    USB Microphone cuts out every few minutes

    Hello. I have a USB microphone for my computer. When I use it it will work for 5-15 minutes, before suddenly just recording nothing and displaying a 1 bar signal in my Recording Devices sound menu. Sometimes I can get it to work again if I unplug the mic and put it back in to another slot, but not always. I'd really appreciate some help, thanks!

    Check the manufacturer of your sound device like Creative, SigmaTel, Realtek, and visit their website for driver updates. Sometimes old driver causes such issue. update us if that doesn't solves the issue
