Hi, I have a problem with my microphone mute button on my T410.  It does not mute the microphone when pressed.  I verified this by opening the Sound settings in Control Panel and the fact that the amber light doesn't come on to indicate it is muted.  When I mute the microphone through the Control Panel Sound option, the light does not come on either. This started happening after a reinstall of Windows.  I made sure to install all the software and driver updates using the Lenovo Driver and Software update tool. I also individually downloaded and installed the Conexant drivers, too. Any ideas? Thanks, Chris

Hello,
i have the MICROSOFT WIRELESS OPTICAL DESKTOP 3000 DSP and the problem is that
the mute button doesn't work. I checked with a program that tests buttons if the button have problem but it works perfectly. I just doesn't work in win 7. This problem came after a format. I have also tried through human interface device access to automatic startup but still nothing.

I have installed the latest audio drivers still nothing.
I can't find the drivers for the keyboard.

Any ideas appreciated.

I have Windows 8.1 Pro and a Logitech K800 Keyboard (wireless/illuminated) and I'm continuing to be frustrated by the fact that the Mute button does not work. Oddly enough, I had the same problem with a previous Windows 8.0 Pro install -- it went away when I upgraded to Windows 8.1. But the problem started again shortly afterward (maybe a week or two). I have the latest drivers and apps installed from Logitech.

After a reboot, the first time I hit the Mute key momentarily mutes the sound but then the sound returns (maybe after 1 second). After that, hitting the Mute key has no effect at all.

I have searched Google for a solution but nothing matches my problem. Oddly there are reports of all volume-related keys not working, but the Volume up and Volume down keys still work for me.

I'm wondering if anyone else is having these problems, and/or if anyone has suggestions.

A:Keyboard Mute Button Doesn't Work

There should be software for that keyboard. Some Keyboards that have extra keys work without added software, if they are a PS/2 KB. I don't have any USB KB's that have extra keys like that, the one I got is an old HP keyboard.

Check the Logitech site, see if there are drivers for that particular KB.

Here is an odd problem I can't figure out.

I bought new Audioengine A5+ speakers and set them up, everything was normal.

Then decided to purchase an Audioengine D1 DAC to bypass the motherboard sound chip. It plugs in via USB, speakers plug into it.

The sound is great, no issues. However, I have now lost the ability to Mute the sound! Pressing mute in the Windows volume control works, and the red circle appears on the taskbar. However, the sound doesn't change at all!

Volume slider works as normal, it's just the ability to Mute that doesn't function.

The D1 does not require any type of driver and installed normally by Windows. Thoughts??? This is driving me crazy.

Operating system is Windows 7 64-bit.

A:Installed DAC - now mute button doesn't work

Hi jordanfsl and Wecome to Seven Forums
Quote "Audioengine D1 DAC to bypass the motherboard sound chip. It plugs in via USB, speakers plug into it."
You are not using the computer audio subsystem therefore you will not be able to control it like you would when using onboard audio. You will have to control the audio on the external device. Check for software updates and firmware updates to the USB devce. Although you say the D1 does not need any software installed I would check there is not an update by visiting the vendors website. That may solve your issue.

Hello,
i have the MICROSOFT WIRELESS OPTICAL DESKTOP 3000 and the problem is that
the mute button doesn't work.
This problem came after a format.
I have also tried through human interface device access to automatic startup but still nothing.

I have installed the latest audio drivers still nothing.
I installed optical desktop drivers 3000 and still nothing.

IMPORTANT: When i open "speaker properties" and go to "levels" tab, i push the mute button on my keyboard and the mute button is highlighted on the screen but mute doesn't happen (this i think indicated that mute button works.)After a while of doing this, explorer.exe crashes-reboots and mute button works properly
But when i restart, mute button stops again to work. So i have to crash explorer.exe (like described above) to make it work again.


Any ideas appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi, recently I bought a new keyboard with multimedia keys
Model : Microsoft Wireless keyboard 1000
All the keys are working fine, I also installed the latest drivers and Intellitype Pro to the correct OS i'm using.
However, when I press the mute/unmute button, the volume bar shows up, but does not actually mute. It seems like it flashed the mute symbol for half a second but it still just stay unmute. I tried using the default Microsoft sound driver and the latest Realtek sound driver but still no luck.
I also tried turning HID services on and off but still the same
BUT, I remember the mute button WORKING until a few days ago.

I don't know if it is due to the Windows Update, or something to do with my motherboard driver or something else. The roll back driver option is greyed out in Device Manager so I don't assume that is the problem..

I'm currently using:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 1000
YAMAHA speakers YST-M15 (really old model)
Realtek High Definition Audio Driver 6.0.1.5859
ASUS M3A78-EM Motherboard

I'm really confused because if all the multimedia keys are working then it should not be a driver problem. If the volume up/down is working then it should not be speaker problem. It is ONLY the mute button that is not working.
Thanks in advance for any replies.

My friend's microphone suddenly stopped working today; he has the same sound card as me (X-Fi Xtremegamer), but a different headphone w/mic than me. What I was interested in was that I told him to go to the sound and recording tab and told him to say anything. He said that the green bar that moves up based on how loud they talk was ALWAYS 100% green even when he said nothing. I'm just curious if he's able to fix his mic based on this information or will he have to get a new mic? He has windows home premium 64-bit by the way.
 

A:Microphone doesn't work.

Hmm, this sounds familliar.
Have him open Task manager, then view processes for all users. This will allow you to view Vista(windows) processes that are running. Look for audiodg.exe and post back here at to it's status. I would bet you a beaver that it is running out of control.(If not, you can keep the beaver)

In my case, this meant an incompatable sound device (AC97). Since your device for sound is better than the upgrade I bought to fix it, I would have to think this would be a driver issue, as compatability should not be an issue.

Try uninstalling the device from Device Manager(without deleting the drivers) and rebooting. Allow Vista to reinstall the drivers and see if the problem is gone.

From here there are two possible outcomes. Either it won't do a thing, or it will go away. If the later, it will probably return. So, here I some additional thoughts.

In my quest to force the 'sometimes working' audio issues to work in my favor without a upgrade, I read that many people found that desktop sound enhancement programs often cause problems with audiodg.exe. It seems that things like reverb can cause an unending loop that will spike cpu and ram usage. Under this environment, you get terrible sound lag, or no sound at all. Look for anything related to this that could be disabled.

If none of these work, secure the latest drivers and try removing the device and checking the box to delete the drivers. Install the set you obtained and check the prograss.... Read more

A:Microphone doesn't work

what mic are you using - is it built in to the laptop..??

if it's an onboard mic, there should be a sound manager somewhere
that will allow you to enable it, and set recording levels, etc..

do you have a manual, that may give you some idea of where to look for the audio settings panel..??

it might also be worth checking the Dell site for sound drivers
re-installing them may reset the controls to "default", thus enabling the mic..

I also tried to plug in my mic on the front side of the Pc. I noticed that I had installed Rapture3D two days ago, but didn't know that I did. Therefore I deinstalled it.

I searched online and a lot of people told me to go to the settings and set it as my default device but IT DOESN'T WORK!! So I decided to re-install the driver but it didn't work! PLEASE HELP ME!!! I LOVE THIS LAPTOP AND I DON'T WANT TO GIVE IT UP!!:cry::cry::cry::cry:

A:My NEW Laptop's Microphone Doesn't Work!!

If you have Stereo Mix (System Mixer), that should be set as default Recording Device, if you have it. Then if either the mic or Line In is used it will be detected and heard or recorded.

If reinstalling the driver, from HP, did not work, best to contact HP as only HP can correct it under warranty.

Hey guys,

I just got my new custom computer not too long ago. My headset with mic worked on my old slow computer when I just plugged them in. However, with my new computer, the mic doesnt work. I've spent a couple hours trying to find an answer myself but no luck. I've tried the obvious, making sure they aren't on mute, etc, etc. They don't work for sound recorder or counter-strike or anything else. I know the headset as a whole works. Any suggestions would be great cause this is making me sick! puke:

Thanks,
Dave

I have an HP G71-340US Notebook. The built in Microphone isn't working. I've tried uninstalling then re-installing the sound card driver but it's just like it doesn't exist. It will offer to do the set up but when I hit the record button, it offers the signal bar but shows nothing hapenning on it. Almost like the microphone is unplugged and the laptop doesn't realize it.Thanks for any advice.

Hi.
 
My Windows 8 laptop has a mic built in, which always worked fine. I also have a mic I can plug in which always automatically worked when plugged in.
 
However, a few days ago I plugged it in and nothing happened. It still works on my desktop. I haven't changed any settings.
 
I bought a headset. This works fine on my desktop, but not on my laptop. I have sound through the headphones, but the mic isn't working.
 
When I look at the audio devices it doesn't show, although I'm not sure it used to show the other mic either. I've clicked to unhide other devices, still doesn't show. I tried going to add a device but it doesn't find anything.
 
I tried troubleshooting, but it finds no issues.
 
For some reason the built in mic did stop working but that is now working again. I didn't change anything. However, the headset mic still isn't doing anything.
 
What can I do to get the headset mic working?
 
Thanks.

When in Audio Properties - Recording tab - Did you unhide also any internal/external mic?

The microphone is detected, already enabled, but no sound detected.
The microphone doesn't have a problem, because it works on other computer which are using XP.

I've done troubleshooting, but it couldn't find what the problem is.
Please help..

A:Microphone doesn't work properly

Please post the exact HP model number.

Do you have the correct sound driver? If you only have the generic, basic function Windows installed High Definition Audio Codec, that is not the correct driver.

The microphone of my headset does not work when I plug it in my laptop. In the playback devices I can see the mic and it says active or plugged in, but when I try to speak it does not hear anything, I've tried updating the drivers, I've adjusted the microphone level to max but still nothing. When I tried to do voice record it said "Plug in microphone" but the microphone was plugged in and I can still see it in the recording devices listed as active. I really need help. Additional info I've downloaded a voice changer application earlier before this happened, is there a way to reset the recording devices?. And yes I've tried uninstalling and installing the device software.

Ive inserted a DxDiag file
