Computer not detecting audio input except for Cortanaa

Q: Computer not detecting audio input except for Cortanaa

I have a Windows 10 computer, and yesterday afternoon as I was calling a friend, I realized that my microphone wasn't working. After hours of trying to fix it and looking at all the online solutions to no avail, I decided to come here to ask. So basically, Discord, Skype and all the other applications (including the recording settings) don't detect any audio input. But this morning I opened Cortana and for some reason, the microphone managed to be detected. It isn't a hardware issue so what can the problem be and how can I fix it?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Hey guys.I've been using Skype for about a month and it's worked great. But a week or so ago, my sound settings got messed up. Now when I call people, they hear my voice very softly but they can hear the sounds on my computer (for example music I'm playing). My computer sounds can be heard even when my mic is unplugged.This might have something to do with installing Audacity and changing the recording settings.My sound card says High Definition Audio, which I assume means built in. Motherboard: M4A785TO-V EVOI know it's not a microphone problem because the sound levels in the Setup a Mic wizard look rightWhat I've tried so far:System RestoreUninstalling and reinstalling sound drivers.Turning mic volume higher on Skype (maximum)Some old threads I read give some solutions for Windows XP. Exactly what is being described here:http://forum.skype.com/index.php?showtopic=62556Thanks for any help,The Panda

A:Audio Input (Microphone) mixed with Computer Audio.


Somehow this fixed itself when I plugged in another mic, then put the old one back .

What's strange is that my computer sounds are no longer heard. I didn't touch any settings.

Drivers are all up to date, it's all plugged in fine and in the correct places. I have speakers plugged into the back and headphones plugged into the front, yet my computer still says no speakers or headphones are plugged in. I have even gone to the effort of reinstalling windows completely but to no avail. I am using on-board audio by the way and it is enabled in the BIOS, please help I've literally tried everything I can think of, looked online on all the forums but still nothing has helped and I am officially lost.

A:My computer isn't detecting any audio device help please

According to the ASRock site, this has RealTek HD Audio. Do you have the correct RealTek driver or do you have the generic Windows installed "High Definition Audio Codec"? If you only have the Windows installed High Definition Audio Codec, the first step is to get the correct RealTek Driver. ASRock only has Vista drivers but they are applicable to Windows 7. However, the most current RealTek driver can be downloaded direct from RealTek.

Your system has the RealTek ALC888 hardware. The RealTek High Definition Codecs are the correct drivers.

Also, please post a screen shot of the Device Manager, Sounds section.

Hi, this is my first time posting in this forum!

It all started when my friend told me that he could hear all of my computer audio through Skype, even though my mic (on my headset) is hard-muted (muted by switch on the headset itself).

All of my computer audio (system sounds, iTunes, YouTube) is being picked up by the mic under "Recording Devices". I've tried just about everything I can think of. Stereo Mix is disabled and the ONLY way I've found for the audio not to be picked up by mic is if I mute the mic in sound settings. I have set my microphone to default device and Playback is muted.

I've done lots of testing with different audio settings and using Windows "Sound Recorder" to record while iTunes is playing music whilst my mic is hard-muted, yet EVERY TIME it picks up the music!

Thanks for reading! And if you have any suggestions I thank you in advance!

*** I forgot to mention this problem only persists while I use my headset, if I unplug my headset and use speakers the mic doesn't pick up audio ***

P.S. I keep using the word hard-mute because I cannot mute the mic via the sound settings otherwise it would render it pointless...


The screenshot I took is an example of how the mic picks up iTunes audio even though the mic is hard-muted.

My Dad used to use the laptop that me and my Mom share, and he did something to the settings on the computer (I don't know what, or else I would have fixed it myself.) which allow you to use a USB mic, and he disabled the microphone jack on the computer.
I really want to find out how to change it, because I'm planning on doing TF2 livestreams, and I need the mic to do so, and if I can't find a way to fix this, then I'm going to either have to use one of the crappy USB mics we have, or I'm going to have to convince my Dad to let me use his 300$ mic, which won't be easy. :/

Hi guys.

Last week I bought a new computer headset. It is an Altec Lansing headset (just one of those cheap ones that you get from WalMart). And everything was working great. But my computer also has an on-board microphone, so when plugged in (I have front headphone (x2) and microphone (x1) jacks), the headset overrode the on-board mouse. I was using sound recorder and the program audacity to make sure the headset worked and all. And it worked perfectly fine.

But today, I went to open Audacity, and my entire computer froze. I let it sit for a while until it became apparent that it wasn't going to unfreeze, so I had to hard-shut it down. But now I've discovered that ANYTHING that has to do with audio input freezes the computer.

- I can't open Audacity, sound recorder, or any other recording device.
- I can open the audio devices manager via right clicking on my volume icon, but if I select "recording devices" as what I want to open it freezes. If I select Volume or Sound, it opens fine, but as soon as I click the Recording tab, it comes up, I can see the mic is enabled, and there's another realtek thing that's disabled, but the computer automatically freezes.
- I can open the Realtek HD Audio Manager, but if I click the "Microphone" tab, the computer freezes.

I checked for updates on the audio-related drivers that I could find, but none of them had available updates at all. So I have absolutely no clue what to do.

I've been searching for the answer to this problem almost all day today, and have still to find out exactly how its done. I've been researching 'attenuate line level to mic level' due to that being my only clue, but I'm new to this audio thing. I know that the audio output is different from the input required, or something of the sort. Is there something I can buy that would adjust the sound somehow to allow clear audio through the controller?
Here's what I've been trying, just to get bad feedback, and crappy sound when i play an audio clip.
This is a male-male extension connected to a headphone jack on one side, and then connected to a 1/8" to 3/32" Adapter.

Windows will happily output sound to my headset but there is no input from the mic. I have a xonar dg as my soundcard.

The headset mic has been tested on a laptop and works
The microphone mute button the the headset cable is set correctly
The jack is correctly in
On plugging in (and fiddling with the jack) the mic I can see noise in CP/Sound window
It has been tested on the front panel, the soundcard jack & motherboard jacks
Drivers have been wiped and reinstalled
System restores had no effect
A reinstallation of windows keeping programs & settings had no effect
The mic is not muted or set too low in Control Panel / Sound
The mic in my webcam works correctly (USB)
Connections inside the case are not loose
Toggling the front mic option in Cp/Sound/Recording/(the mic)/properties/custom has no effect
I also managed to get the mic to work (badly) for a few seconds after windows reinstalled. After I plugged in the headphone jack, the mic went dead and hasn't recovered since.

The mic has worked on this PC before, it seems some setting / software / driver is mucking up.

A:Windows not detecting input from headset

I noticed the sound card can only handle up to 48KHz/24-bit recording. However the CP sound options would let me set it above this. Lowering it to the acceptable level made no difference.

Hi, i own a BenQ T903 19" LCD monitor and lately its been acting up. Basically a blue screen continuosly appears and disappears on the monitor saying:

"input select" then gives me two options D-sub and DVI

but i dont have to press anything and it will just keep flickering on my monitor, its absolutely annoying. The only fix i can think of was to check my connection, and its fine. Any ideas?

A:Monitor has issues with detecting input?

That sounds like it's searching for a signal. You need to hook the monitor to another computer first, to rule out problems with the video in your desktop.

If you have an HDMI OUTPUT on your PC, on many you have to manually set the HDMI on the Video card as the default playback device, rather than the usual "speakers". Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Sound Panel and on the Playback you will probably have an icon for the HDMI, select that as the default playback device and you should get the PC audio in the HDMI signal.

I have a self-assembled desktop PC - full specs in the signature below, but in short, it has an AMD Phenom II X6 1090T processor on a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P mainboard, which uses a Realtek Azalia ALC887 on-board sound system. I have no loudspeakers and listen to the computer sounds exclusively through a Microsoft LX-1000 headset. I also have a Logitech C270 HD webcam that has its own microphone. My PC has 16 GB RAM, a SSD and a large HDD. It runs Windows 8.1 Update 1 with all Windows updates (Patch Tuesday was this week, but my problems had started before that and I'm sure they're unrelated).

Everything is working fine, except the audio, which started behaving strangely a few days ago for no apparent reason. The problems started suddenly and I can't think of anything that could have caused them. There were no hardware changes or any intervention in the hardware, nor did I install any new software that could have messed up things.

When playing music, it sounds muffled, with the volume very low and the voice and several instruments muted, while other instruments in the background arrangement sound relatively louder. No graphic equalizer is on, and this happens with any player software (Windows Media Player, VLC, Media Player Classic, etc.), and any source (MP3 music, audio CDs, DVDs, videos, etc.). There appears to be no hardware problem with either my headset or the onboard audio: when I run both Windows' native and Realtek's driver sound output tests, the test tune comes out... Read more

Currently my computer recognizes that there are headphones connected to it(which I have tested on my phone) , the speaker symbol and playback devices shows that the volume is on and active; I have the Realtek driver and the HD Audio Codec; I have tried changing my default devices in "Playback Devices"; both Windows Audio and Multimedia Class Scheduler are on, and yet I have no sound.

On a side note, every time I reinstall the driver it won't detect my speakers until I set it to AC.97 and, unlike the indicator found in "Playback Devices" the volume mixer is inactive even when sounds should be playing.

I've also tried a system restore to before I installed the heat sink, which is before this occurred, and looking around for audio options in my BIOS (M5A78l-M LX Plus, v.1033) to no avail. The only thing I can think of is to format or somehow v.1034 of my BIOS would do anything even though it was released five months ago and I just got this problem... Please help and thank you in advance.

Also, I've already tried virus scanning and chkdisk, if that is at all relevant.

A:No audio... after changing heat sink? (on-board audio, input is ok)

If you have the RealTek audio and "HD Audio Codec" that usually indicates that along with the RealTek you also have the generic Windows installed HD Audio Codec audio sound driver. If that is the case there can be conflicts and the HD Audio Codec needs to be uninstalled so your RealTek can properly operate.

If this is what's happening, go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the HD Audio Codec entry to highlight it and then LEFT click "uninstall". Restart the PC and check to see if the RealTek (and possibly an entry for HDMI audio if you have that) is the only entries in the Device Manager for Sound. The "Speakers" (RealTek) should be set as the default audio playback device in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel Playback section.

Hi there @145755, I hope you find your Support Forum experience a positive one!  It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts, and other support personnel.  I understand that you have changed a setting on your computer and now the display is not working.  I am happy to give you a hand with this. Please post the full product number for your computer. See the following, if you need help with that information.  HP Desktop PCs - How Do I Find My Model Number, Serial Number or Product Number? I would suggest you try to start your computer in Safe mode to load basic screen settings. See this document: HP PCs - Windows Safe Mode (Windows 10, 8). As you are unable to see the display properly at this time you will need to follow the process described for "Entering Safe Mode without access to Startup Settings".  If you are able to get in, then make the needed adjustments to your display settings, then restart your system normally to see if the display will come up properly. If not try a different screen resolution. Please let me know whether that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

About 6 month's ago I reinstalled my OS and all my software, shortly thereafter I noticed I had an issue where any sound that was coming through my headphones was being retransmitted through the mic, with further testing I found that this was not actually the case but rather any sound that would be output is being retransmitted as audio in, even if I had no speakers, headphones or mics connected. I have looked at and experimented with everything I could in every sound settings I could find, but nothing has fixed the issue.

Before anyone asks, I have tried updated drivers, the only way for me to stop the issue from occurring is to mute the mic in the recording control, but that stops me from using the mic altogether.

Please Help I need to be able to use my mic without recording anything that I am hearing as well...

I am currently trying to use both microphone and stereo mix at the same time without a sound card.

I would like to be able to both of the listed above in Windows XP SP3 but not entirely sure on what to do as I have literally hit a brick wall I have tried looking all over the net but no one seems to be able to answer this question.

I would greatly appreciate any/all help regarding this matter, a few people have stated you can use Stereo Mix and then somehow un-mute your microphone?

(The purpose of the above is because I am currently streaming and wish to use both sound and microphone at the same time)
(I am trying to accomplish this without having to spend out cash on a sound card and/or software)

I appreciate any help you guys/girls can provide,

A:Need help with Audio Input

If you have sound at all, you have a "sound card". It may be built into the board, but is still referred to as the "sound card" for all practical purposes.

So, that means that I'm not quite sure what the problem is that you're having. I'm assuming that it has something to do with using 5.1 sound as opposed to stereo, for example. In most cases, the enhanced output formats use the microphione jack as output for one of the speakers, disabling its ability to be used as a microphone (in which case settings related to the mic have no effect). If I'm close, you'll either have to use simple stereo (which should be fine from something streaming, anyway) or add another sound card for a mic setup.

Others who have done things like this more than I probably have other (and possibly better) answers.

My friend has a setup with his cable TV where the signal is split into audio and video, and the audio is sent to some kind of stereo system. He uses it for those music channels on cable (I don't know much about this, but I can find out more if necessary). What I'm trying to help him figure out is how to get this data into a PC instead of the stereo. I don't have any knowledge of the sort of connections involved for this, could it be as simple as connecting the audio cable to a sound card, or are they usually different kinds of data/cables? Any response is appreciated (even if it's just asking for specifics). Thanks!

I have an Asus M4A89TD pro / usb3 that has Realtek audio onboard. I have just finished my build and have never been able to get any sound from any of my IO ports. None of the ports recognize anything that I plug in (i only have 2 sets of 2.1 speakers, one uses a single light green jack and the other uses the light green jack and a black jack.) I DO get sound from some old usb headphones. The integrated Realtek audio does not detect any analog connection (tried with mic/speakers/headphones) in any of the jacks.

I removed the current drivers through uninstalling from device manager, rebooted, then installed the latest drivers from Asus, then Realtek directly. Additionally, I disconnected the front audio jacks from the motherboard in case that was causing a problem. Windows detects the audio device and there is no problems in device manager.

I've gone through every available option in the Realtek sound control options, but I'm at a loss. I have a USB headset that works without a problem, but I can't get these analog speakers to work. Any advice? The "set default device" is grayed out as an option for the speakers as well as saying they are "not plugged in".

A:realtek audio not detecting speakers or headphones.

Unplug all your inputs.
Plug in one device at a time.
If the Realtek software is functioning properly you should see a pop up after plugging in the green main speaker plug.

After confirming by pressing OK, you should get the following.

You should then plug in the black input and go through the confirmation process, again.

I have a Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3R that has had no problem for quite a long time using Windows 7 64 bit. Recently after a reboot, the integrated Realtek audio no longer detects any analog connection (tried with mic/speakers/headphones) in any of the jacks.

I removed the current drivers using add / remove, rebooted, then installed the latest drivers from Gigabyte, then I tried Realtek directly, and finally the default Windows audio drivers. I also tried removing the drivers with driver sweeper, directly from device manager, etc. and installing a fresh set of drivers. Additionally, I disconnected the front audio jacks from the motherboard in case that was causing a problem. Windows detects the sound card and there appears to be no problems in device manager.

I've gone through every available option in the Realtek sound control options, but I'm at a loss. I have a USB headset that works without a problem, but I can't get these darn analog speakers to work. Any advice? Before anyone says it, 'set default device' is grayed out as an option for the speakers.

A:Realtek HD Audio input

Hi Bill,
According to MSI's web page, that motherboard has an ALC883 audio chip.

These chips have what's known as "smart port sensing" for what is plugged into what port/jack. It does this by sensing various tidbits of what's plugged in (such as draw, amps, etc.etc.).

Usually, you can find a SoundMAX or Audio Console with the reference audio drivers, or the ones on MSI's website. With this tool, you will likely have to override the port/jack sensor's findings (likely no microphone or no audio input device) which should then allow windows to pick-up the mic.

Check your systray, start menu or control panel to see if you can find the RealTek (or MSI) audio panel/settings window. It's usually a big, colorful application with an Equalizer, some 3d sound demos and a tab with a row of jacks and little hammer icons. You'll have to click on the hammer for wherever you have your microphone connected and hardset-it to microphone (not line-in) to get it to work.. if it'll let you.

When I plug in my headset the speakers work fine but the microphone doesn't seem to record anything. I have tried using another microphone with no luck. When I plug the microphone in it does recognize it, nothing is greyed out, and I have all the various volume and boost settings turned up. When I adjusted the playback volume I can hear myself in the speakers but it doesn't record it in any program. I have tried plugging the microphone into both the front and back port with no results..

Hi. I'm running a program to generate and analyse audio. Using a 3 core cable plugged into the right-hand jack I can monitor the output audio (on the yellow cable  - may also be on the white) from the program on an oscilloscope. However, when I supply audio via the red connector , there is no indication of it on the computer. The 'scope shows plenty of audio level going into the computer, but when I run through the recording set-up on Control desk, I can get no indication of input level alongside any symbol. Any thoughts? Is the red cable the normal audio input cable on these set-ups? Regards.

I have a Latitude E6410 on which I am running Windows 10 Professional. When I feed external audio into the microphone jack it plays out the external speaker jack. I have tried unchecking the"listen to" box in Windows but this does not correct the situation like it does on other computers I own running Windows 10. How can I stop the mic audio from comming out the speaker audio??

I recently purchased a Sennheiser PC350 headset, and have come into some trouble with setting up the microphone. Whenever I perform the hardware test with the audio manager in XP, I get a tremendous loop of feedback. It just gets louder and louder until I mute my master volume. I have no speakers powered on, and the feedback is coming through the headphones.

The odd thing is that the feedback comes through on Valve's Steam, but not Skype. I can also record my voice without any problems. I've been tweaking settings trying to get this to work, and have the latest drivers, but have not been able to figure out what the problem is.

I'm stuck. Either my brand new headphones are broken, my audio input is blown, or I don't know what the hell I'm doing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using Black XP 2 on a Biostar P4M900M4 with 2.8GHz. My favorite sound recorder has always been Audiograbber. But on this system I can't even open the mixer to reach stereo mix for online recording, which makes no sense at all. The Realtek mixer window shows all input channels already selected, but that makes no difference. The volume controls won't work. How do I get Realtek to open these input channels? Or is there some reason why audio recording has been blocked on your software??

Has anyone experience of using Magix Audio Cleaning Lab or Audacity with windows 7.

I used a free version of Magix on windows 7for a long time and it was fine but following a reinstall of windows 7 it will not record audio input from the via stereo mix. It will still record CD's though.

I have had a long email exchange with the Magix support but they have been unable to trace a problem.

I have just downloaded Audacity and find that also will not record sound output by my on board sound system.

Any ideas of what to try or check would be most welcome.

Well, things went on until noon yesterday, but suddenly My PC takes no audio input or gives any output.
I have tried reinstalling driver, checking mute button, checking Cables etc, none of the audio devices work on my PC which work in other devices.
On opening realtek audio manager and playing auto test, Nothing plays, and going to control Panel -> Sound, and playing the test tone, I get this error:
Just as an additional info, I reinstalled AVG Internet Security 14 yesterday, and probably the audio was working till then. Once AVG was installed and the system got restarted, a system Update was triggered automatically, if that has got anything to do with my problem.

P.S. I could not use system restore as well, I get the following error:

Also, I come to know by googling that The Audio and System restore problems come in combos frequently.

A:No audio input and output

Do you have any audio listed in the device manager, other than RealTek, and possibly an HDMI audio (if your system has that capability)? If there are other audio entries, such as "HD Audio Codec" uninstall those as they can conflict with the actual sound device (RealTek).

An uninstall/reinstall if the sound device will fix any Windows corruptions, and MAY fix your audio problem. In the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the RealTek to highlight it and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the driver. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound.

AVG is on the list of Antivirus programs that potentially can interfere with Audio. I have a recording studio, using Sonar X3 recording software, and AVG is listed as one to avoid. For that reason (and that it works), I only use the built in (built in to Windows 8) Windows Defender (is called Microsoft Security Essentials in XP, Vista and Win 7).

A:mobo audio input help

it looks that way - i dunno what you're supposed to do if you want to use the mike whilst gaming in 5.1 - is there not a mike input on the front?

it seems to be a trend amongst hardware designers to double up the 'ports' like that - for instance, on my netbook, the same jack socket is used for headphones and mike. you have to buy a special gizmo if you want to use both at the same time. is it really an economy thing - how much money do they really save by not giving us extra sockets?

don't worry, you shouldn't break or fry anything if you stick it into the wrong hole...

*edit* re-reading your post, you haven't got three inputs? speaker sockets are 'outputs'. maybe i'm being pedantic, but there is an important distinction.

Ive just upgraded my case and it got an audio input on the front (green and pink)

But for some reason I'm not picking up sound through it. I can get it from the motherboard but not the front of the case. Ive followed the user instructions as to plugging the port into the mobo but apart from that its not working.

If i go to control panel its sending sound out but I'm not picking it up

Any ideas?

I have an Asus P6T motherboard with Realtek ALC1200 on board audio and Windows 7 64 bit OS, DirectX 10, Audio Driver version
The sound works normally for all audio functions.

I installed Nero and went to use the Wave Editor application to record a song from the web and got the message "Unable to open recording device". Going to Options > Device Settings > for an Input Device there only shows "MMEwave mapper)". There is no other input device listed.

In Device Manager the "Realtek High Definition Audio" device shows as the only device. Going to "Manage Audio Devices" and the "Recording Tab" there shows only "Microphone" and "Line In". There is no "Realtek Digital Input" device listed (as I've seen in web screenshots from others).

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get an input device listed to use with Nero recording?

You will need the "System Mixer" to record streaming audio from the internet. Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Sound. Click on the Recording Tab and then RIGHT click in a blank area and check the option to show disabled devices. If the System Mixer is there, select it as default.
