correctly? How would i figure this out?

Hi there. I just bought a NIP microphone with an XLR connection. I ordered an XLR > USB adapter on Amazon for use with my year-and-a-half-old Mac laptop (running El Capitan 10.11.5, which is the latest version).
The adapter has a red light that has been blinking ever since I plugged it in, and nothing seems to assuage this blinking. When I set my audio input to the proper microphone, nothing happens--no sound is heard. I turn up the gain in System Preferences and nothing happens. All of the connections are fine. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for any help you can provide. I've never used XLR microphones--I usually just stick with USB.
If it helps, the microphone is an Audio-Technica M4000S.
I can not get my Mic to work with win 7 - have done all the usual (e.g. update drivers, make sure settings are correct and enabled correctly, checked the mic with other Vista and XP computers, etc.)
I've tried the built in motherboard sound as well as other sound devices (e.g. M-audio Delta 1010, Creative X-fi (PCI and USB) and Diamond).
All indications are that every thing is working OK but no sound is recorded in any of my sound recording programs.
On rare occasions there is sound at a very very low volume but the next time I try there will be no sound at all.
All play back functions work correctly.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. I have a stock Gateway DX4200-09 (64-Bit) Computer with an AMD 9100e Quad Core CPU.
By enabled correctly, have you checked the Sound/Recording panel in the Control Panel? Make sure whatever sound card you are using and the mic for that card is selected. With multiple sound cards enabled on a system it can also get tricky as only one card can be default for any function.
Is that Delta 1010 working OK in Win 7? I see posts about problems with that in Win7 on the Sonar forum.
For the life of me I cannot get my Creative - SB Audigy sound card using driver ver. 1.4.77 to work.
I must have some kind of conflict going or something.
I can't even get Soundrecorder in the System accessories to record.
So i think it's a SOUNDCARD problem.
Went to Creative's site but there is no link for downloading driver software anywhere....I believe they don't support it anywhere...Also tried finding the driver elswhere on the web but could not either.

Hey guys. Today my Skullcandy Slyrs broke, and I've got my backup Skullcandy Ink'd headphones here to game with. I've tried every possible combination for default device on playback and capture, as well as communication device and while I've gotten sound to work (despite that not working for about an hour) I can not get this mic to work. I've tested it already and it works with other devices, I've done all the possible defaults (which was horrible as my computer says I have 5 mics yet I'm using only 1 and have disconnected devices off.) I've done the "install generic audio device" solution to replace the IDT audio codec, yet didn't have the right options listed because apparently HP just can't have anything be the same on every computer to make things easy, yet I did install both options for other drivers on the computer and neither made any of my 5 ghost microphones work.I have spent about four hours of my day working on this, and I am in desparate need of my microphone. I'm about ready to offer a paypal reward for whoever fixes HP's god-awful mess on my computer (how is there 5 microphones and 4 audio devices when only one audio device is connected, and why can't I plug my headphoens in and have them work like everyone else?)Thanks.Read other answers
I have an Intel 440 ZX board, and it has 3 jacks for audio.
I have used the second jack for my microphone before (about 2 months ago), but nowadayz when I plug in my mic and try to record my voice, the mic doesn't work. How can I get my mic to work again.
I have checked 'volume control' to make sure that the mic is not on mute.
Thanks in advance.
right click my computer, goto properties / device manager / scroll down to sound, video and game controllers, make sure you have no exclamation marks here and that the correct drivers are loaded.
You have checked volume control, have you been through all settings?? Volume up full ( mute unchecked ) Wave full ( mute unchecked ) Microphone up full ( mute unchecked )
Have you tried the microphone in any other Hi Fi equipment, check to make sure that the cable hasn't been cracked or pulled, make sure the jack plug is seated into socket fully.

Manage Audio Devices
Microphone there? - if not right click under shown devices and enable hidden / disabled devices.
Check settings there.
To put this in simple terms, my microphone doesn't work, but it isn't because it is broken, it's the computer. Whenever I open up Audacity, the microphone section of sound control, or Adobe Audition it crashes. And Discord's sound settings look this this.

I have suddenly found that my microphone is not working.
In the 'Sound & Audio Devices' Properties, only 'Stereo Mix' or 'SPDIF' can be ticked. It won't let me put a tick under 'Microphone'! And thereby lies the problem.
I have recently installed 'Freecorder' (free software that allows you to record anything that comes out of your speakers, recommended by Computeractive and which is very useful for recording streamed music and other audio content from the Internet) At first I wondered if that was causing this problem. I tried disabling all Freecorder's recording settings and suppressing it entirely in Internet Explorer, and short of actually uninstalling this very useful software, I still can't change the settings in sound & Audio Devices so that I can use my microphone in SKYPE and Windows Live messenger. I also have Audacity installed, but since I haven't used my microphone in a while, I don't know if it is Audacity or Freecorder that is the culprit.
Of course I have tested my hardware in 'Voice Recording' in Sound & Audio Devices but when I try to play back what I have recorded, there is just an awful high-pitched noise coming from the speakers, yet the test says my hardware is working properly. I know the microphone itself is working because it actually does work in Freecorder. I can record my voice and play it back! I should say, the microphone is plugged into t... Read more

Yeah I had some problems using a mic with vista running css too...Im ingame atm but it should be short and sweet.....
There are 3 things to check
1. check the mic is not identically named to any other mic and set as default
2. make sure the volume of the mic itself is turned all the way up (some programs mute it again after using it) and not turned up under the speakers in volume.
3. check the realtec website for the latest drivers or try another mic to make sure its working.
i have the same problem. sort of.
I had a pair of logitech and my mic stopped working so i got a new pair of gigatech headset with mic, and i thought yay it will work. It didnt work. So i been looking online for solutions.
However! I swapped my headset and tried using my friends headset, and a firewall notification came up with her headset, and i clicked unblock.
the mic worked with hers. So i thought swap back (Also mine worked for her)
we swapped back and mine still isn't working on my system, not too sure what is happening. I'm gonna try swapping the output and whatnot and test it (like above ToniMartins did) and see if it will work then.
Well, as long as you are looking for odd items that might have an affect,
go into the device manager and rightclick on properties for your cdrom drive.
Make sure that the Enable Digital Audio on this device is checked.

The second part to this problem is that I used to be able to record through ACCESSORIES>ENTERTAINMENT>RECORDER but somehow, while fooling around with my settings, I can't even use this anymore.
I have exhausted every possible FAQ's, forums and tech brains that I could.
Please??? I am at wits end here. Who will be my hero? lol
Boot into Safe Mode and remove all the Crystal entries from Device Manager then reboot. Have those new drivers ready.
That will force windows to redect it and hopefully make it work. As long as the mike is greyed out you won't get anywhere - so don't bother with the volume controls or anything until that is fixed.
Hello. I have a HP ENVY 17t-j100 Quad edition with Windows 10. I tried to plug in a microphone into the headphone microphone combo jack. It does not work. No recording device shows up in the Sound manager or device manager. A few times, it recognized a headphone being plugged in. The microphone plug only has 2 stripes. Does it need to have 3? Is that the problem? Does the headphone jack support a mic with only 2 stripes? I plugged in my earbuds that have a mic and 3 stripes on the plug. It worked fine. Is the other mic just defective, or do I need one with 3 stripes? Thank you.
Hi, Looks like the combo port does not support stand alone microphone. Many people try the following adapter (or similar): http://www.cablechick.com.au/cables/4-pole-trrs-to-35mm-stereo-mic-adapter-male-to-2x-female.html Regards.Read other 1 answers
Hope someone can help with this. I hooked up a microphone to my sound card, and I can't get it to work. I know that I have the correct jack, and that the mic itself is not defective. but I cannot get the mic to work through Windows Sound Recorder, or any other program for that matter. It worked when I first got my computer, and my speakers work fine, but for some reason I can't get it to work now. I uninstalled and re-installed Sound Recorder, nothing. The sound card is an Ensoniq audiopci sound board, S5016. I checked the manual, and made sure that the "mic" setting in the Ensoniq settings panel was properly checked, and that the "mute" was not. I have tried everything I know how to try and am stumped! Especially since it worked with no problem when I first got the computer.
