Windows 10: Headset microphone not recording when headset is default audio device
Headset microphone not recording when headset is default audio device
HelloSo three days ago I wiped all of my drives and installed Windows 10. I have a Corsair Vengenace 2100 headset. I installed the realtek drivers from ASUS download section for my motherboard and then I installed the headset drivers.The problem is that my headset does not record anything through the microphone if I set it to be the default device for audio output. If I have my other computer speakers as the default output device my microphone works just fine.This goes for all the USBs in the back of the motherboard. The headset works just great if I plug in the wireless reciever in the front of the computer.I have tried to reinstall the drivers multiple times and checked a bunch of different settings in the sound manager in windows but nothing seems to work.Have also googled all kinds of things but nothing seems to relate to my problem.I do not have any external sound card plugged into my computer.Thanks for any help provided!
Just livin life.
Hi iBSOADed and welcome to TenForums,
First of all, you shouldn't have had to worry about installing any drivers after installing Windows 10 as Windows should do that automatically.
Have you tried using the Corsair Gaming Headset Setup program in the Downloads section of this page? VengeanceĀ® 2100 Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset
Hello and thanks for your reply
I wasn't aware of windows 10 installing the drivers automatically. I uninstalled the realtek drivers and then let windows 10 install it's own after I had read about this after some googling.
Yes, I did use those drivers from that page with the same results I'm afraid.

Have you checked to see if the microphone is disabled?
To make sure that the microphone is not disabled, please follow the steps below.
a. Right click on the volume icon and select Recording devices.
b. Now, Right Click on an empty space and select, Show disconnected devices and Show disabled
c. Make sure that the Microphone is not disabled.
It is not disabled no, apologies for the late reply.
Just livin life.
Is there another computer you could test the headset on? Perhaps a friends computer?
Did the headset work before Windows 10?
It worked great before Windows 10. So I don't think it's the headset. Also it works on the front IO ports.
I recently got a new headset with a mic, as i have been using an external mic that was separate from my old headphones and was really old and dodgy. The new headset i got was the Plantronics Rig Flex LX. It has really good sound quality...
Hi everyone. Last month, I installed Windows 10 preview on my 2012 macbook pro via bootcamp. Today I tried to use my headset for the first time in Windows 10 (Skullcandy SLYR). Audio seems okay, but the microphone isn't detected. In "Manage Audio...

Ever since I upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10, I've been experiencing brief audio popping/cracking noise. Sometimes I could go an hour and not hear anything, other times I hear a pop every 30 seconds. There has to be sound playing for the...
Since upgrading to Windows 10, 64-bit, I have no audio on the headset. Also, speakers are not muted when headset is plugged in.
Headset checks out O.K. on sound test.
